Actress Seo Ye Ji is in the news once again, this time for an alleged former employee.
After her skinship controversy became public only a few days ago, Seo Ye Ji has been the subject of intense scrutiny. She’s been the subject of several other controversies since then, including bullying allegations, dating scandals, and more. In light of all of this, another claim has been brought to the attention of the public after an alleged former employee revealed a tell-all about their time working with the star.
A netizen claiming to be a former employee detailed the alleged harassment they endured at the hands of the It’s Okay To Not Be Okay actress in a lengthy exposé. The former employee began by describing how terrified the team felt whenever they had to deal with Seo Ye Ji.
At our business, we would all fight to avoid having to work with Seo Ye Ji. I would cry and tell my company that I didn’t want to work with her, but they always told me to suck it up and do it to help further my career. As a result, I ended up working with her for a few years.Netizen and alleged former staffer
This is when they began to talk about the verbal harassment they received from the actress while working with her. The alleged former staffer also revealed Seo Ye Ji’s terrifying methods for instilling terror in her employees.
While working, she would always curse at us. I don’t think she realized how much secondhand smoke we were inhaling, but she still smoked in the car and demanded that we buy her more cigarettes. She would scream at us while blowing smoke in our faces if we made even the tiniest mistakes.Netizen and alleged former staffer
The original poster of this tell-all admitted that despite their desire to document all of their encounters, they were unable to do so due to the actress’s insistence on daily phone checks.
I was unable to record anything because she would search our phones on a regular basis.Netizen and alleged former staffer
They continued by expressing their frustration towards the actress. They shared that everything revolved around the actress and how she was feeling that day. They revealed that if Seo Ye Ji was in a bad mood, it was expected that everyone match her mood.
Whenever she said she was in a bad mood, she never ate anything and so we were unable to eat. She also told us that actors are people who work solely with their emotions so we were expected to give in to everything she wanted.
Are you the only human because you work with your emotions, Seo Ye Ji-sshi? What are we then, dogs and pigs? You curse at us and yell at us, do we not have emotions?Netizen and alleged former staffer
The alleged former staffer also reported that they were repeatedly threatened by the actress whenever a negative rumor spread.
If there were bad rumors going around about her, she would come up to us and say, ‘I know it’s you guys. This industry is small, be careful with what you say or I will make it hard for you guys to get jobs.’ Do you recall threatening us in that way?Netizen and alleged former staffer
I didn’t say anything about you because I was afraid of your threats, and I wanted to keep working in this industry. While working for you, I experienced emotional illness and verbal abuse, and I regret not saying anything and letting the days pass.
Following the release of this shocking tell-all, netizens started to express their outrage at the accusations leveled against the actress.
Due to her association with Kim Jung Hyun and the suspected coercion behind his aggressive actions, Seo Ye Ji has been subjected to a barrage of criticism in recent days. While the actress’s agency, Gold Medalist, came forward to deny that Seo Ye Ji was to blame for the uproar, no further comments on her other accusations have been made.
