HYBE makes statement explaining Kim Garam (LE SSERAFIM) receiving a Degree 5 punishment in school bullying controversy

The latest on the bullying scandal involving LE SSERAFIM member Kim Garam was that following an alleged victim coming forward, Source Music released a detailed statement saying she will go on hiatus but that she was the victim of bullying. Following this, the Ministry Of Education confirmed the authenticity of the school violence committee’s ruling. In this regard, an official from the Ministry of Education said, “In the case of school violence, the intensity of the measures taken by each school is also different because of the strong autonomous nature and the different tendencies of the participating experts [in these committees].””However, it seems to be true that there was school violence, as Kim Garam was named as an assailant student.” Meanwhile, lawyers were confused about her getting fifth-level disposition and not appealing it, as that is usually a serious charge to have on one’s record. Even lawyers who have dealt with many school violence cases are puzzled, saying, “In general, it is extremely rare to issue a 5th level disposition in the absence of physical violence.” However, some expressed skepticism about HYBE’s statement due to the fact that Kim Garam received Degree 5 disciplinary action from the school violence committee, meaning that both she and her parents were required to undergo a special educational course on violence. In South Korea, school violence committees are typically only called for serious cases of bullying and violence (as opposed to verbal arguments between students), and when disciplinary action is taken, there are nine degrees of punishment with varying levels of severity: Degree 1 (the lightest) is ordering the perpetrator to make an apology, while Degree 9 (the harshest) is expulsion. Starting from Degree 5, the perpetrator’s parents are also required to complete an educational course on violence. According to the Ministry of Education, Degree 5 is “a measure taken when it seems unlikely that measures such as community service will be enough to make the student perpetrator feel remorse for their actions on their own, in order to reform their mindset on violence and make them reflect on their actions through the help of a professional.” As most of the disciplinary action taken in school violence cases—even ones that involve physical assault—usually falls somewhere between Degrees 1 and 3, it is uncommon for Degree 5 disciplinary action to be taken in a case where there was no physical assault. Therefore, many expressed confusion over how Kim Garam’s case could have warranted Degree 5 punishment without any physical violence. This whole thing has been going surprisingly mainstream.
