Singer and actor Lee Ji Hoon
attempted to quiet rumors that he is gay on a recent airing of MBC's Radio Star
. He said, "There were rumors that I like guys and I was going out with a guy when I first debuted." The rumors, the singer suspected, started because of the people around him. He revealed that he was close with Hong Suk Chun, even before the actor had publicly come out.
Actress Kim Jung Min commented on the side, "I heard that you were a player." And in a joking way of putting out false rumors, Lee Ji Hoon smirked as he playfully admitted, "I am actually a player."
