The news about Korean superstar Lee Min Ho admitting that he’s a bisexual became one of the trending topics and most shared news online just this week. With this news, many netizens were surprised since Lee Min Ho is known to be one of the manly leading men in Korea’s showbiz industry. Just this day, the issue about Lee Min Ho of being a bisexual was confirmed to be a hoax.
Well, there’s nothing to confirm about Lee Min Ho’s sexuality because it was found that this news was tampered by irresponsible netizens. Other than Lee Min Ho the other victim of this very serious prank is the local TV network ABS-CBN since, the article that was tampered came from ABS-CBN News.
For those who saw the headline “Lee Min Ho admits being Bisexual” and only relied to the headline may found that the article is true because, it came from a credible source which is ABS-CBN News but for those who doubted about the headline and read the entire article, well you’re lucky enough at least you didn’t fall to the online prank.
Clicking the tampered headline will lead you to the article originally posted by ABS-CBN June of last year about Lee Min Ho’s arrival in Manila for his one-night concert in SM Mall of Asia Arena that has an original title of “Lee Min Ho Arrives in Manila for Concert”.
Being a victim for the second time by irresponsible netizens, ABS-CBN News released an article to counter this wrong act. ABS-CBN News pointed out that an easy access to tamper news headline is due to Facebook feature which allow the users to edit, alter or modify news articles that are being shared.
