Japanese Magazine Admits False Reporting on Lee Byung-hun

2006/09/06 | 102 views | Permalink | Source

A Japanese weekly magazine that reported groundless rumors about actor Lee Byung-hun has admitted its error.

Lee's agency, Phantom, said it has received an apology from the magazine for publishing false rumors about the actor on July 27, saying that Lee was dating a Japanese woman.

The agency warned of possible stern legal action against the magazine for publishing groundless rumors, but the case was closed after the magazine admitted its fault and apologized.

Lee's agent in charge of the actor's activities in Japan said he worked hard on the case to send a message of warning to the Japanese media, which have been underestimating Korean celebrities recently and spreading groundless rumors about them in Japan.

He also vowed strong action against similar incidents in the future because the recurrence of such incidents affects not only certain celebrities but all hallyu stars, and cited the need to build a systematic management system for Korean celebrities in Japan.
