Lee Kuk Ju gave her thoughts on social status and work through Instagram on October 14.

She wrote, "Just because they use us and bother us doesn't make them higher in ranking and us lower in ranking.  We, whom they don't pay heed to and disregard, are really the better ones.  Just because they have a lot of money and are higher-ups do not mean they are better at all.  I don't care whether I fall to the lowest rank, I just want to work with good people."


Looks like she's fed up with work and the people around her? She's addressing quite a lot of topics like wealth, social status, hierarchies, and more. What do you make of this?



우릴 이용하고 우릴 괴롭힌다고 그들이 갑이고 우리가 을이 아닙니다!! 그런 그들을 신경안쓰고 무시해버리는 우리가 갑입니다!! 여러분 돈이많다고 나보다 윗사람이라고 갑이 아니아니아니오 ^~^ 우리도 갑이될수있어요 #갑을병정 #정이되어도좋으니 #좋은사람들과일하고싶다그램 ㅋㅋㅋ

    Sounds like someone (most likely a higher up in entertainment, CEO or PD or MC of some sort) was using his/her status to be an asshole. Just because you're higher in some way doesn't give you the right to be an asshole. Might be of higher positions, but as a human being they're the lowest of the low. Good for her on speaking up!

    all people in whatever industry should be treated fair. some say she may not gain that much after this comment but you know what they read it and they will think about it. it may not bite those higher ups now but it will in the future. I also want to work with good people

    Showbusiness or not, this happens to people who are employed by people who have more money and power. So unless you're capable of standing on your own and make a name for your self, don't bite the hands that feed you.

    I'm a dancer and a violinist. I've worked in more countries than I can now remember. I'm a Korean woman and I can tell you the places and people who have treated me like personal property or trash were not just Koreans. As a matter of fact the only countries where I've never been groped or had to endure macho puke were Canada, New Zealand, Ireland and France.

    BAD IDEA for LEE KUK JU to be posting this type of comment. NOTHING to gain from it. And maybe future *potential* employers of LKJ will think *twice* now. And *wonder* if LKJ might say something not so kind about them.

    LKJ maybe be *completely* correct in her views. But, what does she GAIN from saying it? NOTHING that matters, as i see it. Unless feeling good about 'VENTING' counts that much ... ;-)

    Maybe future potential employers won't be calling her names or insulting her looks.

    My view, would be that LEE KUK JU would *likely* be *better* off to do her criticism of an employer in a PRIVATE manner. Whereas, doing criticism 'Over The Internet' via SNS sites, does 'rub' employers the 'wrong way' in my view. It is LKJ's decision on it. I guess she feels that she can 'stand' whatever negative impact might come from it (using SNS for employer criticism).
