Independent Criminal Acts by Both Suspects

The police determined that ‘A’ and ‘B’ committed their offences independently. ‘A,’ aged 28, faces charges of extortion and attempted extortion, while ‘B,’ aged 29, is charged with extortion.

Extortion Details and Demands

‘A’ is accused of extorting 50 million KRW from Lee Sun Gyun after demanding 200 million KRW. She threatened to have ‘B’ arrested for drug use and to recover 300 million KRW given to ‘B.’ ‘B’ allegedly extorted 300 million KRW from Lee Sun-Kyun, claiming a hacker threatened to expose their relationship.

Backgrounds of the Accused
