While news of Kim Woo Bin and model Yoo Ji Ahn confirming their dating status is still hot off the press, a certain “Balmain incident” is circulating the web, angering the fans.

Recently, a post was made on an online community forum titled “Kim Woo Bin – Yoo Ji Ahn – Balmain Incident.” along with a photo.

According to a report on Soompi, the post describes how a fan gifted Kim Woo Bin with a limited edition Balmain sweater but a photo of his girlfriend Yoo Ji Ahn wearing that sweater was captured and posted on the Web.

The post also describes, “The fan who gifted that Balmain sweater to Kim Woo Bin posted, ‘I went through so much trouble to buy that, I’m so mad,’ and then Yoo Ji Ahn immediately deleted that photo on her Instagram.”

Netizens commented on the post, “It’s understandable that the fan got upset since it is a limited edition sweater,” “He should have been more careful,” “I guess that fan is no longer a fan anymore,” and many more.

However, Kim Woo Bin’s agency Sidus HQ commented, “It is true that a certain fan gifted Kim Woo Bin with a Balmain sweater. But after receiving the gift, Kim Woo Bin bought the same sweater and gave it to his girlfriend. So there are two separate Balmain sweaters involved. Even if she is his girlfriend, Kim Woo Bin would never be able to give a precious gift from a fan to her. That is not the case.”
