Actress Han Ye Seul has been facing criticism ever since rumors that her new boyfriend used to work in a host bar spread online. Han Ye Seul has since commented that she met her boyfriend at a karaoke bar and has been open about her love for him. Netizens recently began a petition regarding her boyfriend, asking for an investigation to be opened.
Concerned fans have been leaving comments on her Instagram, to which Han Ye Seul personally addressed them belatedly on June 4, 2021.
Personally, as a true fan, I feel like this is a pity… however, I think that your words don’t match up as ultimately if you feel that there is no such thing as high or low jobs, then you should have revealed it from the beginning.. Looking at the comments here, many are saying that you’re easygoing, but I hope they don’t say such senseless words. Right now, the people involved are being very courageous in their love so they are revealing it while (being willing) to endure what they must. Lastly, for you two’s sake, I hope that it isn’t true about (the sayings) that there are victims in this.
As for the victims the fan was referring to, previously, it was reported by Dispatch that Han Ye Seul’s boyfriend had entertained married women.
Han Ye Seul calmly replied as such.
Is there a need for me to have explained and reported every detail of my personal life? When I first uploaded the (dating) news on Instagram, I’ve already made things public. I didn’t know that it was my responsibility to report on my boyfriend’s personal details as well.

She also replied to another comment that was unable to understand her decisions.
I cannot understand this… You are someone with capabilities that can sufficiently meet a better person… I really don’t get it. I have been waiting for the day where unnie would soar as an actress once again… Of course, as I am a regular person, I know that whatever I do, unnie will be eating better and living better. So it’s kind of hilarious for me to be commenting but I just don’t get it.
What kind of person is a sufficiently better person? What you see on the outside isn’t everything. And in love, terms and conditions have no meaning. The best kind of love is someone that makes me the happiest.
