Scenes from the upcoming movie “For the Emperor” were illegally distributed on various online communities.
Particularly, Lee Min Ki and Lee Tae Im‘s bed scene were edited out and leaked, but the situation is already contained according to the producers of the movie.
In a statement made with TenAsia, the production company said, “A netizen who was able to see the movie illegally edited the parts where Lee Tae Im appears and distributed it.”
This video of the actress is said to show her in a bed scene with co-actor Lee Min Ki in the movie, reports a Soompi article.
In another interview with OSEN, a representative from the production of the movie said, “We confirmed that there is a video circulating yesterday. We have acted on deleting the videos for the most part and currently, we understand that it isn’t being distributed anymore.”
The representative added that no charges were made towards the person who distributed the clips illegally but if ever that person releases more clips from the movie, then they would make further actions.
According to a report on Ohkpop, Lee Min-ki once spoke about the highly critical bed scene which he had to perform.
Lee Min-ki said, “I was worried about how to express the scene more than being pressured by it. It might seem rough but there’s ‘love’ in it and we focused on that. The bed scene is deleted in the middle and goes over to another scene, but I feel the director made the right choice”.
He continued, “I saw the comments after the teaser went out and the most I saw was, ‘I’m sure that’s it’. I was satisfied because that’s not all. I didn’t want to make it linger. I did my best to complete it”.
