Super Junior’s Leeteuk vocalized his concerns about privacy via Instagram on Wednesday.
The 33-year-old star said that his personal cell phone number has been leaked to certain fans.
“I can handle almost anything, but please try not to call or text me late at night,” he wrote. “I think my cell phone number has been leaked overseas -- please cut me some slack (and stop calling).”
Leeteuk expressed distress over a similar issue in 2012 through Twitter where he revealed that he had received multiple warnings about a personal data leak.
He said he gets the calls no matter how many times he changes his phone number. The case was handed over to the police, but the situation remained unresolved.
Other artists such as EXO has also urged fans to help protect their privacy.
