Song Hye Kyo and Jang Ki Yong’s latest drama, ‘Now, We Are Breaking Up’ is in the spotlight of netizens. Not only the cast and the storyline, the drama is allegedly imitating the scandal that has been done by Irene Red Velvet.
In episode two of SBS drama ‘Now, We Are Breaking Up’, there is a scene that is very similar to Red Velvet’s Irene controversy some time ago. The scene between Ha Young Eun (Song Hye Kyo) and Hye Rin (Yura Girl’s Day) that made the audience remember the idol case.
In the scene, Hye Rin the social media influencer is invited to attend a big event. The famous Hye Rin looks arrogant by trying to manage everyone even though she doesn’t have much experience in the fashion world.
Hye Rin scolds Ha Young Eun’s team for even looking down on the company’s design. He also threw clothes on the floor violently. As a result of her haughty and rude behavior, Hye Rin was replaced with a more influential figure in the fashion industry.
Details of the scene in the drama, which just aired on November 12, are said to be similar to Red Velvet’s Irene behavior scandal that shocked the public about a year ago.
Irene’s behavior was exposed when a fashion stylist from a well-known magazine accused the idol of cursing and verbally harassing her for 20 minutes in a row.
After the accusations were uploaded on social media, many people who work in the fashion industry commented in a form of support for the fashion stylist. This seems to justify the accusation for Irene.
Not long after, Irene admitted and confirmed the accusation. He also apologized via uploads on Instagram. SM Entertainment as the agency for the girl group Red Velvet also wrote an apology and asked Irene to come directly to the fashion stylist’s house to apologize officially.
