Yoon Eun Hye seems to have decided not to attend the 20th Busan International Film Festival (BIFF). Fans have been wondering why…?

“Red Eye,” the short film that Yoon Eun Hye directed, was invited to the film festival and the actress was supposed to attend but then JARMY Entertainment, the actress’ agency said that they were supposed to go but they decided not to anymore due to the current situation.

Recent plagiarism controversy has been hounding Yoon Eun Hye when she launched her fashion designs that another Korean designed Yoon Choon Ho called her out. He claims that Yoon Eun Hye has ripped off his designs and even posted a photo of his design and her design on social media, leaving the scrutinisation to the netizens.

However, Yoon Eun Hye responded that she didn’t copy his designs and he was just using her name for self-promotion. She also mentioned that the frill location and the shape are the current trend right now. Shin Jan Kyung of the Council of Fashion Designers of Korea also released a statement regarding this issue, “Taking a designer’s work, work that can also be seen as the designer’s property, is unspeakable. I heard the outfit mentioned in the accusations is one Yoon Eun Hye received from Yoon Choon Ho via sponsorship. It appears to be plagiarism,” she said as per Soompi.

Yoon Eun Hye was quick to deny the allegations surrounding this plagiarism issue. And it also looks like that she is trying to settle things, which is why she couldn’t attend this year’s Busan International Film Festival. The actress has shown ambition in directing and also carries a degree in film production. “The Knitting” was her first directorial debut in 2012.
