Soon afterwards, more staffers came forward with accounts about Ryu. Ryu initially denied the rumours, but later admitted parts were true. After suffering from an intense backlash, including a flood of negative messages on her social media and a reduction of her role in Hello, My Twenties! 2 to a cameo, Ryu deleted her Instagram account.
