A testimony emerged that Yang Hyun-suk, the former CEO of YG Entertainment, threatened singer trainee A.
On the 18th, Yang Hyun-suk, former CEO of YG Entertainment, attended the third trial on charges such as threats of retaliation under the Act on Aggravated Punishment for Specific Crimes held at the 23rd Criminal Settlement Division of the Seoul Central District Court (Chief Judge Cho Byeong-gu).
At the third trial, Mr. A, who claimed to have been threatened by Yang Hyun-suk, attended as a witness.
The prosecution said to Mr. A, “The defendant said to the witness, ‘I am a person who can see all the statements of evidence. You are in the entertainment industry, but it is not a matter of killing one of you. Is it true?” asked, Mr. A answered yes.
Currently, former CEO Yang is accused of persuading and threatening A in order to stop the investigation when Mr.
Person A mentioned B.I during a drug-related investigation in 2016. Afterwards, he overturned that B.I had never used drugs.
In this regard, Mr. A revealed that he overturned his statement under external pressure from YG. Accordingly, the ACRC took the results of the investigation and handed over four people, including B.I and Yang Hyun-suk, to trial.
B.I was sentenced to 3 years in prison and 4 years of probation for buying cannabis and LSD, a type of drug, in 2021 and using some of them (violation of the Narcotics Control Act, etc.).
On the other hand, on this day, Yang Hyun-suk caused controversy by appearing in front of reporters without a mask.
The Central Disaster and Safety Countermeasures Headquarters announced on the 18th that social distancing would be completely lifted, but whether to wear a mask or not will be decided after two weeks of discussion.
