A source from the police has shared an update on the case surrounding Choi Joon Hee and her grandmother.
In August, Choi Joon Hee, the daughter of late actress Choi Jin Shil, uploaded shocking accounts on social media about the difficulties she endured while living with her maternal grandmother. After losing her mother, father, and uncle to suicide, she and her brother had been raised by their maternal grandmother.
This led to the police opening an official investigation into the child abuse allegations. Choi Joon Hee also voluntarily admitted herself into a hospital, was discharged after a three-day stay, and was reported to be staying with a close family friend instead of her maternal grandmother.
On September 12, a source from the Seocho Police Department revealed that investigations have been completed and that they were unable to find anything suspicious about Choi Joon Hee’s grandmother in regards to child abuse.
They said that after analyzing the statements of Choi Joon Hee, her brother Choi Hwan Hee, and people close to the family, it would be difficult to view the case as child abuse.
