SEOUL, March 3 (Yonhap) -- Lee Na-eun, a member of the girl group April, has been suspected of bullying members in the past as well as taking part in school violence. The K-pop singer made a special appearance on the Korean cooking show, "Delicious Rendezvous", however, SBS TV announced today that her scenes will be edited out of the episode.

SBS TV released a statement on March 3rd saying, "We will be removing Lee Na-eun's segment on this week's episode of 'Delicious Rendezvous' as much as possible."

"We decided to take such measures due to the recurrent issues related to school violence not because we wanted to cause inconvenience to our viewers", they added.

In 2016, former April member, Lee Hyun-joo left the girl group in order to pursue her career as an actress. However, recently people have asserted that Lee Hyun-joo's withdrawal from the group was due to being bullied by the other members. In addition to these rumors, Lee Na-eun was criticized again for being the alleged perpetrator for school violence in the past.

DPS Media, the girl group's management agency explained that "no one can be clearly divided as perpetrators or victims at this point," and referred to Lee Na-eun's allegations of school violence as "a groundless false fact" while also notify the public that legal action is planning to be taken place.
