In October 2022, Song Ji Hyo joined fellow Running Man star Ji Suk Jin at Uzurocks. Six months after joining the agency, on April 24, it was revealed that she notified Uzurocks of the termination of her exclusive contract because she lost “trust” in them. Kim Young Chan, the director of Uzurocks, responded to Sports Seoul, clarifying the situation.

The exclusive contract with Song Ji Hyo has not been terminated. The agency temporarily deleted her from the portal site to protect the actress’s image.

The CEO of Uzurocks, Park Joo Nam, also sent a text message to Sports Seoul stating that their contract with Song Ji Hyo was not terminated.

The director and CEO’s explanations, however, were overturned in just three hours and 48 minutes when Uzurocks stated in an official press release that day that they acknowledged the agreement with the actress.

We acknowledge the agreement with actress Song Ji Hyo to terminate the exclusive contract.

They apologized to their actors for not paying attention to the details.

Meanwhile, on April 5, it was reported that Uzurocks was having financial issues, causing their actors and employees to not get their paychecks on time. Ten employees were let go due to financial hardships, and a few testified against the company, confirming their missed payments and the lack of apology from Uzurocks.
