Cheating Controversy of Kim Min Gwi
In the post, the netizen stated that Min Gwi cheated on her with several women during their six-year-long relationship. According to the person, the actor enjoyed one-night stands and clubbing during this period, and he verbally abused her several times.
"You keep appearing on television, and you repeatedly upload photos on Instagram, but I wish that everyone knew that you were a selfish, non-human, bad piece of trash," the netizen wrote.
The person also claimed the actor broke COVID-19 safety protocol to meet a woman he was secretly seeing. He went out to meet her without taking permission from the authorities or informing them about leaving the place, the netizen stated. She also claimed that the actor kept quiet about this meeting even after he was tested positive.
"I was worried about you when you tested positive for COVID-19, but later, it turned out that you were seeing someone behind my back, and even when you started self-quarantine, you snuck out at dawn to meet her," the netizen added.
However, his agency Big Picture Entertainment denied the accusation and stated that he never broke COVID-19 safety protocol while self quarantining. After the actor was tested positive, he focused only on his treatment, the firm added.
