According to the judgment released by Kim Chae-won, the most controversial 'bullying within the group' was summarized as "It is clear that there were general interpersonal problems within the group, but it is difficult to determine whether it is false because it is difficult to clearly determine this as bullying." .



The judgment stipulates that the 'disparity between members' is "a fact that the relevant witnesses state that it is not true, but it is difficult to judge that it is clearly false, considering that there may be differences depending on the subjective position of accepting the case."



Regarding the last 'dating with the manager', Kim Chae-won summarized the contents of the judgment, saying, "All the parties denied it, and both managers who the suspects pointed out directly stated that it was not true at all, so they judged it to be false."

However, the judgment stipulated that the 'dating with the manager' itself was confirmed to be false, but the evidence was insufficient to establish defamation because the suspect's false perception of this could not be estimated.
