The woman who followed Rain and Kim Tae Hee to the hair salon despite several warnings has been put on trial

A woman in her 40s, who stalked the home of Rain and Kim Tae Hee several times and rang the doorbell, was put on trial.

On Dec 29th, the Seoul Western District Prosecutor’s Office announced that A, who is suspected of violating the stalking punishment law, has been indicted without detention on Dec 27th.

In this regard, a prosecution representative said, “The prosecution will continue to deal with stalking crimes strictly.”

According to the prosecution and others, A was sentenced to three violations of the Minor Crime Punishment Act for stalking the residence of Rain and Kim Tae Hee 14 times from March to October last year and ringing their doorbell.

However, on Feb 27th, as A went back to Rain and Kim Tae Hee’s residence, knocked on the door and rang the doorbell, she was arrested by the police who were dispatched after Rain’s report. In addition, in April, she reportedly went to the hair salon used by the celebrities and continued stalking them.

In response, the police decided not to send the case in April on reasons that it is difficult to say that there is the continuity and repetition necessary to establish a stalking crime. However, when the prosecution demanded a reinvestigation and transmission, it was confirmed that A has been sent without detention in September.

Earlier in 2020, Rain’s agency, Sublime Artist Agency, released the CCTV footage of a woman stalking Rain and Kim Tae Hee’s home and pressing the doorbell, signaling that it will take legal respond against actions like that.

At the time, the agency warned, “More and more people are visiting Rain’s house, pressing the doorbell, shouting, etc. If such actions that violate our artist’s privacy and threaten his life are repeated, we will take all possible legal measures without leniency.”
