As previously reported, Kim Jung Hyun faced criticism for his reckless behaviour in caring for his ‘Time’ star Seohyun. Rumour has it that it was his girlfriend at the time, the character Seo Ye Ji, who influenced her. Netizens then apologized, and Kim Jung Hyun issued a handwritten apology.

It all started when Kim Jung Hyun came out of the game, Time. The actor cited health issues as the reason and reportedly did not work this year. The actor has been subjected to harassment due to rumours that he was insulting his Soohyun character. The actor eventually quit and apologised for his behaviour on the set with Seohyun. Scenes involving any skin-ship or physical contact were removed as per the actress’ saying.

Soon, however, messages between Kim Jung Hyun and the rumoured girlfriend Seo Ye-Ji began circulating online. The text showed Seo Ye-Ji asking Jung Hyun to avoid any contact with his Time partner, actor Seohyun, and asking him to write any romance without text. Seo Ye-Ji’s writings apparently also asked her to stay away from female staff members on the set.


On September 25, Kim Jung Hyun wrote and posted the following letter:

“Hello. This is Kim Jung Hyun. If anyone feels a little uncomfortable about me writing a post, I’m sorry. To convey my feelings to those who have been trying and praying for me, I have taken courage.

A few months ago I felt like I was floating not knowing where the floor was. I was busy trying to persuade myself, and I felt empty as if I had no place to rest my heart. It had been hard for me to just hold on, but on the other hand, and it was a time when I couldn’t look back at the deepest parts of my heart.

I am a very poor person. I’ve been thinking about not taking responsibility for the decisions I’ve made. I have been busy blaming others, and I admit my mistake in not being able to take care of my health. This post also has a guide for where to look.

I am an actor. I was thinking about how to get back and how to connect with the community again. After thinking about it, I think that’s the only thing I can do. Thus I met Story J Company, I was able to find the courage in the way they would accept me the way I was and they promised to take care of me. I was touched by their warm feeling. Thank you for being a friend I can go with.

I also extend my gratitude to the people who have been with me for my previous label. Without them, I would not be who I am today. I hope we both have only bright days in the future. More before it is too late, I would like to thank the many journalists who criticized my mistakes and those who sent me various messages on those topics.

Lastly to the fans who have been waiting for me so far and giving me strength, I bow my head in gratitude. Thanks to you guys, I was able to gain strength. I will keep in mind the integrity you have sent me and I will live a life that is locked in that so that it will not fall. Even if I do, I will get up and move on.

I will be vigilant with a step forward. I will live a life focused on imitation and reward you for showing my positive side. Once again, I apologize to those who have hurt me, and I will improve myself to become a better person. “
