“Are you willing to destroy your 17-year-old career? A quick decision must be made.”
“We have protected you for the past 17 years. It is now your turn to protect Airens (Lee Seung Gi’s fandom).”
Fan Sending Protest Truck Due to Lee Da In Family Scandal
The reason why the fan hugely protested Lee Seung Gi and Lee Da In relationship was because of Lee Da In family history of criminal record in 2016.
Lee Da In was born in a well-known family. Lee Da In parents are South Korean’s veteran actress, Kyeon Mi Ri and stepfather Lee Hong Heon. Her older sister is also a well-known Korean actress, Lee Yoo Bi (Pinocchio, Scholar who Walks the Night). While the family seems like another regular family of artists, the problem lies on the stepfather, Lee Hong Heon.

Lee Da In Parents Controversy
In 2009 and 2018, Lee Da In’s father Lee Hong Heon was charged and arrested for manipulating the stock prices for KOSDAQ.
Reports mentioned that the man used his wife’s name and status to recruit investors. He then manipulated the stock prices by upping the company’s shares cost. This action then resulted in massive revenues for Lee Heong Hoon and his investors. After Lee Heong Hoon and his investors reaped their profits, they sold all their company shares, causing a financial disaster for the rest of the company’s stockholders.
An anonymous source also surfaced following the report. The source states that their relatives and thousands of people had to suffer an irreplaceable loss due to the stock manipulation. Even though the relative’s investment was voluntary, but the stock manipulation caused them to go into bankruptcy.
The worst thing was, according to the online post, Lee Heong Hoon and Kyeon Mi Ri made no apology to the “victims”. Instead, both Lee Da In parents were reported to have “made themselves the victims and went on to file lawsuits against the actual victims.”
It’s because one of her fans is the victim of lee da in father fraud. They said 350.000 peoples is the victim and 2 trilliun KRW is the embezzlement. Many people suicade and the big house lee dain stay is the result of the fraud. So….yeah— Fyunhee (@fyunhee) May 29, 2021

Lee Da In family scandal resulted in various regrets and disappointments expressed towards Lee Da In, Lee Da In parents, and Lee Seung Gi.
Can Airens take a fucking step back ? Y’all are defending that Lee Da In girl like you know her personally. There’s no smoke without fire and the fact is she IS shady, her family IS shady and I just hope SG takes a step back and look at facts more.— Just Hope 🐾 (@AirenSG) May 26, 2021
“Oh my god there are a lot of victims. Please, I hope these types of people stop appearing on broadcasted programs.”
“He probably found it a sweet deal if he can rack up the wealth by serving a couple of years in jail. He’s out and living his best life now, damn.”
“The estimated losses suffered by the manipulation(s) is ₩26.0 billion KRW (about $23.3 million USD) [from the first manipulation] and between ₩2.00 trillion KRW (about $1.79 billion USD) to ₩4.00 trillion KRW (about $3.58 billion USD) [from the second manipulation]… I had no idea it was such a massive problem.”
“There are 350,000+ victims, but they have been able to remain actresses during this time? All while showing off their rooms and living rooms?”
“Seriously, they shouldn’t be allowed on television.”
“350,000+ victims!!! Holy crap.”
“Oh my gosh… Lee Seung Gi probably dated her knowing all of this. It really is disappointing. His good image is crumbling.”
“If there really are that many victims, Kyeon Mi Ri and Lee Da In should not be allowed on any broadcasts.”
