A 30-year old Ms. Kim has been arrested and charged for blackmailing JYJ‘s Yoochun.
The Supreme Prosecutors’ Office‘s representative revealed that the woman claimed to possess private information from Yoochun’s mobile phone and demanded 100 million won (around $93,600) to stop her from releasing them. According to local media, Kim found Yoochun’s phone in Cheongdamdong on February 25th.
The woman had started to threaten the singer’s agency, C-JeS Entertainment, saying that “disclosing Yoochun’s private photos from the phone will make a buzz around town.”
The agency immediately reported the case to the police on February 26th. C-JeS Entertainment arranged a meeting with Kim at a coffee shop in Samseong-dong in order to pay her. However, undercover police officers were also present at the meeting.
C-JeS Entertainment asked fans to continue their support for Yoochun.
