‘It's Okay to Not Be Okay’ fame Seo Ye Ji will return to television in 2022 with a new drama. She was seen at a script-reading along with fellow cast members of her upcoming drama ‘Eve’, which will also star Park Byung Eun, Yoo Sun, and Lee Sang Yeob.

‘Eve’, formally known as ‘Eve’s Scandal’, is a romantic drama that centers around a tragic story. It is about Lee Ra El (Seo Ye Ji), a woman who witnessed her father's death as a youngster. Later in life, she prepares to avenge his death while also becoming a powerful woman. On the other hand, Kang Yoon Kyeom (Park Byung Eun) is the CEO of a huge firm and seems to lead a normal life until he falls in love with Lee Ra El. Along with the main leads, Yoo Sun and Lee Sang Yeob also have crucial roles. The show is set to air in the second part of this year and is Seo Ye Ji’s first small-screen series after her huge scandal.

Seo Ye Ji’s ex-boyfriend scandal

Seo Ye Ji was soaring high after ‘It’s okay to not be okay’. However, everything started to backflip when Dispatch revealed that Seo Ye Ji’s ex-boyfriend Kim Jung Hyun was being controlled by her. Well known for ‘Waikiki’ and ‘Crash landing on you’, Kim Jung Hyun was filming a series in 2018 called ‘Time’ with Girls’ Generation Seohyun. When the initial screenplay and the edited versions were compared, it was seen that many intimate and romantic scenes between the leads were removed. Dispatch showed that Seo Ye Ji manipulated Kim Jung Hyun to not get close to the female lead.

In a report where Seo Ye Ji and Kim Jung Hyun’s text messages were attached, viewers were able to see how Seo Ye Ji directed Kim Jung Hyun to eliminate all "skinship" sequences and behave rudely to the female crew members in ‘Time’. Even during the press conference, Kim Jung Hyun was seen giving Seohyun odd looks, confirming Seo Ye Ji’s manipulations.

Once the controversy blew up, Seo Ye Ji apologized to her fans. However, many anonymous netizens who were supposedly Seo Ye Ji’s classmates in school started to open up about how she bullied them. With pressure mounting, Seo Ye Ji took a long break from social media.

Why does Seo Ye Ji star in ‘Eve’?

Despite the scandal, it is widely acknowledged that she is a great actor. The production team expects her to be able to relate to the wrath of the character. They even said, “We thought solid acting skills and immersion are important since ‘Eve’ contains the process of Lee Ra El carefully preparing for revenge. Seo Ye Ji is an actress with a strong image and the energy to immerse herself to pull off Lee Ra El. From the first meeting, she analyzed the script more thoroughly than anyone else. A high understanding of the character and great affection for the project are the main reasons she was cast.” Surely Seo Ye Ji’s anger towards the real-life scandal will fuel her performance in 'Eve' as she exacts her vengeance.
