Actress Han Hye Jin was appalled when news broke out that she had once been an underwear model.
On January 30, the actress tweeted her frustration with the false info saying, “Why don’t you bother to get your facts straight before broadcasting information about others? I have never been an underwear model.”
She explained, “Those photos you aired are not of me wearing ‘underwear’. They were part of photo shoots for magazine spreads. I just couldn’t help but want to say something when I saw your report. I’ve found myself slipping into a state of disbelief. I guess today’s just one of those days…”
The news report that Han Hye Jin spoke out against was broadcast on January 29 by tvN that features photos of top underwear models, which included photos from Han Hye Jin’s magazine pictorials.
Netizens who saw the tweet commented, “Don’t they know any better? They should verify their facts before broadcasting that kind of information”, “You must have been really hurt by that false report. Stay strong”, “Just by one glance you can tell it’s not underwear. What do they mean by underwear model??”, “I think I can understand how you feel, Han Hye Jin” and “It must be hard for celebrities too.”
