Former Idol Revealed To Have Been Scammed For $80,000 After Filming SBS Drama

It’s been nearly ten years and she still hasn’t been paid.

Former Fin.K.L member turned actress Sung Yuri has revealed that she still has not been paid her appearance fee from the 2009 SBS drama Swallow the Sun.

A representative from her agency SL Entertainment commented on the matter, revealing legal action has not helped in recovering the money owed.

“Sung Yuri has not received her payment for appearing in the SBS drama Swallow the Sun in 2009.

We know that the amount owed is over ₩80 million KRW ($75,200 USD). We have gone through various legal measures via the Korean Entertainment and Management Association due to the non-payment but the issue still has not been resolved.”

SL Entertainment also clarified that Swallow the Sun is the only drama out of the 13 Sung Yuri has acted in that has not paid her.

Swallow the Sun also featured Ji Sung and Ma Dong Seok, as well as current stars So Yi Hyun, Jin Goo, and Yeo Jin Goo.
