On November 9, all posts on Kang Ye Won's Instagram account were deleted, and a new post of a man with a mask was shared with the caption, "You Have Been Hacked @Instagram I'll back the account, I just wanted to say to instagram that pages with blue tike are not save. [sic]"
On the bio, the hacker also wrote, "Hacked by Persian Hacker. Low security."
The hacker has also unfollowed all users that the actress was originally following, and started following one account @Instagram.
Currently, Kang Ye Won's agency is looking into the situation.
