On January 12 KST, 'The Fact' posted a video titled, "'Jung Joon Young chat room' Choi Jonghun, 2 months after his release from prison..." on YouTube. The video showed Jonghun attending service at a church with his mother. He had long hair tied back into a ponytail, glasses, and a mask on. When a reporter for 'The Fact' attempted to interview Jonghun in the parking lot of the church, Jonghun seemed taken aback and said, "How did you know that I came here? Do the church people really just leak my information like that? I have a bad trauma too, this is shocking. What can I say if you just shove the voice recorder in my face like that?"
Then, when the reporter brought the camera closer to Jonghun's face, Jonghun turned to the side and called for his mother, saying, "Mom, the reporters are, like, suddenly interviewing me".
Jonghun's mother then ran over and yelled at the reporters, "Why are you asking him that? Leave. Why are you making a fuss over nothing special? You will be reprimanded by God. No thank you. Why are you doing that to someone who is trying to live a life in faith? When time passes, God will automatically solve everything for us. Later, the results will all be okay. Just you wait and see."
