A Shameful Tale: Lee Byung-Hun’s Blackmail Written by Andy On October 7, 2014

Blackmailing celebrities: even idols do it.

At the end of August, actor Lee Byung-hun (44) immediately turned to law enforcement officials to report a blackmail attempt. The culprits: GLAM’s Dahee(20) and model Lee Ji-yeon (25). According to reports, the women claimed to have a compromising video of the actor that would be shared unless the actor paid the ladies a sum of money (approximately $5 million).
