Goo Hara is suing her ex-boyfriend for blackmail after he allegedly threatened to release a sex tape of the both of them.
More details of the fight between Goo Hara and her ex-boyfriend, a hairstylist believed to be named Choi Jong Beom, have emerged as the man allegedly threatened to release a sex tape of the both of them to the media.
The man had sent Hara a 30-second clip of the said clip on instant messaging platform Kakaotalk, and she was later seen on CCTV on her knees in front of him, allegedly begging for him not to release the footage.
However, his lawyers have claimed that he had no intention of blackmailing her with the video, adding that it was Hara who requested for the video to be filmed. His lawyer added that his client sent videos to Hara as “memories to cherish”, and that they have never revealed the clip to others.
Both parties’ claims are currently being investigated, and it has been revealed that the man has since been fired from the hair salon he was working at.
