As evidence, the netizen provided a screenshot of the comments. In one of the screenshots, an IP address ending in 59.15 can be seen writing compliments to “Ok Soon” while insulting her castmates.
Wikitree “If Ok Soon gained weight, she would look like Han Ga In. She looks like a skinny Seo Yea Ji.” “She (Ok Soon) seems so fragile and reminds me of Seo Yea Ji and YoonA. I’ve become entranced by her.” “Young Sook, did you get a nose job?” “Soon Ja is the worst out of the women contestants.” “Defcon is funny.” “Hyun Sook eats more than Hibap.” “She’s acting cute.” “This is Ok Soon when she was 27, she must have been so popular.”
The netizen then uploaded a screenshot of the show’s group chat. In the group chat, Ok Soon claimed that the comments were written by an acquaintance of hers.
“Yes! 5915 is my acquaintance, so I can’t sue them. And I would like to first apologize to the people here and admit my wrong. First, since there were so many bad posts about me, I asked my acquaintance to post some positive posts. Second, I am sorry to everyone here who was affected by my actions. Because they are my acquaintance, I can’t tell you to sue them, but people have different levels of tolerance, and it is your freedom to sue. Anyway, I am apologizing on behalf of my acquaintance for this controversy and my actions.”
The post follows news that Ok Soon would be suing Young Sook (Real name redacted), after allegedly bad-mouthing her. You can read more about it in the link below.
Is this the most problematic cast ever?
