Recently, actor Jang Keun Suk was in hot water for his alleged comments regarding porn star Aoi Sola. However, it came to light that the incident in question was simply untrue.

On February 17, a media outlet reported that Jang committed a major faux pas when he was in Japan for his concert in August of 2011.

According to the outlet, when Jang was asked what he wanted to eat in Japan, he replied, "I want to eat Aoi Sola."

Jang Keun Suk′s Aoi Sola Controversy Not True

Even if we were to go along with this alleged report, it′s not hard to believe that Jang did not have a translator with him when he arrived at the airport in Japan.

Without the help of a translator, it is not farfetched to believe that Jang could have misunderstood the reporter’s question as ‘Who do you want to meet in Japan?’ rather than ‘What do you want to eat in Japan?′ - which would explain why he replied, "Aoi Sola."

However, after going back and reviewing the video of his arrival in Japan, the alleged claims proved to be completely untrue.

When asked by the Japanese press, "What do you want to eat in Japan?" Jang clearly replied, "Sushi." In fact, there was no mention of Aoi Sola at all.

Unfortunately for Jang, this bit of false information was widely disseminated online and the public backlash against him was severe.

In an exclusive phone interview with enews, Jang said through a rep, "[I] did not make those comments. It seems my public image took a big hit (because of this incident)."
