A police representative stated, “We concluded that Park Kyung had spread false information. We will forward the case to the prosecution this week, if early, or sometime next week at the latest.”
I believe a reminder that truth is not a defense for defamation in Korea applies here as well. Hell, even lawyers who seemed sympathetic to his cause said his case would be tough.
And that’s something Cube founder Hong Seung Sung alluded to recently.
Hello, this is Hong Seung Sung. I am writing for the first time in a while. Today’s post is about Park Kyung. I hope that Park Kyung will have strength. I think that under the pretext of viral marketing, competition will become more intense now. I think that this sort of thing must not happen again. The truth will come out someday.
This case is especially interesting because evidence of one of the artists Park Kyung named being involved was provided to authorities already and, perhaps most telling, people in the industry have come out in support of him.
Amusingly, this is becoming this gen’s #EverybodyKnows.
