Earlier today, it was reported that a famous actor in his 30s who was also an idol turned himself in for scamming victims out of ₩6.00 million KRW (about $4,580 USD).

There are reports that the suspect is a former FTISLAND member.

The former FTISLAND member uploaded an Instagram post denying that he was the idol who committed the crimes.

It isn’t me…! No need to worry.

Song Seung Hyun captioned the post emphasizing it wasn’t him.

I am currently filming and doing well…

Song Seung Hyun made his debut with FTISLAND in 2009 and left the group in 2019 to pursue acting.

It seems the actor had uploaded the posts due to the reports stating that the suspect was originally an FTISLAND member.

According to reports, the suspect first started working after seeing an advertisement for a high-paying part-time job.

Once the actor realized he had been working in part of a voice-phishing operation, he turned himself into the police.

It has been revealed that the victim had recovered his money. The victim had been scammed three times prior, and the police were able to arrest three other suspects in connection to the scams.

FTISLAND is an idol rock band that consists of Lee Hongki, Minhwan, and Lee Jaejin. The group made its debut in 2009 and most recently held its first live concert in three years this past May.
