Kang Ji Hwan “scandal” in the Philippines
Kang Ji Hwan is a famous Korean actor and he recently appeared in the hit Korean drama “Big Men”. Unfortunately, he got victimized by an overzealous fan from the Philippines.
On July 11th, the Filipina woman posted several photos of a Kang Ji Hwan and herself on her Facebook account. In the photos, Kang Ji Hwan is seen sleeping while the woman takes selfie photos.
She uploaded the photos with the caption: “…together sleep with Korean actor mr. Ji hwan kang”
It’s known that there are Koreans who visit the Philippines for sex tourism. And posting a photo of a sleeping Korean actor with the said caption would surely create a virtual “scandal”.
The Filipino woman is the wife of the tour guide of Kang Ji Hwan and company. The actor visited the Philippines for a photoshoot. He was supposed to return to Korea on the 13th, but because of what happened he immediately left the country on the night of July 11th. He arrived in Korea in the early morning of July 12th.
The Filipina issued an apology for her foolishness and deleted her Facebook account. She posted “…very sorry only edited pictures hope you can forgive me because his my idol sorry again.”
The photos are all over Korean SNS sites. There are mosaic photos on news portal sites too.
I’ve seen the uncensored photos and they are just selfie photos of the woman with Kang Ji Hwan sleeping in the background. Both of them are fully clothed. No nudity, no inappropriate acts whatsoever.
Wanna see the photos? One Korean news showed the uncensored photos as uploaded on Facebook. Or make a Daum image search of Kang Ji Hwan’s name in Korean: 강지환
Hopefully, this will will not scare away Korean stars from visiting the Philippines.
