Actor Kwon Sang Woo, who first shot to fame with Stairway To Heaven, had recently been accused by a reporter that runs a YouTube channel called Kim Yong Ho, Entertainment Team Leader. As a former major entertainment journalist, his channel has become the trusted source for much news and speculations, with almost 400,000 subscribers.
The reporter cast doubts on Kwon Sang Woo by naming him for suspicions of gambling. He claimed that the “top star” that was reported to have been gambling with gagman Shin Jung Hwan in 2005 at a private casino in Chungdamdong was Kwon Sang Woo. At that time, Shin Jung Hwan was caught for the act, as gambling is illegal for South Koreans, but Kwon Sang Woo got off.
After the reporter revealed this on his Youtube channel on the 20th of September, Kwon Sang Woo’s agency, Su Company stepped up to make a statement to news outlets. The company told DongA News that it is a ridiculous claim and that it was completely false. The same YouTube channel previously had reported on many other scandalous news including AOA‘s bullying scandal and rumors of Seo Ye Ji and Kim Soo Hyun dating.
The company also claims that they will be taking action after discussing on how to proceed. Kwon Sang Woo is currently married to former Miss Korea and current actress, Son Tae Young. They have a son and a daughter.
