Lee Byung Hun was recently swept up in controversy when a report released a video showing the actor being affectionate with another woman in the presence of his wife.
A Hong Kong media source reported that the event took place when Lee Byung Hun and his wife Lee Min Jung were enjoying the company of their friends at a bar. Lee Byung Hun was in Hong Kong for the 2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA), where he was a presenter for an award.
The released footage shows Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung sitting next to a woman while Lee Byung Hun hugs the lady and kisses her on the cheek. Upon release of the video, the public took to online communities and social media sites to rapidly share what has become known as the “Skinship” controversy.
In response to this report, a representative from Lee Byung Hun’s agency BH Entertainment explained, “She [The lady] is currently a business woman who has known the actor for 20 years. She’s an old friend who is also best friends with Lee Min Jung. We think that their closeness may have lead to a misunderstanding.”
