However, in this case he is presented as the victim, as it was revealed recently that actor Lee Byung-hun had been blackmailed by two young women: an unknown model — dubbed “B” by the media, but whose name has now been revealed as Lee Ji-yeon – and a rookie singer, who was later revealed to be BTS labelmate Glam‘s Da-hee.
Lee Byung-hun has always had something of a reputation when it comes to his love life, though this is not a universally accepted one; many consider him somewhat of a creep, while others prefer to give him the benefit of the doubt
Hallyu star Lee Min Ho is preparing to meet with his fans after wrapping up filming for his latest movie “Gangnam Blues.” Fans in China are already showing enthusiasm over news of the actor’s upcoming fan meeting tour.

The actor will kick off his global tour “Re:Lee Min Ho” which is short for “Reboot Lee Min Ho,” this coming October 4 in Beijing.

But he has also unfortunately used his intelligence to commit horrible crimes, as he is a serial killer. It"s the baddest role Park Hae Jin has played.
In his last drama, "Doctor Stranger," Park Hae Jin played a not-so-nice competitive doctor. In "You Who Came From The Stars" he was slated to play the villain
