On December 13, Kim Min Suk expressed his anger via Instagram, responding to circulating rumors claiming that the male celebrity in the video masturbating was him. The actor strongly emphasized that he is not the one in the video.
His label, Woollim Entertainment, also spoke up and announced that they plan to take legal actions against the malicious rumors.
Woollim Entertainment stated,
"Hello, This is Woollim Entertainment. We announce that the recent malicious rumors creating controversies have nothing to do with our artist Kim Min Suk.

Please continue to give him your unchanging support and encouragement. Thank you."
