Actress Han Ye-seul announced that she would take legal action against rumormongers, who have been spreading rumors about her "private life" and leaving malicious comments online.
Law firm Bae, Kim & Lee, who represent Han, vowed to file a libel suit against the rumormongers.
"We will file a complaint against rumormongers, including reporter-turned-YouTuber Kim Yong-ho, who made false accusations and maliciously slandered Han Ye-seul," a legal representative said in a statement. "We will also sue all YouTubers and online users after securing evidence."
Han said that the groundless rumors and malicious comments have inflicted "unbearable pain" on her.
"The more I tell you the truth, the more unspeakable videos spread online. Articles keep coming out with provocative headlines. The false rumors surrounding my private life have inflicted unbearable pain on me, and so I made up my mind to respond to them," Han said in a statement.( Collapse )
