Musical actor Nam Kyung-joo revealed the reason for issuing a statement about the lawsuits against Ock Joo-hyun and Kim Ho-young.
On the 23rd, Nam Kyung-ju opened up about the legal dispute between Ock Joo-hyun and Kim Ho-young in a call with the YouTube channel ‘Video Mug’. He said, “I knew from the article that Hoyoung made such an expression. I don’t know whether he was aiming for it or not. I wondered why he overreacted so much, and if we talked on the phone and said, ‘What happened?’ Stop it,” he said sadly.
Next, Nam Kyung-joo asked about the reason for delivering a lengthy position with director Park Ka-lin and actor Choi Jeong-won, saying, “It is unfortunate that such things are being done at a time when musicals should be active. Actors were involved in the casting, and such cases actually existed. In the future, let’s take this as an opportunity to look back at each other.” He explained, “Isn’t it to create a good performance environment by not infringing on our own rights and doing each other’s work faithfully? The biggest reason we started talking.”
After the casting lineup for the musical ‘Elisabeth’ was previously revealed, people questioned whether Lee Ji-hye, not Kim So-hyun, was put into the cast. Lee Ji-hye between Ock Joo-hyun and her close friend, there is a lot of speculation that it might be her network casting. At the same time, Kim Ho-young posted a picture of her jade board and emoticons for her performance on his Instagram, and wrote, “Asari board is an old saying, now it’s a jade board.” Some agreed that it was a sniper article aimed at Ock Joo-hyun. Ock Joo-hyeon expressed her displeasure, saying, “I’m the one who made fun of her snout and fingers regardless of the facts,” and she later sued Kim Ho-young for defamation of her. Production company EMK claimed that she helped Ock Joo-hyun and that there was no casting for her network.
However, the senior musicians in the musical industry, Nam Kyung-joo, Choi Jeong-won, and Park Ka-lin, opened their mouths and expressed their bitter feelings about the situation. They said, “Each of us has a level of integrity that we must follow in our position and work.” “An actor should love and respect his fellow actors and strive to create a good atmosphere. Actors represent the audience’s praise for their work. As they are the recipients, we must respect the staff behind the scenes and do not infringe on the rights of the production company such as casting.”
He also said, “For the convenience of some actors, we need to set the center where the work does not flow. We should treat all actors equally and strive for the safety of actors standing alone on the stage when the performance starts.” We must make it fair, and we must strive at the forefront to create an environment where everyone who participates can work with pride. I think that this situation is caused because this degree is broken. If there are unfairness and disadvantage, We will face it directly and work together to make it right.” Following the three, Jeon Soo-kyung, Lee Sang-hyun, director Min Hwa-ran, Kim So-hyun, Cha Ji-yeon, Shin Young-sook, Jeong Seon-ah, Jeong Seong-hwa, Choi Jae-rim, and Jo Kwon expressed their support.
