Girl Group April’s Lee Na Eun Leaves Upcoming SBS Drama Taxi Driver Due to Bullying Allegations, Drama 60% Done with Filming and Finding Replacement

Another K-drama casting switcheroo is happening, also due to the recent spate of bullying allegations against younger generation stars. Girl Group April‘s Lee Na Eun, who got her big acting break in Extraordinary You, was hoping to start her more serious acting career with upcoming SBS drama Taxi Driver (Taxi). Alas that step will now have to wait has she has left the production, which is 60% done with filming, and the network will be quickly finding an actress replacement. The bullying allegations against her are primarily lobbed by the younger brother of a former April idol mate Hyunjoo who already left the group a few years prior but recently the bullying allegations claimed it was due to bullying by group mates including Lee Na Eun. I think it’s best for the production for her departure until the matter is sorted out, and if it’s true then her career in K-ent will be facing a steep uphill battle.

  2. I was reading these comments from teachers in SK saying how bullying is really THAT BAD as shown in dramas :s ..

  3. Well, the victim was bullied to the point of make suicide attempt…a 16 years old girl almost lost her life because of this woman…so, I will say she deserve to lose her career too

    • technically the whole group. some said that the bullying started with the member who’s in Kard now. so maybe this girl wasn’t the main bully but of course her actions contributed – allegedly. anyone deserves innocent till proven guilty.

  4. How can people live with themselves after what they’ve done? I was a bystander to a bullying episode and to this day it fills me with so much guilt that I didn’t stand up for this person. Meanwhile actual bullies flounce around living their lives….

  5. The allegations may have been made by the younger brother of the victim, but I think it’s because she is still in contract with her agency, DSP. Her ig stories have also been heartbreaking, especially back during AOA group bullying was exposed. It seemed like she deeply empathized with AOA Mina because she was in the same situation.

    It’s better for the drama to drop her now rather than be branded by the public as the drama that supports a bully.

  6. I really hope there will be more victim speak up to public against the rich and power,anyhow theres a bad face reputation with korean celebrity,if the bullying become their normal life,but to make the world better and peace,we need to know,as the citizen we need to know,who are deserved to be praised or to be vanished
