Yoon Chan Young (윤찬영), the Korean actor who rose to fame as the male lead in the new Netflix zombie series “All Of Us Are Dead”, has been embroiled in school bullying and misogyny allegations.
According to AllKpop, the rumours were started by a netizen way back in 2016. Apparently, the old post began making its rounds on Twitter again now that the cast members of the hit K-drama series started gaining nationwide popularity.
In the allegations posted by the netizen back in September of 2016, the actor was allegedly involved in creating a ranking of female students and teachers according to different standards during his final year in middle school. The incident took place back sometime in 2015, the netizen claimed.
The controversial post is read as follows:
“I still didn’t know how serious our country’s misogyny was last year. In school, they always taught that discrimination against females has decreased, and I really thought it was true. I don’t know if it’s because we were taught this, that I was more dense to it, but in the middle of this is when the situation exploded. Instead of saying it exploded, maybe it’s better to say a kid found a paper.
During lunch, I saw that my friends were looking at a piece of paper and whispering, and I was wondering why they were swearing so I looked too. The paper was a ranking of our class’ female students based on beauty standards. Our female teacher was also ranked. I was the top in the top 3 faces, and I don’t remember very well but the girls were ranked according to different standards.
Our ethics teacher told everyone else except those listed in the paper and those who did the ranking to go home. She told the perpetrators to come out and face the wall. The perpetrators were Park Joo Hyung, Im Se Hyun, and Hong Ji Pyo. Yes, it’s true. Child actor Yoon Chan Young.”
The accuser also revealed that she had received an apology from Yoon Chan Young via KakaoTalk and shared screenshots of the text messages on social media. The 20-year-old allegedly said that the ranking list was only made for fun, and he never thought of going too far (with his actions). He also assured the netizen that he regrets his past bad deeds.
