The drama "Chimera" has suspended filming due to staff sexual harassment allegations.
Sources say, "It's true. The victim, who is a scripter, has dropped off the team and the perpetrator was let go. We are currently in control of the situation and we hope to resume filming as soon as everything is clear".
Production personnel A allegedly molested scripter B after a work dinner on the 24th last month. The production arranged a gathering where A apologized to B with key members of the staff present, but B took herself off the team after leaving a text message in the group chat. The production then held A responsible and fired him.
