Korean star refused credit ad offers
JEWEL In The Palace actress Lee Young Ae was said to have rejected many advertisement offers from loan companies, apparently mindful of their negative image.
A source close to Lee said in an interview that she has been offered a huge pay package for appearing in ads by loan firms.
"After reviewing the companies, Lee has decided not to take up the offer," the source said.
"She even rejected a renewal of her contract with a credit card company because she was heartbroken by the difficulties that young people face."
Lee is currently in the middle of shooting for the drama, Saimdang, The Herstory.
