Actor Nam Joo-hyuk has denied allegations of school bullying from a third accuser, adding to denials last month after two other men made similar allegations.

In a report published by the Sports Kyunghyang on Wednesday, a woman who wished to remain anonymous, told the news outlet that the actor was part of a group of school bullies, who invited her to group chat and disparaged her using sexual slurs and hateful comments. This incident happened in May 2012 when they were high school seniors, and the bullies apologized to her after facing pressure from teachers, she said.

Nam's agency, Management Soop, immediately denied the allegation made against the actor, warning that it will file a libel suit against the accusers.
