Lee Young Ae is pressing charges against a reporter for the spreading of false rumors.
According to sources from the prosecution on July 16, a reporter from internet news site “M” has been charged for spreading rumors last year on July 25 about actress Lee Young Ae’s husband Jung Ho Young.
The reporter, Mr. Han, claimed that Lee Young Ae and actress Han Chae Young were mother and daughter-in-law, and that Jung Ho Young hid his identity while dating actress Shim Eun Ha, among other things. However, these statements were subsequently determined false.
Outside of this case, Lee Young Ae has previously filed complaints to the police about the spreading of false rumors.
