Nam Gyu-ri and Seeya throw punchesPosted: April 28, 2009
And the fight goes on.
Nam Gyu-ri has been leaving responses on her own ‘Cyworld’ homepage regarding her betrayal of ‘Seeya’. In response, Kim Kwang-soo, the director of ‘Core Contents Media’ has been throwing punches at Nam Gyu-ri left and right. Each punch being harder than the first each time she leaves a response on her ‘Cyworld’ homepage.
What started as a matter of contract infringement has now become a bigger issue. Kim Kwang-soo has since then exposed stories of Nam Gyu-ri having a boyfriend who is her sponsor, wanting special treatment, this being her second betrayal, and being money hungry. But this surely wasn’t enough for him because he pulled out his next card-Lee Bo-ram and Kim Yeon-ji of ‘Seeya’.
Lee Bo-ram and Kim Yeon-ji of ‘Seeya’ have decided to tell their side of the story in front of camera’s instead of behind a computer screen like their ex-partner. This past 26th, on the set of ‘Womens Generation-Eternal Love’ MV film set, the two held a mini press conference of tears. Lee Bo-ram responded to Nam Gyu-ri’s ‘Cyworld’ messages in tears stating,
There are a lot of thing’s Nam Gyu-ri said that were distorted. If there were so many problems with our company, we would have left as well. I’m confused and just don’t understand why there are so many false stories that are being told. We saw the message Nam Gyu-ri left on her homepage today. This is all so appalling. It’s a shame because Director Kim Kwang-soo worked harder than anyone for Nam Gyu-ri. It’s nonsense that Nam Gyu-ri was mistreated. Because of Nam Gyu-ri, our stylist changed so many times. It’s to the extent that we don’t have any more coordinators that will work with us, and even our hair salon was changed many times. Our company went out of their way to accomodate her needs. Because of her we went through a lot of hardships and pain. Her claims to have made only $80 million KRW during the past 3 years is not true as well. Before we began our 3rd album activities she was preparing for her role as an actress and told us she wouldn’t be able to contribute and be active for our 3rd album for long. We were hurty by what she said because we’re merely beings that just really wanted to sing. Still, since we felt that it was a good opportunity for her to pursue her career as an actress, we wanted to cheer her on. But while preparing for our 3rd album she told us that if she didn’t have any solo parts she wouldn’t participate in the 3rd album. We were appalled and disappointed by what she said. I really don’t understand why she feels so upset and victimized. We didn’t have much problems as a team but as time went by she gave us so many scars. As a leader of a team she wasn’t able to take on her responsibilities. We haven’t been able to get in contact with her for a while now. So many people think that all this happened over night but it didn’t. Those times were hard and painful for us to endure. I really didn’t want to have to come out and say this…but Nam Gyu-ri who had to make this whole situation is just…
Kim Yeon-ji didn’t say as much but surely didn’t refrain from expressing her feelings either.
It’s not like we weren’t able to express our opinions as well. We kept quiet on the matter only because we felt that it would only lead to hurting each others feelings. We kept quiet because we wanted to end everything on good terms but things were getting blown out of proportion and put our company and ourselves in an awkard position. There’s nothing more I can say but I hope this whole situation won’t get any worse than it needs to. We believe that even others won’t believe that she only made $80 million KRW either. There’s a number of activities she took on (acting and singing career) during that time and by just looking at that it doesn’t make sense that she only made $80 million KRW. From our point of view this is just betrayal and it’s upsetting and hurtful for us.
Again, Nam Gyu-ri chose to speak through her ‘Cyworld’ homepage.
I hated having to join hands with the devil. I didn’t want to live the kind of life people commonly talk about, about being entangled and bound to money. Who is the person behind me? When did I have a dual contract? Who is my sponsor and who is this boyfriend that is helping me? How much money did I make and how many hidden secrets contained within secrets do i have to reveal? This whole matter has turned into a huge “he said, she said” situation we’ve all dealt with in elementary school. The three members and company involved should really stop with the media play. It’s starting to make them all look bad because they all just seem to be playing victim. It’s time for them to invest the pretty penny they made into something called a lawyer and take it to court already.
