From Kylie Jenner's top secret pregnancy to Ariana and Pete's tumultuous relationship, last year was definitely a rollercoaster for hollywood celebrities and their fans alike. It was hard to believe that all of that happened in just 12 months!
How about Korean celebrity scandals? Here are some of the most unforgettable and shocking Korean celeb affairs and controversies of all time.
To begin with, the four sexual assault charges made towards K-Pop idol Park Yoo Chun rocked the K-Pop industry domestically and internationally. Damage was done to his reputation. Back in 2017, four women filed separate charges against Yoo Chun with the police report stating that he raped those women who were working at different Karaoke entertainment bars, mostly in the bathroom stalls of the bars and in his bathroom.
However, Yoo Chun was found to be innocent and some women were sentenced to two years in prison for false accusations and attempted extortion. C-Jes Entertainment released a statement saying, “Park Yoo Chun would like to offer his deepest apology to the public, and will use this incident to reflect on himself.”
Mr. Park recently held his fan meeting in lieu of his birthday celebration. This meeting was the first in 3 years after his scandals and breaking up with his fiancé. He first greeted his fans through VCR, apologizing for what had happened and commented on how he does not deserve such love from them, even after all the controversies. He also thanked his fans as they were the one who allowed him to overcome his hard times.
We can’t skip the love affair of Actress Kim Min Hee and Film Director Hong Sang Soo. It is alleged that the actress was the first to express her feelings for the director, who had a young adult daughter from his marriage. Ms. Kim was 22 years younger than the director, but eventually, she succeeded in stealing his heart. In a manner of speaking, she snatched him away, devastating his family members. Mr. Hong is also to blame. It has been reported that Director Hong has refiled for divorce after it was denied the first time. The couple continues to receive criticism from netizens who disapprove of their relationship. They say, “Are you happy you ruined your whole family? Your love is truly disgusting. I don’t want to hear news about crazy people.” Despite the news of their breakup from the source, the couple is evidently still going strong and putting up a fight to achieve their happy ending. However, we should be mindful that happiness ends if it emerges trampling others’ happiness.
