    I guess the industry has shunned her as a result of the MWTS incident. A pity cos she’s a sweetie and one of South Korea’s beauties.

    Yea, it’s sad that her peers didn’t stand up and fight in her defence when those with the power in the industry obviously blacklisted her. It isn’t like the audience cares about all that, and it isn’t like insurance would not have covered the loss in production costs.

    It’s abuse of power.

    And it says something about the industry over there. If you piss-off a director, a manager or a Network suit, you can be blacklisted till you’ve lost your good looks. Such savagery!

    One might infer from that all kinds awful things that’d befall a young actress trying to make it in her field. The stories about the couch in the director/producer’s office seem even more plausible.

    She’s one of the amazing Korean actresses. I have been looking forward for her next drama however, there is none coming. She must have a valid reason why she walked out of the shoot. Perhaps the directors and scriptwriters have stood up against her. They should realize what they are losing…I am not Korean but I like watching Kdramas as I could easily relate with the story –light yet deep. This actress is my favourite. Too sad, it seems everyone has shunt her.

    Wow she looks so different in Birth of a Beauty drama, so much plastic surgery

    Sandy Says:

    Seeing her pictures here, it’s no doubt that she’s had some plastic surgery–and not for the better. She looked better before surgery. Her smile now is so tight and unnatural. Still would love to see her in other dramas, but she has to increase her acting skills. They are not quite there.
