K-pop star Lee Hyori was sexually harassed in New York, the singer alleged in SBS talk show “Magic Eye” that aired Tuesday.

Lee said she was bending over to try on a pair of shoes at a shoe store in New York when a stranger approached from behind and grabbed her buttocks.

“I freaked out and looked back right away, only to see the foreign man walk away across the street of Soho. … I chased after him but was at loss because of the language barrier,” she added.

She said all she could do was to pour out English swear words, hoping that he would get the message.
