Lee Byung Hun Secretly Returns to Korea and Will Attend Hearing
Lee Byung Hun has returned to Korea.
BH Entertainment, Lee Byung Hun’s agency, stated on November 21, “We’re making the announcement en bloc because we’ve received many inquiries. Lee Byung Hun entered Korea on November 21 at 6 a.m. (KST). We hope there are no misunderstandings in regards to his schedule.”
Having carried out his official and unofficial schedules in America, Lee Byung Hun will likely have no problem attending the trial on November 24, as he secretly returned to the country on November 21. During his stay with Lee Min Jung in America, Lee Byung Hun carried out his schedules as the honorary ambassador of California and wrapped up work for his Hollywood movie.
Lee Byung Hun’s agency previously stated, “We did not rearrange the schedules to avoid the trial on the 11th in the first place and have no reason to avoid it so we will definitely be attending the trial on the 24th,” adding, “Even if a special circumstance arises there is actually nothing more important than the trial right now. We will be attending after becoming familiar with information related to witness attendance.”
In September, Lee Byung Hun was the victim of attempted blackmail of 5 billion won by Glam’s Da Hee and model A. Da Hee and model A were arrested and charged for making a joint threat and the first round of trial was held on October 16, during which Da Hee and model A partly admitted to making a threat but also made new claims.
About this, the police requested Lee Byung Hun as the witness and the second trial was to be held on November 11 but when Lee Byung Hun gave a notice to not attend the trial due to his stay in America, it was postponed to November 24. On that day, Lee Byung Hun will be attending the trial himself.
