Singer Maybee dedicates apologetic letter via SNS, revealing that she has come to a settlement with her mother's debtor


On April 19, singer/composer Maybee took to her Instagram to dedicate an apologetic letter to her fans, family, friends, etc.

Previously, it was reported that Maybee's mother owed lender 'A' an amount of approximately 50 million KRW (~ $44,166.00 USD), unpaid since 2015. Then, in a legal dispute between 'A' and Maybee in September of last year, the court ruled that there was not enough evidence to prove that Maybee could be held responsible for the debut amount. After this dispute, Maybee still apologized to 'A' and assured that 'A' would be able to receive the debt payment from her mother; however, as of this past April 17, the promise was allegedly not kept. 

In her Instagram letter, Maybee revealed, "It was a difficult process to work out each of the details with my family. It is not true that the amount my mother borrowed was used for my marriage funds. I was not aware of what happened regarding this matter until now, but this is also my fault for not looking after my family."

She continued, "Today, I met with the victim and resolved all issues. I also relayed my apologies. I'm sorry to all who cheered me on and showed me their love. I can't hide my feelings of apology toward my husband and son. From here on, I will show that I am working hard to live honestly." 

Meanwhile, Maybee and her husband/actor Yoon Sang Hyun are currently appearing on 'Sam Bed, Different Dreams' season 2.

Maybee's situation notwithstanding, is scamming really this mainstream in Korea? Do people hate their friends and neighbors so much that they'll just outright steal from them, create a hardship for them, and then lie to their faces when they ask to be repaid?

I don't know a single person who has this problem yet in Korea it's epidemic to the point that a #debttoo movement was needed to start to get people to pay up.

Never lend anyone to money. Not to your coworkers, not to your family, not to your partner. Most times you won't get paid back and they'll blame you for coming to collect. That's what destroys relationships.

Loans are the bank's job and they'll hold the debtor accountable.
