Comedian Park Soo Hong's sister-in-law, the wife of his older brother, allegedly took out 8 insurance policies with death benefits under his name.
On April 15, Reporter Lee Jin Ho uploaded a video on his YouTube channel titled, "Shocking news!! Why did [his] sister-in-law [do that]? The Truth Behind Park Soo Hong's 1 billion won insurance claim".
Here, reporter Lee Jin Ho revealed a new piece of information that left Park Soo Hong in great shock, after the beginning of his lawsuit regarding his ongoing financial dispute with his brother and sister-in-law. Reporter Lee Jin Ho began by stating, "Park Soo Hong filed a lawsuit against his brother and sister-in-law for embezzlement, claiming 11.6 billion won (~$9,437,876 USD) in damages. The lawsuit was carried out with solid evidence, but the process was not easy for Park Soo Hong." Lee Jin Ho then added, "While I was gathering information, I encountered an additional shocking fact. Many people are aware of the fact that Park Soo Hong suffered from great pain mentally due to his conflict with his brother and sister-in-law, as well as the criticism surrounding his wife. This is the truth. But there was one more thing that really shocked Park Soo Hong."
Lee Jin Ho continued, "It is something related to his insurance. Last year, after he began his legal battle with his brother, he reviewed all the work-related documents related to his brother and sister-in-law's company. During this process, Park Soo Hong discovered that eight life insurance policies with death benefits had been taken out under his name. Also, the beneficiary of the insurance was a company called Media Boom. This is a company that Park Soo Hong's brother and Park Soo Hong's sister-in-law owns 100% shares of. Even their nephews/nieces were listed as members. These were insurance policies where in the case of Park Soo Hong's death, they would earn up to 1 billion won (~$813,610 USD) in insurance claims. This means that if something ever happened to Park Soo Hong, all the money was designed to go to his brother, sister-in-law, and nephews/nieces. This is a really shocking fact."
Lee Jin Ho then said, "After confirming these facts during the process of his lawsuit, Park Soo Hong is said to have been tremendously shocked. It's not just a matter of money, but a matter of betrayal by his brother and family members, human-to-human, so he reportedly was unable to sleep for a while."
