[HanCinema's News] Legal Action Threatened Regarding Song Yoo-jung Adjacent Rumors


On January 26th Sublime Artist Agency, which represented the now departed actress Song Yoo-jung, threatened legal action against malicious rumors regarding Song Yoo-jung's death. Sublime Artist Agency announced Song Yoo-jung's death on January 25th, despite her having actually died on January 23rd, shortly following the completion of her funerary arrangement. As no cause was given for Song Yoo-jung's death, rumors regarding the cause and the delay were inevitable.


In their official statement on January 26th, Sublime Aritst Agency suggested that they had been lenient due to those circumstances. However, repeated attacks against the company's dignity were now leading them to take on a more aggressive response. The exact nature of this offensive slander was kept deliberately vague. However, Sublime Artist Agency was most likely referring to rumors that Song Yoo-jung had committed suicide and that Sublime Artist Agency was somehow responsible.

Comparisons of Song Yoo-jung to the suicides of Sulli and Goo Ha-ra in 2019 have been common in English language media, despite there being no evidence that Song Yoo-jung committed suicide. Nor does her career bear much similarity to those starlets, as Song Yoo-jung was never in the K-pop idol farm system. Song Yoo-jung was twenty-six years old at the time of her passing.
