Social media stirs, Park Min Young has been banned from leaving the country and summoned for investigation
On February 14, Korean media reported that the Financial Investigation Division 2 of the Seoul Southern District Prosecutor’s Office (Chief Prosecutor Chae Hee Man) summoned Park Min Young for being related to Kang Jong Hyun. owner of the Bithumb virtual exchange. Kang Jong Hyun was arrested a few days earlier for manipulating stock prices and embezzlement, according to MBN.
Prosecutors suspect Mr. Kang and employees of stealing money from companies such as Vident, Inbiogen, Bucket Studio and issuing convertible bonds (CBs), then raising the stock price to gain illicit profits. In it, a bond transaction was made under the name of Park Min Young and had a profit of hundreds of millions of dollars.
During the meeting with the prosecutor on February 13, Park Min Young denied that she was involved in the above transaction. Prosecutors are banning Park Min Young from leaving Korea and considering whether to continue summoning her.
On February 15, Hook Entertainment released an official statement about this incident, “We would like to clarify some information published on February 14 that Park Min Young was arrested by the police. summoned for questioning and she was banned from leaving Korea.In fact, Park Min Young was summoned on February 13 as a mere witness in the current investigation. The police didn’t forbid her to go abroad either.”
After all, hopefully the storm will pass soon and Park Min Young will really have nothing to do with the ex-boyfriend’s series of crimes. Otherwise, her “secretary Kim” will be the next name to fall into the scene of ruining her career because of the scandal.
