Actor Ji Soo's company has reportedly refused to pay their owed damage compensation fees

AKP STAFF

According to Victory Contents, the production company for the KBS 2TV drama 'River Where the Moon Rises', Actor Ji Soo's company KeyEast Co. has refused to pay their owed damage compensation fees.

In response to his personal scandals, Ji Soo withdrew from his drama in the middle of its  production. The actors and staff members of the drama were forced to quickly find a replacement for the lead role, delay their filming schedule, and scrap one month's worth of filming, which caused significant financial and physical damages. Thus, Victory Contents filed for a compensation amount of $2.6 million from Ji Soo's agency, KeyEast. However, according to Victory Contents, KeyEast has not been making any effort to take any responsibility.

Victory Contents stated, "Our first scheduled meeting for legal negotiations was on May 20, 2021. However, KeyEast only sent one legal representative to our building, with no one from their agency attending our meeting. In contrast to their previously released statement saying they will assertively act towards reaching an agreement with us, they are showing a different attitude. KeyEast is claiming that Ji Soo's departure from the drama was a one-sided decision from our production company and that therefore, they are not responsible for a breach of contract."


Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that Ji Soo will enlist in the military service later this year, in October.

His case is much more serious than we know...The severe abuse on his classmates is one thing but there is also the sexual assuls and harassment allegations which are the ones that made him act so quickly so there must be some truth and maybe the victim does not want to go to court since it only makes thme relive their trauma. The rumored disgusting things he did honestly he was a great actor on and off camera had everyone fooled. I thought he had already enlisted but turns out he is sitting at home most likely ALL netizens thinks so too considering he stop getting as much hate when his agency said he is enlisting guess to tone it down they released such news. Oh well trash actor and trash agency

hope he never returns to the screen he earned enough money

I agree that the film company did a knee jerk reaction and didn't even wait to see if the rumor were true and to what extent. While going on about their damages they gave no consideration to the damage to his career and did so without allowing him due process to defend himself. It is unfathomable that someone can be fired over unproven rumor. At the rate this cr*p about bullying by rumor will continue to be a easily used weapon by haters and even competitors. Soon actors are going to have to put in clauses like "I cannot be fired for scandals that occurred because I stole someone else's baby bottle when I was two." OK in reality the clause should be they can't be fired based on unfounded rumors and rumors not proven by some type of records. But the craziness has kind of gotten well crazy.
