Police Investigating Potential Involvement Of High-Ranking Officials In Alleged “Idol School” Manipulation
Police are continuing their search of potential voting manipulation for Mnet’s “Idol School.”
Earlier in October, the police conducted an intensified search and seizure of CJ ENM over suspicions of voting manipulation in Mnet’s survival shows. The search and seizure is said to have been conducted because something was discovered that needed to be confirmed after the September 21 search and seizure related to voting manipulation in “Idol School.”
On December 9, Lee Yong Pyo, the head of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency, stated, “We are continuing to investigate people and materials related to ‘Idol School’ that have been obtained through search and seizure. We are investigating high-ranking officials and their alleged involvement in it.”
Recently, eight people related to the “Produce 101” manipulation case were indicted for suspicions such as obstruction of business, fraud, breach of trust through bribery, and violations of the Improper Solicitation and Graft Act.
