And so the constant back and forth continues in relation to the domestic assault that CCTV footage revealed of comedian-turned-clergyman Seo Se Won attacking his wife Seo Jung Hee in the elevator last year.
Rather than turning to their child as the middleman (i.e. "John, can you tell your mother I did not assault her in the elevator," "John, can you tell your father the CCTV does not lie"), they are turning to the media for their constant back and forth defense.
On August 1, JTBC's 'Entertainment Exclusive' covered this situation. Seo Jung Hee recently gave a detailed step-by-step breakdown of the incident, "My husband suddenly mounted my stomach. He choked my neck using two hands. It felt like my eyeballs were going to pop out. I put my two hands together, could not speak, and just begged him, begged him to save me."
As a response Seo Se Won had said, "The revealed CCTV footage was edited." A person who had worked with Seo Se Won for ten years said, "There are a lot of parts that differ in truth from the reported content. I don't know why, but I think the CCTV footage was edited."
Seo Jung Hee now responded, "It's common sense; who would fabricate this? That's the original footage the police secured and took with them after the incident."
Currently, the legal circles have acknowledged Seo Se Won's assault based on the CCTV video and issued a restraining order.
