Lee Byung Hun And Han Hyo Joo’s Agency Releases Statement Denying Connection To Gathering At Burning Sun
On May 5, a high-ranking source from BH Entertainment stated, “It is false that Lee Byung Hun, Han Hyo Joo, and other actors at the agency went to a dinner gathering for a cosmetics brand at Burning Sun. Although they are models for the brand, they have no connection to the event described by ‘Unanswered Questions.'”
Below is a full translation of the official statement from the agency:
This is BH Entertainment.
We would like to relay that Han Hyo Joo, who works as a model for JMsolution, did not attend the event mentioned in the May 4 broadcast of SBS’s “Unanswered Questions.”
Han Hyo Joo is simply a model for JMsolution. She did not participate in the event and has not once stepped foot in Burning Sun. In addition, we maintain that none of her fellow actors in the agency attended the event.
We will pursue strong legal action against all posts and comments on social media that damage our actors’ reputations by spreading these falsehoods.
This comes after the May 4 episode of SBS’s “Unanswered Questions,” in which one source alleged that a cosmetics brand sponsoring Burning Sun held a dinner gathering at the club and reserved around 20 VIP tables.
The source claimed that during the event, “An actress in her 30s, ‘A,’ hit people who were greeting her with a light stick. Those who were assaulted were in their 40s and 50s.” The actress’s eyes were said to be bloodshot, suggesting drug use.
