It seems that another star has been caught in the malicious web of sex tapes. Since last week, Leessang rapper Gary has been getting the wrong kind of media attention when a sex video dubbed “Gary Video” went viral.
The fact that the man in the video has a large tattoo on his arm was what stoked the fire – as Gary also has one.
At first Gary’s agency Leessang Company turned a blind eye to the scandal as they thought it was “not worth responding to.
“But then the video went viral on SNS and we realised just how defamatory it was to Gary,” a spokesperson told Yonhap. The agency will now pursue legal actions against the original uploader of the video. The agency also gave solid evidence that the man in the video is not Gary.
Foremost, the tattoos are different. The man in the video has a tattoo on his left arm, Gary’s is on his right.
Another reason why the agency was reluctant to take legal actions sooner was because they didn’t want to shame the couple in the video. Leessang Company spokesman said that the man in the video actually called up the agency to apologise and worried for Gary’s reputation. The company is currently investigating the case in order to find the person responsible.
