South Korean singer Seo In Young (서인영) recently appeared on the variety programme “TMI Show”. During the broadcast, the former member of the now-defunct group Jewelry talked about her rumoured beef with IU (아이유).
During the chat with MCs Boom and Mijoo (formerly from Lovelyz), the sassy celeb mentioned the “Beating IU in the bathroom” story as the most wildly illogical rumour she had ever heard personally. In case you don’t know, both In Young and the “My Mister” actress starred together in the reality show “Heroes” back in 2010.
In particular, it was rumoured that In Young dragged IU to the washing closet and assaulted her. In speaking about the situation, she cautiously stated, “Do I have to clear the air on the matter once again? I don’t know how that story managed to spread like that. Even IU denied the rumour,” the “One More Time” hit-maker clarified.
For those who are curious, during an interview in 2011, IU clarified that there’s no bad blood between her and In Young. In Young then said, “Calling it a beating case is too provocative. I hope people will refer to it as the ‘IU Washroom Case’ after this.”

In fact, this wasn’t the first time In Young ever addressed the long-term controversy. She also appeared to squash the alleged bad blood she had with the “Good Day” singer during her appearance on the show “It’s On Us”.
She said, “Why would I drag someone to the bathroom? If I really wanted to pick a fight with someone, I would just attack them at the waiting room. I never dragged IU to the bathroom (and assaulted her).”
