Microdot's uncle reveals he was also scammed into a personal guarantee by Microdot's parents

misc.

It's been revealed that Microdot's uncle was also scammed into signing a personal guarantee by the rapper's parents, according to reports on November 23. 



Currently, police have reopened a fraud case involving rapper Microdot's parents, who have been accused of scamming various neighbors and acquaintances for an amount of up to 2 billion KRW (~ 1.8 million USD), then fleeing to New Zealand, some time in 1998.

One media outlet stated that Microdot's uncle Shin Hyung Woong also signed a guarantee with his younger brother, Microdot's father, for an amount of 2 million KRW (~ 176,000 USD). Shin added, "At the time, my younger brother got rid of his farm, made up of over 80 dairy cows, and fled the country overnight. Many people called me afterward claiming that they gave him money... asking that I repay them, since I am his older brother." 

However, Shin alleged that the reported fraud amount surpassing 2 billion KRW has been over-exaggerated by the media. He said, "It was among close people, lending amounts like 1 million KRW (~ 900 USD) or 10 million KRW (~ 9,000 USD) due to the fact that they were close acquaintances, but [the amount] has been falsely blown up..."

Meanwhile, in another report, it was revealed that Microdot will likely not be legally responsible for any of his parents' debt amounts, as projected by finance experts. Nonetheless, observing netizens are still arguing that the son must pay the debt owed by his parents. Stay tuned for updates.

As long as Microdot's parents are alive and working they should pay the debit back. Not Microdot nor his uncle are responsible for what their parents did.

Why the fuck should Microdot pay a goddamn cent to anyone? If I was him I'd come out in a press conference, thank his fans for supporting him during this difficult time, and then tell the people who are calling for him to repay the debt to fuck off. in those exact words.

Um no he should not, it had nothing to do with him, his parents should made to pay back everything that they borrowed.

I mean, he can pay if he wants to simply because they are his parents. I probably would, but I would also make them go to the people they hurt and apologize in person. However, Microdot nor his brother are in no way obliged to do so. Kids should not suffer for sins of their parents.

F Off no children have to pay there parents debts off, just because someone becomes popular, they think they can go get money of them, the parents have to pay back their own money, an like the uncle said it was amongst close friends and family an aint as much as they say it is, they should have sorted that shit out long ago, why come forward again trying to get money from the son who they think has that money to pay them back, it wasnt him who borrowed it , he was only a small child at the time, now heres another matter, Microdot wasnt an only child how come everything is getting landed onto him, he was the youngest child

People do not spread rumours. If Microdot's parents did something wrong they are responsible not Microdot. Let this lawsuit be heard in a civil court room. All parties will have their time to state their case. There is no reason Microdot should have to hear about this outside of court. Stop running a kangaroo court on the internet.

What people are mad about is that his (financial) upbringing is based on a platform that is based on a crime.

But we don't know what his financial upbringing was like, it could be that his parents scammed people out of money to pay of debt. The brother said they owned a farm and then sold it all of and disappeared. Knowing that they had a farm makes it most likely that they couldn't afford to have it anymore and accumulated debt since it's expensive to own a farm.

These netizens telling him that he has to pay up, are stupid. He didn't commit the crime. Are they dense? Why would he have to owe what his parents owe? It was their scam and they duped all of those with their own accord. Microdot doesn't owe a cent to any of the victims. Stop saying he has to pay up. You can sue him all you want, but the courts will definitely not see him be connected to the crime. He was a kid when it all happened. And why are these netizens acting like they're the ones who was scammed and asking for a payment? The fuck? They're asking for attention and blaming Microdot for everything.

MICRODOT's *PARENTS* should NOT return to S.KOREA by choice. Which, supposedly, the PARENTS plan to do that, once they get their PASSPORTS 'in order' to do it. There is an active POLICE INVESTIGATION of them taking place. The PARENTS could be ARRESTED and put in JAIL in S.KOREA. IF the PARENTS want to 'do anything' about all of it (their debt controversy), they should do it while being physically located in NZ nation (where they now reside). Just instead, have MICRODOT and maybe some hired LAWYER try to MONEY 'settle' the 'claims' as best that can be done. WHY would the PARENTS want to be in S.KOREA, and physically NEAR to those who clearly do NOT like them much at this point? Stay in NZ nation ; be safer! ... ;)

That red alert that was filed on them is to arrest and bring them back to Korea anyway, so them staying in NZ is NOT a good idea. What got me scratching my head is that the police station that is task to investigate this didnt even know they were tasks to do so and didnt even know that the Shin's are palnning to come and resolve this matter.

IF that the *PARENTS* are NZ nation CITIZENS, *then* it would SEEM to me that to DEPORT them (force a RETURN to S.KOREA) would be DIFFICULT. But if NOT citizens of NZ nation, THEN the PARENTS probably do NEED to return to S.KOREA. But even then, NOT sure that I would return EASILY to S.KOREA. I would wait for them to make it *official* that I was being FORCED to return to S.KOREA ... ;) ... So again, IF I was the PARENTS, I would TRY to stay in NZ nation as long as I could do that. Which might NOT be very long, from what you say it ... ;) ... NOT to give these PARENTS any ideas, but there are some nations like SWITZERLAND, where DEPORTING someone is NOT an easy task at all ... ;) ... (Trolling) ... WONDERING if there is a 'Slow Boat' to EAST TIMOR (nation) ??? ... ;)
