When he expressed his intention to leave the company, Yong Joon Hyung revealed that he was threatened. He continued, “The president called me over to a bar, drunk, and threatened, ‘Are you really going to leave,’ as he shattered a liquor bottle.  Even at a young age, I really thought I could and might die that day.”

He confessed, “As soon as I went back to the dorms, I packed my belongings, threw away my cell phone, and ran for it.”
