It has been recently revealed by the Seoul District Prosecutors’ Office that an unnamed male idol, “A” (age 26), was blackmailed by a former girlfriend for 10 billion Won (~10 million USD).
The former girlfriend of the male idol threatened to reveal naked photos of the star unless she received money from him. The photos were taken while the two were dating. The girlfriend started threatening the idol in October of last year. She not only threatened the idol but also the idol’s management company. The management decided to bring the case to police at the end of last year.
The photos and the female were taken into custody and charged. The prosecutor for the case, taking into consideration that it was the female’s first offense, will try her offense summarily.
