Being Listed on Celebrity Prostitution, Lee Min-ji Was Furious


In March 2016, a rumor of an unofficial list of ‘celebrity prostitution list’ had been spreading through SNS and forum. The name Lee Min Ji was included on it, hence people thinking that it was either the “Reply 1988” actress Lee Min Ji or Miss Korea Lee Min Ji.

The actress herself has spoken up about the rumor that her name is included in the celebrity sponsorship list.

On March 24, Lee Min Ji posted on her Twitter, “I know my name is very common but…why. Oh my goodness.

She continued, “I am very satisfied with my face and all things about myself. Honestly, don’t I look completely unrelated to sponsorship news? Wait, but why isn’t anyone revealing names of the men?”

Lee Min Ji added, “It’s also not Miss Korea Lee Min Ji.”.
