A South Korean actress faces up to five years in a Thai jail for catching endangered giant clams in a reality TV stunt, an official said Saturday (Jul 6), despite the show’s extensive apology.
Lee Yeol-eum was filmed diving for giant clams at a Thai marine park for a Jun 30 episode of “Law of the Jungle” – a popular South Korean reality show.
After prising two giant clams from the coral-laid seabed, Lee pumped them in the air yelling “I caught it!”
The creatures are listed as an endangered species and protected under Thai law. A picture of 23-year-old Lee picking up the mollusks started circulating online, bringing the star of Korean TV drama “My First Love” to the attention of authorities.
