'The World of the Married' actor Jung Jun Won parts ways with his agency after underage drinking and smoking scandal

AKP STAFF

Child actor Jung Jun Won, known for his role as Hae Gang in JTBC's 'The World of the Married,' has left his agency Dain Entertainment.

The management division of Dain Entertainment was recently acquired by Big Boss Entertainment, and in the process, Jung decided not to renew his contract with his agency. The 16-year-old actor is currently a free agent.

This news comes out roughly three and a half months after photos of the child actor partaking in underage drinking and smoking began spreading online. At the time of the scandal, Dain Entertainment put out an apology statement, confirming the validity of the photos and commenting, "We won't let instances like this happen again."

Meanwhile, Jung Jun Won has not participated in any activities since the end of 'The World of the Married.'

Smoking and drinking alcohol is a big part of Korean culture these days, so MAYBE they should stop promoting Social drinking and smoking before they decide to shun underage people for partaking in it. Maybe stop promoting it as part of the norm when you’re with your friends. SMH. Underage drinking and smoking doesn’t make you an evil person, it makes you a child who maybe made some bad choices based on the people and places you grow up around.

He hurt his own career. He has no one to blame but himself. If you know your country is strict and conservative AF don’t play stupid games. No sympathy from me; hopefully cautionary reminder for other aspiring actors and actresses.
