The news cycle went fast with this one as mere 1-2 days went by before it was all reportedly cleared up. Last week rookie actor Lee Sin Young, who plays the handsome North Korean army soldier in Crash Landing on You, was accused in a SNS post by an anonymous poster of being a high school iljin (delinquent) and bully back in his formative days. The post claimed he was a well-known iljin in their high school area and had once cursed out and then organized a group beat up of another kid. Lee Sin Young’s agency denied the claim and later the poster recanted and said he made a mistake and Lee Sin Young was not the iljin. K-netizens are split, some things it was a smear and others think Lee Sin Young’s agency must’ve silenced (paid off) the poster. Who knows but it’s certainly not great for his career launch either way – if true then he’s a terrible kid during his school years and if false then he’s got to overcome this bad publicity. Too bad there is no way to know for sure.
