6 Feb – It was reported that a plastic surgery clinic has illegally used a photo of Taiwanese singer Harlem Yu and South Korean star, Lee Min-ho to advertise their service.
As reported on China News, the said photo was originally taken after their duet performance at the CCTV's Spring Festival Gala on 30 January.
Harlem, who performed the hit Meteor Garden theme song "Qing Fei De Yi" with the "Boys Over Flowers" star, later uploaded the photo on Weibo for fans to see, but was misused by a plastic surgery clinic for an advertisement.
In one of the ad campaign which was posted at a bus stop in China, the said clinic used Harlem's image from the photo as the "Before" look, while the handsome Lee Min-ho was used as the "After" image – signifying the result of their plastic surgery service.
Both stars have yet to comment on the misuse.
