On the 5th, YouTuber Lee Jin-ho, who is a former journalist, revealed the contents of his conversation with lawyer Bae Geun-jo of the law firm “Everyone’s Corporation”, saying “the fine was severe. The judge saw the crime negatively. Kim Sae-ron claimed to have a difficult financial situation, but I don’t think it was really true. If it had happened to an ordinary person, I don’t think the fine would have exceeded 20 million won. I think the amount includes a lesser charge,” expressing his opinion on the 20 million won fine imposed on Kim Sae-ron.

During the conversation, Lee Jin-ho revealed that he consulted with lawyer Bae Geun-jo about the reasons for the controversy surrounding Kim Sae-ron, including “drinking alcohol with BJ and idol members after the drunk driving accident”, “making a flyer for her own birthday party two months later”, “posting a video of herself working part-time while claiming to be in financial difficulty”, and “playing poker at a Hold’em bar.”

Lee Jin-ho explained, “Regarding the three among these issues: making a flyer for her own birthday party, playing poker, and an employer stating that Kim Sae-ron had not worked, there is evidence. The ‘Kim Sae-ron financial difficulty explanation’ came out around mid-last year. At that time, I think it was because she had to pay for things like the settlement with the victims, company penalty fees, etc.”

Lastly, Lee Jin-ho added, “Kim Sae-ron is currently the only one in her family who is making proper money. Her mother doesn’t work, and her father is involved in trading with China, but suffered a direct hit due to COVID-19. It is true that she is in a difficult situation at the moment.”
