Agency Denies Scandal Between Lee Byung Hun and Model who Attempted to Blackmail Him
Lee Byung Hun’s agency has released another official statement.
BH Entertainment released a press release on September 11 denying the rumor that model A, who was one of the two women who threatened Lee Byung Hun, was Lee Byung Hun’s girlfriend and threatened him to give her 5 billion won upon hearing his decision to break up.
The agency revealed, “He never even met alone with her so we have no idea how the word ‘break up’ came about.”
The agency added, “Lee Byung Hun felt that the suspects had other intentions when they told him they were struggling financially, which made him decide to cut off contact with them and we think that’s where the misunderstanding came from. We can only interpret that they planned it all out, as they even prepared a travel bag to carry 5 billion won.”
The following is the official statement from Lee Byung Hun’s agency
Hello, this is BH Entertainment.
Lee Byung Hun met suspects Lee and Kim through an acquaintance of his at the end of June and he never met them alone so we have no idea how the word ‘break up’ came about.
Lee Byung Hun felt that the suspects had other intentions when they told him they are struggling financially, which made him decide to cut off contact with them and we think that’s where the misunderstanding came from.
According to the police investigation, they secretly filmed a video with a smartphone app in the beginning of July and began looking for tickets to Europe and even prepared a travel bag to hold 5 billion won, which only leads us to think that they planned their actions.
What we claimed on the police report matched up with what the suspects told the authorities, which led to the arrest investigation. We think they are trying to avoid severe punishment by making their act seem like it was accidental when it was a planned one, and purposely scarring us for self-defense.
We will be watching the investigation to find more about what other intentions they had. Please don’t sympathize with unconfirmed facts, as we will be the first to let you know when the accurate facts and results come out.
