Hyun Bin‘s agency has responded to the ridiculous rumor that Son Ye Jin is divorcing him because he gambled away his life savings.
A YouTube channel posted a shorts video claiming that Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin were divorcing in April.
Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin are divorcing in April.
Hyun Bin lost ₩3.00 billion KRW (about $2.29 million USD) through stock investments and is also shouldering a lot of gambling debt. Son Ye Jin kept putting up with it but she couldn’t anymore and wanted to divorce.
However, the short “claimed” that the issue was discussed on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon… and then promptly showed a clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live! instead.
This is Jimmy Kimmel.
The video also claimed that Jimmy Kimmel talked about the issue, saying that he gambled away a lot of money and it doesn’t matter that he is handsome, because he is crazy for gambling so much. But even a viewer who does not understand Korean or English will recognize that Jimmy Kimmel is not talking about Hyun Bin on his show. In addition, the YouTube channel in question consistently puts out shorts, starting false rumors about various celebrities.
Hyun Bin’s agency VAST Entertainment put out a statement condemning the video.
The video is ridiculous and not true at all.
It’s not that we didn’t know about it because we have been continuously monitoring for fake news. Since it is not true, we were discussing internally how to deal with this. We were preparing to respond that it wasn’t true.
We are taking action with the site, reporting the video and requesting it to be taken down, and we will continue to monitor the situation and take further action if necessary.
