Olive9 Entertainment claims that it’s Hallyu Star, Choi Ji Woo was “framed” by malicious reporting from the Chinese media and said that “unslightly” photos of the earlier was doctored and fabricated to make her look bad.
Olive9 released evidence in a press statement of two photos placed side-by-side. The doctored photo (left) was compared to the one released by CCTV website (right). Olive9 suggested that the Chinese media did something to the original photo in order to create “malicious” news to hurt Choi Ji Woo’s image.
Olive9 claimed in their press statement, “Many stars graced this event (launch of LV store in Hong Kong) and as she (Choi Ji Woo) was greeting Chow Yun Fatt and shaking his hand, he suddenly came from behind and hugged her. That’s why you saw her shocked reaction on her face when he did that. In the photo on CCTV website, there wasn’t any “flushed” face effect at all when Chow Yun Fatt hugged her as she displayed a victory sign.”
Choi Ji Woo was one of those invited to attend the opening of the Louis Vitton flagship store in Hong Kong on 14th March. But thanks to “malicious” reporting from the Chinese media, Choi Ji Woo was described as a “drunken kitten” thanks to the “doctored” photos which made headlines and caused a furore.
But another report suggests that that might not be the truth. These were other photos taken of Choi Ji Woo as she left the event hurriedly at around 12am.
Now what do you think? Was she drunk or a case of being made to look bad?
