Numerous posts from fans all across the world denounced the actor’s past actions and sought an explanation. So yet, Lee Jung Jae’s camp has said nothing in response to these revived charges.

The Golden Globes Are an Award For…?
The Golden Globes are an honour given annually to actors and directors in celebration of their work in the film industry. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) presents all of the awards every year in honour of those who have gone above and beyond in the film and television industries.
At this year’s Emmys, Lee Jung-Jae won the award for Best Actor in a Drama for his role in “Squid Game,” making history as the first Asian actor to win in the category.
Thank you to the Television Academy, Netflix, and the director for bringing these issues that we all confront to the screen in such an imaginative way.
Team ‘Squid Game,’ you have my gratitude. As he accepted his prize, he addressed the audience in Korea, thanking them for their support. He then proceeded to restate his remarks in Korean.
Because of his performance in “Squid Game,” a Netflix original that has become an unexpected hit, Jung-Jae deserves to be nominated.
The first episode of the series debuted on the service last September. The second season of the South Korean drama was ordered in June following its popular premiere. The director of “Hunt” has never previously been nominated for an Emmy.
There were 14 nominations for “Squid Game” at this year’s Emmys, and it ended up winning four honours at the Creative Arts Emmys earlier this month. The award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series went to Lee You-mi, who played Ji-Yeong, and she won a gold statue.

The police report states that Lee while operating a BMW with a blood alcohol level of 0.222% at 2 a.m. in Gangnam-gu, collided with the vehicle of a 23-year-old female office worker. The actor insisted his manager was in charge, despite the charges.
At 12 a.m. on August 22, 2002, he was arrested for driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.054% by the Gangnam police station. Lee Jung Jae told police that he and his pals had consumed three bottles of beer at a bar before getting behind the wheel.
In the early 2000s, the actor was also involved in two altercations. The first time, in 1999, Lee Jung Jae was accused of attacking a man while drinking with four pals in a pub in Seoul, Cheongdamdong (30 years old).
The second assault accusation was filed against the actor on September 26, 2000, for assaulting a 22-year-old lady outside a nightclub in Haeundae-gu, Busan.
According to the news, the woman was hospitalised for two weeks after he dragged and kicked her. The actor made peace with the victim and confirmed that he had not touched any of his body parts at that time.
