In regards to the issue, Yoo Jae Suk’s management agency FNC Entertainment warned his fans against the fake account and made it clear that the comedian does not manage a Facebook account by himself.

Moreover, the management agency also posted a notice through its official Facebook account saying, “Hello. This is FNC Entertainment. Recently, we have found that there is a fake Facebook account impersonating Yoo Jae Suk. We would like to inform you that the official Facebook account of Yoo Jae Seok is FNC official Facebook, and that all of the other accounts are not Yoo Jae Suk’s official account. Thank you.”
Meanwhile, Yoo Jae Suk is not the first celebrity to have an impostor on social media sites as fake accounts have become a trend among cyber criminals doing illegal business such as profiles being sold for profit.
