On October 6, two of the biggest and most beloved Korean couples were involved in unfounded rumors that allege a husband cheated on his wife. Since the news came out back to back, this got fans wondering how did such rumors begin?
Lets talk about it.
Recently, one magazine spread the rumors that a talented top star was having affairs with a professional female golfer. The report does not name names and refers to the said celebrity as ‘A’ but the report said the husband who cheated on his wife are multi-talented. The report alleges the said cheater is a talented actor and singer. The report also refers to the celebrity as a ‘top star.’
Soon netizens began to speculate on who it could be and Jo Jung Suk and Rain’s names came up. Both stars are known for being good singers and actors as well, they’re also top stars.
While the situation didn’t seem too critical at first, the rumors began to spread like wildfire causing a huge wave of allegations against the said actors which then prompted a response from both sides with promises of strict legal action.
Jo Jung Suk’s agency firmly denied the rumors and promised strict legal action. They stated, “All of the outrageous nonsense contents are clearly false. It is just absurd that the false rumors; that surprised and baffled the company, the actor and the people related to them; are being spread as if they were true.”
Rain’s agency also said, “it is groundless false information,” and while initially, they didn’t think the ridiculous rumors deserved a response, they spread so fast and they felt the need to protect not only their artist but also their family members who were being slandered online. They promised strict legal action without any leniency for those who spread such information.
