Park Shin-hye’s Husband Named Amid “Burning Sun” Scandal, Even Lost a Role to the Controversy?

Another celebrity has come under public scrutiny following BBC's release of a film about the Burning Sun scandal.

Media outlet BBC recently released a documentary focusing on the shocking Burning Sun scandal. The film reveals the arduous journey of two female Korean journalists as they expose the sexual scandals involving famous K-Pop stars. Through the documentary, viewers can see the horrifying actions of Seungri and his associates as they treated women as sexual tools and commodities to profit from VIP guests at the nightclub.

The one-hour documentary tells the story of reporters Park Hyo-sil and Kang Kyung-yoon, who gradually uncovered and brought to light these terrifying truths. This led to a wave of boycotts against those involved in Burning Sun throughout South Korea, including Seungri, Jung Joon-young, Choi Jong-hoon, and even Zico and Hyuna for their relationships with involved people.

Recently, another figure has come under the netizens’ radar: Choi Tae-joon, the husband of famous actress Park Shin-hye. The reason he is being mentioned is that he was part of a close-knit group with Seungri, Jung Joon-young, Choi Jong-hoon, and Zico. This has led netizens to question whether he is truly innocent.

In the past, Choi Tae-joon often displayed his close friendship with Jung Joon-young and Lee Jong-hyun on television. They frequently posted photos together on social media. Their friendship reportedly began when they participated in the show “We Got Married.”

In 2019, when Jung Joon-young first became embroiled in the scandal, Choi Tae-joon faced intense scrutiny from netizens. This was because he suddenly left the cast of “Hotel Del Luna” even after completing the script reading session. This was a major film project featuring the popular idol-actress IU, making it a significant opportunity for Choi Tae-joon to advance his career. However, he left at the last minute. Many rumors arose, suggesting that his departure was due to his association with Jung Joon-young, which could tarnish the K-drama’s reputation.

At that time, tvN had to make a statement to clear Choi Tae-joon’s name. The network explained that Choi left the project due to some disagreements regarding the film’s direction and his character’s personality. However, this explanation was not very convincing, as Choi Tae-joon had already participated in the script reading and met with the team, forcing them to quickly find a replacement.
