After days of suffering for many celebrities including Lee Da-hae because of that groundless rumor about them involved in a “Prostitution Ring”, prosecution did AT LAST stepped up to stop all this nonsense and did official statement today about the results of their investigation regarding that.
And they announced that Da-hae and other celebrities whose names been mentioned in that rumor had absolutely no connection to the investigation and are not one of the suspects.
OK, let me respond to that first before posting the full news!!!
Should I feel grateful and happy that you started to do your job? now after the harm is done and after you had already let this rumor spread around with not clearing this up earlier? And you actually stepped up now because of the strong response and legal action that those celebrities did and after you came under fire for leaking the investigation information to the press?
No, I am not and I am glad that my girl will still continue on with the lawsuit because surely there is some people need to be punished for the harm done for all those celebrities and wish that the fast response from our girl and her legal team and the evidence they submitted on the 13th help to catch those people as I read that it becomes harder to trace the origins of a rumor because service providers deletes chats on Kakao Talk after five days only.
So, now here is the full translation of the news
In the early morning of December 19, the Ansan office announced that they would be releasing the results of their investigation into a possible prostitution ring later in the afternoon. This comes after rumors began to propagate across the internet that named several celebrities and claimed that they were involved in this scandal. The celebrities involved in that rumor have vowed to take legal action against the people responsible for the rumors.
At 2PM on December 19, the Ansan office finally put the above rumors to bed by announcing to the press that the celebrities that were previously being mentioned in the rumors had absolutely no connections with this prostitution ring. An official from the prosecutor’s office has stated that ”I feel sorry for the people that have been affected by the rumors being spread through social networking services.” and that they have “Quickly concluded investigations so that they may recover quickly and to prevent any further harm.”
However this is not the end of the investigations as they have announced plans to charge 12 people with regards to the prostitution ring, three males and nine females. One of these people are being charged for acting as a broker for the ring while the rest is being charged for prostitution. The names of these people have not been revealed with the prosecution explaining that “Some of the women being charged have previously appeared on TV” but has also explained that ”It’s difficult to call them celebrities” because “It’s a bit ambiguous to call someone a celebrity when they appeared once on a cable channel program 3 years ago.”
Besides the group of 12, another eight individuals that were previously questioned in regards to this issue has been cleared of any charges. Reports so far state that the broker is a 30′s male that works in the entertainment industry as a stylist. The prosecution also states that sessions ranged in cost from approximately USD$3000 to more than USD$50,000 and that a few of the people involved also engaged in sessions with clients overseas.
Now I say to my girl, put this behind you and move forward and be proud for standing up for yourself and doing the right thing. I wish to hear good news about your comeback soon, Fighting ❤
