A woman, who blackmailed JYJ Park Yoo Chun for money after picking up his ex-girlfriend’s cellphone, has been arrested by the police.
On March 12, C-JeS Entertainment released an official statement on the issue saying, “Picking up an lost item and using it without permission is already a crime in itself, so we requested an investigation.”
“The amount that Kim demanded was a large amount of 100 million won, so she was immediately put under arrest and the cast was sent to the prosecution.”
C-JeS continued, “Kim had found a lost cellphone last month (February) and looked through personal information freely when she found Park Yoo Chun related items inside. With that information, she demanded 100 million won or she would sell it to press or release it online.”
“The cellphone in question didn’t even belong to Park Yoo Chun, and therefore he has nothing to do with this case. He is currently focusing on his filming and does not even know the exact details of this issue,” said C-JeS, mentioning that the cellphone photos and texts were nothing to hide. “The reason for this statement is to cooperate in the case where a suspect was trying to violate a person’s privacy, so please refrain from reporting exaggerated reports.”
C-JeS added, “In the case an article with false reports with no evidence that violates private life, to protect our company’s artist, we will press charges, so please cooperate with us.”
