On the 9th, Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office Criminal Court 1 disclosed information about Ms. A, a women who was informally charged for threatening to use naked pictures of Mr B, a member of a popular male idol group, for blackmail purposes.
According to prosecutors, Ms. A blackmailed Mr. B and his agency last October by threatening to reveal naked pictures of Mr. B unless she was given 1 billion won.
Ms. A stated that she had naked pictures and videos of Mr. B that she made 4 to 5 years ago while they were dating and threatened to use them against him.
Rumors of Mr. B being a popular idol actor spread across the internet.
In particular, reports came out on JBTC cable tv channel which showed blurred pictures of Park Yoochun and JYJ in conjunction with the news, misleading people to think that he was the idol involved.
In response, Park Yoochun’s agency, C-JeS entertainment, has said “We consulted with Park Yoochun himself and his involvement in this ‘Idol Threat Case’ is completely unfounded. Frankly, it is quite embarrassing for those news stations to associate Park Yoochun with this type of news. He is not the male idol group member in this scandal. These rumors are ridiculous to the point where fans do not need to be worried.” They also stated that their lawyers were preparing information to send to JTBC’s side about legal action that will be taken against them for their ‘framing’ [of Park Yoochun].
Meanwhile, the prosecutors have stated that they have received the naked photos of Mr. B, but whether the naked video exists or not has not been determined.
