On August 21, actress Kim Seo Hyung had harsh words to vent her frustration after recently becoming involved in false marriage rumors.
Previously, various media outlets reported that actress Kim Seo Hyung would be getting married to actor Lee Min Woo in October. The rumor allegedly began due to changes made on a Wikipedia page, stating that Kim Seo Hyung and Lee Min Woo's wedding would take place on October 6. Both Kim Seo Hyun and Lee Min Woo's labels promptly denied the rumors afterward, stating, "There's no way these rumors are true."
Sharing a screen capture of one of her marriage articles, Kim Seo Hyung wrote on her Instagram:
"Those around me keep telling me to just forget about it, that it's already done, scratching it will only turn it into crumbs. However, because this is something that happened to me, I can't just let it go. I was so baffled about marriage rumors with someone I've never even met before, so I decided to look into it. It turns out, someone changed a Wikipedia page with content to read that I would be marrying Lee Min Woo, and this page was tossed on from the government team to the media team. We denied the rumors and said I've never met this person, but there were still news articles deeming it as a 'Happening'. But nobody knew anything about this until the news articles came up, so how is it a 'Happening'? If there weren't any news articles in the first place, no one would have known. I heard that anyone can edit a Wikipedia page, so who changed my and Lee Min Woo's pages, and for what purpose? I just don't understand why such information became alerted to the government team, or how it's possible that it like this is even allowed to be reported as news. If people were looking to make issues, am I really an actress worthy of a hot issue? Well now, if anyone ever needs issue-makers in this industry, all they have to do is edit Wikipedia pages. Sure, there are tons of false rumors in this industry, but this seems even lower than that. Everyone tells me to just laugh it off, but I'm not laughing? There are many thoughts in my head tonight."
긁어부스럼만 될 거라고, 주변에선 이미 지나간 일이니 잊어버리라고 하네요. 근데 전 제 일이라 그런지 그냥 지나가기가 힘듭니다. 만난 적도 없는 분과 난 결혼설이 너무 황당해서 이리저리 알아봤어요. 확인해보니, 누군가 저와 이민우씨가 결혼한다는 내용으로 위키백과를 수정했고, 이 내용이 정치팀을 통해 연예팀으로 토스됐다고 합니다. 사실이 아니라고, 만난 적도 없는 분이라고 말씀드렸는데, '해프닝'이라는 제목으로 기사가 났더라고요. 해프닝이라고 하기엔, 기사 나가기 전에 아무도 모르지 않았나요? 기사만 안 났으면 아무도 몰랐을 일 같은데... 위키백과는 아무나 수정할 수 있다던데, 누가, 어떤 의도로 일면식도 없는 저와 이민우씨 정보를 수정했을까요? 이 내용이 정치부로 제보됐다는 것도, 이런 내용이 기사화될 수 있다는 것도 다 이해가 안 됩니다. 어떤 의도를 가지고 만든 이슈라기엔, 제가 그렇게 핫한 배우였나요? 이젠 누구든 연예계 이슈가 필요할 때마다 위키백과만 수정하면 되겠어요. 찌라시가 난무하는 연예계라지만, 이건 그보다도 심한 것 같아요. 다들 웃어넘기라고 하는데, 전 웃음이 안 나는데 어쩌죠? 여러 생각이 드는 밤입니다.
