6-7 years ago, Yoo Yeon Seok lived in an officetel, not an apartment, as the netizen alleges. Also, the actor never took part in riding (bicycles) with his acquaintances, and logistically speaking, the apartment is next to a large intersection, so it isn’t a place where a party of people can ride their bicycles.
