As previously reported, Shoo is under investigation for borrowing 600 million KRW (~ $532,000 USD) for gambling, and on August 9, the plaintiffs released a statement through their lawyer Park Hee Jung. The plaintiffs' rep stated, "Since mid-June, Shoo blocked contact with the plaintiffs, and we haven't been able to contact her at all since then. Even after the due date for her payments, we couldn't contact her."
The statement continued, "Shoo said through her lawyers that she was scammed by the plaintiffs and slandered them. This is not true. After they saw the news reports, they were deeply hurt. Paradise Casino is a business that runs by the law, so it's not a place where people can scam someone. The plaintiffs are regular people who are not connected with casinos. Because of Shoo's pleas, the plaintiffs lent her money multiple times. They lent her money believing she would eventually pay them back and that she was capable of returning the money. As victims of a crimes, they have the right to file lawsuits. If she continues to slander them, we'll take additional legal action."
Stay tuned for updates on the case.
