Superstar K3‘s Chris Golightly has been sued for fraud and intimidation after allegedly not paying back a former girlfriend a total of around $28,000.
A representative from the Seoul Songpa Police Department revealed on April 20th, “Chris Golightly has been sued by ‘A’ for charges of fraud and intimidation.”
According to the police, Chris Golightly borrowed around 32,000,000 Won (around $28,000 USD) from A, which he never paid back. When A asked him to pay back the money she lent him, he sent her a text message saying, “If you sue me, I won’t let you get away with it“, thereby threatening and intimidating her.
The representative revealed, “He has admitted to borrowing money from her and sending her a text. However, he has said that he had no intentions of not paying her back, or to threaten her. The police determined that his actions were enough to warrant an arrest, but the court dismissed the application for an arrest warrant. The police are worried he could commit a retaliatory crime, so they are proceeding with the investigation with reinforcements. However, since he is an American citizen, if he leaves the country, the investigation cannot continue; therefore, they have placed a restriction on him from leaving the country.”
So in addition to being accused of pumping and dumping a bunch of groupies, now he’s being sued for not paying back money.
And so his troubles in Korea continue on.

I can see lending a friend money, but lending money to a significant other that you’re not married to? Yeah … that’s probably gonna end bad.
I’m honestly unsure how much of a threat that was as well, but he’s been a douche about his troubles the whole time, so it doesn’t surprise me.
The odd thing is that he hasn’t actually done anything that outlandishly egregious. So why does this get so much media coverage? Well, two things:
1) It’s basically the Korean establishment sending the message to Korean girls that they shouldn’t fuck foreigners. Like a “look what happens when you have sex with these stupid fucks” message. I mean, seriously, if that wasn’t the issue, why is this even a story?
2) Chris Golightly has gone out of his way to show Korea that a lot of the foreigners in their country are … well … douches. I mean, let’s be fair to Korea here, if you’ve ever read one of the dime-a-dozen English Teacher/Military Personnel blogs, you’d know that a lot of the foreigners in Korea are assholes just there: 1) for pussy 2) because of greed 3) against their will.
Given that, I’m split. It would be nice if the Korean media didn’t target him specifically because he’s a foreigner, but it would also be nice if foreigners in Korea didn’t give the Korean media so much ammunition to pursue this agenda.
