The actor’s full statement is available below.
Hello, I’m Choi Jung Won. I apologize for being the subject of disturbing articles about me, but yesterday’s YouTube video only conveyed the accusatory side of the story. (The wife) is not a former lover, but a family friend who I have known for a long time. I saw his profile on Kakao Talk (messaging app) so I asked him how he was doing and we met several times to eat and chat. When we met, we talked about the situation of our families, and in no case did anything worrying happen, as indicated in the articles. After that, the prosecutor sent countless threats and verbal abuse and tried to extort money from me. It is unfortunate that the media published a one-sided story. I will prove the truth in court and recover the losses I have suffered as a result of this incident. Many Thanks.
