Actor Lee Beom Soo has been accused of power abuse against the students he teaches. Regarding this, his agency has issued a response.
Recently, in an online forum, a netizen A, who introduced himself as a student at the Department of Performing Arts at Shinhan University, posted an article and claimed that he/she was beaten by Lee Beom Soo, the dean of the department. The netizen also claimed that Lee Beom Soo discriminated against the students by dividing rich students into class A and poor students into class B. The teaching assistant also heard abuse from Lee Beom Soo.
Due to this situation, half of the first-year students took a leave of absence and dropped out, and they reported it to the school, but the report was leaked to Lee Beom Soo.
On the 7th of December, Big Punch Entertainment, Lee Beom Soo’s agency, told JTBC’s Enter News Team, “Lee Beom Soo has been teaching for a long time, and this is actor’s personal work. We don’t know much about it.“
Since 2014, Lee Beom Soo has been teaching and serving as the dean of the Department of Performing Arts at Shinhan University.
