Actor Lee Ji Hoon's label apologizes to 'Sponsor' staff for friend's behavior


Actor Lee Ji Hoon's label apologized to the staff members of the upcoming drama 'Sponsor' for his friend's behavior on set.

As previously reported, a staff member of 'Sponsor' revealed Lee Ji Hoon's friend had allegedly threatened staff and cursed at them on set. Ssom Entertainment stated, "Firstly, we sincerely apologize for this unpleasant news. It's true there was conflict between our actor's friend and staff member. Actor Lee Ji Hoon attempted to apologize the day it occurred, and we think it's unfortunate it didn't go as smoothly."

The label continued, "The actor is deeply reflecting on having his friend visit the set and cause a disturbance, and he's continuously trying to get in contact with the staff member through the production because the staff member in question cannot be reached at the moment. However, on the claim he 'took his pants off and caused a disturbance,' it seems the poster wrote it this way about him changing clothes in a hurry due to the busy schedule."

Ssom Entertainment concluded, "However, we apologize to staff members on set who felt uncomfortable due to this. We'll be more careful in the future, but we hope there are no misunderstandings. The actor is aware of the seriousness of the incident and is deeply reflecting. We hope he can get in touch with the staff member and resolve the issue peacefully."

The production of 'Sponsor' also shared the following statement:

"Hello. This is the production team of the drama 'Sponsor'.

Firstly, we apologize for the unpleasant news.
Here is the production crew's statement about the incident that happened on set.

Actor Lee Ji Hoon and his friend had a conflict with a staff member on set, but it was due to a misunderstanding.

Actor Lee Ji Hoon apologized for not behaving more wisely and maturely and allowing a conflict to arise between his friend and the staff member. He is wondering about not being able to get in contact with the staff member at the moment.

We earnestly hope there won't be any additional damage to others because of distorted, false information.

In the future, we'll manage the set more carefully to avoid any further trouble in the production environment.

We send our apologies for troubling many people."

The friend visited Jihoon bec it's the actor's birthday. Spill the reason of the fight first. Left out too many holes in the story.

the reality is that the fight (or misunderstanding) was had by a friend of the actor with someone from the staff but the one who told the story wants to cancel the actor because he believes that his friend is from the mafia and that the actor even though he behaved Well trying to separate them did not have a pure look. it's all pretty ridiculous.

The solution is simple that the production company does not allow the actors to bring friends to work and that the actor's agency bans in the future the staff member from working on the same series / movies as their actor ...
