After months of legal battles, prosecution has demanded model Lee Ji Yeon and GLAM’s Dahee to serve a 3-year sentence for blackmailing Lee Byung Hun earlier this year.
On the afternoon of December 16th, Lee Ji Yeon and Dahee attended the third court trial in Seoul. The mutual friend who introduced these two to Lee Byung Hun did not stand as witness on the third as well as the second trial.
Prosector concluded, “The defendants are guilty of blackmailing the victim (Lee Byung Hun) after approaching him for their target of monetary extortions in the first place. Although it was only an attempt, the defendants use of privately obtained video footage of the victim to attempt to extort $5 million is guilty of crime,” and demanded a 3-year sentence for Lee Ji Yeon and Dahee.
Accordingly, Lee Ji Yeon and Dahee’s representing attorney emphasized that it was not intentionally planned and supported that, “If it was planned from the beginning, Dahee would have used a false name. Also, they could have recorded a video footage, rather than recording private talks.”
Meanwhile, Lee Byung Hun and his wife and actress Lee Min Jung, have been spotted departing to Los Angeles together, on December 6th, due to Lee Byung Hun’s schedules in the United States. Currently, the actor is preparing on promoting his upcoming Hollywood film, Terminator 5: Genisys.
