Recently Popular K-actor Park Eun Seok in Another Scandal After Revealed to Have Been Sued for Defamation Last Year

There is a Chinese saying 人红是非多 which means a popular (famous) person has many controversies. Case in point Park Eun Seok, who before SBS drama Penthouse where he played a supporting role that got a lot of audience popularity, was just a no-name struggling actor. After he shot to name recognition with Penthouse, he was cast on variety I Live Alone but the last two weeks have seen one scandal after another. First was his rehoming/abandoning a string of pets issue, which has some validity, which is one should never buy a pet unless you’re nearly absolutely sure you can raise it. He rehomed each for various reasons but it felt like he was just so casual about getting more pets the next time, self-absorbed was the feeling I got. Now a second controversy has been revealed which was a lawsuit for defamation filed in Seoul Court against him by another entertainment colleague. The person was Park Eun Seok’s senior in college and casting director/actor and is accusing Park Eun Seok of posting his name, picture and warning that he was a scammer on a large K-ent chat group text thread. That caused him severe distress and he felt targeted as the allegation was untrue. The case is still pending and was filed before Penthouse aired so clearly it’s not an opportunistic one to take down Park Eun Seok after he got popular.

  2. There was a report that the person he accused is actually a problematic person… PES was just warning his colleagues, so I don’t think this is an scandal…but still damage his image having so many negative articles plus I’m still not convinced by his excuse in the pet scandal.

  3. Give me a break. I don’t know this dude and I haven’t watched Penthouse, but I’ve been around K-ent long enough to know if you get popular people come out of the woodwork with often wacky issues. This guy could be a jerk but falling on hard times and actually finding new homes for your animals is actually a responsible thing to do. If the people who accepted the animals had issues with him getting new pets instead of taking back his old ones, I would understand it a bit more. I have family in rural US and dumping of pets is a problem. My aunt is on her 5th dog that she found dumped. People rationalize they are leaving them to live their best life in nature…no, they will get taken out by a car or a predator. Again, maybe he is trash, but probably this is the normal envy and resentment of someone finally getting some success.

    • Agree. I found that post on his rehomimg pets a tad overblown as if he’d committed the worst crime in humanity. And Koala’s tone here sounds like she already has a grudge against the guy and is siding with the accuser against him without knowing all the facts. “…clearly it’s not an opportunistic one to take down Park Eun Seok after he got popular“? Hth do you know what his motives are? Witch-hunt, much? Smh.
