On January 16, a representative of Yuko Company stated, "Gong Seung Yeon has not received payment for her appearance in KBS2 'Master: God of Noodles'. Though she did receive a portion through KBS, no payment was made by the production company. A certification of contents has been sent for proof."
In addition, a media outlet revealed that actress Lee Na Young has yet to receive a total sum of 360 million KRW ($337,000) for her appearance in KBS2TV 'The Fugitive: Plan B' from 2010.
Marking a total of 8 years from 2010 until now in 2018, Lee Na Young's payments have not been settled. Furthermore, with the production company of 'The Fugitive: Plan B' shutting down, things have gotten more complicated as there is no way to reach anyone to address the issue.
The rest of 'The Fugitive' cast which included singer Rain, Lee Jung Jin, and extras at the time have also not received their payments. According to the outlet, Lee Jung Jin has yet to receive 35 million KRW ($32,849).
With such news coming to light, many are questioning the production procedures. Previously, actresses Sung Yuri, Kim Min Jung, Goo Hye Sun, Jung Yoo Mi, actors Kim Woo Bin, and Go Soo have been affected by the missing payments.
