[Daily Economy Star Today , Reporter Lee Da Gyeom]
The (S.K) Prosecution requested a fine of (S.K) 10 Million Won ($8,800 USD) from the former YG Entertainment representative producer YANG HYUN SUK, Age 51, who is accused of 'Won Jeong Bak' (S.K illegal gambling activity). In the final statement, former CEO Yang (PAPA YANG) asked for an appointment saying that he would not repeat the same mistake.
At 2pm on the Oct. 28th, the second trial date of YG Entertainment's representative producer YANG HYUN SUK, who was charged with gambling at the hearing of the Seoul Western District Law Criminal 9-only (Judge Park Soo-hyun), was held. The former CEO Yang departed for a total of 7 times from July 2015 to January 2019, and is accused of gambling a total of $335,460 USDollars (approximately 388 million won) worth of money at a casino in Las Vegas in the United States.
Previously, the police who investigated Yang's former representatives sent the prosecution opinion on the charges of habitual gambling and sent it to the prosecution, but the Seoul West District Prosecutors' Office reported that habitual gambling was not established, taking into account precedents and the number of gambling, and filed a brief prosecution last May for simple gambling charges. .
However, the Court in charge of the case considered it inappropriate to judge Yang's allegations of gambling based on the contents of the case, and submitted it to a formal trial. At the first trial held in September, a written opinion was requested on the charges of habitual gambling, which was rejected during the prosecution.
In this regard, lawyer (for) YANG HYUN SUK said, “As it was revealed in the course of the police investigation, YANG HYUN SUK did *not* conspire (illegally) with SEUNGRI (ex-BIG BANG member), prostitution, or fanfare. YG's overseas subsidiary in the United States was established for artists' overseas activities, and was operated very normally. It was clear through the investigation process that there was no illegal activity related to prostitution and no concealment of property.”
“Defendants visited Las Vegas for the purpose of working and (enjoying) rewarding vacations for their artists, despite playing games (*gambling*) 2-3 hours a day in their spare time. The total amount of the defendants playing the game (*gambling*) is large, but if you consider it per person, it is not a large amount. When these things are put together, it is judged that the (*gambling*) guilt is not heavy. However, the defendants acknowledge and reflect on the part that violates the (*S.K Gambling*) law.”
The Prosecution also expressed its opinion. The Prosecution said, “At the beginning, the (S.K) police sent them for habitual gambling (a worse offense), but the Investigative Prosecutors prosecuted them as simple gambling. The defendants did not have a history of gambling crimes, and because they visited Las Vegas with family and company officials, it is difficult to say that they visited for the purpose of (*only*) gambling. Also, gambling funds (amount of money gambling wagered) are not large if you look at them individually. By combining these circumstances, we (decided that they) were charged with simple gambling.”
In response, the Judge asked, "Are you not considering changing the complaint?", and the Prosecution replied, "Yes." At the same time, the Prosecution said, “There is no similar power, but we considered the number of gamblings, amount, and duration. Please sentence the accused YANG HYUN SUK to a fine of ($8,800 USD) 10 Million Won (S.K).”
YANG HYUN SUK, who wore a black suit and attended the trial, calmly spoke out in the final statement. YANG HYUN SUK said, “I apologize for causing concern to all of you because of my non-examination (lack of care ?). I am very seriously reflecting, and I will never make the same (*gambling*) mistakes again. I would like to ask for your (proper consideration in sentencing), respected (Court) Judge.”
The date of selection for the charges of YANG HYUN SUK and 'Won Jeong Bak' (illegal gambling) is November 27.
Meanwhile, former CEO Yang has been surrounded by suspicion of prostitution and suspicion of 'Won Jeong-Bak' (possible *illegal* gambling activity) due to the butterfly effect ('spill over') of the 'Burning Sun (Club) Incident' involving SEUNGRI, a former (YGe Agency) BIG BANG group member, last year. The charges of prostitution (for PAPA YANG) were concluded without charges, but the charges of gambling were admitted and handed over to trial.
In addition, the former CEO PAPA YANG has been investigated for suspicion of possible *illegal* intimidation and *interference* in an ACTIVE POLICE INVESTIGATION of YGe Artist B.I , past IKON member , (involving illegal drug usage). And possibly *threatening* HAN SEO HEE (at the time, a female romance interest of male T.O.P = BIG BANG member still), a former K-pop Idol TRAINEE. Via a PAPA YANG *PERSONAL MEETING* with HAN SEO HEE located at the YG Entertainment (H.Q) office building. Where HAN SEO HEE's *POLICE STATEMENTS* to INVESTIGATORS about the drug investigation of iKON's former member B.I. were *possibly* discussed.
