Lee Young-ae denies strange rumorActress Han Chae-young is strongly denying rumors that leading actress Lee Young-ae is her mother-in-law.
The unusual gossip that Lee’s husband was secretly the father of Han’s husband whipped up quickly online yesterday.
But it did not take long for Lee’s lawyers to pounce on the rumors. “Many netizens have defamed the dignity of Lee’s family, posting false information online as if it is the truth,” said the lawyer for the law firm Da Dam.
The firm filed complaints with the Yongsan district police against some of the netizens and online bloggers who spread the reports. “Keeping quiet can result in defamation, so we decided to sue in order to correct the situation,” said the representative.
Han’s agency has also reportedly said that Han is perplexed by the rumors as her husband is not a celebrity and his information is not widely known by the public.
