It has been said that her contract for the said brand concluded in early March and was not renewed amid her relationship controversy with Ryu Jun Yeol. Some speculated that the reason for not renewing the contract was because her relationship with the actor overlapped with his long-term relationship with Lee Hyeri, which both parties denied.

It is also known that Soju’s brand models have been contracted for years.
