Former After School member So Young talks about being sexually harassed #metoo

Former After School member, Yoo So Young, who is now promoting as an actress, said that during an acting class her teacher, who is also a famous actor, told her to roll up her shirt so her bra is showing and stand face to face with a man. She says this actor is still currently promoting freely. She couldn't understand why he wanted her to do this, and in the end couldn't do it. She ended up leaving the class crying and then talked with her agency about it, and ultimately stopped attending that class.

This is not the first time that So Young has spoken up about being sexual harassed: Last year in November she talked about being sexually harassed by a company CEO on the show "Heard It Through The Grapevine".

the jessica incident still horrifies me, because even a big company like SM can't do anything about it says how screwed up the hierarchy thing is. and just like an iceberg, this mentality is probably across the various levels of hierarchy that does not just concern the upper tiers?

Ik): esp your point about smaller companies. Things like this must happen daily.

And Tiffany was groped by Tak Jae Hoon (of Country Kko Kko and variety show fame). The guy is such a sleeze. Apparently he also cheated on his wife and gave a lot of their money to the women he cheated on her with. I'm mad he's making a comeback after his gambling scandal and divorce.

We had a post here in 2009, but I'd suggest nnot reading the comments. They're really depressing and typical 2009 comments: https://omonatheydidnt.livejournal.com/47073.html

vid here:

This was on KBS, and apparently the guy who groped Jessica was a high up KBS official, so it's entrenched.

I'm glad she feels safe enough to talk about the incident (even without naming names), but I'm pissed she went though that at all. I feel like there are so many acting and art teachers who take advantage of the fact that boundaries can get a little blurry in their work and use it as an excuse to take advantage of their (usually female) students who are probably young and so are less likely to stand up for themselves b/c of the power dynamic and just lack of experience due to youth.

Honestly hearing about these stories and when you think about the shit that must have happened behind the scenes, I feel so enraged. I just can't even write down how mad I feel and how horrified I feel for all these poor women and men who get preyed on.

I hope his name gets leaked and his career gets ruined.
