The plagiarism charges leveled against actress Yoon Eun Hye did not prevent her from winning another round of the Chinese design reality show "Goddesses' New Fashion" aka "Goddesses' New Clothes."
The program teams up professional designers and celebrities who must then create their own exclusive line. The format of the show is similar to the American design reality show "Project Runway."
According to the Korean media outlet Joongang Daily, the actress won for a third time thanks to her creation of a full-length gray coat. Paired with a handmade clutch, the coat won the highest bids from the show's guests and online shopping malls. The designs earned a bid of $6.5 million for the exclusive right to sell the coat.
One of the guests bidding for the coat was EXO's Tao. Yoon was so grateful for the support she received that she began to cry.
"There's more to it than meets the eye," she said. "I appreciate people who have supported me."
In September the actress was accused of copying a coat created by designer Yoon Choon Ho. The coat was not exactly the same but both coats were white with fringed sleeves.
The designer questioned the similarities on social media, prompting the controversy.
But Yoon Eun Hye's agency J Army Entertainment denied the accusation, saying that the actress had not seen Yoon Choon Yo's design and that her coat was inspired by the film "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe."
Shortly after the controversy made the headlines, the actress canceled some of her appearances at upcoming scheduled events. According to an article published in the Korean media outlet Ilgan Sports, the actress said she would not make a scheduled appearance at the Busan International Film Festival.
"She will not be appearing at the Busan International Film Festival, as previously announced," said a statement by her agency. "For the time being, she is carefully considering activities in Korea and China. She currently doesn't have any plans."
Her agency also stated that she would not return for the third season of the Chinese fashion program. The actress debuted as a member of the girl group Baby V.O.X. She is known for her appearance in the dramas "Coffee Prince," "Princess Hours," "Missing You" and "Marry Him If You Dare."
This year she can be seen in the film "After Love" with co-star Park Shi Hoo.
