She wrote:

“What Taedong couldn’t say because of crying was that he was less than 2 years old [Entertainment], his mobile phone was forcibly taken from him and he was unable to keep in touch with family members. In addition to changing his phone number several times, they set his password and checked his phone. Without a rest day, kids would be forced to exercise 15 to 17 hours a day.”

I am very angry with the president of 2Y Entertainment who slapped and verbally abused me [Taedong]he’s so quiet now,” she explained in detail.
