Chef Lee Chan Ho of 'Please Take Care of My Refrigerator' is accused of cheating on his wife, entertainer Kim Sae Rom.
A video titled 'Lee Chan Ho's Jeju Island Video' has quickly spread across the web, and it's caused a bit of drama for the married couple. The video, reportedly taken during the '2016 Jeju Food and Wine Festival', captures a man assumed to be Lee Chan Ho cuddling with a woman, who is sitting on his lap. He constantly grabs her waist and even pulls her closer to him. Ultimately, this video led to suspicions of an affair, but Lee Chan Ho is claiming the woman is only a friend.
Lee Chan Ho's label also responded to the rumor, stating, "The video is from an after party of a festival. They are captured while hanging out with friends. The beginning and end are edited out, which is creating the misunderstanding. However, it is not an affair. The woman in the clip is just a friend. It is true that he acted without caution, but it is not true that there are conflicts in his marriage with Kim Sae Rom. The two are happily together."
In addition, a representative of Kim Sae Rom's label informed the public that she was already aware of the video. The rep said, "Kim Sae Rom is aware of the recent video of chef Lee Chan Ho, and she also knows that the rumors are not true. The woman in the clip is Lee Chan Ho's long known friend, and Kim Sae Rom also knows her. Kim Sae Rom did not show much reaction to the situation. She only stated that she was aware of it."
Kim Sae Rom also took to Instagram, posting, "I'd like to apologize as someone in the public eye. Chef Lee Chan Oh and I are doing fine. Thank you for your interest and concern."
Kim Sae Rom and Lee Chan Ho got married last September after 4 months of dating.
