Former Sechs Kies member Kang Sung Hoon filed a lawsuit against a Mr. Kang, who was involved in the flow of money in the numerous cases surrounding Kang Sung Hoon.

A source close to Kang Sung Hoon told enews, "Kang Sung Hoon has sued Mr. Kang, who didn′t properly deliver the money that was meant to be given to Mr. Hwang. Kang Sung Hoon′s mother also trusted her money with Mr. Kang and went through a similar ordeal, leading her to sue him for fraud with the Bundang Police Agency."

According to this source, Kang Sung Hoon had problems with investments regarding a concert he had put together in 2009 to take place in Japan. He came to invest his own money, and also borrowed 500 million won from an acquaintance, Mr. Hwang, but the concert didn′t take place as planned.

Kang Sung Hoon asked Mr. Kang to deliver the borrowed money back to Mr. Hwang, but Mr. Kang failed to do so, leading Mr. Hwang to think that Kang Sung Hoon hadn′t paid back the money. In the end Mr. Hwang was led to sue Kang Sung Hoon for fraud, starting the long and winding legal affair between the two.

The source said, "Though Mr. Kang failed to deliver the money, [Kang Sung Hoon is] working hard to pay back the borrowed money to Mr. Hwang. After he was released from the detention center in Seongdong, he went to visit Mr. Hwang three times but they failed to reach an agreement. He will work hard to pay back the money before the last hearing."

Kang Sung Hoon was arrested on charges of swindling about a billion won from a Mr. Hwang, Mr. Oh and a Mr. Lee from the year 2009 to January 2011. As Kang Sung Hoon continuously showed he was willing to pay back the money, the court released him without bail in September.

On November 15 he held an emergency press conference and said he "did borrow money but didn′t mean to swindle" from the men, emphasizing that there had been a misunderstanding.

The final hearing for Kang Sung Hoon will take place on January 19, 2013.
