Hara and ex-boyfriend Choi both indicted, forwarded to prosecution for trial

Hara

It's been reported that former KARA member Hara and her ex-boyfriend Choi Jong Bum have both been indicted by the police as a result of their complete investigation. 



Choi Jong Bum has been indicted of criminal charges including physical assault, threatening and bribery, forced coercion, property damage, and violation of sexual harassment laws; the investigation newly revealed information that Choi took secret photos of Hara without permission and also broke Hara's door during a separate argument, a month before their breakup. On the other hand, Hara has been indicted of physical assault for causing Choi bodily harm. 

The two individuals will be forwarded to prosecution for trial within this week.

Hara and Choi Jong Bum's case began back on the early morning of September 13, as the two became involved in a physical altercation which led to threatening, bribery, force of action, and more.

Him thinking that because he had revenge porn he was going to use it to blackmail her into destroying her career and make himself look the victim, trying to propel his career and public image, only to reveal that he's the one that's human garbage in the entire situation is truly karma at its finest.

You have to understand the laws in korea. Her charge recognizes her self-defense the problem is that his wounds took 3 weeks to heal and therefor the police had to charge her with bodily harm because their laws says that self-defense that leaves wounds for that long is considered to be over the line of what is acceptable for self-defense. I know it sounds dumb, and it is completely UNFAIR but that's really the only reason why they are charging her. Sadly.

Theres no prove it's just he says she say when it comes to who hitting who first. I would still consider her action self defence. If someone attacking me and won't get the fk out then what can I do. No way standing still to get bash. It's only right to fight back.

He is a disgusting human being. I would loose it if I had to deal with a piece of work like that. She is lucky to have escaped him, pitty the emotional scars are ones that sometimes never mends. How can women be mistreated so poorly in Korea and be prosecuted for reacting under the pressure of a despicable man?

I would GUESS that HARA will end up paying a MONEY FINE of LESS than $5000 USD on it. The reality is that HARA has created MONEY EXPENSE and TIME WORKED for POLICE and PROSECUTOR by the manner in which she 'parted ways' with her 'illustrious hairball' ex-BF CHOI. When HARA had her BROKEN DOOR event (a previous one) with CHOI ; is when she SHOULD have realized to END their relationship with a 'clean break' as best she could. Meaning CHOI does NOT contact HARA and never goes near her again. Sadly, HARA *chose* to continue the relationship.

"We have a (HARA likely nude) picture taken (by ex-BF CHOI) without consent" ; Claim Police ;
And so, Ex-BF CHOI will be PROSECUTED under the 'Special Law on Sexual Violence'
(Using GOOGLE Translate for English on the above URL ; see next below)
It is stated (approximately) as follows by the PROSECUTOR (Begin) ... -->
"(Hara's ex-BF) Choi was sued for injury, intimidation, coercion and sexual violence in Article 14-2 of the Special Law on Sexual Violence ... Article 1 of the Special Act on Sexual Abuse (Law) states that it was filmed without consent, and Article 2 states that even if agreed, it was disseminated or reported." ...

Regarding the suspicion of 'revenge pornography' that was a problem (in dispute), the PROSECUTOR said -->
"There is (*NOW* no doubt) that there WAS dissemination (distribution of Hara photos by Choi to OTHERS), and the additional photographs (of Hara) were a problem that Hara did NOT know (of these secret photos existing).
Police said the (photographic) images transmitted through 'KakaoTalk Messages' (Phone Device APP) are "difficult to see because they are part of the (written material) sentences (sent) to the (other) party." ... <-- (End)

In other words, the PROSECUTOR is stating that POLICE found additional *new* (likely nude) PHOTOS of HARA, taken by CHOI in a SECRET manner. And that those HARA PHOTOS were (file attached) 'embedded' in 'KakaoTalk Messages' that CHOI did send them digitally via the Internet to OTHER people ... Obviously, HARA had no idea on this aspect of CHOI's behavior toward her ... So, the PROSECUTOR seems to be saying (in his view), that they NOW have CHOI in a 'slam dunk' GUILTY situation based on SOLID EVIDENCE.

My guess is that HARA will have to 'own up' in (JUDGE) COURT to what she did it. And then will get PROBATION (2 Years) and pay a MONEY FINE on this matter. With (BigBang) TOP (MARIJUANA usage), that is what happened, a PROBATION time (2 years) and MONEY FINE paid ...

As far as a KARA5 member new MV release (or even Live Performance), that has YET to happen even in a DUO (two KARA5 members) situation. The 'best chance' of a DUO MV might be say (KARA5) JIYOUNG and HARA doing some kind of MV release in JAPAN. But, to be honest, I would be AMAZED on that. JIYOUNG has a fairly successful SOLO situation going for herself in JAPAN now.

This is just a GUESS on this ; NO IDEA if true ; here goes. I have a feeling that the PROSECUTOR is actually looking to do some kind of PLEA DEAL with ex-BF CHOI in particular. In other words, CHOI pleads GUILTY to some LESSER charges. MAYBE that MIGHT include some JAIL time ; but REDUCED time. But also, CHOI agrees to like 'promise' that the PRIVATE VIDEO (HARA and him) is NOT going to 'appear' somehow in PUBLIC in the future. In other words, CHOI does TELL them (PROSECUTORS) of EVERYONE that MIGHT have gotten access to that VIDEO. And also his SECRET PRIVATE PHOTOS that he took them. THEN, if CHOI does that (complete cooperation with PROSECUTOR on WHERE all that the VIDEO might be), THEN he gets the REDUCED punishment PLEA DEAL. And IF in the future, the VIDEO appears, THEN CHOI gets a Phone Call from POLICE, and he gets to do some REAL LONG TERM JAIL TIME over it (the PRIVATE VIDEO being disclosed). CHOI has apparently taken these SECRET PRIVATE PHOTOS of HARA too. To me, ex-BF CHOI is a real 'bad news' TURD of a person.

This 'HARA and ex-BF CHOI' situation is NOT going to be one that is settled in an 'Out of Court' manner now ; is my GUESS on it. One gets the feeling that the PROSECUTOR wants a (JUDGE) COURT RECORD situation on however this does 'close out' in the future.

I am UNCLEAR that HARA will be 'long run' damaged that much on this ex-BF CHOI situation. A *lot* depends on IF that the PRIVATE VIDEO of them does 'leak out' ; and the exact contents of that Video. And quite a bit of HARA's Pop Music visibility is JAPAN based ; as KARA Group was POPULAR there. JAPAN males care NOT much about HARA's ex-BF being 'bad news' for her. In fact, overall, this might actually enhance HARA's visibility ; even in S.KOREA ... How about a K-TV Talk Show ; Hosted by HARA ; titled "FIGHTING BACK!" ... A *lot* of S.KOREANS would just 'need' to 'tune in' and view (HARA) the 'damaged goods' ; right? ... ;)

The Ex-BF CHOI charges seem *more* serious in nature. One gets the feeling that the PROSECUTOR would like to see CHOI do some JAIL time in the end ... HARA should have realized, due to the PRIOR event (30 days earlier) where her DOOR got broken, that she needed to DUMP CHOI in a 'clean break' manner. BEFORE this current TRIAL event happened.
