Jin Goo's Agency Denies Any Involvement With Individual Indicted For Fraud

Jin Goo’s agency has released a statement stating that the actor has no relation to a recent fraud case.

Earlier last month on June 26, it was reported that an anonymous admin “A” of a mom cafe (an information-sharing online community for mothers) was arrested and charged for suspicions of violating the Act on the Aggravated Punishment, etc. of Specific Economic Crimes (fraud) and violation of the Act on the Regulation of Conducting Fund-Raising Business without Permission by the 5th Criminal Division of the Incheon District Prosecutors’ Office.

“A” was charged on the suspicions of stealing 14.2 billion won (approximately $11.3 million) while running the mom cafe since November 2019. A Korean media outlet reported that “A” has celebrity connections, one of them allegedly being Jin Goo.

On July 18, Jin Goo’s agency VARO Entertainment denied the claims, releasing the following official statement:

Hello. This is actor Jin Goo’s agency VARO Entertainment.

We want to inform you our stance which follows as below regarding today’s report about Jin Goo.

First, [Jin Goo] had overlapping acquaintances with the person who was arrested, so he only had a few encounters with them, but we would like to clarify that there were no business connections at all, let alone any financial transactions.

Regarding the fraud committed by the person involved in the case, Jin Goo also learned of the relevant incident through the press, and we have not received any contact from relevant authorities regarding this.

Please refrain from extrapolative interpretations as well as speculative reports and comments unrelated to the truth.

Thank you.
