To this, Kyeon Mi Ri stated that she was aware of the criticism and felt she needed to “Tell the truth.”

I had to accept (the criticism) because I thought it wouldn’t matter no matter what I said. At first, I thought that time would be the cure. I didn’t know this nightmare would go on this long. I thought it was only right that I should tell my truth at least once.

When asked about the ₩26.6 billion KRW (about $20.6 million USD) that the actress’s husband had allegedly benefitted through stock manipulation, Kyeon Mi Ri stated that the family had never seen the money.

It’s alleged that he made money through submitting false disclosures, but that money belonged to the business and not 1 KRW was used personally. This was explained during the trial.

Kyeon Mi Ri was then asked about the current trial her husband faces for similar charges, to which the actress replied by stating his innocence.

Please understand I need to be careful due to the trial is still going on. The allegations stating he profited by purchasing stocks through a paid-in capital are false. Please understand, as I can’t go speak about it in more depth.

When asked about the luxurious home that she currently lives in, the actress replied that the house was bought with her money and that her husband had never helped out financially.

The actress then ended her interview by pleading for forgiveness.

I didn’t know that my bad image would last this long. Although my daughters and I are able to withstand anything within our confines, it breaks my heart that it affects Lee Seung Gi, and I am so apologetic for that. I want to tell the truth and ask for forgiveness.
