Actor Baek Yoon-sik’s ex-girlfriend was taken to a hospital in an ambulance on Monday after overdosing on sleeping pills.
Baek recently made headlines after admitting to a romantic relationship with a woman 30 years his junior, identified as a broadcast reporter.
However, the woman made a number of allegations against Baek and his sons on Saturday, which apparently resulted in the couple breaking up.
In an interview, the woman revealed that while she was in a relationship with the actor for more than a year, she found out that he had been seeing another woman for 20 years, and that she was abused by Baek’s sons.
Both Baek and his sons recently made statements denying the allegations.
A statement made by Baek’s sons said, “We were not going to be involved with issues related to our father, but when lies are being regarded as true we wanted to reveal the real truth.”
Baek’s agency also issued a statement denying the allegations, and is seeking legal action.
