On April 7, a Munhwa Ilbo report stated that the Southern Seoul Court is examining whether to grant an arrest warrant for the golfer. Previously, on April 5, an arrest warrant was requested on charges of fraud and other crimes.

Ahn Sung Hyun, who is known to be close friends with controversial businessman Kang Jong Hyun, who is alleged to be the defacto owner of Korea’s largest crypto exchange, Bithumb, is alleged to have accepted millions of dollars in bribes from a cryptocurrency company in exchange of listing the cryptocurrency on the exchange. Prosecutors believe that the pro-golfer used his friendship with Kang Jong Hyun in committing his crimes.
