Lee Byung Hun Apologizes to Lee Min Jung and Family before Departing for California
Lee Byung Hun directly apologized for the blackmailing incident.
Having been involved in the black mailing incident, Lee Byung Hun departed for California on October 20 in order to carry out pre-arranged schedules.
Making appearance at the airport looking thinner than usual, Lee Byung Hun stood in front of the reporters and said, “I’m sorry to everyone who got disappointed in me and am regretful.”
He added, “I’m especially sorry to my wife and family. I will work hard to make up for the pain I’ve caused my wife,” expressing his apology to Lee Min Jung.
Lee Byung Hun’s agency BH Entertainment told Newsen earlier today, “Lee Byung Hun will be heading to California today in order to carry out his pre-arranged schedules."
The affiliate added, “He has been carrying on his activities as an honorary ambassador for several years. He will be attending a photo shoot during this trip. His return date has not been decided on yet.”
Lee Byung Hun was the victim of attempted blackmail of 5 billion won to Glam’s Da Hee and model A. Regarding the incident, the first round of trial was held on October 16, during which Da Hee and model A admitted to making a threat but also made new claims. The prosecution has selected Lee Byung Hun as the witness and interest has been gathering on whether he will attend the trial taking place on November 11.
