We reported a few days ago how actor Ji Soo’s exit from the popular show ‘Rive Where The Moon Rises’ had caused a huge financial loss. It was majorly because the show had been 95% filmed and was ready till the 18th episode. Mr. Queen’s Na In Woo was then roped in to play the lead alongside Kim So Hyun and they practically had to reshoot almost all the episodes. 

Due to the huge loss, the show’s production company, Victory Contents, filed a suit against Ji Soo’s agency, KeyEast for the damages suffered due to the actor. On April 2, KeyEast company released a statement stating, “We are deeply sympathetic to the difficult situation facing the production company and several crew members due to the sudden change of actors, and we have made it clear that we are willing to take responsibility only for the reasonable costs required for the additional filming to replace actor Jisoo.”

 

They also stated that the estimated cost of production given to them by the company on March 29 “is not sufficient to provide a concrete basis for a final agreement, so it is highly likely that legal and accounting issues such as the appointment of management officers as a listed company will arise.” They stated that they are willing to provide additional production cost to the company as the re-filming will go on till mid-April, if the two companies reach an amicable agreement. 

 

They also added that they’ve been trying to reach KBS and other production companies, so it’s untrue that the agreement was broken off due to their unco-operativeness, as Victory Content claims it to be. KeyEast then in the end also said that they hope the drama doesn’t undergo any more obstacles and that they reach a middle ground soon.

They should have just kept ji soo! Simple. No one cares what happened in his younger personal life. We want him to continue acting! If people have a problem with ji soo in movies....don't watch! Simple. There are more people who want to see him act!

Where you only considering the financial damages, what about the mental depression that is affecting jisoo and his family. Did you ever thought of councelling both jisoo & the aggrieved party? Help is what these two needs most & urgent.

I was watching 2 dramas of this guy simultaneously also loved his acting but stopped watching his dramas after he accepted bullying allegations.

What does that got anything to do with his dramas? You clearly love his acting but just because of his personal business when he was younger you chose to stop showing support? What if something happens to him will that be enough reason for you to rewatch his dramas again? By doing this you are not bullying him but instead you're worse. You are like a fellow classmate who is watching a person get bullied and yet you do nothing. And if you say 'that's because it's not my business' then his personal life is not your business too. Gosh! I really hate writers and reporters whose got nothing better to do than just to ruin lives of famous people.

Jisoo should have apologized sooner to the people he bullied. The best thing he could do for now is to personally apologize to them and show sincerity. But that doesn't mean we should totally cancel him out because of what he did in the past. He has so much potential and we should give him a chance. But if he's still bullying people then that's it. This is applicable to all of us. Just because we did something bad in the past, that doesn't mean we have to live with it all our life. Every person can change for the better but that depends on him/her. We shouldn't let the past ruin our life, career, happiness, and ourselves. I hope everything will be okay soon!

I think it's not right to changed Ji Soo,what happened before won't changed anything,they are just kids and it seems that bullying in Korea is very common,teachers should watch the kids too because they are responsible too..Ji Soo just say sorry and admit you are wrong before,I think it's enough,let bygones be bygones.That's my heartfelt opinion.Godbless

Really preferred the other actor. He was more believable and the part seemed easy for him to do.

Adoro o trabalho do Jisoo. Ninguém pode negar que ele é um ator incrível. Espero que a justiça vá fundo nessa história. Não quero que ele seja punido por algo que ele não fez. Quero que ele seja punido apenas pelo que ele fez, bem mais nem menos.

Koreans were just insecure bullies. It runs in their DNAS.. They've caused suicide to idols and celebrities and they're not stopping.. Ji Soo is too young back then to realize what he ia doing is wrong. Koreans are bullies. Period. And I love Ji Soo.

Even though he has already apologized, it does not justify that he bullied people. People have had their whole lives ruined due to cases like these. We don't even know what the victims went through. Saying, "Every one makes mistakes" does not justify why his actions in this case. People can still support him if they believe he is right, but demanding to have him back in the drama does not make sense. It is done for him to reflect on his doing. Also, no one is going to talk about the double standard?? When Park Hyesoo's case wasn't even confirmed, people were at her throat even though she was the Victim. But, y'all are supporting Jisoo??
