PD of '1 Night and 2 Days' suspected of remaining silent during Cha Tae Hyun and Kim Jun Ho's illegal golf gambling

AKP STAFF

The main PD of '1 Night and 2 Days' has been held accountable for remaining as an idle spectator for illegal gambling activities.

On March 16 KST, KBS revealed that the cast members of the variety program, including Cha Tae Hyun, Kim Jun Ho, and Jung Joon Younghave partaken in illegal golfing activities with exorbitant wagers that amount up to millions of KRW. According to the initial report, a handful of cast members have uploaded photos and shared details of the money they won from the gambling via 'KakaoTalk' chatrooms.

The chatrooms had been initially discovered from Jung Joon Young's phone, which remains under digital forensic investigation by the police in regards to previous allegations. The chatroom has since been traced back to other celebrities as well, including the cast and the PD of '1 Night and 2 Days'. It is suspected that the actual golfing had taken place in Thailand. 

So far, the PD of '1 Night and 2 Days' has left KBS, and Cha Tae Hyun and Kim Jun Ho have not yet responded to the situation.

In the case of illegal golf gambling, the charged persons could be fined up to 10 million KRW, while evidence of habitual gambling could increase the penalty up to 20 million KRW with up to 3 years of imprisonment. 

Stay tuned for updates.

Do not export your cultural relativism to Korea.

What these men did is a crime in Korea whether or not you think it should be a crime.


The problem with illegal gambling is the large amounts of money that gets circulated while being totally unregulated by any government entity which makes it a prime opportunity for money laundering.


If you don't know what money laundering is, it's the concealment as to the origin of illegally obtained money such as through theft, drug dealing, extortion, prostitution, fraud etc.


Say for example Seungri makes 100,000,000 Won from his human trafficking activities. He cant just starting spending that money because the authorities will ask where he got so much money and since bills can be tracked with their unique ID's this becomes a liability for Seungri. However if he goes to an unregulated and therefore un-tracked gambling facility, he can change in his cash for chips, gamble whatever he feels like gambling and save it in a "save bank" hidden from Korean view or cash out and get a new set of bills. Since the transactions arent tracked by any regulatory agency, the chain of custody is interrupted and therefore the 100,000,000 won Seungri made from his human trafficking is now "clean", hence the term "money laundering".


So yes, illegal gambling is a huge deal because of its operation and use by organized crime.
