Actor Kang Ha Neul is spreading the word that he is doing fine after an unfortunate hacking incident.
On March 11, Kang Ha Neul took to his Instagram account to share some news with his fans. He wrote a lengthy post, accompanied by a simple photo of an ice cube.
He wrote, “I woke up and am informing everyone that I am alive and well.”
He continued, “Ah, some people who are unaware might be thinking, ‘What is he talking about?’ A few moments ago, a knowledgeable hacker changed my password and so I thought long and hard and remembered my password. Perhaps that was their intent. Thank you to those who were alarmed and contacted me. I apologize to those of you who were shocked.”
이렇게 또 자다가 일어나서 그래도 살아있음을 알리게 되네요 ㅋㅋㅋ 아 모르는시는분들은 갑자기 뭐래니~ 하실수도 있을것같아, 좀전에 강한 내공의 해커분이 비밀번호바꿔서 저도 가물가물한 제 비밀번호를 다시한번 상기시켜주고자 해킹을 하셨는데요ㅎ 놀라서 연락주신분들 감사하고 보면서 놀라셨을분들 죄송합니다 어찌보면 제가 인스타를 잘안하면서 인스타 좀 자주하라는 말을 자주 듣게되는데요ㅎ 그 말을 잘 안들어서 혼나는 것 같기도 합니다 ㅋㅋㅋㅋ 생존신고 하라는 뜻같기도하고 그래도 이렇게 라도 생존신고를 올리게되네요 ㅎㅎ 다 뜻이겠죠 ㅎㅎㅎ 여러분 안녕히주무세요 많은 연락으로 알려주셔서 감사합니닷!!꾸벅 (–)(__)(–) ㅎ P.s- 해킹당하면서 팔로우수가 급격히 늘었는데요ㅎ 언팔로우 하며 정리하는것도 그렇고.. 대충 이상한 이름의 분들은 정리를 했는데 너무 많아서..ㅜㅜ 기왕 이리된건 운명이라 생각하고 친하게 지내요~~ㅋㅋ (참고로 다른 많은분들 한분한분 팔로우 못하고 지내는건 죄송합니다..ㅜ)
The actor showed optimism about the incident, writing, “I don’t use Instagram much, so a lot of people tell me to use it more often. I didn’t listen to them, and it feels like I am being punished for it now, haha. Or maybe it’s telling me to keep everyone updated, so here I am, notifying you all that I am well. I guess there’s a meaning to all of this.”
“Everyone, have a good night. Thank you for everyone who contacted me! P.S. I noticed that I’m following a lot of people after I got hacked. It’s a bit too much to go through and organize all of them. I did go through and get rid of a few people who had peculiar names, but there were too many. I’ll think of this as fate, and let’s get along well~ (Also, sorry that I can’t follow back each and every one of you),” he concluded.
Following this, a representative from his agency also wrote, “It is true that Kang Ha Neul was hacked and we confirmed that he uploaded a statement regarding this directly. He found out about the hacking through a colleague of his. We are not sure about the specific contents of that message. We do not have plans to pursue further actions regarding the hacking. Kang Ha Neul wants to continue to communicate more closely with his fans following this incident. He will work hard to show a good side to his fans.”
