Previously, Lee Jin Ho uploaded a video where he talked about the incident involving Ahn Jae Hyun‘s alleged infidelity. In the video, Lee Jin Ho mentioned a legal document that had been signed by an unknown individual. This individual made claims that Ahn Jae Hyun had engaged in infidelity with another actress during a former outing with his drama cast mates. The photo capture that was shown in Lee Jin Ho’s video began to make its way around online in the middle of Goo Hye Sun and Ahn Jae Hyun’s ongoing divorce.

The problem arose when Goo Hye Sun’s side stepped forward to state that they were in possession of the said document and YouTuber Lee Jin Ho was using it to defame Goo Hye Sun’s character. While the content of the document matched the original, Lee Jin Ho’s source could not be found. As a result, Goo Hye Sun chose to pursue legal action in an effort to prove his claims as false.
