An online news link titled ‘Lee Min Ho admits being bisexual’ is going viral on Facebook and has made the Korean star trending on social media websites.
The article preview read:

But upon clicking the link, readers will be redirected to the ABS-CBN News page, with the original link which is an article about Lee Min Ho from over a year ago who went to the Philippines for his concert.
The misleading prank comes from a feature on Facebook where people could edit or tamper the titles of the links that they’re sharing before they post it.
This incident also happened on GMA Network’s website where an online news became trending when the title of the article was changed to Overflowing STD virus from Kris Aquino causes a stink at NAIA-1 from the original title, Overflowing septic tank causes a stink at NAIA-1.
Lesson: Read before you share.
