Recently, a video said to be Lee Si Young‘s sex tape was 'leaked' and spread online.

It was claimed that the video in question was that of Lee Si Young arose because of the striking similarities between the woman in the video and the actress.

Unidentified people claiming that the video was of Lee Si Young during intercourse only added fuel to the fire, reports Koreaboo.

One person stated, “Actress Lee Si Young’s personal video was discovered and the police are looking into the matter. The video was filmed by her agency. Lee Si Young was made aware of the fact and attempted to commit suicide but has now recovered and is in no immediate danger.”

MBC‘sSection TV followed the case closely and investigated whether the video was really of the actress.

After much comparison, they were able to discover one key difference between the two women despite their striking similarities. The woman in the video has a birth mark above her breast which Lee Si Young does not possess.

The legal representative of Lee Si Young stated, “This is the most shameful thing [that can] happen for a woman. It makes it worse that although it was untrue, the existence of her sex video became an established fact. She received a wound that can never heal. According to the law, the person who is responsible for the rumor can be put to prison for up to 7 years or charged with 50,000,000 Won in fines”.

J.Wide Company reported on July 1, "We submitted a complaint against the initial circulator of the rumor today to the Seoul Central Prosecutor's Office.  She's already inflicted with hurt that is hard to wash off because she is being viewed as if she had been involved in something illegal due to the threatening statement of the existence of a sex video as if it were fact, which is the easiest mark of degradation to make on women."

Lee is currently acting in the OCN drama series “My Beautiful Bride.” She achieved her career breakthrough in the 2009 TV drama “Boys Over Flowers.”
