K-Drama ‘River Where the Moon Rises’ Cancelled Filming, Netizens Signed A Petition



The newly released Korean Drama River Where The Moon Rises is facing risk of cancellation due to a scandal regarding one of its actors. The main lead of the KBS Drama, Ji Soo is facing backlash due to his recent bullying scandal.

The issue however is related to his past during his middle school years. An online community revealed that Ji Soo was a violent student and created all misdeeds. The user confessed to being harassed by the actor when they were in school together in 2008.

The user explained that he felt disgusted by Ji Soo’s pretentious act that he is good.

“I don’t expect reward or apology. There is no need to apologize for irreversible things,” he said.

Since then, many have come forward to concur with the first author’s claim. One even includes sexual assault.  This further damages the actor’s reputation.

Ji Soo Apologised

Following the viral posts, the actor has apologized through a handwritten letter posted on his Instagram. He expresses his regrets over his past action.

A post shared by Jisoo (@actor_jisoo)

“I sincerely apologise to those who have suffered because of me. There is no excuse for misconduct in the past. It was an unforgivable act. As I started acting, it seems that I came to this point with undeserved attention from the public while covering up my past. However, there was always a feeling of guilt about the past in one side of my heart, and regret that it was too late to turn back always came to me with great anxiety. The dark past has always crushed me.”

“I will deeply atone for those who have suffered for a long time while seeing myself as an actor, and reflect on and regret my past. It is painful and sinful to inflict tremendous damage to the broadcasters, production crew, actors, and staff members who have kept the drama scene silently due to my personal fault. I sincerely hope that the drama will no longer be damaged by me. I sincerely apologise on my knees to everyone who has been hurt by me.” – Ji Soo

Agency’s Response

However, the damage is done. Netizens initiated a petition to remove the actor from the drama. After the actor admitted the scandal, more than 5,5000 netizens signed the petition.

Ji Soo’s agency, Keyeast is investigating this matter. They promised to verify the facts. The agency then apologised for causing concern to many people.

The drama team at KBS on the other hand is still deciding on their next step.

“We are holding a meeting today regarding whether Ji Soo should continue to appear in the drama or not. We will make our position clear as soon as the decision is made. The updated filming schedule will also be decided then.”

The drama River Where the Moon Rises has only aired 6 out of 20 slated episodes thus far. Today, the drama officially cancels filming while the creators are still deciding whether to remove the character from the show or replace him. Removing the character altogether will prove to be quite a feat since he is the main character.

Whatever decision they will take, hopefully fans of this drama and Ji Soo could accept. Also, we could learn that our past will always catch up to us. But it still never too late to repent.

Separated Since Babies, This Identical Twins Finally Reunite After 36 Years



Identical twins Molly Sinert and Emily Bushnell were separated at birth in South Korea and adopted by different families. Molly went on living in Florida while Emily in Pennsylvania. The siblings spent most of their lives totally unaware of each other’s existence and little information about their birth family.

But everything changes after Emily’s 11-year-old daughter, Isabel wanted to make a DNA test to explore her heritage.

Isabel said, “I wanted to do the DNA test because she was adopted. I wanted to find out if I had more family on her side.”

Meanwhile in Florida, Molly also decided she wanted to take a DNA test to find out more about her mother’s history. The database confirmed her relations with Emily.

“(The results said:) ‘You share 49.96% DNA with this person. We predict that she’s your daughter’. This is obviously not right because I’ve never gone into labor, I don’t have children.”

Shortly after, she figured out that she must be her sister. They contacted each other but decided not to have a video call until they met in person.

Even though Emily didn’t feel comfortable taking the test, but finding out about her twin makes everything so clear.

“Although I have family who loves me and has been wonderful, there was always a feeling of disconnection. Finding out that I had an identical twin sister just made everything so clear. It all makes sense.”

As the twins got to know each other, they discovered more and more similarities between themselves.

Emily added: “Our senior prom picture…we were both wearing a beaded dress with a strapless style and our hair was exactly the same.

Emily concluded by describing the reunion as ‘the happiest moment of her life’.
