JYJ Park Yoo-chun was on the top of the list when it came to casting for dramas as of late, but now his reputation has hit the ground. Drama directors are saying it's going to be tough to have him in any dramas now.
TV Report asked a couple of directors about Park's return in dramas but everyone has a negative view on him now. One director said, "Even if he is innocent, no one would want to use a star whose fans have turned their backs on".
Not only is this rape case a bad influence but his agency's involvement with gangsters is not good news for him.
Another director said, "It is shocking to hear the involvement of his agency with violent groups so it's not going to end well".
A third director said, "Drama directors don't think too differently than the public. There's no reason for us to use a celebrity who has become a social target. It's going to negatively influence the drama and we can't ask him to take responsibility for it".
Park Yoo-chun was sued for allegedly raping a waitress in the bathroom of a bar and three more came along with similar cases.
Park's agency claims he's going to retire from the showbiz if he turns out to be guilty and won't say anything else officially until police have come up with a verdict.
