Proofs of Park Bom’s past dugged up, matches ‘traumatic soccer story’!
There has been additional new confirming that Park Bom (also known as Jenny Park) was on a soccer team in the US and that there was in fact a tragic accident in the field which caused the death of a friend. News reports about incidents in Park Bom’s past are now being dug up due to the recent drug scandal the singer is in.
Park Bom, whose American name is Jenny Park, is a known alumna of Gould Academy, with the official Twitter account of the school even tweeting for her single, “Don’t Cry”.
In the articles, a student by the name of Jenny Park is mentioned for a story on Gould Academy’s top athletes in their soccer team by Sun Journal. The quote reads, “Jenny Park, a sophomore from Seoul, Korea, received the junior varsity coach’s award.” (Dated December 8, 1998). In another article by the same Sun Journal, dated October 7, 2000, an article reads the morbid title, "Young soccer player’s death ruled result of aneurysm". This matches the traumatic soccer story told by Yang Hyun Suk about Park Bom.
In the article, the journalist describes how emotional the incident was for students at Gould. The headmaster for Gould Academy revealed in a statement, “We stood on the spot and had a very emotional 45 minutes there.”
In a recent blog post YG’s Yang Hyun Suk explained that after witnessing a sudden death of a friend on the field, Park Bom went through very difficult times, having to undergo psychotherapy and psychological treatment at the same time. She had been consistently taking medication officially prescribed by a famous university-affiliated hospital in the U.S.
