Summary of why actor Kim Jung Hyun is in the news right now (+ Seo Ye Ji)

- It all started with Sports Chosun's dating reveal of actor Kim Jung Hyun (Crash Landing on You, Mr. Queen) and actress Seo Ji Hye, who was his co-star and love interest in Crash Landing on You. This was quickly denied by both their agencies, saying that they are just friends. (full soompi article)

- On the same day it was then reported that Kim Jung Hyun would not renew with his current agency O& Entertainment after their contract ends next month, and Seo Ji Hye’s agency Culture Depot revealed that they were discussing an exclusive contract with him.

- Dispatch came into the mix and published a report with details and photos of the two actors alleged 1 year relationship. Culture Depot commented that the two met up at home because of COVID-19 to discuss him transferring agencies. (full soompi article) Which majorly pissed off his current agency. They stated that during his time with the company he had a 11 month hiatus, so his contract was extended for these 11 months which means that his contract won't expire until next year. (And then they probably leaked this next part of the story)

- And now the actual scandal comes in. Remember his drama "Time" with Seohyun back in 2018 where he was criticized for his off-screen "method acting" (he was standoffish the whole time) and eventually even ended up leaving the drama? Here's what actually happened.

I.O.I is gearing up for a special reunion!

On April 13, it was reported that the group is gearing up for a live broadcast together on May 4 in celebration of their fifth anniversary.

The members reportedly gathered recently to discuss the upcoming event. According to industry representatives, nine of the members will be available to attend as Kyulkyung is currently in China and Kang Mina is filming for her upcoming drama. However, they are working on potentially participating in other ways such as via video calls.

Consisting of Somi, Kim Sejeong, Weki Meki’s Choi Yoojung and Kim Doyeon, Chungha, Kim So Hye, Kyulkyung, DIA’s Jung Chaeyeon, Kang Mina, Lim Nayoung, and WJSN’s Yeonjung, I.O.I debuted as a project group in 2016 as a result of the survival program “Produce 101.” They debuted on May 4, 2016 and disbanded in January 2017.

Back in 2016, the group made a promise to reunite in five years. Although their plans for a comeback in 2019 eventually fell through, the members will still fulfill their promise with fans through the upcoming broadcast. I.O.I’s live broadcast will air on May 4 via the mobile app KT Seezn.
