Actress Lee Young-ae reportedly rejected many advertisement offers from loan companies, apparently mindful of their negative image.

A source close to Lee said in an interview that she has been offered a huge pay packet for appearing in ads by loan firms.

"After reviewing the companies, Lee has decided not to take up the offer," the source said. "She even rejected a renewal of her contract with a credit card company because she was heartbroken by the difficulties that young people face."

Lee is currently shooting for the drama, "Saimdang, the Herstory."
