Some time has passed since Yoon Eun Hye was accused of plagiarizing designs while on the Chinese fashion show “Goddess Fashion 2”. It was said that her designs were copied from numerous designers during this past fall by bringing articles of clothing that she stated were her own designs on the show. Since the plagiarism scandal, the actress has kept a low profile, up until recently.
On December 11th KST, Yoon Eun Hye participated in the promotional event for the fashion brand at a department store in Songgong-dong. The actress looked very melancholy as she stated, "I apologize for creating public criticism. From now on, I will work hard." Her mood seemed to brighten shortly after her apology, and she was seen in a much happier state afterwards. Yoon Eun Hye had originally planned on making a long speech for her public apology at the event, but the event’s brand asked her to simply make a short statement and a full 90 degree bow, due to the promotional nature of the event.
