Actresses Lee Tae-im and Clara are coming back. The two of them were swept up in a wide issue of profanity and conflict with the management. The once sexy icons are now making an attempt to make a comeback.
Lee Tae-im was in the hot seat for swearing at a co-star of a TV show she was in. The footage of her profanity was released and parodies of it spread out. In the end, Lee Tae-im took 7 months off in self-reflection before she came back with the drama "You Will Love Me".
Lee Tae-im chose to appear in the tvN show "Saturday Night Live Korea" and publicly apologize to the public about her misbehavior. At the end of the show, she said, "It's a 100% my fault. I am in the wrong. I would like to say to Kim Yewon that I'm sorry". The way she dealt with the situation even self-dissing herself, succeeded in turning back the hearts of those who turned away from her.
Clara had a long period of conflict with her previous management, Polaris. She claimed she was sexually harassed by the chairman Lee Gyu-tae sued the management for nonexistence of her contract. Polaris claimed she acted on her own will without consulting the company and countersued her. The text messages between her and Lee Gyu-tae were revealed in the process.
However, Clara was found not guilty last July. It turned out that Lee Gyu-tae had threatened to 'slit her throat' in the process of investigations and this managed to buy some sympathy for Clara as it proved that managements still claimed authority over their artists. However, Clara is still being mocked as 'liar Clara'.
After tying the knot with her former management, she's coming back with a Chinese drama. According to her current management, she's starring in "Happy Chocolate" as Wook-yeong and she's still considering coming back with a Korean project.
The two actresses were once the icons for sexiness and fitness and they appeared everywhere from entertainment shows to movies and drama. However, they suffered different issues and the public turned away from them. Several stars have tried to come back after such unfortunate events in the past and the results were half and half. How they present themselves after the break is the critical factor on whether they succeed or not. There is no real answer but they need to be sincere about the issue instead of avoiding it. As they are both actresses, they are going to need to put in a lot more effort in that part.
A source said, "There is pressure in standing in front of the public that once turned their backs on you. Lee Tae-im didn't hide and took it to the face so she succeeded partly in getting back interest. Clara was found not guilty but not everyone thinks she's innocent so she needs to approach this matter with sincerity".
