  1. That's not true. The real reason why Yoo Seung Ho decided to deactivate his IG account is because many people created a fake account and are pretending to be him, asking for money from the fans which is very opposite to the real Yoo Seung Ho who is very generous and not so active in SNS.. It's just so disappointing why people are taking advantage of the celebrities just to earn money that way..
