Man Receives Jail Sentence For Death Threats Against Wang Suk Hyun
On May 16, Yang Chul Han, the chief judge of the Seoul Eastern District Court, sentenced “A” to ten months in prison.
In December of last year, “A” was arrested and indicted on charges of calling Wang Suk Hyun’s school and agency and spreading false information saying that the actor had stolen things and then threatening to kill him.
The court stated, “It is unavoidable for ‘A’ to receive severe punishment due to his obsession with a celebrity and threatening him. We also considered the victim suffering from severe fear.” They added, “‘A’ has a history of being treated for Asperger’s syndrome, but he is not believed to have been mentally challenged at the time of the crime.”
