Seo Ye Ji fans are not at all happy to see their favourite star losing projects following the school bullying allegations and accusations against her of interfering in her ex-boyfriend Kim Jung Hyun's work when they were in a relationship. The actress's decision to withdraw from OCN drama Island has added salt to the injury as the fans claim that she is being meted out unfair treatment.
Walked Out of Island
The actress' label GoldMedalist has formally announced the news of the actress walking out of the project. "A mutual final decision has been made for Seo Ye Ji not to star in 'Island'," it confirmed the development in a statement.
The actress has been hitting the headlines for the wrong reasons. Firstly, there were school bullying and violence allegations against her. If it was not enough, the It's Okay to Not Be Okay actress landed in more trouble after Dispatch came out with a report stating that her former boyfriend Kim Jung Hyun refused to do skinship scenes with Seohyun in The Times in 2018 as per Seo Ye Ji's orders.
The chat conversation between the former couple was leaked and Kim Jung Hyun's apology gave credence to the allegations of Seo Ye Ji interfering in his work.
Going by the report on Dispatch, Kim Jung Hyun had alleged caused lots of pain to his co-star Seohyun while forcing the writers to rewrite the script on the orders of the then-girlfriend. A total of 13 skinship scenes were removed from the drama following which his character fell out of the story, the report added.
Even as she was trying to overcome these controversies, a former staff made allegations of verbal abuse and harassment.
These controversies are affecting her personally and professionally.

Meanwhile, the fans are extending their support and showering love on Twitter. Check out their tweets below:
