The South Korean actor prefers to stay away from the internet, but there are users posing as Hyun Bin.
Korean entertainment fans enjoy following the activities of their favorite artists on social media, but not all accounts are what they appear to be, and Hyun Bin’s company talked about it.
VAST Entertainment recently released a statement to alert fans of its artists, especially those who follow Hyun Bin’s career and do not hesitate to show their affection for the actor. After receiving several reports, the company declared that there are users posing as several of its stars, so it specified which are the official channels and accounts, noting that they are the only ones used by the celebs under its seal.
However, this post also specified that Hyun Bin is not active on any social media, so the accounts claiming to be him are completely fake.
VAST Entertainment invited fans to be careful and not be misled by this phishing attempt.
WHY ARE THERE FAKE PROFILES FOR KOREAN STARS?
It has long been known that different accounts without verification often pose as South Korean idols and actors and are used to contact the followers of these celebrities, but in all cases they are scams disguised as donations.

Users send messages arguing that they are using accounts that they keep hidden in order to make better use of them and after thanking the support that fans are giving they are invited to join various causes, projects or simply make payments and purchases instead. .
Remember to follow your favorite idols and actors only on verified or officially announced accounts and not fall for these types of traps.
