Huge A-list actor Lee Byung-Hun is well-known for his acting, but also for his horrible personal life.

Several insiders reported the G.I. Joe's villain is nicknamed "sugar daddy" by his peers as he allegedly helped the careers of various top actresses such as Song Hye-Kyo or Yoon Eun-Hye in exchange for sex. He's rumored to have weird fetishes and to be a big sex addict.
In 2009, an ex-gymnast Kwon Mi-yeon filed a lawsuit again him for $100,000. She claimed he got her pregnant of a child she later aborted and promised to marry her if she dropped her career. She made end to her gymnast career for nothing as Lee Byung-Hun avoided her once she left Canada for South Korea.
Lee, who was filming the blockbuster drama Iris during that time, schemed with the CEO of Iris' production team, Jung Tae-Won, to escape from the scandal and keep his image clean (as well as saving the drama's ratings).
They used former baseball player Kang Byung Kyu as a scapegoat and claimed he convinced Kwon to file a lawsuit against him in order to get money from him. The public believed Lee's claims as Kang just went through a fraud scandal and was dating Kwon's friend. Kwon then lost the lawsuit and disappeared into thin air.
Everything could've went well for Lee Byung-Hun except Kang refused to keep his mouth shut and denied being the mastermind being the lawsuit. Pissed off by his stubborness, Lee Byung-Hun used his power and money to exile him from the industry.
And it worked as Kang Byung Kyu isn't invited anywhere now.
On September 2014, Lee Byung-Hun's past resurfaced when he filed lawsuit against two young women who tried to threaten. Indeed, the unidentified model and the Kpop idol Glam's Dahee blackmailed him with compromising pictures and videos of them together. They allegedly asked him for a billion won (~ $1,000,000). Refusing to pay them off, he sued them and they now risk a 5-Year sentence.

The news is shocking as Lee Byung-Hun got married to 12-years his junior actress Lee Min-Jung in 2012 and thus had had an affair.

Did anyone else know about this? What do you think?

is this all confirmed? if it is it's sad. however, bad behavior does not warrant bad behavior
@LinnyOk For a less serious example, take TVXQ. When JYJ formed SM had the power to make sure they didnt get on a single TV show, any advertising for years, and no public performances. They couldn't do anything in Korea at ALL because SM owns pretty much everything.
Everyone here is sooooo shocked and people who like him are trying to rationalize his actions or just say they are rumors, but.... Is it really that shocking? Rich male actor with ego and hormones uses women for sex and uses his money to make a corrupt government rule in his favor. Stuff like this ALWAYS happens not only in hallyu, but in South America, USA, Europe, everywhere! And one more question.... If he wasn't so tall, if he didn't have an amazing body, if he wasn't so handsome, would all these people still defend him? What if instead, it was a 60 year old rich, short, fat guy on set as a director or producer that casted women if they had sex with him and bribed officials to get him out of jail sentences? Everyone would be like EWWWW PUT HIM IN JAIL HOW WRONG HES DISGUSTING!! But since its a sexy guy thats an actor, its a different story. Am I right? People care about looks WAY too much.
@blackirishawk sorry but he's been doing this for so long and so many people have accused him...im not slandering him, please dont accuse me of ruining the community you love i thought i was starting a conversation
@blackirishawk actually the 2014 one is true because I was looking up on why everyone was bashing glam until I read the article from soompi talking about dahee is going to prison because of blackmail
