South Korean celebrity Han Ye Seul (한예슬) has found herself facing a slew of controversies right after revealing that she’s currently dating a theatre actor known as Ryu Sung Jae (류성재).
Things began turning sour when word got out that the guy, who is ten years younger than the actress, used to be a male escort. Ye Seul quickly refuted the claims, calling it a “Work of fiction” and openly defended her BF.
Just yesterday (Wednesday, 2nd June), Dispatch fanned the rumours again by spilling some more tea about his alleged profession prior to his relationship with the “Spy Myung Wol” star. “It’s her free will to start dating publicly but she has to understand there are consequences. She won’t be completely free from her boyfriend’s victims,” the media outlet stated.
Dispatch then claimed that they have received numerous tips on her boyfriend; including how the couple first met, his past experiences, and testimonials from “victims” of his past actions. It is said that Ye Seul and Sung Jae previously met at an unlicensed karaoke bar in Chengdamdong, Seoul. Then Dispatch introduced insiders “B” and “C” who spilled some tea about Ryu Sung Jae’s past as a male escort.
“He was more of a ‘jibae’ (escort) than a host. These escorts aim to receive continued sponsorship from a client in return,” insider “B” claimed. Informant “C” chimed in, “He received financial support from many married women and divorced singles -especially married woman on multiple occasions. He left the place in September as he started dating Han Ye Seul.”
Another individual dished that the celeb tried to use her influence to get Sung Jae to launch his career as an actor. “There was a dispute with her label while trying to do so. I don’t mind her trying to build a new career for him but she can’t hide his past forever. His victims are still out there,” the anonymous informant said.
After the allegations came to light, Ryu Sung Jae has reportedly set his social media accounts to private mode. Dispatch further claimed that he has been trying to erase his past by unfollowing his former colleagues and acquaintances from the entertainment establishments he previously worked at.
Ye Seul’s agency High Entertainment responded to the rumours by writing, “After looking into it, the contents from the article are not true. We ask you to refrain from spreading speculation about their personal lives.” The celeb herself took to her IG to address the ongoing situation in person.
The lengthy caption reads:
“This is Ye Seul. You were all probably worried due to the various claims. I apologise for talking to you so late because I had a filming today. I wanted to personally share what many people are worried about or are curious about…I wanted to tell everyone with my own words.
The reason I don’t want to hide anything and want to say everything with my own lips is because I want to receive your blessings. I’m a bit sad that the photo I uploaded on Instagram is being used differently from my intention. But since this is what I started, I want to tell you in a Ye Seul-like manner.
First, I’ll address the rumours involving my boyfriend who I am happily dating right now. He was a theatre actor and he did work at a karaoke bar once. Many people may think that karaoke and a host bar are the same thing, but I believe that a karaoke bar is a much more open area.
I have a lot of exciting and fun energy so I received much love but I wasn’t given many chances to do things I liked…so I went to places that I liked and did the things I enjoyed and I didn’t want to hide them. A few years ago, I met my current boyfriend after going to a place with an acquaintance. We began seeing each other since last September.
Last September, my boyfriend quit working as a host. There is no high or low when it comes to one’s occupation, in my honest opinion. And I wanted to be cherished as a woman and spent more time focusing on my feelings rather than (focusing on) my boyfriend’s background. That’s only about my boyfriend’s background and how we met.
Thereafter, I talked with my boyfriend about the alleged victims that were reported in the articles. After a long talk, I confirmed that those allegations are not true. I want to believe in my boyfriend’s words rather than the rumours of things that I didn’t see. I want to believe in my boyfriend who has been honest with me, even in his difficulties.
Also, about the rumours saying that I gave a Lamborghini to my boyfriend, I had really contemplated if I should give my new car to him;;; The car was a gift to myself. You will be able to see me drive the car everywhere ♡
My boyfriend doesn’t have a car to travel in, so I have shared the key to my other car since I’m more financially well-off. And to the people who have kept on saying that I was involved in the incident, I want the police and prosecutors to reveal the truth.
I can’t share everything about my private life… I’m telling you that all the content above is true, so don’t worry ♡ I can’t be certain about how long I will be happy with my current boyfriend but I’m living everyday being thankful for the present.
Also, lastly, I was bitter and angry, so I had intended to take legal action. Instead, I decided to donate the money that I had initially planned to file a legal complaint, thanks to the guidance of the people around me. That cost will be donated for a better opportunity. Even if you slander me saying I’m trying to clean my image, I can’t miss out on all the good chances to repay the love I received just because I’m scared of the fingers that point at me.
I’d like to express my gratitude to my acquaintances for their kind words, and for their concern and guidance. I’ll work harder on my shortcomings. From tomorrow, I’ll greet you again as a bright Ye Seul.
P.S.: I will start blocking and will sue anyone who spreads false information about me and my boyfriend or leaves malicious comments! Trust me and keep an eye on me ♡ “
