According to an exclusive report from Sports Chosun, a representative from coffee chain Mega Coffee told the media outlet that Kim Sae Ron has never been employed at any of the coffee chain’s locations throughout South Korea.
We can confirm that Kim Sae Ron has never worked as an official part-timer employee at any store in the country.
The store owner of the location in question has a part-time employee who is friends with Kim Sae Ron. However, the owner stated that Kim Sae Ron herself never worked as an employee there.
