Lee Seo-won Accused of Sexual Harassment and Threats with a Weapon

2018/05/16 | Permalink | Source

Actor Lee Seo-won is under police investigation for sexually harassing a fellow actress and threatening her with a weapon.

Apparently, he tried to kiss her and touch her while drinking together. The actress then called her boyfriend for help and Lee Seo-won allegedly threatened her with a weapon.

Blossom Entertainment issued a public apology and has neither confirmed nor denied accusations.

"Lee Seo-won is looking back on his mistake and is deeply sorry. He will cooperate with police investigations".

Lee Seo-won debuted in 2015 through the JTBC drama "Awl" and joined Blossom Entertainment with Cha Tae-hyun, Park Bo-gum, and Song Joong-ki. He was seen as a rising star at the time.

He appeared in the KBS 2TV drama "Uncontrollably Fond" as Suzy's brother Noh Jik and even stood as MC for the KBS TV show "Music Bank". He made a special appearance in the MBC drama "Hospital Ship" with Ha Ji-won and Kang Min-hyuk and he was due to appear in the new tvN drama "About Time".

Lee Seo-won is at risk of falling from his quickly earned stardom. In addition, he is charged with drunkenly yelling and cussing at the police who arrived on site.

Netizens have taken note of his mourning posts of the Sewol Ferry incident and frequent pictures of himself when he was young.
