Reportedly, this new clause requires that in case an individual is accused as an assailant in a #MeToo case, the individual must pay for damages for a breach of contract. Even with some dramas which have already finished casting, the production companies have decided to reconstruct their contracts with actors to include the #MeToo clause.
In response, reps from management companies reacted with, "It's understandable, since many dramas suffered from the #MeToo movement recently. If you are an honorable person, than even if such a clause has been incorporated, you should not be worried. It is a good occurrence."
It seems that moving forward, actors/actresses who become accused as being assailants in a #MeToo case must not only refund their contract payment, but also pay additional damages.
