Prosecution Demands Three Years in Jail for Lee Byung Hun′s Blackmailers
The prosecution has demanded three years in jail for model A and Glam′s Dahee for blackmailing Lee Byung Hun for 50 billion won.
On December 16 at 2:40 PM KST, the Seoul Central District Court held its third hearing for the ′Lee Byung Hun 50 Billion Won Blackmail Case′ with both model A and Dahee present, where the prosecution and lawyers both issued their statements. The prosecution and the lawyers both stated that they will not be questioning model A and Dahee, leading the hearing to reorganize everything that has happened in the case.
Regarding model A and Dahee, the prosecution stated, "Although they have admitted to the crime of blackmail, it is clearly the truth that they pretended to be in a relationship with victim, Lee Byung Hun, with no evidence and made monetary demands. They planned on extorting money even before meeting the victim," and "It′s already been confirmed that the victim refused this in mutually sent text messages."
"There was rarely a time when model A and Lee Byung Hun met alone. Also, we also came to the understanding that the defendants have called the victim in a belittling manner, and couldn′t find any truth in model A′s claim that she was dating the victim," said the prosecution. "The defendants only saw the victim as someone to get money from."
"Although it ended as an attempt, demanding a large sum of money such as 50 billion won while blackmailing with a private video that was filmed, we′ve come to the conclusion that the nature of the crime is wicked. They also didn′t show any sincere apologies while making claims that were far from the truth. Due to this, the victim and his families received much mental and material harm."
With these details, the prosecution demanded three years in jail for model A and Dahee.
Back in September, Lee Byung Hun was blackmailed by Glam member Dahee and model A with a video that consisted of obscene jokes, in exchange for 50 billion won. Dahee and model A were later arrested.
The first trial was held on October 16 with model A and Dahee both admitting to the blackmail, but also bringing up new claims. In the second trial on November 11, Lee Byung Hun personally appeared as the victim and shared details regarding the case.
In the third hearing, Lee Byung Hun′s side and model A and Dahee′s side had a time of reorganizing all the details and distributing new evidence. The final hearing will be held on January 15.
