Late Park Yong Ha’s Ex-Manager Gets Banned From Working in the Entertainment Industry
After trying to steal money from the late actor’s bank accounts, late Park Yong Ha’s ex-manager, Ms. Lee, has been banned from working in the Korean entertainment industry.
The Corea Entertainment Management Association announced that it has decided to put a prohibition of employment on Ms. Lee after deeming her unqualified to work as a manager.
“She has caused a social disruption and left a deep scar on the workers in the industry,” stated the Association. “She has also continued to openly work at a new entertainment company while she was still being tried.”
“Even after she completes her prison sentence, there is a great chance for her to be active as an entertainment manager in Japan. We will be sending information about Ms. Lee as an unqualified manager to entertainment company affiliates in Japan. We plan on restoring the reliability by informing all entertainment and relevant companies in Korea of this matter as well.”
In July of 2010, Ms. Lee attempted to withdraw around 240 million won from Park Yong Ha’s bank account using his seal a week after the actor took his own life. She also took 26 million won worth of the actor’s merchandise from the company. In these cases, she claimed she had the authority to use the money as manager and that the merchandise was something for her to remember the actor with.
In November of 2013, she was charged with forgery of private documents, forgery and fraudulent use of private writing, attempted fraud, and theft, receiving a sentence of eight months in prison.
