Gary Kang"s agency, Leessang Company, issued a strongly worded statement denying that the singer and reality show star appears in a currently circulating sex tape.

Leessang Company not only denies that Gary Kang (Kang Hee Gun) is in the tape being circulated but says they will take decisive legal action against anyone spreading rumors that he is.

The agency told the Korean media outlet Naver TV that when they first heard the rumors, they did not even think they were worth responding to. But as the rumors spread and more people began to discuss them, the agency decided that it was time to release a statement and take action.

On August 31, the agency released an official statement denying that Gary Kang is the person in the sex tape. The agency pointed out that the person in the sex tape has a tattoo on his left arm while Gary Kang"s is on his right arm. The tattoos are similar but not exactly the same.

The agency said that the man who acknowledges being in the sex tape contacted them and expressed his concern about any problems his tape might have caused the popular celebrity.

Leessang Company will request a formal police investigation to discover who first spread the tape and the rumor. They will also pursue charges against anyone who continues to spread it. The agency asked the public to help stop the spread of such rumors because they hurt Kang and the actual people in the video.

The agency"s statement comes only days after an arrest warrant was issued against the man allegedly spreading false rumors about the existence of a sex tape that supposedly featured actress Lee Si Young. Her agency not only denied that she was in such a tape but is planning to sue the person who spread it. If convicted the person could spend years in jail and have to pay a $50,000 fine.

Gary Kang is the rapper and lyricist of the hip-hop duo Leessang. He has had several cameo appearances on dramas, including "Emergency Couple" and "The Girl Who Sees Smells." But he is also well known because of his appearances on variety shows. He has been a regular guest on "Running Man" since 2010. Together with actress Song Ji Hyo, they are known as the Monday Couple because of their affectionate onscreen relationship/

Is Gary Kang Jealous Of Song Ji Hyo's New Ex-Boyfriend

Is Gary Kang Jealous Of Song Ji Hyo's New Ex-Boyfriend

Song Ji Hyo and Gary Kang

Song Ji Hyo and Gary Kang have long been called the "Monday Couple" because they co-star on the variety show "Running Man." He seems to adore her and they make an appealing onscreen couple.

But Gary, a singer and member of the group Leessang, often has to share her attentions with her co-stars. As an actress Song Ji Hyo has had some attractive leading men, including Choi Jin Hyuk, Joo Jin Mo, Jo In Sung and Lee Dong Wook.

Her latest leading man is the up-and-coming actor Byun Yo Han. Byun will star with her in the upcoming drama "The Ex-Girlfriends Club."

How does Gary feel about this?

Almost every time she appears in a new drama, at least one reporter will ask her how her "Monday boyfriend" feels about her new drama co-star. And her latest drama is no exception.

At the April 30 press conference for the tvN drama "Ex-Girlfriends Club," she was asked how Gary felt about her filming romantic scenes with Byun Yo Han.

"Isn"t Gary jealous," one reporter asked.

The actress said that in some ways Gary was starting to feel like an ex-boyfriend as she was spending more time with Byun Yo Han.

"I meet Yo Han every day besides Monday and Tuesday," said Song Ji Hyo. "If Gary feels like an ex-boyfriend, then Yo Han feels like a new shooting comet."

But she said that Gary did support her and she was grateful for that.

"I recently filmed with oppa and he told me good things about my drama. That he thinks it will be fun. After seeing me with Yo Han, he said we look good together. He supported me. Thank you oppa."

In "Ex Girlfriends Club" Song plays Kim Soo Jin, a woman who decides to direct a film based on a popular webtoon.

The webtoon"s writer Bang Myung Soo writes about and compares his ex-girlfriends. It is only after Kim Soo Jin has committed to directing the film and cannot afford to get out of her commitment that she realizes the webtoon author is none other than her ex-boyfriend. And that makes her a character in the film she is directing. Awkward!

"Ex-Girlfriends Club" also stars Lee Yoon Ji, Jang Ji Eun, and Ryu Hwa Young, who all attended the press conference along with the director Kwon Suk Jang. The drama will air on Fridays and Saturdays, beginning May 8.

Five Fun Facts About Kang Dong Won

Five Fun Facts About Kang Dong Won

Kang Dong Won

Kang Dong Won plays Song Hye Kyo"s husband and the father of a child with progeria in the film "My Palpitating Life," also called "My Brilliant Life." He"s a talented actor with a decade-long career but there may be some things you don"t know about him. Here are five facts:

1. He was academically gifted, scoring an IQ of 137. He has a degree in mechanical engineering from Hanyang University. On a recent episode of the radio show Park Kyung Lim"s "Two O" Clock Date," a caller said he went to school with Kang Dong Won and described him as good-looking and "good at studying."

2. His good looks led to a modeling career when he was still attending university. He modeled in Paris for such brands as DKNY and Gucci.

3. He took a break from acting while fulfilling his two-year mandatory military service as a public service worker. In an interview with "High Cut," he said that it was at first strange not to feel competitive.

"The entertainment circle is similar to the sports industry in that competition is fierce," he said. "If you lose your footing for a bit, you will drop off the cliff. The thought that all of a sudden I"ll be living two years without that competition was a little strange. It felt peaceful and yet at the same time I felt anxious. As I was working as public service worker, it was my work. But at the same time, it wasn"t my original job. I felt a keen yearning for work."

4. He has no desire to do dramas or variety shows. He wants to focus on films. In fact he has not filmed a drama since 2004 and the very idea gives him nightmares. He does not like waiting for a scene to be written so that it can be shot and then having to memorize it on the spot. Too stressful.

"When people talked about nightmares, they talked about dreaming that they had to do the college entrance exams again or having to go to the army again," he told "High Cut." "To me, doing a drama again has the same kind of feeling. The stress was enormous. I don"t think I can endure that."

5. He does one day want to have a family.

"My friends are all married and have kids," the 33-year-old actor said on "Two O" Clock Date." "But I want to get married late, in my late 30s or early 40s."

While he plays a young father in the film, he does not worry too much about his own ability to parent. His own dad was a family man and a supportive father. But he"s not sure his children should aspire to be actors.

"If they really want to do it I won"t be able to stop them, but I would advise them to not become actors," he said. "I saw somewhere that statistically, entertainment and sports have the most competition. Actors are "out" when they have two or three failed projects. I want my kids to live freely, without too much competition."


Gary Kang And Song Ji Hyo: The Best Couple Not Meant To Be

Gary Kang And Song Ji Hyo: The Best Couple Not Meant To Be


Rapper Gary Kang and actress Song Ji Hyo make a very appealing couple. They"ve kissed. They even won "Best Kiss" at the DramaFever awards.

He professed his love for her at awards ceremonies. He gets jealous whenever she interacts with anyone else. Recently, he got jealous when she kissed actor Seo Kang Joon during a game on the show "Running Man." He got jealous when she recently got a phone call.

"Who called you at this hour. I"m curious," he said. "Did you get a boyfriend?"

A fortuneteller on "Running Man" once said that the so-called "Monday Couple" were very compatible and their marriage would be a "match made in heaven." Gary even proposed to Song Hye Kyo on television.

But while their onscreen relationship as longstanding guests on "Running Man," is fun to watch, and she calls him oppa, there is no proof that they are more than friends. And she has had a boyfriend for two years.

She may attend his concerts as part of the duo Leessang. He may have done a cameo in her last comedy, "Emergency Couple." But despite four years of shipping she has dated CEO Baek Chang Joo of her agency, CJES Entertainment, since 2011. And despite rumors that they"ve broken up, the couple still sees each other.

When the news of Song Ji Hyo dating CEO Baek Chang Joo was first made public two years ago, fans tweeted to say they felt bad for Gary.

 "Why are people telling me they"re sorry," he responded. "They don"t need to be sorry and I don"t need to hear it."

She obviously likes him as a friend but sometimes it seems as if he likes her more.

He has described his co-star as laid back, sweet and cute. When asked if he would date Song Ji Hyo if she were not dating someone else, he avoided giving a specific answer. He just said he was not very good at relationships. And he would not be good for her.

While she has stated that she has no immediate plans to marry and wants to enjoy her freedom, Gary did feel the need to secure their future together.

"On Monday, you and I are a couple until we die. Even if you marry, come over and sleep at my house on Mondays," he said.

It"s hard to imagine her future husband would agree.

But then at the DramaFever awards Song Ji Hyo and Gary Kang also won the "Best Couple Not Meant To Be" award.

Kang Gary appears to have proven one more time, for the record, that sex sells, as the rapper"s new single "Shower Later" debuts at number one this week on the Billboard K-pop Hot 100, presumably on the strength of a red hot music video that shatters the genre"s international reputation for being tamer than the West.

The video for "Shower Later," which Billboard translates as "Some Occasional Showers," features a collection of hosed down women simulating sex acts in cars and with power tools.

Gary, one half of the popular hip-hop duo Leessang, has two songs in Billboard"s K-pop top 10 as a solo artist this week, with his song "Zotto Mola" coming in at number 10.

"Something" by four-member girl group Girl"s Day appears to have staying power, jumping three spots, from number five to number two, in its third week on the Billboard K-Pop Hot 100 .

Earlier this month, Billboard"s Jeff Benjamin wrote that "Something" "might prove to be the group"s hottest moment yet."

"As usual, Girl"s Day"s strong, elastic vocals are the centerpiece of the production jumping from a soft head-voice delivery to diva growling," Benjamin added.

After debuting last week at number one, K.Will"s "Like A Star" dropped to number three on Billboard"s K-pop chart.

Written by the successful soundtrack composer Kim Sae Jin, "Like A Star" is yet another chart topping single from the soundtrack for the television drama "You Who Came From The Stars."

Lyn"s "My Destiny" currently holding firm at the chart"s number four spot for the second week in a row, is also from the "You Who Came From The Stars" soundtrack.

And rounding out the top five is singer Ailee"s collaboration with Wheesung, "Singing Got Better," down from the number three position on the chart last week.

The RB vocalist wrote and produced "Singing Got Better" for Ailee. He also appears in the video.

Although the song was recorded three years ago, its release had been delayed while Wheesung served out his mandatory two years in the South Korean army.
