While in the midst of being charged with illegal gambling, Lee Soo Geun and Tak Jae Hoon have come under yet another controversy regarding police bribery.
A particular news agency reported that Lee Soo Geun and Tak Jae Hoon approached a certain police officer “A,” who was in charge of a celebrity overseas gambling case in 2009. Lee Soo Geun and Tak Jae Hoon reportedly took “A” to a room salon in Gangnam and gave him around 20-30 million won (around $20,000-$30,000) as a bribe to keep “A” from releasing certain information from the investigation.
However, Lee Soo Geun’s agency denied these reports on December 2 by saying, “After checking with Lee Soo Geun, we have confirmed that those reports are not true. He is very bewildered that those kinds of reports were made. He is currently self-reflecting and is struggling.”
Previously, celebrities such as Lee Soo Geun, Tak Jae Hoon, Andy, Tony An, Boom and Yang Sae Hyung were indicted with illegal gambling.
