Director Lee Hae Young denies #MeToo accusation against him, comes out as gay

Movie director Lee Hae Young denied the sexual harassment accusation against him.

He wrote, 

This is movie director Lee Hae Young. I saw the recent post directed toward me, and would like to say that the post is completely false.
I am a sexual minority. The poster has been continuously threatening me since two years ago by using my sexual identity and popularity as a weapon. After the poster broke up with a friend of mine, they have been threatening not just me, but also my friends, by using threats and lies. Now the harm has gone past my personal life to my public name.
My sexual identiy has been revealed without my consent, through force. I will not be just watching as my character is defamed while lies are spread. To protect my rights and my character, I will be taking a strong legal action with the proof I have of the threats and mental anguish I have received until now.
I ask for the media to stop reporting unconfirmed things, and I will take all future actions through a law firm.

Previously, the director was accused of sexually harassing someone of the same gender. The poster had claimed they had gone on a vacation to Gangwon-do with a director 'A', Lee Hae Young (who was 'A's ex), and Lee Hae Young's friend 'C', and had gotten sexually harassed by Lee Hae Young on that vacation. The original post has currently been deleted, but screenshots can be found here.
