According to the exclusive report, the two were found to be dating while the outlet was investigating Kang Jong Hyun. The media outlet writes that the businessman had prior been arrested for fraud, and his business dealings are said to be murky at best. According to Dispatch, some of the reasons why the businessman is so controversial include the following.

Between 2013 and 2014, Kang Jong Hyun was involved in a fraud case, defrauding about ₩3.50 billion KRW (about $2.45 million USD) from A Capital Group by altering the ledgers. He was charged with fraud and forgery of private documents.

In 2014 and 2015, Kang Jong Hyun was involved in a roundabout loan scheme with a financial institution. Through the financial institution, a total of ₩33.2 billion KRW (about $23.3 million USD) in private equity bonds were issued to help acquire a company. In this process, Kang Jong Hyun borrowed an extra ₩9.00 billion KRW (about $6.31 million USD) by taking advantage of a weakness in the financial institution.

Netizens responded to the dating allegations in an online community post.


  • “I really don’t understand this… She has plenty of money herself. Does she love money that much? The man looks like a basic ajussi from behind. Park Min Young’s image ㅠ.”
  • “He really is a fraudster… I don’t think she didn’t know when first dating him… If this is true, it’s unfortunate as I really liked her ㅜㅜ.”
  • “I guess Park Min Young has a strong stomach.”
  • “I don’t think it’s a sponsorship because seeing how their family is involved. It’s obvious they are dating. But why is she dating a fraudster? Her image is ruined. Seriously, even if he has so much money, this is beyond comprehension.”
  • “As soon as the ruling government ran into political turmoil, all this celebrity gossip broke out. First Don Spike, now Park Min Young, is this coincidence?”
  • “He spends thousands of dollars on wine per night? I lost all the money I had invested into one of his companies. Investigate the fraudster, and Park Min Young should leave her drama. I hope I never see her again.”
  • “They are fraudsters using other people’s money to buy cars.”
  • “No matter how much money he has, no one is jealous of this dating allegation.”
  • “They are living the good life off of other people’s grief. How do you guys even live with yourself?
