Veteran actor Lee Soon Jae Supports #MeToo Victims "Offenders keep your word and leave the industry"

In middle of new sexual harassment/rape acussations, veteran actor commented about #metoo movement in a recent interview, he spoke directly to all those actors who admited their guilt

Original Source (SBS via Naver): Lee Soon Jae gives sex offenders a warning…"Keep your promise and leave the acting world"

1. [+11611, -26] The people involved don't even apologize.. Actor Lee Soon Jae-nim who's wonderful in all sides, please stay healthy for a long, long time..
↪ [+301, -3] He really is a person I want to see for a long time
↪ [+192, -1] I have the same thought, I want to see him for a long time

2. [+8879, -31] He's a person you can learn a lot from~ Please stay healthy for a long, long time and stay by our sides

3. [+7878, -30] Listen to the elder
↪ [+158, -3] Yup listen to the elder
↪ [+181, -2] He's a true elder

4. [+7419, -25] As expected, he's cool...

5. [+6517, -19] He's a person who's educated/knowledgeable ㄷㄷ
↪ [+227, -4] This elder graduated from Seoul National University's department of Philosophy
↪ [+177, -2] At this point, he's teaching what he learned

6. [+1252, -11] There are a lot of men who try to cover it up and keep it a secret just because of the reason that they are also a man.. A person who looks back at their life honorably can say it confidently wherever. In some ways, it's an obvious saying but it feels like you can get more strength because of Lee Soon Jae-nim's words.. Thank you (t/n: This commenter is basically saying that men like Lee Soon Jae, who's really respected, is giving other men courage to call out the disgusting men)

7. [+1333, -94] He's like the godfather.. When all the immature, young male actors are staying silent (when they usually share their opinions on their social media and create a fuss but when it's actually a really important situation, they stay quiet). This person's impactful few words are cool. Of course, that's why he's Lee Soon Jae.

8. [+1094, -5] When Cho Jae Hyun came out on 'Life Bar', he said that Lee Soon Jae gladly participated in his play but he's repaying Lee Soon Jae with the biggest betrayal.

9. [+875, -3] Cho Jae Hyun, Oh Dal Su, Jo Min Ki OUT. Lee Yoon Taek OUT.
↪ [+90, -0] Adding Nam Goong Yeon (t/n: he's a drummer that was recently accused)
↪ [+77, -0] Adding Kim Ki Duk (t/n: he's a director, he also worked on a movie with Cho Jae Hyun)

Original Source (Sports Seoul via Naver): Lee Soon Jae, "To the #MeToo victims, it's not your fault…I hope the offenders apologize for eternity"

1. [+3849, -25] Teacher Lee Soon Jae, every word you're saying is completely true!! ^-^ (t/n: teacher is a term of endearment, it's used when the person is very respected and well-knowledgeable/educated, I think it's also used mostly on elders)

2. [+2722, -27] I respect you Teacher Lee Soon Jae

3. [+2614, -25] Thank you ㅜㅜ There are people like this sharing these words (t/n: the commenter is thanking him for speaking up)

4. [+2276, -19] He's really cool...

5. [+1478, -57] Foo~oolish bastard. (t/n: it's his quote from the sitcom High Kick - LINK)
↪ [+268, -1] I can hear him saying it ㅋㅋ

6. [+453, -7] He's not an elder for no reason, if you look at him, he doesn't say a lot of words but he always speaks from the heart and states the key points

Mad respect for him!

so.......have these people suddenly changed their mind about the victims of Trashcan Baby Daddy and Park Bathroom Assaulter? or are we just gonna forget about what Hyunjoong and Yoochun did and how people called their victims liars and attention seekers?

I dont think they are the same people. The ones who call the victims liar and attention seekers are fans of the said idols.

Knetizen in the other hand are pretty brutal and I remember their comment on Hyunjoong and the crack bones when the news first comes out.
premonitioner 9th-Mar-2018 09:39 am (UTC)
I know that was the case for Hyunjoong eventually but Yoochun's accusers either got in trouble with the police or withdrew their claims? Either way, not much public support for them. I saw more backlash for Yoochun for his weird marriage situation than these accusations.
pepsi_twist9 9th-Mar-2018 02:52 pm (UTC)
I feel like there was probably the bias of Yoochun being at so-called "seedy" areas when he was carrying out his assaults.
There's forward movement in recognizing sexual assault but still the stigma of "troubled" people etc.

I think when one of his accusers was acquitted of the charges for false accusation the public opinion swung a bit back in the victims' favors. That's only based on the few translated netizen comments I've seen tho.
sra_interesante 9th-Mar-2018 02:55 am (UTC)
i hope more relevant people keeps talking about this ... too many have stayed quiet for too long , the only idol i imagened speaking up in this kind of situations isnt in this world anymore

someone else needs to speak up!

This comment was a gut punch :(
sra_interesante 9th-Mar-2018 10:48 am (UTC)

Off topic, but your pic is amazing. Where can I get some Black Panther clips like that?!
mjspice 10th-Mar-2018 09:42 am (UTC)
There's a lot of them on youtube. Comicbook.com even has a playlist of them: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLhyAz23c4ofpfddKO3XWaWbM_v87KZYWE

Not to mention he was a victim himself of the groping scandal backstage at SNL. None of the perpetrators suffered any real consequences and everyone forgot about it so quickly. :(

this post made me nervous as fuck.

(also, praying he doesn't get realized. Let us have some nice things!)

I sincerely hope that it becomes a Thing where senior actors & actresses keep an eye on these assholes and ensure they never enter the industry again. Because lbr a few years down the road some of these trash are going to come crawling back onto variety shows with their sob stories of how they've been ~repenting and then start acting again. Ugh.
yxerin 9th-Mar-2018 03:31 pm (UTC)
good point
mjspice 9th-Mar-2018 08:40 pm (UTC)
Damn bruh
modestgoddess79 11th-Mar-2018 12:03 am (UTC)
they need to stay out of the industry and go to jail
