“Should I burn you with a curling iron?”… Former girl group member criticized for “school violence” joke

Hwangbo, a presenter and former member of the group Chakra, recently appeared on the YouTube channel “Pakou Bro” and talked about various things with comedian Yoon Sung Ho.

During their conversation, the story of the Netflix original series “The Glory” suddenly popped up. Hwangbo asked Yoon Sung Ho: “Wait, did you watch ‘The Glory’?” and he replied “Yes, I’ve already watched it.” However, the problem was Hwangbo’s attention after that.

Hwangbo recalled the scene where Park Yeon Jin (Lim Ji Yeon) used a curling iron to bully a classmate in “The Glory”.

Yoon Sung Ho asked “Should I singe you with a curling iron?”. Yoon Sung Ho shook his head and asked Hwangbo: “Did you ever do that when you were at school?”

Hwangbo denied this by saying “It’s just my image.” When asked if she hit other children, Hwangbo immediately repeated: “Just an Image”stressing that she had never committed violence at school in the past.


Then Hwangbo explained, “Even when I borrowed something from other students, I returned it the next day”adding “The last person I hit was Yoon Sung Ho, and it’s not school violence.”

Since “school violence” is a touchy topic these days due to the popularity of “The Glory”, the conversation between the two caused frowns among netizens.

Internet users who watched the video on YouTube commented, “What’s with the remark about the curling iron?”, “Maybe they were talking as a joke, but it’s still a show”, “Why mention such things? It would make people hate you,” etc.


Recognizing the negative reactions from viewers, the YouTube channel removed a segment of the video where the curling iron was mentioned.
