Park Jin Young is being accused of belonging to the Salvation sect cult. The cult is hated across South Korea, for their involvement in the Sewol ferry disaster and more.
In response to Dispatch’s report (see article above for full details), JYP released a letter on his Instagram. Full translation below.
“This is a Salvation Sect?
I rented this place with my own money for a Bible study session. Is this what you call a Salvation Sect?
100 people came to hear my lecture and a few “Salvation Sect” members were in the audience because they wanted to hear my lecture. Is this a Salvation Sect meeting?
Am I really part of the Salvation Sect when I have no ties whatsoever to the businesses of the “Salvation Sect” personally or through JYP Entertainment?
How will you ever take responsibility for the damage you’re causing to me and our company by releasing such articles without any confirmation?
Since 4 years ago, I’ve been getting together with a friend twice a week to have Bible study and now that meeting has grown to about 30 people. But you say that this is a “Salvation Sect” meeting?
I’ll post my testimony so please take a look at it carefully. If there is any issue with the content in terms of legality or morality, then your reports are legitimate but if there isn’t, you will be liable for all damage it has caused.”
