According to a media outlet earlier, URIID received 3 billion won from Kang, who is suspected of being the real owner of the cryptocurrency exchange Bithumb. While an executive at Bithumb’s Bucket Studio was arrested on charges of destroying embezzlement evidence, suspicions arose as Bucket Studio, which is managed by Kang’s sibling, was reported to have invested 3 billion won in Sung Yu Ri’s cosmetic company.

In particular, people suspected that the 300 million won Mercedes-Benz car that Kang drove was owned by Sung Yu Ri’s husband Ahn Sung Hyun.
