Amid news on Dec 23rd that a woman in her 50s fell down the breakwater of Naksan Port in Yangyang, Gangwon-do, it was belatedly revealed that the woman was a mid-sized celebrity A.

The incident was also reported in the news that a woman in her 50s was rescued by the Coast Guard rescue team and suffered several bruises after falling off the breakwater.
Regarding this, B said, “It was an accident in which a person was swept away through the poorly made iron railings by a sudden soaring rough wave and fell into the sea under the breakwater surrounded by rocks. There was no sign “no trespassing” sign as well. They reported this as if A had an accident due to her own carelessness.”
