Korean actress Yoon Eun Hye’s official fancafe was forced to close after it was established a month ago.

The actress was previously a singer of idol group Baby V.O.X but moved on to acting and had her first big role in Princess Hours with Joo Ji Hoon. She went on to act in various dramas and films, most recently starring in drama Mirae’s Choice last year.

The independent agency that she started with her long-time manager, The House Company, revised its name to J Army Entertainment and reestablished a fancafe as an avenue for communication with her fans.

It was announced earlier this month that she was considering upcoming cross-border romance melodrama After Love, which is said to be courting Park Shi Hoo as its lead. Park Shi Hoo was involved in a high-profile sex scandal last year where he was accused of raping a female trainee but was eventually settled out-of-court.

Her fans protested against her involvement in the project and voiced their concern on the fancafe. Yoon Eun Hye then issued a warning there, which led to some believing that she was on bad terms with her fans.

In order to lessen the misunderstanding, her agency decided to shut down the site and shared, “(Yoon Eun Hye) posted the warning after a great deal of consideration as there have been people that have been consistently attacking and slandering (her) over the years.”

After Love is slated to finalise its cast in October and begin filming in November.
