COMPLETE Reasons & Alleged Proof Behind #JusticeForGaram Demand for Kim Garam Bullying Scandal Issue
So, what really happened to Kim Garam? Since the young idol left HYBE and LE SSERAFIM, more alleged friends and proof emerged about Kim Garam bullying scandal issue. And apparently, there is more to the story circulating on the internet.
And here are the complete reasons and proof behind the #JusticeForGaram demand from Serenes.
1. The Molka Incident by Yoo Eunseo is Confirmed – Kim Garam was NOT a Bully
The first among the important reason why fans are supporting Kim Garam is because they believe she is not bullying the alleged victim. By its definition, bullying is the repeated misuse of power through any behavior that intends to cause harm to the person who has no power to stop it from happening. However, that is not the case with Kim Garam
After Kim Garam left LE SSERAFIM, more alleged witnesses emerged with more proof of statements and testimonies. According to these witnesses, the alleged bullying victim, Yoo Eunseo, had indeed posted a photo of Kim Garam’s friend wearing underwear on social media. Not only that, during the previous reports, HYBE also stated the School Violence Committee reports also mentioned that Yoo Eunseo had indeed posted the photo.
This was the core issue of Kim Garam bullying scandal, which required forming a School Violence Committee. It didn’t happen one-sidedly like what the definition of bullying stated. Therefore, while what Kim Garam did was also a mistake, and she received punishment for it, fans believed it was not bullying. Instead, it was a school violence case – a result of wrongdoing from both sides.
The molka incident is true . It’s been confirmed in the SVC report, and there’s also a witness who confirmed it even before Hybe’s statement. Eunseo is the real bully not Kim Garam #JusticeForGaram pic.twitter.com/l4mZXFb3zS— Rey in the box 🃏 BAD DECISIONS (@Fuceducationsy1) July 21, 2022
it was an incident that “turned the school upside down” https://t.co/Yi8IEWU9h8 pic.twitter.com/P4Lm3bhIGg— HYBE ENABLED KIM GARAM’S BULLIES (@thegreatgaram) July 24, 2022
2. Alleged Victim Yoo Eunseo Evaded a Level 8 Punishment, Ended Up with a Level 6
Secondly, after Kim Garam left LE SSERAFIM, more alleged witnesses posted on Instagram about their side of the story regarding the bullying scandal issue.
In the statement, the alleged witnesses claimed that Yoo Eunseo was the bully. During the bullying scandal issue involving Kim Garam, alleged victim Yoo Eunseo was supposed to receive a Level 8 punishment from the school. However, she managed to avert the verdict by requesting the transfer herself.
This transfer request from Yoo Eunseo resulted in her receiving a Level 6 punishment. However, since Yoo Eunseo received Level 6 punishment from her new school, only a number of friends know what happened.
The same story also emerged from a friend who posted their chat conversation with Yoo Eunseo on social media.

garam’s friend leaked her chat with eunseo where eunseo herself confirmed she received a level 6 punishment – Suspension ‼️ she was about to receive a level 8, but left her old school. this girl is a real criminal but people are focused only on garam. WAKE UP #JusticeForGaram pic.twitter.com/WUsE3g2mH9— garam defender ♡ (@medidrafts) July 21, 2022
3. HYBE Holds All the Evidence but Remains Silent Despite Their Defense to Kim Garam
Previously, Source Music of HYBE firmly defended Kim Garam, stating that they have all the evidence proving Kim Garam’s innocence. However, they did not reveal any proof from Kim Garam side of the story on the bullying scandal issue. Instead, HYBE decided to end their exclusive contract with Kim Garam.
This decision from HYBE has angered Kim Garam fans. And that was especially when the alleged witness also mentioned that she had given all the proof and collected more friends’ testimonies about the bullying scandal issue.
Still, none of them was revealed to the public, most likely because it involved multiple minor participants.
4. Kim Garam is a Minor Who Became a Victim of Massive Bullying
On top of everything, the most crucial reason why Kim Garam fans are still firmly supporting her is because of all the massive hate and cyberbullying.
Kim Garam is still 16 years old, making her an underaged minor who has not even matured yet. The incident happened when she was in middle school, a pre-teenage phase when kids were full of hormones that resulted in bad decisions. However, the amount of hate and bullying she received was enormous. And it was due to a case that was simply claimed and revealed from only one side of the story.
Even after Kim Garam left LE SSERAFIM, many people continued calling her names. They also continued harassing her through social media posts and TikTok videos. While these people claimed Kim Garam is a bully, they participated in many actions of cyberbullying toward Kim Garam. And they keep doing it despite all the new emerging proof of testimony about Kim Garam bullying scandal issue.
That is why Kim Garam fans decided to step up and voice their support out loud for Kim Garam.

Garam’s side is consistent from the beginning, she is the victim.
Yoo Eunseo who was prepared to go any lengths to make Hybe apologise still didn’t get apology.
She was accused of S*xual harassment.
She’s received lvl 6 and evaded lvl 8.

You knew the truth! You had everything in your hand! SHE IS THE VICTIM! You had all the evidence and they trusted you.. Yet you abandoned and used a innocent kid for money, this is inhumain and unforgivable! pic.twitter.com/eaNdqaMC2P
❗️ Garam was proven INNOCENT by the school. That rumor has been spread around Garam’s school but luckily they found out. Eun-seo got punished by moving her to level 6.— garamcupcake (@garamcupcake) July 24, 2022
It’s really sad and disappointing for those people who ruined Garam’s career. 💔#JusticeForGaram
