The former girl girlfriend of deceased Deux member Kim Sung Jae has stated her opinion on the matter of his death.
Her representatives stated that they did not want an episode focusing on Kim Sung Jae's death to broadcast on SBS's 'I Want To Know'.
Kim Sung Jae was found passed away in his hotel room back in 1995. Although the cause of death was ruled as a heart attack, further examination found that his body was covered with 28 needle marks and animal anesthesia was found in his system. Many suspected Kim's girlfriend as the main suspect of the murder as she admitted to purchasing animal anesthesia but claimed to have thrown it away immediately. Because of the lack of evidence against her, she was released and the case has never been resolved.
She stated to a lawyer: "These days, famous celebrities have committed suicide due to malicious comments. Malicious comments that have nothing to do with the truth will cause me to never recover. I hope the law blocks the episode from being aired. The last time they tried to cover it, there was no new information. However now they say they're re-broadcasting it."
It seems like the court of law will determine whether the episode will air or not. An SBS attorney stated, "There is a reason why the court proceeded with the case privately. So, it's hard for me to talk about this case." The broadcast is scheduled to take place on December 21 if approved by the court. Kim Sung Jae's former girlfriend has requested that the broadcast be blocked from happening.
