I’ve read the indictment and acknowledge all the charges.
Shoo’s gambling case came to light when she confessed to being the former girl group member who had 600 million won in unpaid loans, some of which were suspected to be used for gambling.
She has since been involved in numerous rumors about her separation with her husband to cancelled deals with her agency.
Meanwhile, the court has indicated that they will speed things up and announce the sentence before the end of February. Shoo’s next trial will take place on February 7.
