However, Paradise Group has been involved in several scandals during its operation. The most serious controversy is the reports of 3 female interns at a subsidiary of Paradise Group being sexually harassed by their senior colleagues in 2017. This happened for a long time. It was known that a female colleague reported the case to chiefs at their departments and holding company Paradise Group and demanded a disciplinary action, but nothing proceeded to resolve the situation. Eventually, all 3 workers quit their jobs and left the company. The incident was then reported to the Ministry of Employment and Labor as well as the Police Department. The suspects were then summoned and investigated twice.

In addition, Paradise Group reportedly underwent a special tax investigation by the National Tax Department, in 2006 and 2011. The company’s high-end resort complex also experienced a water leak on the ceiling in less than a month of opening, causing guests to evacuate.
