Kim Jung-hyun’s Awful Treatment to Seohyun During Time
Kim Jung-hyun and Seo Ye-ji starred in the movie Remembering First Love in 2018 as a sweet couple. It was reported that they were in a relationship during the filming of the drama Time starring Kim Jung-hyun.
Meanwhile, Kim Jung-hyun was recently reported to be dating Seo Ji-hye, his co-star in the hit drama Crash Landing on You. However, their respective agencies denied the reports.
According to Dispatch, Kim Jung-hyun’s unprofessional behavior was influenced by Seo Ye-ji, who was his girlfriend at the time. Seo Ye-ji kept urging Kim Jung-hyun to avoid intimate scenes and to be curt towards Seohyun and other female staff. Not only that but the video during the press conference for the drama Time also returned with excitement. At that time, Kim Jung-hyun seemed reluctant to hold Seohyun’s hand.
To prove this, Dispatch also released a chat between Kim Jung-hyun and Seo Ye-ji at that time which was then viral in cyberspace. However, in his apology, Kim Jung-hyun did not mention Seo Ye-ji’s name at all.
Insiders and staff from the drama Time also spoke up. Kim Junghyun is said to have asked the scriptwriter to change the storyline. In fact, at that time, the author was sick.
“He constantly asked to adjust the script on set. If his request was not met, he then ran out,” said one of the staff.
Seohyun also had a hard time while filming the drama Time. “Every time Seohyun tried to get into a role, she would get in the way. She had a hard time. She cried a lot,” he added.

Previously, South Korean media Dispatch revealed one of the causes of actor Kim Jung-hyun’s rude attitude towards Seohyun in the K-drama titled Time. Dispatch named actress Seo Ye-ji as the mastermind behind Kim Jung-hyun’s abusive behavior in the drama. She is said to have forbidden Jung-hyun from coming into contact with female co-stars. Dispatch said Seo Ye-ji asked Kim Jung-hyun not to do any touching in 13 pre-planned scenes.
In the released text message, Seo Ye-ji forbade Kim Jung-hyun from having physical contact with Seohyun. This made Kim Jung-hyun ask for many scene changes in the script, causing the writer and crew a lot of trouble.
