The person who started the rumor about Lee Seung Gi having a secret child has been identified, according to a report by Star News on June 23.
The person, referred to as “A,” is an employee at a major Korean mobile carrier, only referred to in reports as “L.” It all started on June 21 and 22 when “A” wrote the rumors about Lee Seung Gi in a group chat at work.
The woman whose picture had been released as the supposed mother of Lee Seung Gi’s child was an employee working in a different department of the same company. Like Lee Seung Gi, the woman has also filed a complaint with the police against “A.”
Lee Seung Gi’s agency, Hook Entertainment, previously stated that they would be taking strict legal measures with no leniency against all those that spread the rumor.
