A publicity stunt begets another and then another as the Yang Ye Won photo scandal in May now turns squarely into collateral damage territory. Recall that Youtube star Yang Ye Won published a teary video about how naked pictures of her were published without her permission, naming the studio that took the pictures and asserting she was assaulted by men. Suzy reposted the story on her SNS and that’s when it blew up and everyone and their mothers was supporting Yang Ye Won and calling for the heads of the studio and men involved. In the subsequent days the studio revealed that the ownership long changed and it was now owned by someone totally not involved in the Yang Ye Won story, and later text messages of the owner of the studio who took the pictures revealed that Yang Ye Won willingly posed for them to make money. Now the new studio owning is suing Suzy in civil court for defamation. I don’t think the case has any merit but as a publicity stunt it’s brilliant. Suzy may just have to lay low for a bit on SNS.
