We assessed that it is currently difficult for Ji Soo to carry out activities, and we respect the actor’s personal intention to not cause further harm to the agency, so a mutual final decision was made to terminate his contract.”
On May 27, Ji Soo posted his last post on his personal Instagram page to apologize to the audience and will take necessary legal steps to combat the baseless rumors against him. .
Since then, he has almost disappeared from the Korean entertainment industry.
The latest information is that Ji Soo enlisted in the army in early October this year.

To be fair, despite the scandal, Ji Soo is really a good and talented actor. So we hope everyone will give him a chance to return to the entertainment industry.
Meanwhile, Ji Soo’s former agency KeyEast is in a legal battle with Victory Contents, the production house of ‘River Where The Moon Lies’. Victory Contents claimed that 90% of the shooting was done when the allegations surfaced due to which they had to restart the filming from scratch and introduce a new male lead. KeyEast has informed in their latest statement, “Regarding the ongoing lawsuit on “River Where The Moon Rises,” we will do our best until the end in order to resolve the situation.”
