The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s intelligence crime investigation unit summoned Yang Hyun Suk at 10 am KST on October 1. He was released from questioning at 12:10 am KST, on October 2, meaning he was questioned for 14 hours and 10 minutes.
As he finished his second round of investigations, he briefly spoke to reporters about the investigation.
I have sincerely participated in the police investigations. I have honest about the facts.
It is more appropriate for the police to make the announcement regarding the charges against me, following a police investigation, instead of me making it through a personal statement.
It is not true that I used money from the company for gambling.
