On the September 14th episode of JTBC's 'Talk Hero', she talked about how she spent her time when she took a hiatus. Yewon suffered a lot of criticism after footage of her speaking informally to Lee Tae Im during filming for MBC's 'Tutoring Across Generations' arose last year, and she took time away from the spotlight.

She said, "I have experience keeping my mouth closed. When I had to spend time at home, I purposely made work for myself. For dental work that could've been done in one day, I separated my appointments into multiple days."

Yewon also explained how she avoided hanging out with friends, saying, "When my friends asked me what I was doing, I could just use the dentist as an excuse to not go out."

wow.. that's just awful :/

what exactly happened that was so terrible she had to go into one of those "time of reflection" periods?

Well, it wasn't so much the incident but the way her agency decided to handle it. Yewon and Tae Im were shooting for a variety show, Yewon was speaking to her co-star in an informal way to create a friendly atmosphere for viewers. But Tae Im was not happy at all and became very bad tempered. When Yewon tried to talk about it Tea Im scolded her and even remarked that she should hit Yewon for disrespecting her. Initially most people took Yewon's side saying Tae Im overreacted to the point of being a bully, Yewon's agency really made out like Yewon had done nothing wrong. But then the footage came out and people saw that Yewon did in fact speak informally to Tae Im. Even though they still felt Tae Im overreacted no one liked that Yewon lied about how she had behaved that day. So both women became the villains.

i know this is random but ... i thought is was Jisoo from the picture ^^

She's her doppelganger,

smokeee Wednesday, September 14, 2016

be strong yewon!  never forget they can take away your dignity but you'll always have amazing boobs!

Atbash Wednesday, September 14, 2016

Just a simple informal "NO" almost finish Yewon's career. She couldn't even finish WGM. LTI was the psycho who started the whole scandal. Yewon "fighting".

lyricaldancer10 Atbash Wednesday, September 14, 2016

The informal "NO" and then saying she didn't do anything wrong is what almost finished her career. If they came out saying she did speak informally it would have been better.

Atbash lyricaldancer10 Wednesday, September 14, 2016

The one who made that mistake was not Yewon, it was her agency. She couldn't do anything about it.

lyricaldancer10 Atbash Friday, September 16, 2016

Guilt by association. That's how it works in the world. Personally if I was her I would've told the truth. Especially since someone's career was almost ruined. I wouldn't have acted like I did anything wrong because of the guilt of knowing I did play a tiny role in it

Atbash lyricaldancer10 Friday, September 16, 2016

You must know that for an actress or Idol in korea is completely different. Agencies are practically their owners. They need to do what the agency says, period. After the scandal her agency released an official statement in Yewon's favor. That was wrong but she couldn't do anything about it. Anyway, LTI was the one that went crazy and caused the whole thing.

lyricaldancer10 Atbash Friday, September 16, 2016

I think they both played a role in it. The only difference is that LTI admitted her problem from the beginning and explained her actions. If yewon would have done that she would have been criticized, but would have been better off.

JYJRainbow Wednesday, September 14, 2016

yewon fighting!

BigBlueagain Wednesday, September 14, 2016

So basically she had to hide in her own home because of the psychobitchfromhell and a culture with institutionalized bullying. And for those of you supporting LTI? fuck you and the whore that shit you out.

oli BigBlueagain Wednesday, September 14, 2016

no reason to curse people out ^^ Honestly, the whole thing was blown so out of proportion! Some korean netizen just need to chill. I felt so bad for yewon, I really like her and hope it's going to get better now with job opportunites etc.

BigBlueagain oli Wednesday, September 14, 2016

I'm just pissed that those fetal psychos made her afraid to go out just because she stood up for herself. And yeah, it was blown WAY out.

JYJRainbow BigBlueagain Wednesday, September 14, 2016

so ethics are stupid? its just that some korean made mountain out of mole hill, I too think that lee tae im is more at fault,she shouldn't act like that,but she was exhausted,sleep deprived, and she couldn't handle a person being rude to her,she doesn't knew that she is filmed and the media will make it an issue, she said sorry so I let it go. yes, yewon is more victim here,she didn't even talk informally. it was just no that was informal , Anyways lee tae im wasn't a criminal too just a human. she suffered a lot too. if you want to blame someone blame media

It's crazy there! Have you heard what Tablo had to go through just because someone accused him for not actually attending a top-notch university in America? It was proven multiple times that he did go there by several people who studied with him but some netizens even created an Anti club for that -.- he had ro wait several years until he could come back, srsly crazy..

BigBlueagain oli Wednesday, September 14, 2016

IKR? They complain about their kids killing themselves and then perpetuate this institutional BS and call it "culture". And then you have the people with no morals at all who make excuses for people simply because they're famous.

JYJRainbow oli Wednesday, September 14, 2016

yeah harvard don't sell their degree to prince,and they said he buys it lol, I fought with so many haters here for him,so many came under junsu and tablo article when they collaborated

oli BigBlueagain Wednesday, September 14, 2016

Yeah, i think it is a cultural problem that arrived with modern technology (internet) and they don't really know how to solve these problems. But there are also a lot of people trying to get attention for these problems so maybe in a few years it won't be as extreme anymore. Although conservative views have a lot to do with this as well...

BigBlueagain oli Wednesday, September 14, 2016

The dark side of this is that it gives that PC run amok BS power it should NEVER have had. I don't have the right to NOT be offended. I'd actually rather have some asshole say something offensive to me so I know what I'm dealing with and can ignore it like the insect it is if I so choose. This enabling assholes to hide behind language pisses me off. (steps off soapbox)

michinpabo BigBlueagain Wednesday, September 14, 2016

What pisses me off is.. they don't seem to know how to take internet comments with a grain of salt. They treat every complaint or hateful comment like it's backed up with conviction instead of what it really is.. pathetic people just bullshitting around on their computer.

NgohiongPuso BigBlueagain Wednesday, September 14, 2016

I'd like to support you on that.. frack you supporters of LTI... Horray for institutionalized bullying... :)

whogivesa BigBlueagain Wednesday, September 14, 2016

LTI may be a psycho but this girl and her agency are opportunistic liars. No victims here imo.

Atbash BigBlueagain Wednesday, September 14, 2016

Amen bro!!

BigBlueagain whogivesa Wednesday, September 14, 2016

With the reaction that people like you gave her for defending herself. I don't blame her one bit. You people? Plenty of blame.

kpoplolipop BigBlueagain Wednesday, September 14, 2016

You are overacting. Did you forget what happened? Initially Yewon was projected as the victmn LTI was seen as the bad guy And she made a claim that Yewon spoke to her informally which is considered disrespectful coming from a hoobae that’s not close to you, to which (here comes the important part) her company DENIED that Yewon ever did that. Then the video was leaked showing that Yewon did speak to her informally. The thing that was bad about this was LTI was being painted as the bad guy and Yewon or her company saying Yewon didn’t speak informally meant that LTI was a liar. LTI also got cut from her drama I believe. Yewon or her company’s lie could have really damaged LTI’s reputation and THAT is much worse than LTI going off on Yewon because she was supposedly having a bad day AND yewon did in fact speak to her informally. And to my remembrance LTI apologized….

whogivesa BigBlueagain Wednesday, September 14, 2016

So it's ok to lie if you know you did something wrong and ppl will criticize you for it? A coward's move. Ppl like you are the problem. It's not ok that this girl thought she could get away w destroying someone's career over lies. Very happy footage was released revealing this girl for the lying snake she is. Both LTI and Yewon have awful attitudes. Both should've stayed out the entertainment business imo.

BigBlueagain whogivesa Wednesday, September 14, 2016

Good thing your opinion counts for nothing then.

Chillz BigBlueagain Thursday, September 15, 2016

why are people giving your disgusting comment a thumbs up?? How can you say something so dirty? You should be EXTREMELY ASHAMED FOR saying something like " the whore that shit you out."

BigBlueagain Chillz Sunday, September 18, 2016

Simple. People who support that kind of abuse deserve nothing less and I'm not afraid to tell it like it is. Those upvoting me don't. Far to often people do evil things and get away with it simply because they were polite then they did it.

BigBlueagain Sunday, September 18, 2016

... and Chillz likes being able to bully people and doesn't like those who stand up to people like him. Anyone else want to make their presence known?

daFoolio Wednesday, September 14, 2016

she lucky she still has a career.... sagajee~~

JYJRainbow daFoolio Wednesday, September 14, 2016

I hope she become more famous in future
