An important lesson for those who only read news headlines.

A link titled: Lee Min Ho admits being bisexual went viral on Facebook this week, leading fans to believe that the actor had came out.

The link led to a popular Filipino news agency, which was why it was quickly shared across social media.

However, for those who read the article, it was in fact about the actor visiting the Philippines for a concert and not about him confirming his sexuality.

The misleading prank comes from a feature on Facebook where people could edit the title of the links that they’re sharing before they post it.

It only goes to show two kinds of readers today: those who actually read, and those who only read headlines.
