Park Min Young’s Agency Briefly Comments Regarding Her Dating Reports
Park Min Young has been swept up in dating rumors.
On September 28, Dispatch reported that the actress is in a relationship with a wealthy businessman “Kang.” According to Dispatch, Kang’s company Vidente is the largest shareholder of Bithumb Holdings, and Kang is tightly connected to Chorokbaem Media, which acquired Park Min Young’s agency Hook Entertainment.
Dispatch also brought up various allegations against Kang. His business card notes him as the chairman of Vidente, INBIOGEN, Bucket STUDIO, and Bithumb LIVE. However, his name is not publicly listed in relation to these companies. When Dispatch contacted the companies including Vidente and INBIOGEN and asked about him, they said, “Who is that?” and only mentioned the name of his sister, who is publicly known as the CEO of these companies. In addition to Kang’s companies, everything he owns including his home, cars, and golf course are not registered under his name.
From 2013 to 2014, Kang swindled about 3.5 billion won (approximately $2.4 million) and was indicted for fraud and document forging. In 2016, he received a 2 year and 6 month prison sentence with a probation period of three years. From 2014 to 2015, Kang helped financial corporation “A” with an acquisition and received private placement bonds worth 33.2 billion won (approximately $23 million) and then eventually loaned 9 billion won more, receiving a total of 42.2 billion won in private placement bonds (approximately $29.2 million). He still has about 12 billion won (approximately $8.3 million) of unpaid debt to “A.”
Kang was completely hidden from 2016 to 2020. Informants “C,” “D,” and “E,” commented regarding what occurred over those four years. “C” said that it is true that he hasn’t paid back his debt, while “D” shared, “He went in and out of Thailand often since 2016. He said he’s working on a resort business, but nothing has been confirmed.” “E” added, “Kang is acquainted with gangsters in Seongnam. He did something in Pattaya, but it is difficult for me to say more.”
