Yewon’s managing agency, Star Empire Entertainment, released an official statement on the controversy between Lee Tae Im and Yewon.
On March 31, they said, “We would like to send out an official document regarding the conflict that occurred while filming ‘Tutoring Across Generations.’ First of all, we would like to apologize to those who care for Yewon and Lee Tae Im for causing so much trouble.”
“We take on most of the fault for rashly releasing an official statement after depending on only the hearsay from the staff, while failing to receive any accurate facts from Yewon,” they continued. “We apologize for the harm we have caused Yewon and Lee Tae Im by judging this issue based on the atmosphere and failing to professionally take on the issue. We will do our best to treat future sensitive issues with more caution. We will also make sure that Yewon takes this as an opportunity to mature.”
“We hope that you forgive us for sending out such a dated apology and understand our situation with a generous heart. Once again, we send out our deepest apologies to Lee Tae Im and the fans,” Star Empire said.
Earlier, controversy sparked when it was exposed that Lee Tae Im had cursed at Yewon during the filming of “Tutoring Across Generations” on February 24. Though the case was closed after each side apologized, it’s becoming the center of attention again since clips of the scene have been revealed.
