Entertainer Lee Sang-min explained about the accusation over the fraud worth 1.3 billion won.
On the 24th, Dmost Entertainment said through an official statement, "Lee Sang-min had been an advertising model for OO construction company and another company related to cars, a total of two enterprises after signing a contract. Since then, he faithfully carried out all the duties in the contract, such as advertising, promotion, appearing in the entertainment broadcasting program that was produced by the owner of the advertisement, all of which were part of the condition of the contract," explaining the situation.
“Nevertheless, Lee Sang-min couldn’t get paid for the appearance fee of that program at that time. On the contrary, he is the victim. It is possible to verify the truth of this incident with the contract and other materials,” they added.
Regarding the opinion that the accuser A claims, the agency said “The argument that Lee Sang-min mediated a loan is totally false. Nothing is relevant to Lee Sang-min who has been repaying his debt from 2006 with responsibility and what the accuser A said is totally groundless and Lee Sang-min has nothing to do with this incident.”
In addition, the agency said “Our company finds it very unfortunate that Lee Sang-min who has lived very faithfully to repay the debt for decades has become a victim of false news so we are going to take strong action by accusing of libel and spreading false news, judging that they abused the fact that Lee Sang-min is an entertainer who is attracting attention from the public and defamed him.”
“We will firmly take strong action against any libel or false news online regarding this without any amicable management,” they added.
Meanwhile, the accuser A filed a complaint with Seoul Central District Prosecutor's Office on the 23rd, arguing that Lee Sang-min swindled about 1.3 billion won.
