Welcome to another edition of SB Week in Review! Here’s all the news you might have missed:


  • The Me Too movement continues to have an impact on the South Korean entertainment industry. This week it was reported that there will be a new clause in actors’ contracts stating that if an actor is accused of sexual harassment during filming of a drama, the actor will have to pay a penalty and be re-cast.
  • Due to mismanagement, Fantagio is no longer part of the The Korea Entertainment Management Association (KEMA). Fantagio is looking into a review of the case, and seeking a new director for the agency. Meanwhile, the actors signed with the agency will still maintain their KEMA membership.
  • BTS performed “Fake Love” for the first time at the Billboard Music Awards — though the camera work did prompt some head scratching from fans.
