KUALA LUMPUR: Popular Korean actress and singer Ku Hye Sun who was recently under the spotlight for her divorce to fellow actor Ahn Jae Hyun finds it impossible to change the public’s perception of her after the scandal broke.
According to Koreaboo, the 35-year-old star of TV dramas such as The King And I, Boys Over Flowers and Angel Eyes said this during her first broadcast interview since her divorce, recently.
During the session on Sohee News, Ku described how she felt after her private chat logs were shared on Dispatch, a popular Korean entertainment portal.
“I didn’t know he would reveal our private chat logs with the media. So much happens between a married couple over the course of two years. Our fight when I couldn’t contact him for two months was all revealed on Dispatch.
“If you just read those texts without knowing the context, it sounds like I was constantly harassing him. They reported it so that the public would imagine it that way.
“I thought, ‘I could never win against them’. I felt betrayed. People tend to trust what Dispatch reports, so there was no way for me to fight them. I wasn’t in a place where I could say they were wrong. So it turned out the way they wanted. They got me to agree to the divorce and got the public to stand on their side through Dispatch,” she said.
During the interview, the actress also explained that she wanted to put the entire scandalous affair, which she described as a “nightmare”, behind her so that she could focus on moving ahead.
She said: “First, I want to go back to school, and get ready for an exhibit. I want to start over in a new place, and if the opportunity to act comes, I’d like to do that as well. I think I could do a good job in an evil role since a devil came in and out through all this.”
