Lee Byung Hun was Fired as a Model Because He Ate Too Many Donuts?
Addressing all kinds of issues, Lee Byung Hun opened up on his rumor surrounding donuts on SBS’ Healing Camp.
On March 11, Lee Byung Hun appeared as a guest on Healing Camp, talking about a wide variety of topics from Lee Min Jung to past dating scandals.
One of the things he cleared up a nonsensical rumor that had him laughing.
The MCs asked Lee Byung Hun on his rumor about donuts and Lee Byung Hun became surprised, saying, “I didn’t know I would talk about this with my own mouth.”
He revealed that he was a CF model for a donut company, but was switched out in just a year.
“There was a rumor that I got fired because I ate too many donuts for free,” revealed the actor “The rumors said I went to the company and said, ‘Hey, I’m the model so give me more donuts. And I need one more box for my friends.’”
Lee Byung Hun at first thought it was hilarious, but soon things changed when this donut image became ingrained with his name. "I couldn′t believe people actually believed these stories.”
He added, “While I was filming the commercial, I ate more than 40 donuts. Even if I loved bread, how many more donuts would I want to eat?”
MC Han Hye Jin asked why Lee Byung Hun didn’t clear it up earlier, and Lee Byung Hun asked if the donut rumor was worth clearing up.
