Actor denies ties to Burning Sun
“This was a picture taken upon [Lin Samo’s] request as a fan,” Ji’s management agency Glorious Entertainment said in a statement. “There is absolutely no relationship between [Lin Samo] and the actor.”
SBS also clarified Sunday that the picture was included in the broadcast to make the point that Lin was an individual who enjoyed “showing off her acquaintance with Korean celebrities,” and that it wasn’t used to imply Ji’s connection to the scandal, adding that it did not find any proof of Ji’s involvement in the ongoing scandal.
