South Korean actress Seo Ye-Ji ‘s TV return is premiering on May 25. A year after stepping out of the limelight following the controversy from her relationship with ex Kim Jung-Hyun, tvN releases her stunning poster for the upcoming K-drama Eve.
Eve’s poster presents all kinds of mysterious vibes with Seo Ye-ji clad in a black feathered dress clenching a single red rose between her fingers. The actress plays the role of Lee Rae-el, the beautiful and brilliant daughter born into a chaebol family. However, her life is anything but happy given her family’s unfortunate history. Returning to Korea as a “dangerous flower”, she executes her carefully crafted plan to extract revenge from those she believes wronged her family. Lee Sang Yeob, Park Byung Eun and Yoo Sun also star.
Eve marks the 32-year-old actress’ return to TV after a year long hiatus. Previously, text messages released to the public between her ex Kim Jung-Hyun resulted in allegations of manipulating and gaslighting him into acting unprofessionally whilst filming Time. It’s even rumoured that the actor’s treatment of co-star Seohyun was so rude it made her cry.
Thanks to the popularity of the series It’s Okay to Not Be Okay , Seo Ye-Ji’s career enjoyed a huge boost. However, she was forced to cancel appearances and awards ceremonies following the public outrage from the revelations.
She eats up the screen 🔥 phenomenal🥰🥰
you are so right! she eats the screen, rare combination of acting talent, skill and presence.
Glad to see her back onscreen after those ridiculous allegations.
Good for her. Glad to see her back in a drama. Hope the drama is successful. She always steal the show even when she was the second lead or villains in her past dramas. Glad that she got a second chance at being lead again. I’m hoping the haters will just leave her alone.
She looks so thin and gaunt in here. Those allegations must’ve done a number on her. Hoping things go well with her comeback role and prove haters wrong.
Allegations? She apologized and those allegations are all true…
Just because she apologized doesn’t mean they are true. In Korea, celebrities apologize for all sorts of things whether they are true or not, whether they are responsible for them or not. It’s standard operating procedure, to smooth the way after a ‘scandal’. I have watched many a talk show/reality show where k-idols say that the public often assign them scandal’s regardless of if they are guilty or not, or are responsible for it or not, and they have been taught, and have learned that it is just easier to accept responsibility, apologize and reflect, than refute those allegations. It is only in more recent years that we have seen some celebrities actually try to fight their accusers publicly, or at least explain their part of the situation. And this is met with varying degrees of success. Sometimes it works, and other times the celebrity is left with egg on their faces. The ideal case is when you can deflect the public’s rage on to another person, minimize your liability; and hope that the public forgives/forgets your actions with time. Which is what happened to her, she became the scapegoat for another person’s actions. Regardless of what went down, I’m glad to see that all parties concerned are making comebacks in their careers.
