A Korean lawyer made speculation about the possible punishment for Choi Jong Hoon (former FT member), but whether Jonghyun (CNBLUE) and Junhyung (former Highlight member) will get sentenced for just watching clips?
On March 19, the program “Night of Real Entertainment” talked about possible imprisonment for Choi Jong Hoon (former member of FT Island) if the singer was officially convicted in the scandal that Korean media called the “Burning Sun gate“.
Currently, the former member of FT Island is being investigated for allegedly hiding hidden cameras to record the female victim’s sex clips, using relationships with police to cover the crime of drunk driving in 2016. So far, Choi Jong Hoon has pleaded guilty of drunk driving but denying the accusation of “going back door” with the police.
Speaking of accusations of sneaking sex clips, lawyer Kim Young Joo shared with SBS: “In the case, Yong Junhyung (former Highlight member) and Lee Jong Hyun (CNBLUE) did not directly film and distribute clips, therefore, they will not be punished “.
In fact, those who distribute sensitive clips will face a 3-year prison sentence, so Choi Jong Hoon will be sentenced to 5 years in prison because he recorded the clip and spread it in the sex chatroom with his friends.
Previously, the “Section TV” program also reported that Jung Joon Young would face imprisonment up to 7 years and 6 months if convicted.
