Actor Lee Sang-yeob appeared on the latest episode of "Running Man".
He is the only grandson of the former Dongguk Jaekang chairman Kim Jong-jin.
The chairman, who passed away in 2001 to an unfortunate helicopter accident, worked at Pohang Steel from the late '60s to '90s and eventually became chairman in 1998.
Lee Sang-yeob's agency stated that the part about his grandfather is true, but that his parents are ordinary people. He doesn't like to talk about his family and he just wants to be known as an actor.
Lee Sang-yeob mentioned in an interview, "I'm so embarrassed it got out. My family history has nothing to do with me. Some might think I'm an actor because my family is rich, but it's not like that".
