WINNER's Mino and Block B’s P.O helped actress Choi Ye Seul when she was bullied in high school
Actress Choi Ye Seul shared in an interview that WINNER’s Song Mino and Block B’s P.O helped her out when she was bullied in high school.
During Choi’s time as a high school student, she transferred to an art school that future rappers Mino and P.O were also attending.
She revealed the following in her interview with My Daily: “At that time, I was obsessed with the drama Boys Over Flowers, then I was bullied by female classmates for imitating Geum Jan Di.”
The two idols are nice guys now, and they were nice guys then as they stood up for the transfer student.
Choi said, “At that time, Song Mino and P.O helped me a lot. I am grateful to them. Perhaps they felt pity for a transfer student for being bullied [laughs].”
The three students have grown up to be successful in their own right. Choi’s most recent works include the 2015 dramas Mom and Angry Mom. The Japanese version of “Jackpot” from P.O’s group Block B reached number two on Japan’s Oricon daily singles chart upon its release on February 24. Mino’s group WINNER had a comeback on February 1 after nearly a year and a half on hiatus, achieving numerous number-ones on various music charts with their songs “Baby Baby” and “Sentimental” from their album EXIT:E.
Regardless of the fact that they are celebrities, it's great to know that as young men, they helped a fellow student. Bullying on- and offline is wrong! On another note, I can't help but think, wouldn't her story be a really good premise for a new K-drama?
