AceShowbiz - Another female celebrity has opened up about her past sexual harassment. Former %cAfter School% member %cYoo Soo Young% claimed during her appearance in the latest episode of "Heard It Through the Grapevine" that she was sexually harassed by a CEO of a label.
The 31-year-old actress shared that the incident happened when she went to a dinner with a label she was about to sign with, saying that the CEO of the label wanted to take her home. "We all went drinking and I was about to go home, and the CEO said he would take me home," she said. "I was the only woman, and when we got into the taxi, he held my hand. I knew right then that I had to be alert."
Soo Young went on sharing her story by saying that she tried sending the man away to no avail. "I tried to send the CEO away after getting out of the taxi, but he got off after me and said he wanted to talk to me," she continued. "It was late at night and nothing was open, and I was scared, so we went to a fast food place that was open 24 hours."
"He held my hand and said, 'I like you and see you as a woman. I'm not going to let you go until you say okay,' " she further explained, remarking that she told the CEO to cancel her contract after he confessed. "I told him, 'I'm sorry but I don't see it like that. Please cancel my contract.' "
Her allegations aside, Soo Young was rumored to break up with her boyfriend %cSon Heung Min%, who is a soccer player. A source revealed that the two, who were revealed to be dating in November 2015, decided to split because Heung Min's father demanded his son to focus on his career instead of dating. However, the pair quickly denied the rumor.
