On the October 14th broadcast of SBS Power FM's 'Bae Sung Jae's 10', Yewon shared, "At the beginning of my debut, I thought my honesty was a strength, but now I tend to be careful and think about what I say multiple times. My new motto is, 'Let's think about it 5 times before speaking.'"

As for her future plans, she said, "I plan to appear on multiple programs in the future. I want to do a travel show in particular." When asked if she'd be okay with 'Law of the Jungle', Yewon answered, "Of course, I'd like that a lot."

    http://www.allkpop.com/article/2015/03/footage-containing-the-argument-between-lee-tae-im-and-yewon-revealed-shows-yewon-speaking-informally/3186025 ... <-- At this URL ; AKP user @0toujours_belle0 said of the YEWON and LEE TAE IM controversy --> ... "Reading this again, it seemed that Lee Tae Im was just not having the best of days. And Yewon speaking that way only provoked her much more. If someone called me a bitch for that little of a reason, I probably would have responded like Yewon. I mean, she only talked to her informally. I know that's a big deal in Korea. But she didn't even let Yewon explain. And then she started name calling? It seems bizarre to me. If she really is older and a sunbae, (then) she should have the patience and humor to handle that in a right way. eh mola ~ Past is Past." ... (End Quote) ... WELL said! ... And both YEWON and LEE TAE IM have stated that they would prefer to 'bury' this *unplanned* incident in the past. It is something that happened, that *both* of them regret it.

    As added comment, YEWON has taken some 'heat' due to STAR EMPIRE AGENCY trying to 'manipulate' the situation to the advantage of YEWON in a DECEPTIVE manner. Which, YEWON is likely NOT the person deciding to do this DECEPTION. YEWON has to pretty much 'go along' with what her AGENCY thinks is 'clever' in all this. Which, it turned out that STAR EMPIRE AGENCY was *not* so 'clever' on it. I think that YEWON has taken enough 'heat' on this controversy. It was UNPLANNED, and unfortunate. (Joking) It is NOT as though YEWON did tie together the SHOE LACES of KIM TAE IM, so that she would trip and fall! ... ;-)

    the problem here is that . she and the staff denied that she spoke informally so lee tae im ended up apologizing and being treated like a psycho . but then a video was leaked . people are blaming her more for lying than speaking informallu

    I hear you. I would add that, YEWON is in this CONTROVERSY with K-MEDIA SCRUTINY too. So, YEWON wants to appear NOT AT FAULT. Which, her AGENCY wants that too. So, they 'play hardball' and it 'backfires' on them. I am NOT saying that YEWON is on some 'victimized' HIGH ROAD of MORALITY in all of this. ONLY that what actually 'went on' in their 'friction event' seems NOT that big a deal, to me. That JEWON and her *AGENCY* decided to 'twist the truth' to 'look good' was NOT a good decision. But again, I will guess this is more the AGENCY, than YEWON herself being the 'mastermind' of a 'sinister plot' somehow.

    Actually for Asian, they perfer someone to be humble and even if you are the best, you still have to not act like some big shot, and show respect to elders or your seniors. there is an idiom in Chinese, "When you drink water, think of it's source" and You always have to remind yourself where you start from and the people you have to thank. While some cultures believe you should be confident and if you think you can do better than someone older or more senior than you, you should show it to him and flaunt your skills, however it will look rude in an Asian culture, to do better than your seniors and make them look bad in the public.

    And it's a system that leaves many open to being abused by the assumed power their 'superiors' are handed without having to earn it.

    They have the 'right' personality. They talk about liking ice cream, what pretty male celebrities are their type, how they like to cheer their fans on. Funnily enough none of them ever tend to talk about the way the country is run, or announce they'd like to get a nipple piercing. In fact, no teen idol girls every seem to say anything remotely unlikable.

    what I learned in the US is to be a basement dwelling, bottom-10%-bitter moron who knows nothing about anywhere outside my mom's house and walmart who spouts a bunch of nonsense. first of all the problem yewon ran into was the fact that she and her powerful agency COLLUDED to destroy the career of a less powerful actress. what does that have to do with your racist screed? second LOL @ your cringe assertion that individuality is a "sin" in Asia. are you literally a 40 year old Stormfront rat literally living in your mom's basement? what marginally-clued in person born after 1980 even believes that? do you believe that all blacks are violent too? super cringe.

    I understand your point but you must think that while Korea and USA are now both considered first world country, USA took many hundreds of years to arrive at where they are, in the past, you talk about how no one talk about the way its run etc but in the past, ladies in USA also had little say in areas of business or politics and are treated unfairly in workplaces also, it took many years and generations to come this far. while Korea was came from a war torn poverty country in the fifties, to a first world country in the 21st century in 50 years or 60 years, it may be econmically rich but their freedom of speech and open to talk about sensitive issues like gay and such, are still largely conservative and taboo. Korea society may see changes and more acceptance in many generations to come.

    There's a difference between general honesty and being just plain rude.

    She wasn't being honest, she was being a brat. And even after all that ~reflection~, she STILL hasn't changed a single thing. I don't even think she believes she was in the wrong. She needs to think much longer and harder and work on not being such a self-centered and manipulative human being.
