With the problem regarding social network hacks these days, WINNER member Kang Seung Yoon revealed that his identity was once impersonated online.

On the October 15th episode of 'One Night of TV Entertainment,' the members of YG Entertainment's rookie boy band WINNER were guests of the show.

During the discussion, Kang Seung Yoon revealed something rather unfortunate that happened to him. According to the singer, one of his social networking sites was violated when a hacker impersonated him online. Kang Seung Yoon explained that the imposter did things like ask followers for money using his social network account.

Kang Seung Hoon said, "Because I'm from an audition program, the impersonator had taken money and valuables from those who seemed like they were associated with or working for other audition programs."

Lee Seung Hoon then added to the story. "What's even worse is that an acquaintance of mine had even given the impersonator money," he said. "They got close to one another thinking that he was the real Kang Seung Yoon and my acquaintance said that he had given the impersonator money when he asked him."

The interviewer asked Kang Seung Hoon what his reaction was regarding the impersonator. "I was really surprised. Personally, I felt regrettable," he said.

TEEN TOP was also the guest on the episode as well.
