The Lee Byung-hun blackmail trial to be held today

2015/01/14 | 706 views | Permalink | Source

Lee Ji-yun and Dahee's sentencing for blackmailing actor Lee Byung-hun is being held today.

The trial for blackmailing Lee Byung-hun of 5 billion won is being held at the Seocho Seoul Central Court. The truth is coming out at last.

Lee and Dahee blackmailed Lee Byung-hun into paying them 5 billion won for a video they filmed in a previous gathering they had. They were arrested and were sentenced to 3 years of prison.

Lee admitted to the threat but on the 16th of October, stated in trial that Lee Byung-hun was the first one to ask her to find a house and asked for intimacy. However, Lee Byung-hun's attorneys say, "This is an one-sided statement".

Then the text messages between Lee Byung-hun and Lee were revealed. Lee Byung-hun's management claimed, "We regret to tell you that the messages are false as they aren't based on any proof. We are looking to legal ways to cope with this".

Lee and Dahee's statement of apology might have some affect on the trial. They have been writing these statements since October when they were booked. Lee submitted her eleventh one on the 9th and Dahee submitted her eighteenth one on the 13th.

According to sources, the letters claim they regret what they did and they're asking for pardon.
