Lee Min Ki’s nightmare ordeal with his blackmailer has finally come to an end.

On September 5, the Suwon District Court ruled in favor of Lee Min Ki and slapped a prison sentence against the actor’s blackmailer, Mr. Huh, saying, “Mr. Huh’s false charges were filed with the Gangnam Police despite Lee Min Ki’s innocence and he reported [the false charges] to media outlets defaming [Lee Min Ki’s] character.”

The court added, “Despite knowing Lee Min Ki did not participate in the assault, he criminally blackmailed, falsely accused and slandered his name. As [Mr. Huh] has knowingly committed his crime while denying his wrongdoing and shows no sign of changing his ways, we have sentenced him to 10 months in prison.”

The long-drawn assault case finally comes to a close for the actor after first surfacing in August 10 back in 2010. On that day, in front of a bar in Seoul’s Cheongdam-dong, Mr. Huh had mistaken a Mr. Yang as a valet parking attendee leading to a physical altercation between the two leading to bruises and minor injuries for both parties.

However, Mr. Huh then falsely accused Lee Min Ki of partaking in the assault with Mr. Yang against him and had even threatened Lee Min Ki’s agency he would report the alleged attack to the press if he didn’t receive 20 million won in compensation.

Mr. Huh eventually filed a lawsuit against Lee Min Ki with the actor filing a countersuit on charges of libel against Mr. Huh. Mr. Huh was eventually booked by the Gangnam Police Agency in December of 2010 and was finally served justice today.
