On May 20, Lee Cheol-woo addressed the accusations of him being involved in the Burning Sun scandal. The Lovely Runner actor, who found himself under scrutiny once again following the renewed spotlight on the scandal due to the BBC documentary, stated that he was not involved in the infamous chatroom. He further clarified that he was part of a chatroom for a 2016 JTBC variety show, Hit Maker, and the purpose of the chatroom was to simply discuss schedules and program-related information.
"I would like to again inform you that I was not a part of the chatroom. The chatroom that has implicated me in the scandal was for a 2016 JTBC variety show, Hit Maker. At the time, the chatroom was used to communicate our schedules and information regarding the program. Not only did we not write anything personal in the chatroom, but the chatroom was deleted after the variety show was canceled," Lee Cheol-woo's statement read.
The actor also threatened to take legal action, saying, "My family and I have been suffering from the misinformation for years. We ask that you stop the false speculation. We will respond to any further malicious comment with legal action."
