Bad behavior seemed to have slowed down in K-ent after the MeToo movement hit the shores a few weeks ago but clearly the youngsters have not all absorbed the lessons and severity of the repercussions. K-ent is reporting that actor Lee Seo Won has been under police investigation since early April for sexually harassing a female star and then later threatening to assault her with a weapon after she rejected his advances. This happened at a club and he was reportedly very drunk. He is now being changed with both sexual harassment and attempted assault, and the K-drama he’s currently filming About Time with Lee Sung Kyung and Lee Sang Yoon will replace him immediately and reshoot all scenes with him. The tvN drama was slated to premiere next week on May 21st so it’s not clear if a postponed is needed to reshoot quickly enough. Another tvN drama My Ahjusshi had to replace MeToo accused actor Oh Dal Soo and reshoot all his scenes but that replacement happened early on in filming with enough time to catch up.
Lee Seo Won’s agency Blossom Entertainment has released a statement that admits to Lee Seo Won’s alleged actions, apologizes for his drunken behavior, and states that the disgraced actor is reflecting. Lee Seo Won will also be removed from hosting Music Bank, of course, but now netizens are wondering who the alleged victim is and feeling bad for her if she worked on any project with Lee Seo Won.
