Singer and musical actor Ock Joo-hyun apologized for suing her colleague Ho-young Kim, who sparked the controversy over ‘connection casting’.

Ock Joo-hyun posted on his SNS on the 24th, “Recently, amid controversy over the casting issue of a work, an unfortunate incident occurred where I sued a fellow actor in the musical industry. I feel responsible for this happening. I’m sorry.” wrote

He continued, “I read the appeals of the senior musicians. I also love and cherish musicals, and as a person who has been involved in musicals for 17 years, I realized and reflected on the suspicions surrounding me and that I was not careful in the process of explaining them.” .

He apologized, saying, “I’m sorry to all those who were offended by this, as well as those in the music industry and audiences who love musicals.”

He continued, “I will correct any disturbances that have arisen in relation to the lawsuit. I will convey my sincerity to people.”

However, he strongly denied the allegations that he was involved in the casting of the 10th anniversary performance of the musical ‘Elisabeth’.

He said, “I was not involved in the casting in any way. I hope that the actors who have been recognized for their skills through auditions will not be disparaged. I earnestly ask the production company to reveal the facts clearly and clearly about all suspicions related to casting.” .

Ock Joo-hyun’s side told Hankyung.com, “The accusation against Kim Ho-young is withdrawn and the accusations against malicious commenters continue. There is no change in the policy of continuing the accusation through monitoring in the future.”

At the same time, he demanded a clear explanation of the article referred to as ‘Jade Plate’ from Ho-Young Kim.

Earlier, on the 14th, Kim Ho-young posted a picture of a jade board with the caption, “Asari board is a thing of the past. Now it is a jade board” on Instagram. Regarding this, netizens speculated that Kim Ho-young publicly sniped Ock Joo-hyun, based on the fact that Kim Ho-young posted the article right after the ‘Elisabeth’ lineup was released and put a sticker on the venue.

Netizens paid attention to the fact that while Kim So-hyun, who was expected to lead the 10th anniversary performance, was excluded from the lineup, Ock Joo-hyun and Lee Ji-hye were double-casted as Elizabeth, and Gil Byung-min, who made her musical debut as Emperor Franz Josef. Lee Ji-hye is close with Ock Joo-hyun, and Gil Byeong-min has a relationship with Ock Joo-hyun in JTBC’s ‘Phantom Singer 3’.

In response, Ock Joo-hyun responded by writing, “I am preparing a lawsuit against the contributors of rude speculation and speculation and subsequent articles. Those who made fun of their snout and fingers regardless of the facts. You should be scolded.” Two netizens sued for defamation.

EMK Musical Company, the producer of ‘Elisabeth’, also said, “Through the 2022 EMK Production audition (announced on December 8, 2021), we went through an intense, step-by-step audition with the best staff in Korea, including producer Um Hong-hyun, director Robert Johansson, and music director Kim Moon-jeong. They were cast as actors selected through the final approval of the original VBW original company, including selected new actors and actors from last season.”

However, Park Ka-lin, Choi Jeong-won, and Nam Gyeong-ju, who are called the first generation in the musical world, issued an appeal and said, “We all have a degree to which we have to protect in our own position and in our work.” , and the controversy grew.

Through their appeal, they said, “An actor should focus on his or her original job of acting, but not infringe on the production company’s own rights such as casting. We must do our best to keep the promises we made to the staff and actors.”

Since then, numerous musical actors have shared their appeal on social media and expressed their intention to share their thoughts.
