Rain's side reveals intention to publicize recording of conversation with accuser family, if they continue to defame Rain's family

Rain

Singer/actor Rain's side has released a firm statement in response to the ongoing controversy surrounding an accuser family, who claims that Rain's mother borrowed money from them and failed to pay off the debt. 


Rain's side stated on November 30, "We cannot respond in person to every single false accusation made by the family of the accuser, and so we declare that if the false accusations continue, we plan on publicizing a portion of the recorded conversation [from Rain's side meeting up with the accuser family earlier this week], then handing over the full recording file to police for investigation." 



Back on November 27, Rain's mother was accused of borrowing money from the neighboring owner of a business without returning the debt back. Rain's company as well as Rain's father attempted to meet with the family of the accuser, in order to settle the matter peacefully. However, currently, the accuser family has participated in media interviews accusing Rain's side of threatening them. 

Rain's side replied to the threat accusations as follows: "Our side never threatened the accuser side by any means during our meeting on November 27, but only conversed for approximately an hour and 30 minutes in order to fully confirm the truth behind the accusations and resolve the issue. In addition to a full recording of the meeting conversation, we also have full recordings of phone conversations with the accuser family." 

Regarding a finance statement which the accuser family revealed online recently against Rain's mother, Rain's side stressed, "The one-sided financial statement that the accuser family revealed is not the equivalent of a bond of debt... If we can see document evidence of a true bond of debt containing the accused amount, then we will repay the debt in full." Furthermore, Rain's side argued that the accuser family's financial account noted debt amounts owed by Rain's mother from 1988 - 2004, when Rain's mother passed away from illness in 2000. 

Finally, Rain's side revealed, "We have tried our best to resolve the issue as smoothly as possible after discovering reports of the original accusations, but the accuser side has refused to stop their malicious interviews, false accusations, and mocking not only Rain's late mother but also the artist and his family. This does not exemplify reasonable cooperation or proper duty to present legal evidence regarding the case."

It seems that the accuser's side is continuing to demand debt payment amounting to 100 million KRW (~ 88,7000 USD), which Rain's side argues is four times the amount indicated in the accuser's original online post.

Now THIS is the correct way for celebrities on how to respond to fraud allegations about your parents. Do exactly what Rain did.

Rain fighting! Hopefully this is a warning signal for all those who try to get money out of celebs by making false accusation against family members. After accusing each and any celebrity of sexual assault, now it´s scam.

Isn't this considered black mailing? I mean when you say "if yo don't stop I'll reveal recordings to the media"... That sound like black mailing.. I'm on Rain's side, just wondering if this is legal...

It’s not really blackmailing if the accuser is lying to the medias, and they would publish just a part of it to state the truth.

Blackmailing means to publish something unless you pay them to buy their silence, here we can more talk about threats.

No, it's not blackmailing. It's a statement warning them to stop and saying that Rain can make life a living hell for them. Blackmail is when information is used to extort money or influence for the blackmailers' advantage. He just wants them to stop, period. Nothing more than that.

It's more like a threat / warning since it was done publicly.
If it was said privately/secretly to the accuser then the accuser can argue blackmailing.
