In early September, Soo Hong’s brother was detained on suspicion of stealing an estimated 11.6 billion won (about $8.1 million) from Soo Hong. Later in the month, the prosecution was given the case involving Mr. Park, and ever since, an investigation has been ongoing. At the cross-examination as witnesses were Soo Hong’s father, who was likewise only known by his last name Park, and his sister-in-law Ms. Lee.

K-netizens were left perplexed and shocked after hearing the news. They congregated in an online forum to voice their outrage and condemn Soo Hong’s family.
