In the chatroom sex scandal, Senior Superintendent Yoon has been previously accused of abusing his status to conceal criminal activities of Choi Joon Hoon. The K-pop idol has been accused of drunk driving, police bribery, and sharing of illicit sex videos via the chatroom with other members such as Seungri and Jung Joon Young.
Earlier today ( March 18) SBS reported that Choi Jong Hoon had talked with its production staff on March 2 through a phone interview to reveal his friendship with Senior Superintendent Yoon.
The report noted when asked about Yoon, Choi Jong Hoon responded,
“Higher-ups in the police? That’s right. I think I know of some.”
While being questioned Choi Jong Hoon also revealed that,
“We’ve played golf together once. I heard that he was in the Blue House. He has experience being in the police.”
At the beginning of 2018, Choi Jong Hoon, former Yuri Holdings CEO Yoo In Suk, Senior Superintendent Yoon, and Yoon’s wife had played golf together.
Choi Jong Hoon had also shared VIP concert tickets worth 150 thousand won with Yoon’s wife. He confirmed that Yoon’s wife had lived in Malaysia with their kids and when he had a concert there, he gave her tickets. He also admitted knowing the Superintendent’s wife’s number.
When asked about the relationship between Senior Superintendent Yon and Yoo In Suk, the former CEO of Yuri Holdings Choi Jong Hoon replied,
“I think they’re very close. [Yoo] told me that [Yoon] is in the Blue House, so he’s very high ranking, and that I should take care of them when I give them concert tickets.”
Even though Choi Jong Hoon had shared personal information about the Senior Superintendent during the phone call interview its seen where he completely contradicted the claims he had made on March 17 when he was being investigated.
When asked about his connection with the police officer, Choi Jong Hoon had responded.
“I have no connection to the former officer.”
So it’s safe to say that the deeper we go into this scandal the messier it gets as everyone is trying to protect themselves. The individuals being investigated show no sense of remorse or regret.
