[HanCinema's News] "The Penthouse 2" to Air Unedited This Week


On March 3rd Choi Ye-bin's agency confirmed that "The Penthouse 2" would not be editing out scenes featuring the actress in this week's broadcasts of the drama. J Wide Company also stated that they were continuing to investigate the controversy surrounding Choi Ye-bin's alleged acts of bullying during her time as a student. The controversy stems from a March 1st online posting from a person claiming to be her former classmate.


In the posting the accuser claims that Choi Ye-bin viciously harassed her best friend back in middle school and asked for an apology. The accuser claimed that though her face was different, Choi Ye-bin's actual bullying face is virtually identical to the one used in "Penthouse 2" by her character. The accuser asked for an apology, but did not make any demands regarding Choi Ye-bin being forced out of the drama.

The news comes as many public figures are facing backlash for alleged abusive behavior during their years as a student. Ironically, "The Penthouse" helped foment this trend due to its blunt and at times excessive depiction of the issue, with Choi Ye-bin being one of the chief examples of a character engaging in such behavior. "The Penthouse 2" airs on Friday and Saturday night on SBS.
