      Prosecutors have requested an arrest warrant for the reporter who started a groundless rumor involving actress Lee Si-young, according to the Seoul Central Prosecutors' Office on Tuesday.

      In June, the reporter stated through text messages and social network services that there was a sex tape of the actress and it was leaked while Lee was in dispute with her management agency, causing her to attempt to commit suicide.

      Lee's agency filed charges against the reporter as soon as it heard of the rumor.
