Youtuber Kim Yong Ho who made videos suspecting the private life of celebrities, including actress Han Ye Seul and comedian Park Soo Hong, has declared a permanent suspension of his Youtube activities.
On August 27, Kim Yong Ho wrote on his Youtube channel “Entertainment Director Kim Yong Ho”: “After I attacked others and called them monsters, I realized that there was also a monster in me. Therefore, I think I should stop before things get worse. Until I gain back my confidence, I don’t think I can make videos anymore.”
Referring to the celebrities whom he made the videos of, he said, “I think I was too immersed in stabbing others with a knife. I think I had stained the knife with too much blood and received too many criticisms.”
He added, “At first, I started everything alone, so I thought I could make harsh statements. After that, everything went out of control, and many people sued me. I attended many trials, and the court told me that I had crossed the line.”
Previously, Kim Yong Ho was brought to trial and charged with defamation and raising rumors about ‘actress sponsorship’. In addition, he was also accused of exposing the private life of celebrities, including Han Ye Seul, Park Soo Hong, Park Yoo Chun, Lee Geun, etc.
