Last month T-ara was surrounded by the controversy with Eunjung’s bullying claims. Following those claims Eunjung was removed from an upcoming drama, “Five Fingers”, on short notice and later replaced by actress Jin Saeyeon.
Various Korean media have confirmed that Eunjung and Core Contents Media have began legal actions against the production company behind SBS’s “Five Fingers”.
The legal challenge is for 148 million won for damages caused to her reputation as a singer and actress.
CCM’s challenge was based on the short notice that Eunjung received to step down from the drama without adequate notice.
T-ara’s Eunjung was selected to take the female lead for the drama, attending both the press launch and script reading session. Eunjung was then taken out the drama for fear of the drama’s ratings due to the controversy surrounding her.
