A netizen claiming to be a former staffer posted a lengthy exposé revealing the alleged abuse that they suffered at the hands of the It’s Okay To Not Be Okay actress. The former staffer started off by sharing the horror the team felt whenever they had to work with Seo Ye Ji.

At our company, all of us would fight so that we wouldn’t have to work with Seo Ye Ji. I would cry and tell my company that I didn’t want to work with her, but they always told me to suck it up and do it to help further my career. I ended up working with her for a few years because of that.

This is when they started to share the verbal abuse that they endured while working with the actress. The alleged former staffer also shared the scary methods Seo Ye Ji would use to instill fear into her staff.

While working, she would always curse at us. I don’t think she knew the secondhand smoke that we would get, but she always smoked inside the car and would always make us buy her more cigarettes. If we made even the smallest mistakes, she would yell at us while blowing smoke in our faces.

The original poster of this tell-all confessed that while they wanted to record evidence of all their experiences, they were unable to do so due to the constant phone checks that were required by the actress.

She would check our phones periodically so I was unable to record anything.

They continued by expressing their frustration towards the actress. They shared that everything revolved around the actress and how she was feeling that day. They revealed that if Seo Ye Ji was in a bad mood, it was expected that everyone match her mood.

Whenever she said she was in a bad mood, she never ate anything and so we were unable to eat. She also told us that actors are people who work solely with their emotions so we were expected to give in to everything she wanted.

Are you the only human because you work with your emotions, Seo Ye Ji-sshi? What are we then, dogs and pigs? You curse at us and yell at us, do we not have emotions?

The alleged former staffer also revealed that they were threatened by the actress numerous times whenever a bad rumor would circulate.

If there were bad rumors going around about her, she would come up to us and say, ‘I know it’s you guys. This industry is small, be careful with what you say or I will make it hard for you guys to get jobs.’ Do you remember threatening us like that?

I wanted to keep working in this industry so I didn’t say anything about you because I was scared of your threats. I regret not saying anything and letting the days pass as I suffered mental distress and verbal abuse while working for you.

After this shocking tell-all went live, netizens began to express their horror at the allegations made against the actress.
