Well this is no bueno, but probably not a career ending type of scandal. K-actor Choi Jin Hyuk made all the K-ent headlines today for being the most famous person in a 50-plus guest list bust by the police of an illegally operating bar establishment during a sweep. Illegal meaning no bars are allowed to operate right now during level-4 COVID restrictions so this place was open in violation of that, not that it was running anything else illegal. Honestly, I’m sure there are many more illegally operating establishments flouting COVID-19 restrictions so it’s always just a matter of odds whether frequenting one would happen to coincide with a police search. Choi Jin Hyuk apologized immediately, accepted all responsibility, and he and the production of variety show My Little Old Boy (Mom’s Diary: My Ugly Duckling) have come to joint agreement that he will leave the show immediately and all his scenes edited out that have been filmed but not yet aired. I’m just glad he’s not in a currently airing drama because the impact would be so much bigger and hopefully he’ll just drink at home or friend’s house until this all blows over.
