Although South Korean actress Seo Ye Ji is resuming her activities after being criticized for her controversy involving actor and boyfriend Kim Jung Hyun, the actress is in the headlines again for her and her family’s spat with their neighbors.
Earlier this week, a netizen claiming to be a neighbor of Seo Ye Ji’s family publicly aired their grievance and provided details on how their quality of life was disrupted. The netizen criticized Seo Ye Ji’s parents for taking over the building’s public space and installing a dog fence in the stairwells. Adding to the conflict, the netizen claimed that Seo Ye Ji often visited her parents, but the actress would park her car however she liked, including in front of other residents’ cars.
In order to protect their rights, the residents repeatedly voiced their dissent with the Seo family, but the netizen accused Seo Ye Ji’s father of intimidation by physically pushing people away.
The neighbors also tried confronting Seo Ye Ji. When they recognized Seo Ye Ji as an actress, Seo Ye Ji denied it and later brought a lawyer from her agency to resolve the neighbor’s disputes.
The netizen claimed that Seo Ye Ji was initially co-operative and would listen to the neighbor’s concerns from the past four years. However, the neighbors soon doubted Seo Ye Ji’s sincerity when the actress turned around and asked them, “You’ won’t write about this online, right?”
Seo Ye Ji’s Response
Shortly after the expose came to light, Seo Ye Ji’s agency responded that the conflict was a misunderstanding, “Seo Ye Ji’s family immediately apologized after they received the neighbor’s complaints. As for whether the apology was sincere, this is dependent on the other party’s feeling and we don’t know how to respond. The Seo family moved away shortly after their incident. The conflict was satisfactorily resolved.”
The neighborhood spat has once again put Seo Ye Ji in a negative light just as the actress is preparing for her upcoming drama Eve. To limit the impact to her career, Seo Ji Yi finally broke her silence to apologize for her past controversy and promised to showcase her maturity going forward. The apology did not have the intended effect and the actress was criticized for being insincere.
