Seo Ye Ji's attendance at 'Baeksang Arts Awards Show' in discussion after she wins popularity award


Seo Ye Ji's attendance at the upcoming 'Baeksang Arts Awards Show' is under discussion after the actress won the popularity award.

Despite the controversies surrounding the star, Seo Ye Ji managed to beat out names like Shin Hye Sun and Kim So Hyun to win the 'TikTok Popularity Star' award at the '57th Baeksang Arts Awards'. Netizens had mixed reactions to the vote results, and now, Seo Ye Ji has been officially named the winner of the 'Popular Female Actor' award alongside Kim Seon Ho, who won the male actor category.

The actress previously withdrew from the drama 'Island' and was absent from the press conference for her movie 'Recalled' following her dating controversy involving actor Kim Jung Hyun and alleged bullying controversy, so many netizens are wondering if she'll be present at the awards ceremony.

Her label Gold Medalist stated she was currently in discussion. Stay tuned for updates.

I think she should attend! I hate this 'cancel' culture.

I am not 100% sure what the fuss is all about her but people need to forgive and forget and move on.

She hasn't committed any crime, has she? She is not a perfect human-being!

And I also hope that celebrities and agencies and networks should work together to protect each other.

It is very small world that they are living in and they are constantly scrutinized by society.

People seem to have too much SNS power and sometimes they are abusing them against celebrities.

Fans should also be equally responsible for their action!

Attend the award show because it is NOT only Korean fans she's got! She has millions of international fans, who want to see her!

To those who have the mindset of "her personal life shouldn't have been revealed", would you have the same thought process if the genders were reversed? If you saw super toxic text messages from a male to a female, would you still support him "as an actor?" or would you call him out for being abusive?

For all we know, these texts were only the tip of the iceberg. We don't know what happened behind closed doors. It could have been 10x worse when they were alone? We don't know. But something else was for sure happening for Jung-hyun to get to the point of being suicidal.

Let me ask, if it was Seo Yeji who was suffering that badly to the point of being suicidal, would you still support the male actor who's texts were revealed just because he's a good actor? Are men the only ones who can been labelled as abusive?
