A Korean Male Actor in His 40s Arrested for Drug Use
On September 10, Korean media reported that a Korean actor had been arrested for drug use. This forty-something actor is reportedly famous for supporting roles in dramas and commercial films.
According to the report, the Seoul Gangnam Police received a report on the same day that a man who seemed to be intoxicated is running around in the area. Upon receiving the information, the police immediately dispatched a unit to the scene and found the person in reference.
The police then confirmed that the actor spoke with slurred speech and an unstable gait. Therefore, they decided to conduct a liver drug test, which resulted in positive for narcotics.
As a result, Seoul Gangnam Police arrested the actor for violating the Narcotics Control Act with his drug usage on the same day at 2 PM KST. Currently, the police are checking the contents of dozens of pills they raided at the actor’s house.
Is It REALLY Lee Moo Saeng from “The World of the Married”?
Further in the report, Channel A mentioned that the actor arrested for drug use debuted in 2006 drama as a supporting actor. Since then, he has appeared as the main and supporting roles in several movies and dramas. Yet, the media mentioned nothing about his name or initials.
Still, with these hints, Korean netizens began speculating that the actor was Lee Moo Saeng of “Thirty Nine” and “The World of the Married”. After all, he fits all the descriptions: born in 1980 (40s), debuted in 2006 in “See You After School” movie, with a successful career with prominent dramas and Netflix series. Not to mention he will be joining an upcoming drama with Ju Ji Hoon and Han Hyo Joo, “Dominant Species”.
However, that is merely FALSE ACCUSATION.
Immediately after the rumor circulated on the internet, Lee Moo Saeng’s Alien Company agency released an official statement. They strongly clarified that the speculations were NOT true.
Lee Moo Saeng is NOT the actor arrested for drug use. And he does NOT have any relation to the case at all.
