On July 15, shocking news regarding actress Choo Ja Hyun‘s husband, Yu Xiaoguang (more commonly known to Koreans as Woo Hyo Kwang), and his alleged infidelity has been making headlines all across Chinese and Korean media sites.
Chinese media company Sohu Entertainment published an article earlier the same day detailing the cheating rumors involving Choo Ja Hyun’s husband with dozens of photos and video footage evidence. Sohu Entertainment reported that Woo Hyo Kwang was caught sitting with a woman on his lap — that wasn’t his wife.
Along with their article, they also released video footage evidence of the incident that included the very moment that shows the alleged infidelity. In the video footage, Woo Hyo Kwang (dressed in black) can be seen calling over to someone, which is when a woman in blue rushes over to his van.
After both Woo Hyo Kwang and the unknown woman gets into the van, it becomes evidently clear that she sits on his lap.
Here is a closeup photo of Woo Hyo Kwang with the unknown woman on his lap.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time that Woo Hyo Kwang has been accused of cheating on his wife. Back in 2017, just 9 months after he wed Choo Ja Hyun, he was caught holding hands with another unknown woman. The two were captured leaving a restaurant together while holding hands during the late hours of the evening. This history has since resurfaced in light of the current accusation.
At the time of the 2017 cheating allegations, Woo Hyo Kwang released a personal statement to address the rumors. He shared that the alleged incident happened as “a sign of friendship” after an evening out with some of their friends.
The unknown woman captured in the footage with Woo Hyo Kwang uploaded a group picture from the night in question in an effort to defuse the accusations — and her photo made quite an impact. The entire situation was almost immediately alleviated and put to rest.
While his previous accusations subsided without garnering much media attention, Woo Hyo Kwang’s new cheating rumors are making waves, as they continue to rank #1 on both Chinese and Korean sites. The reason why these new allegations are making more headlines this time is due to Woo Hyo Kwang’s newfound popularity as a “loyal” man.
In 2019, the couple appeared on SBS‘s Same Bed Different Dreams 2, where they showed off their newlywed married life. It was thanks to the SBS variety program that the Chinese actor began to get favored by the public for his loyal image, as he showed off his endless aegyo (cuteness) towards his wife. His tenderness and love for Choo Ja Hyun was well-received by the public, as netizens expressed their envy for the couple’s seemingly unbreakable love.
With these new infidelity accusations, however, the actor’s admirable reputation may have crumbled overnight. In light of the growing situation, the couple’s Korean label BH Entertainment released a statement denying the rumors, alleging that the incident was just a “misunderstanding.”
It happened back in May, when he was returning home after meeting up with some of his acquaintances. The people who appear in the video are close acquaintances with the director, who are like family. No matter how close these acquaintances are, however, we will pay closer attention to the actions that may cause misunderstandings.
As there are many people who support Woo Hyo Kwang and Choo Ja Hyun as a couple, we promise that the parties involved will be more careful about their future actions.
