This was a light speed finality to a sexual harassment allegation and one that heads in the right direction. Veteran stage-movie-drama actor Jo Jae Hyun has admitted to the sexual harassment allegations against him, and even went so far as to say that he’s admitting and repenting for his actions in the past thirty years of his career. He issued an apology, total acceptance of guilt, and said he will lay his life/work down now completely. He’s currently starring in the decently rated tvN drama Cross as male lead with Go Kyung Pyo and the production has stated that Jo Jae Hyun will be written off the drama as quickly as possible but it will not be an immediate action since as male lead he can’t just disappear abruptly from the narrative. My heart goes out to all the victims that Jo Jae Hyun has hurt and affected during his career.
While Jo Jae Hyun has taken full acceptance, Jo Min Ki was also taken out of the upcoming drama Children of the Lesser God after his harassment allegations came to light but he has not admitted to it. Oh Dal Soo is also being accused of sexual harassment over the years and he’s currently filming tvN drama My Ahjusshi and has not issued a response to the allegations. Further theater directer Lee Yoon Taek has also been accused of rape, sexual assault, and sexual harassment. I feel the dam breaking now…..
