The Ji Soo fallout took all of four days, I think Joseon Exorcist getting cancelled took three days, and now in less than two days Seo Ye Ji has gone from newly minted Baeksang Best Actress nominee to persona non grata in K-ent. I don’t know if she’s done permanently or will go on hiatus to try and make a comeback, but for now she’s really not going to hard-nose her way through this scandal. The production team of OCN drama Island has confirmed that she will be leaving the production, which thankfully hasn’t started filming yet. It was slated to start production in June but will be pushed back a bit to make for rewriting her character and casting a new leading lady to join Kim Nam Gil and Cha Eun Woo. On her other work front, a brand New Origin has already deleted all images of her from its website where she was the face of its product campaign. She’s been on a hot CF streak since last year’s well received breakout role in It’s Okay to Not be Okay, which I loved the character and performance solely on a fictional scale. In real like Go Moon Young would be a terror even with her sob backstory, and now the whole reel-real feels blurred as her text exchanges with now ex-boyfriend Kim Jung Hyun absolutely reflects that type of personality (controlling, demanding, emotionally draining). Her side says there are more text messages to flesh out their dysfunctional relationship but honestly the two of them need to have the professionalism to keep that to their personal lives and not bring it to a production set and actually affect the filming and outcome of a drama. I’m still digesting all the craziness around the shitshow that was Time.
