Martial arts star Jackie Chan has rubbished reports he slammed South Korea's burgeoning movie scene, insisting his remarks were twisted by the press.

The RUSH HOUR star was reported to have hit out at South Korea's lack of support for Chinese movie stars, even though China continually celebrates South Korean actors. He also denies having claimed the country's productions lacked quality.

He says, "I have lived in Korea for two years. Here, no one would believe that I am anti-Korea."
