Kim Min Gwi Responds To Ex-Girlfriend’s Allegations That He Cheated On Her And Violated Quarantine Restrictions
Actor Kim Min Gwi, who is currently appearing in the JTBC drama “Nevertheless,” has released a statement in response to a post uploaded online by someone claiming to be his ex-girlfriend.
On July 24, someone shared a post online titled “I will be revealing the truth behind a male actor in the drama [‘Nevertheless’].” Although the poster only mentioned the drama by its initials, it was discovered that the post was referring to Kim Min Gwi.
The poster (hereafter known as “A”) claimed that she was the ex-girlfriend of Kim Min Gwi and that they had dated for six years. She alleged that while they were dating, he had gone to nightclubs, had one-night stands, and cheated on her with multiple other women. In addition, “A” said that Kim Min Gwi had once been classified as a close contact of a COVID-19 case, meaning that he had to remain in self-quarantine, but he had violated the quarantine restrictions to cheat on her again. She also said that he had not told her that he had been a close contact of a COVID-19 case at first.
“A” also claimed that when Kim Min Gwi was caught cheating, he had asked her to lie for him and say that she was his ex-girlfriend because his modeling contacts all thought of the other woman as his current girlfriend. She also said that after she had broken up with Kim Min Gwi, she had contacted the other woman he had cheated on her with, and he had responded by swearing at her and asking if she intended to mooch off him now that he was finding success.
“A” wrote, “The person who was mooching for the past six years was you. When I asked you what would happen if people found out about your bad deeds, you replied coolly that it was your personal life and you wouldn’t be scared to go to work as an actor afterward, so I could do whatever I wanted. I wonder if the people who read this will think the same as you and still want you to appear on TV. I’m curious about that too. I want you to be a little more aware of what other people think, self-reflect on your actions, and regret even a little about what you did to me. Don’t you dare contact me about taking down this post.”
As evidence of her claims, “A” shared several photos she had taken with Kim Min Gwi along with records of their text messages.
On July 26, Kim Min Gwi’s agency, Big Picture Entertainment, released the following statement:
First, we apologize for causing concern with the negative news surrounding our artist, Kim Min Gwi. We ask for your understanding regarding the lateness of this statement, as we had to check the facts first.
Kim Min Gwi acknowledges that he has done wrong in the parts regarding his personal life. He feels sincerely apologetic toward the other person whom he hurt with his immature actions and judgments and he is in deep self-reflection. He also apologizes for causing public concern with this issue.
It is not true that Kim Min Gwi violated self-quarantine restrictions regarding COVID-19. On May 22, he was informed that he was a close contact and he went into self-quarantine at his home. During his self-quarantine, he felt signs of symptoms and got tested and received a positive result. He went to receive treatment and is currently fully recovered.
Once again, we apologize for causing concern.
