Article: 'War of Words' discuss famous actress younger brother responsible for assault in the army

The younger brother of an actress bullied a soldier to the point of suicide. His family attempted to compensate the soldier's family for $6,000~usd while the army tried to write off his death as having suffered from psychological illnesses.

1. [+284, -4] Han..

2. [+270, -6] Hyo..

3. [+258, -5] Joo...

4. [+31, -0] Thank you to 'War of Words' for mentioning it. Everyone in the case must be investigated.

5. [+27, -1] Han Hyo Joo

6. [+19, -3] Han Hyo Joo or Song Hye Gyo... stabbing people in the backs behind their nice girl images.

7. [+15, -1] H H J

8. [+11, -2] There are a few people asking why Han Hyo Joo should take the blame for her younger brother but while her brother committed such a crime, Han Hyo Joo promoted the army while her father tried to cover it up as a veteran commander himself. Her agency erased all traces of any news articles related to it and fellow Korea University students of the soldier who commit suicide had to take to the streets and put up fliers only to be silenced once again.

This is a cover up basically. Now where is the netizens wrath?? Or are they too busy bashing young girls.

shit that's serious.

2014 really isn't fucking around huh.

So her company tried to cover it up? Holy crap

The amount that rich families can get away with is really sickening. The army is such a hard time in even the most normal of situations.

I feel so sorry for this soldier and for his poor friend who tried to get attention for this case only to be silenced. Hopefully your efforts will not be in vain and you can find some sort of justice for your friend.

Families and agencies who think they can cover up disgusting deeds like this just to save face need to be exposed. This is a life that was lost, and behavior like what HHJ's brother engaged in shows deep problems that need to be addressed and fixed before he does something like this again.
Covering up only makes the problem worse

yup and they did cover it up real nice too. i only knew from a post on bestiz that ~mysteriously~ disappeared after a few hours. it only surfaced again because of the recent army scandal.

She shouldn't be blamed for his actions but she and her family should damn well be dragged to hell and back if it turns out they were helping cover this up. IDGAF if it's your brother.

This 100%. If she knew and continued to promote the army, it's sick. I don't care how bound she is by her agency.

everyone involved in the cover-up should be investigated tbh. that is just fucking wrong.
kittyboo17 21st-Aug-2014 09:40 pm (UTC)
damn....this is so messed up :(
juweel 21st-Aug-2014 09:44 pm (UTC)
No she shouldn't it was her brother who did it and her family who tried to cover it up not her. However messed up it may be for her agency to take down articles it's still not something she should be blamed for. Any agency would do the same to protect their stars. I can guarantee that every single agency in Korea is currently covering up a ton of f'ed up stuff possibly even worse than this! She's in a really sticky situation... her life and career shouldn't be destroyed because of something her brother did.

2014 is sf messy. I changed my vote idk, bc idk her involvement in the cover-up. But this definitely needs investigating.

That poor soldier and his family :(

OMG.
love_allure 21st-Aug-2014 11:21 pm (UTC)
i remember when this news first hit and her company just kept wiping out everything pertaining to it. everyone talks about how great the internet must be in korea with all that high speed but it probably sucks tbh. only a handful of useful sites to go on.
tempestdance 22nd-Aug-2014 12:38 am (UTC)
honestly the scale of how the news is being covered up makes me think it's more than what a simple agency can do but i'll shut my mouth.

This needs to be exposed, it's absolutely disgusting.
gathyou 22nd-Aug-2014 08:12 am (UTC)
Unless she is involved in covering up, she shouldn't take the blame. As for now, it seems like her company and her father tried to cover it up, but she wasn't directly involved in this ?
Anyway. If the company and the father really silenced the media (it really looks like it), I hope they'll be charged and judged. With or without money, the law is the law. And bullying/torturing someone to suicide is horrible, how can they possibly protect someone responsible for this ???

Even if her agency were really powerful, it's hard to imagine that they would be able to take down articles about this with such speed and efficiency if they didn't have help from the Korean government. It's in the government and military's best interest to hush this.
