Korean media outlet Channel A has reported that actress renowned actress Clara has filed a lawsuit against her agency Polaris Entertainment seeking to nullify her contract on the grounds of sexual harassment.
Clara’s lawsuit is directed at Polaris Entertainment CEO Mr. Lee who allegedly texted her frequently with messages like, “I am married but I have a girlfriend, and I think that you’re different from the other entertainers because you make my heart flutter,” and “If you get married, you’ll become unhappy.”
In Clara’s statement, she explains, “She felt sexual humiliation and harassment from the words and actions of Mr. Lee, who is over 60 years old. Mr. Lee also fired her manager and Mr. Kim without cause.”
In response, Polaris Entertainment has countersued Clara and her father Lee Seung Kyu on the grounds of false accusations and defamation. A representative stated, “Clara took everything out of context, cutting out what came before and after such events.”
Clara notified Polaris Entertainment of the cancellation of her contract back in September 2014 when she up her own agency, Koreana Clara. At that time, Polaris Entertainment had already filed a lawsuit against her for contract violation, claiming she was running activities under Koreana Clara while still under contract.
