Actor Lee Do Hyun has been on the rise lately due to his stellar performance in drama 18 Again. However, he was recently embroiled in a controversy when fans had uncovered something on social media.

The account in question was speculated to be his private account as it is followed by many other models and young actors, including Im Bo Ra. Fans realized that the hat was a part of a fan support project that they had gifted Lee Do Hyun with earlier for his birthday.

A fan had tweeted the screenshot along with the following caption.

There’s such an actor that has to have his girlfriend post proof shots of gifts?

And there’s such an actor that likes the post in addition to that?

— Fan

Fans were disappointed as he had not once posted to thank the fans for the birthday support. It is customary of celebrities to post proof shots of project gifts and support. The support project was still underway, but has now been cancelled.

It was reported that the fans in charge of this had received requests from other fans to refund their support money. This was not possible as they had already spent a portion of it on the above gifts. The team has decided to donate the remaining money to charity.

Lee Do Hyun’s agency, Yuehua Entertainment, spoke to Star Today and reported that the girl in question was just an acquaintance.

The photo was taken about 3 years ago and it was a place where a few close acquaintances had gathered and they all used the hat together.
