KBS speaks about Myung-wol the Spy’s future at press conference

KBS held an emergency press conference on the 16th at their broadcast station, to address the issue of Han Ye-seul’s departure from Monday-Tuesday drama Myung-wol the Spy.

  • Presiding was KBS’s drama department chief, Go Young-tak, as well as other executives EP Lee Kang-hyun and CP Jung Sung-hyo.
  • Their official stance was that Han acted “irresponsibly” and independently, in such a way that they can’t tolerate the reason for her actions. Go stated that the station “cannot accept that she refused to shoot based on discord with producers.”
  • Go called Han’s reasons for leaving the drama — the killer schedule and the late, piecemeal script deliveries — “an excuse” because “Myung-wol the Spy‘s schedule is not more arduous than other dramas.”
  • He denied that the drama was behind schedule or putting out script pages late. The scripts were released in bound form, not loose pages (loose pages is what happens when they’re so behind that the writer churns out pages rather than full scripts at a time). (Note: There were previous rumors that the drama was already in loose-script mode.)
  • CP Jung confirmed that Han made the request early on for a five-day workweek and stated that they made concessions to reduce her schedule and let her out of shoots to film CFs, but also stated that the reality of live-shooting dramas requires the lead actress to shoot long hours.
  • CP Jung added that Han didn’t want to act with certain actors, and scripts were revised when she didn’t want to do physical gags. “We did everything she asked.”
  • CP Lee said that he spoke with Han on the phone on the 13th, who said that the producers were ostracizing her on set. Lee told her that it didn’t make sense for producers to alienate their leading actress, and that they were probably just upset that she was late.
  • Lee added that Han had a positive reaction prior to the broadcast. “However, after seeing Episodes 1 and 2, she seemed dissatisfied with the result, which didn’t live up to her expectations. She also had complaints about her character, such as the physical gags and the personality that was limited to cheerfulness.”
  • KBS stated their intention to see the drama through the end.
  • A new actress will be brought in to replace Han if necessary.
  • Go added, “Actually, KBS was waiting for Han Ye-seul to return through it all. If she returned by Sunday night, the Monday broadcast would have been possible, and if she returned Monday the Tuesday broadcast would have been possible. Even now, although we don’t expect that she’ll return to Korea, if she were able to film Episode 13 and the situation could continue as planned, we would consult with the production company. If that’s the best [Han could offer], we would choose it.”


Han Ye-seul upon arrival in LA

Other points:

  • As of the 15th, less than 50% of this week’s intended episodes had been filmed.
  • Monday’s episode was pre-empted for a (pointless) special, which was basically the drama’s first 10 episodes condensed into the hour in an extended highlight reel.
  • The drama resumed shoots on the 16th with the other cast members. Apparently they intend to air an episode as scheduled for Tuesday evening. (How they will manage that, I have no idea.)
  • Han’s early-morning arrival in LA on the 16th was confirmed, and she spoke with an SBS program, Entertainment Tonight upon her arrival to say, “I left everything behind. I hope that as a result [of my departure], the other actors will be able to film in a better environment.”
  • Production company Lee Kim Productions has stated its intent to go after Han for civil and possibly also penal suits.
  • Han’s own agency, Sidus HQ, also plans to sue for damages, in conjunction with the producers.
  • Advertisers are also likely litigants; some of the companies she has been contracted to endorse have also expressed the possibility of filing lawsuits.
  • The fate of Han’s next movie, Penny-Pinching Romance with Song Joong-ki, is unclear. The film completed shooting a few months ago and is currently scheduled for a fall release.
  • Rumors are therefore rampant that Han intends to retire. Chances are, that choice is out of her hands now.

Yeah, it looks pretty bad for Han. Keep in mind that we haven’t heard her side of the story, and perhaps we won’t. And I wish I didn’t have to say it again, but it never hurts to repeat: Keep comments civil and keep the mudslinging to a minimum, please. No, scratch that — a minimum isn’t good enough. Let’s go for zero, shall we?

Sure you had all the scripts ready but only 40% of your shoots done the day before airing?

Lol...their basis on being not behind is that the script is in bound form not in loose pages....so maybe the printing people was late?...so its not them?

It sounds to me the PDs didnt do their jobs on time to warrant the smooth schedule. Or wasnt quick to react to the changes that happened while filming... you know like plan B when A fails.... or no productive communication between them( which is very apparent).

The direction of the show's story was all over the place so I can see why she has a problem digesting that...and she's smart to question it...I would. She's probably told to just do it like the script says...lol.

I wonder what they mean when they said its not arduously scheduled drama like others.

Go added, “Actually, KBS was waiting for Han Ye-seul to return through it all. If she returned by Sunday night, the Monday broadcast would have been possible, and if she returned Monday the Tuesday broadcast would have been possible.

I guess this does not mean arduous enough.

Oh well, glad she is alive at least eh?

The reason they only have 40% done is because she kept coming in late and leaving early and then called them a couple days ago and said she wasn't coming anymore at all. This has been going on for days, this didn't just happen over night. They can't film if she doesn't show up to act.

Thank you, PD! How lovely of you to take time off from filming SMW to share insider info with us.

Come on. It's obvious they've been behind as early as episode 5. They've dropped storylines, the action is inconsistent, the plot is all over the place. This is a sign of not only bad writing, but terrible management.

Just say you hate the actress and take a nap or something. You must be tired from hating on her with such passion and determination for the past 48 hours.

I don't understand why other stupid people still praise and defend someone like this bitch. I was trying to convince myself that maybe she has a good reason for leaving, but hell, leaving everything behind in chaos is not a very educated way to correct a mistake. And yeah I'm not afraid to say she's being a diva. She should lead a good example to her co-actors since she said that they're her "hoobaes". What she did was really unprofessional and irrational. And it's a shame that the actors and the production team worked with someone like her.

i hope she just stay in her grave. She was the one who dug it anyway. Good luck, and RIP to your career HYS.

Sorry for not joining your witch hunt.

If she finished production then still complains would people listens? I bet not because they'll think ...why she didnt quit then....so I can see where she is coming from.
What she just did was make people look, listen, argue, debate.....to me thats sounds louder.

SENSE of a woman - maybe she got cancer and only has 6 month to live so she decided to skip the hard work and just run off. Wahaha. She's american and more free spirit anyway. I'm not sure how the work on series in in the US but as long as I follow the news the actors get at least time to sleep. Maybe coz HSY IS American the korean PDs don't take her for full and just have their way with her. You know like "well, schedule changed, we need to be flexible. If everyone is following the order, YOU do it, too!"

I think in the US in the main broadcast stations they start 1-2 months earlier. An episode (45min) is done in 9 days. They divide it into groups e.g. making sets, acting, props ao that at any particular time a group is working on one episode then they move to the next.

For cable series I think its mainly 100% preproduced

Whoa, 'bitch' seems a little harsh considering we haven't heard a peep from her other than she hopes by her leaving it will make the atmosphere easier for her 'hoobaes' - which shows she put thought into this. The whole situation is still very unclear. Maybe she is leading by a good example by saying enough is enough and the cast and crew deserve to be treated better if that is the problem. I would like to hear her side, though I agree with javabeans when she says we may never.

I expect these kinds of comments on soompi or allkpop because people there are generally ignorant, petty, and super jealous, but here?

HYS is all alone -- her agency stabbed her in the back and she's getting ALL the blame when she's obviously not the [only] one at fault. Try putting yourself in her shoes.

Congrats. It's people like you that contribute to Korea's high suicide rate.

I would like to express my disappointment to Han Ye Seul. This drama captured my heart.Love the storyline, the soundtrack and background music especially the violin. Every week, I always wait for the new episodes of this drama.The last scene of episode 10 made more excited to watch this drama.Then when I heard about the news that she left the drama irreasonably while it’s not yet finished, I felt really disappointed to her and I was so sad for not seeing this drama ended well with both her and Eric Mun as the lead.I dont who spoke truth. WHat i can say here, if the change the actress i think i will quit dis drama:(

this...is just blown out of proportion. I feel like she knows what she is doing so we should just let her be. Even though she is a public person she shouldn't feel pressured to keep up her image or something if she is not happy and healthy. I just feel bad for the rest of the drama actors and crew members. We shouldn't blame anyone. It's obvious both sides are at fault here. Let's just hope they make it through the drama without TOO much damage. Hopefully, everyone will learn a lesson. But SURELY, it's not our place to judge so we should just quit it. I hear so much arguments these days about this issue I'm so sick of it. I liked the drama and I'm a bit sad now. But LIFE GOES ON!

C'mon! It is careless words like these that can ruin person's life. We have no reason to assume that she has any other problem than what she stated herself. Pregnancy? That's low, and utterly ill-founded.

Its a pity that "Myung-Wol the Spy" had to suffer the brunt of a screwed-up system. If there is anything/anyone to blame in all of this, it is simply, "Live-shooting". Writers should have enough confidence in themselves to churn up atleast 8 episodes before the show airs, and then work on the rest. I mean, what is the point of Live shoot, when there are ONLY 16-20 episodes to shoot in the first place. A show will be successful if it is good, or it wont. Simple.

I feel that this was bound to happen one day or the other. Its just a pity that a person's career and image has to be completely destroyed to draw attention to all that is WRONG in Kdrama-land, and yet I have little/no hope for this to cause much of a change since the entertainment industry in South Korea seems more like a Star Factory, churning up idols and actors after years of training and trimming and puffing up their egos with enough air to give them a false feel of influence, all the while controlling every aspect of their lives like puppet-masters. I love Korea, it's dramas, its music, but I cant agree with the limited space one gets in this fail-safe, business-oriented world that they have created. Granted, Art without profit is useless, but doesn't the present scenario seem to artificial to be called art in the first place?

Well. If she's pregnant that would explain a lot: why she wanted to keep action scenes to a minimum; why she didn't want to work excessive hours; and why she went back to LA - presumably to go back to the bosom of her family.

Then again these are just guesses, but nevertheless...

Yes, interesting speculation! Pregnancy never entered my mind but it would make sense. And it wouldn't be farfetched since yea...it would explain many of the requests she made to the schedule. It would explain many things! Not trying to spread malicious rumors but I wouldn't be surprised.

I still do not believe that she is pregnant. Since signs of pregnancy does not show physically until atleast the 2nd trimester, and the drama is about to end in mere three weeks.

Anyways, I hear that she is coming back on the 17th, and she had not expected things to go so much out of hand. What she did was wrong, but I still DO NOT think we should speculate such absurdity like a pregnancy, when there are a world of other, more reasonable, causes for her lapse of judgement.

Well lets just hope I get to watch Myung Wol next week!!!!

I think people want to know the "why" of it all. Why would someone who's rising in popularity and/or already pretty popular just walk out? What is her real reason? And I don't mean assumptions from us, I mean as told straight from the horses mouth, in this case, poor Han Ye-seul. Is it anyone's business? Well, Han deserves her privacy yes, but her fans, supporters, and fans of the show need closure before she retires. And I think she'll need this as much as anyone out there because if she never gets it off her chest, it will literally eat away at her. She'll regret not giving herself the chance to explain her reasons, and she'll feel guilty about the people she had let down without so much as a word. I think everyone just wants closure, and I think everyone needs it, Han included.

This incident remains me of the "Dave Chappelle," blow out, I do hope I am right in believing that as in the case of Dave Chappelle, there is a clear and justifiable reason why he walk away from 50 Million dollars, and I want to believe that in her case there is a justifiable reason why she walk of the set.

At the end of the day is her life, and I do not want to start another fight but she was born in America to Korean parents, which makes her an even easier target for mainland Koreans to go after her, since she at the end of the day seen as not fully Korean....But that's just my opinion I can be wrong...

Could also be her US frame of reference re expectations of how she & other workers & actors should generally be treated. Also, suspect that a US born & raised woman, whatever her age or ethnicity, is less able to tolerate the way male chauvinism may manifest itself in SK.

That's a good point.
And before anyone gets their knickers in a twist: no one is saying that SK has more male chauvinism that anywhere else but the particular way in which it is expressed can be even more daunting for a non-native Korean.

Granted, the U.S.'s Entertainment industry is also brutal to its female stars.

It's interesting that since HYS is "American" that people find the system in "KOREA" to be wrong and that it's KOREA's fault that they're not this, that, and the other thing and everything about the American system is so fantastic and Korea is just a backward, fartsy, unstable, and downright stupid - all because HYS walked away from a job? All of a sudden, it's Korea's fault for HYS walking away?

Yes, HYS has the right to complain, protest and to fight for what she considers injustice. BUT, it's NOT right just to walk away without any explanations, other than "I've let everything go." What does this even mean? Does this absolve her from her unprofessionalism? I don't doubt that there are faults in the Korean entertainment industry. But walking away without explaining oneself is NOT a good way to do it. And why blame all of KOREA for one Korean-American's mishaps? It's interesting that she complained about the long hours but never complained about how much she was being paid.

Yes, I get it that she felt overworked, especially if it's true that she had a fiancee and wanted to spend more time with him. Then why sign up to do another drama? If she didn't want to do it, she shouldn't have done it. But if you DO sign up, then you should be professional to see it through and then quit after that. It's like I'm seeing her walk off her job as some kind of act of justice, but I'm sorry, I just can't see it that way. There are other justifiable ways to protest what she perceived were breaches of contract, unreasonable working hours, or whatever. Or for God sakes, call a media conference and complain about it. But to simply walk off without a word? I don't know that I can actually blame Korea for that one.

@spark67.....The only reason why we are scrutinizing the Korean Entertainment Industry, is because that's where this problem started.

I have had the chance to live in the USA, Mexico, England, Ireland, Gran Canaria, and all I can say is that when it comes to workers rights, the USA is the fairest of them all, there is a reason why people from all over the world want to move to the USA, unlike other country's including South Korea, the US still is the land of opportunity, here in the US the actors, writers, and industry people have their Unions that protect them from unjust and inhumane conditions, like the ones found in Korea, and all over Asia.

Han Ye-seul even is she is in the right, the witch-hunt and the character assassination, done to her by the industry, will be almost impossible here in the USA, without any real facts that can stand in a court of law, in Korea the Law man, the politicians, and the big corporations, are in cahoots, it does not matter what she does at this point she will never win her case in Korea I can almost guarantee you that, with out any legal recourse how can she protect herself? It is clear that the TV station where in breech of contract, but still there is nothing that she can do about it, since that's just the Korean way of doing things!!!!

— the killer schedule and the late, piecemeal script deliveries — “an excuse” because “Myung-wol the Spy‘s schedule is not more arduous than other dramas.”
definitely this is not an excuse... it is all wrong... a good reason for her to make a stand..
but to leave the drama half-way through , i think her boycott has gone over the line.
if she has the intention to make such stand, she should have lashed it out through social media or refuse to attend any further interviews/social outings... or wat ever way.
well production company also has it's fault, they should have just changed the PD if she has made such a drastic move ( refuse to shoot, not leaving korea)

kbs is a government-funded broadcast.. good luck to HYS for the lawsuits barging into her way.

Yeah, the it was the PD's fault for letting the production get to the point where her decision to be a no show one weekend would completely derail the drama. That's the point of repeatedly pointing out the 40%.

It's like my students telling me that they couldn't do X assignment or prep for X test because something happened the night before, nevermind that the assignment/test had been announced way in advance.

isn't she the main lead? so even if they plan it better, if she wasn't there, the drama would be derailed regardless.

In this situation, I'd say she's partly to blame. If after one or two episode and the shooting schedule wasn't what she wanted, she should've opted out then. To quit in the middle when everyone else has also put in so much effort is irresponsible and unprofessional.

I don't think she will have a great career with this kind of move. To just up and leave everything she signed up for and having to be responsible for really makes me dislike her as an actress.

The problem with the current system is that it does not build in contingencies. With a better planned drama, the leads wouldn't have been worked to exhaustion and, were something to happen temporarily to the leads (accidents, injuries, etc.), built-in slack in the schedule would allow for the production schedule to be shifted around.

By no means am I suggestion HYS is not culpable (and, I definitely hold the production team culpable). But what I'm trying to point out is that individual culpability merely sidesteps the larger systemic problem.

You say that she should have opted out after 1st or 2nd week. At that point, most people still operate in good faith. They are still holding out faith that the other side will deliver on promises made or telling themselves that they can persevere. Very few people have the ability to recognize early on which situations merit cutting one's losses.

As for her career, I'm sort of surprised that people think she has any left. This was career suicide. I'm just glad it didn't end up an actual suicide. If she still has a career left after this, I will chalk it up to the fickleness of the public.

0

surely they can do other scenes without HYS from Tuesday-Friday, no? how can they expect to finish 60% of the shots over a weekend?

HYS IS unprofessional on this, but the crazy live-shoot is, crazy. just watch Worlds Within and we can get a look at how crazy it can be.

If Han doesn't come back, then is it too much to ask that they'll replace the actress, but keep the character, and everyone can just pretend that Myung-Wol had a random face change or still looks the same or something?

If she is in fact "fighting the system" and "being brave" I don't think she has a very good way of doing it. And her statement of "I hope this makes a better work environment for my future colleagues" is, I'm sorry to say, just illogical.

How is her doing this making a positive impact for future actors? How do you make an impact on future actors when the PRESENT actors and co-stars are suffering from your actions and have clearly stated so?

I won't even begin to talk about all the writers, viewers, staff, etc. who are suffering because of her choices. If she did really need to "escape" that badly for health or mental health reasons I would completely understand. That would be okay.

But I believe that it would be her responsibility as a main functioning unit of this large drama production to provide a bit more information as to why the other workers should be enduring the tempest. Of course she doesn't have to reveal "everything" - privacy is OKAY - but when you are holding the time and effort of people in your actions then they should be informed, even a bit, as to why you are doing your actions - if you don't do so, it *does* make you look like someone who just doesn't care.

The way I think she should have gone about it, if "protesting" and "taking a stance for better work environments" is really what she wanted to do, is wait till the drama was finished and then focus a lot of time and effort on promoting and speaking for such things. Or, while the production is going, keep people informed of the working conditions she had to endure. Netizens, I hear, are a powerful force, if they hear a beloved actress is suffering they will show concern.

Truthfully speaking, I'm disappointed with how she handled things. Please feel free to disagree with me, I really do love to be proven wrong. I will listen openly and with sensitivity if you have a varying opinion that you are passionate about.

I definitely see that. I also stated in my post above that if her health (mental or physical) really was, to her perspective, in danger, then she made the right choice. There is absolutely no need to feel in danger like that. If she felt "fleeing" was the only solution for those kind of problems at the time, that would be quite alright if not perfectly justifiable.

How about this....

If she waited..I wonder if people will still listens...its finished and it fared poorly in ratings. Would they care?

If she informed people while in production that she's already physically and mentally exhausted... they tell her to take a number there's people ahead of you, (since her request to lighter schedules got ignored repeatedly).

Can you see the dilemma she is in?

Not saying this to be argumentative but contemplative.

so choices are kill herself to exhaustion, fight or flee.

I wont kill myself for that so choice one is out....two: fight? you serious with my lone self?...or flee...which she did.

If she was in a serious condition mentally or physically - I have already mentioned - that I would be all for her "fleeing" - a 100 approval, not that mine needs to be given, but nonetheless, I see that as a perfectly justifiable thing to do if her health was, in her perspective, in danger.

And as far as "people not listening" ....do you think they are listening now? I think more people see her not as standing up for rights....but as running away from problems and leaving things, and people, in a time of chaos. If you look at some of the more mainstream "entertainment news" forums people are giving her quite some hatin'. I don't approve of that level of criticism before a completed court case but....so it is.

I believe the level of response she would have gotten if she truly protested the working conditions verbally, textually, or otherwise, might have been not as "spicy" as this news....but....blowing up a building would make a pretty big point too....people who protest things don't go to extremes to make their point. Yes it might take longer. But it's a large system and it will take time to change things...one actresses acting in such a manner doesn't promote getting rid of stressful work environments...it merely is "hot news" as to an actress leaving her work, staff, and co-workers to a large problem they have to face.

But didn't she grow up in the states? I don't know how things are in Korea, but I imagine that they're much different than they are here in North America. I think she's trying to fight the system, but she's doing it in a way that doesn't fit together well with the culture she's in now. After all, I'm pretty sure that if you were an actor in the states, you wouldn't have to go through such grueling film schedules. I remember people telling me that the entertainment industry in Korea is full of virtual slave drivers, and this, in combination with her North American upbringing kind of explains her actions to me.

Even if they are completely unprofessional...

If I were Han Ye Seul right now, I don't know what I'd do with myself.

Personally, I'm an actress myself, and I can understand being overworked so much that it reaches a breaking point. I've quit one show in-progress because of mental and physical exhaustion. I hated doing it and dread to see the director ever again, but for my personal sanity, I had to drop the show. Han Ye Seul probably faced even more difficulty with her role in "Spy Myung Wol." The problem is that the Korean film industry is so small that she can't just drop one show and expect to have her reputation still be in tact. I hope her film comes out as planned - better not to have yet ANOTHER company suing you for charges.

I would just really hate to be her right now, honestly. Poor girl, really. It's not like she can salvage any parts of her career at this point. She might have to go out in hiding in LA for several years before anyone's willing to give her another change in Korea :/

Then again, the producers probably have to change attitude of live drama shoots. I pitied those actors who don deeper and deeper black eyes as the episodes go by and thus too tired to give their best. Even Gong Hyo Jin, one of the most acknowledge actresses, said she was kind of disappointed with her own acting at the later part of Best Love.

It should be shot at least half of the episodes before airing. If they do good writing and shoot, audience certainly will receive it well. Why do they need to do live shoot?

It's hard to measure popularity objectively, but let's just say I've seen her face all over Seoul numerous times, and every Korean knows who she is.

(In Korea, because of the size of both the industry and the country, it's not as much a measure of fame to say that everyone knows her as it would be if we were talking about an American actress, but it still means she's more famous than a good chunk of other actresses. She's not at the level of Kim Tae Hee or Choi Ji-Woo, but she's still A-list).

There are two sides of a coin. This statement is just one side. We still need to hear her side of things. When she finally does share her side, I think then would be a good time to decide who we want to stand by. At this point it seems a lot of the blame falls on Han's shoulders, but that doesn't mean it's the truth (need I remind anyone about how the Nazi's rewrote German history in favor of their teachings on race and German pride???), but neither does it mean it's false. Patience has it's rewards I guess. How long people are willing to be patient is a whole different matter.

P.S. Uh, as for Lee Da Hae? *shrugs* I never really followed her career so I don't really know to what extent people like/hate her. I only know via DB that she needs help in the PR department.

I'm saying this out of amusement and lightheartedness, Ani. Really not out of angry spite or anything.

I think why most people are not jumping to her defense, at this point, is because she is providing very little information IN her defense...I mean...even her mother is trying to fix things for her back in S. Korea....

Now I'm not saying there could be a very good reason for her departure...there could be.

Truthfully? I think using the Nazis is just easy to grab off the top of anyone's head (although, I was surprised to learn in college that not everyone knows about Nazis rewriting their history books in their favor). But, if you need another example, how about the Cheyenne Government rewriting American History? (What? On a forum/blog site that revolves around make believe worlds, I think an answer based on a fictional character/entity is valid enough and should be accepted. HAHAHA. *cough* Sorry, it's pretty late where I am.)

I think I'd be mad too. And don't get me wrong, I feel bad for the other cast members and staff too. This is their bread and butter here afterall, but.... I just can't help but feel sorry for everyone involved (cast, staff, crew, and Han Ye-seul and her family). And maybe it's just my upbringing, but, I was taught to get my facts straight before I make any final decisions. I don't want to hastily condemn her without at least hearing her out.

I see your point about "innocent till proven guilty" I am usually all for that - just perhaps....with a bit less casualties such as are present in this scenario.

Heh, maybe it's the place I live (Russian family etc.) but Natzis seem to be one of those things constantly at ones disposal to "make a pt." and then in the States it seems every other politician is being called "Hitler" every other week - in the end...it get's a bit much, eh?

As far as history....the only way to get subjective is to study a lot of it, from a lot of countries, and perhaps even in a lot of languages (if the translations prove incapable of sufficiency or variety). Being from a country with it's own frequent attempts to write history I have little faith in using one source or one countries depiction of their own history.

Moving away from ignorance is the only solution.

And yes, that William Wallace quote is quite nice!

Want a non-Nazi example of rewriting or hiding history? I don't know about now, but when I was in school American History Text books normally skimmed over the plight of the Native American after the arrival of the pilgrims. We used to have ongoing debates about how in one thick text books, they'd only have just a paragraph or two about the Trail of Tears or just a small section in a small chapter about how the pilgrims intentionally gave blankets to the Natives filled with Chicken Pox, small pox, and other illnesses the Natives were not immune to. It's not completely hiding it, but it sure as heck makes light of it. Teachers go all out to correct this by discussing it more in class, but the books and those who write these textbooks sure try to hide it - in some ways, trying to decrease any written proof in classrooms that some/most of the pilgrims were assholes.

I have nothing against people defending HYS. In fact, it warms my heart a bit to see that people are being at least a bit rational, and not so ready to join a witchhunt.

But it breaks my heart a little to say I agree with you that if this was LDH, the reaction would be much different, much more harsh, including the attitude in all the articles posted so far on the matter here on dramabeans. I find it so sad, I hope people, including javabeans, realize now how biased they were back then. What happened with LDH, regardless of backlash, was at least handled professionally, and had no ill affects, immediate or otherwise, on cast and crew. If anything it is preferrable to the current happenings with HYS and SMW.

When / if she explains more, I'm turning my attention to the others involved in this and how they're going to handle the rest of the on-screen drama.
