Han Ye Seul Returns to Filming Set of “Myung Wol the Spy,” Apologizes to Each Staff


Han Ye Seul has returned to the filming site of KBS drama “Myung Wol the Spy” on Thursday morning, resuming her role as the lead actress of the show.

The actress showed up an hour before the scheduled filming time and apologized to each cast and staff member, including Eric and Jang Hee Jin. In particular, she greeted Hwang In Hyuk, the lead producer of the show who was rumored to be in a troubling relationship with her, with a bright smile indicating they have settled their differences.

Han Ye Seul repeatedly bowed in apology and explained her position from the recent controversy, as staff members who were known to be at odds with the actress in the past also welcomed her back to the set.

The filming crew also treated her with respect, and changed the filming site without prior notice in an attempt to ditch the local press and create a more peaceful environment for the troubled actress. Thursday’s filming was for the 13th episode of the show.

“Since Han Ye Seul has offered her sincere apologies to the staff and casting crew, we are trying to treat her the way possible. After a storm comes a calm, and we’re hoping this to give a positive effect to our TV ratings too,” an official from KBS said.

On August 17th, right after Han Ye Seul returned from Los Angeles, she released an official statement saying, “The whole controversy was caused by my misunderstanding of producer Hwang In Hyuk’s plans. We cleared up all the misunderstandings and will focus on filming from now on.” The producer also responded, “Let’s spend more time communicating on site and straighten out the misunderstandings.”

Han Ye Seul boycotted the filming for “Myung Wol the Spy” on August 14th and 15th, and abruptly flew to Los Angeles on Tuesday. However, in less than 48 hours, she returned to Korea, stating she “just wanted the people in Korea to understand the poor working conditions for dramas.”
