Park Hyo Shin is accused of fraud charges totaling 400 million won; agency denies

Singer Park Hyo Shin is being accused of contractual fraud. According to media reports on the 28th, Park Hyo Shin reportedly defrauded a businessman "A" by promising to sign a contract with his entertainment agency.

According to "A", Park Hyo Shin's exclusive contract with his previous agency JellyFish Entertainment was nearing expiration in November 2014 and the singer agreed to sign a contract with A's agency. Using the contract as bait, he reportedly received from A, a $233k Bentley for himself, a $51k Mercedes Benz for his mother, a $12k luxury watch, and an estimated $50k in cash at least 4 times for an estimated total of $200k. Overall, he received a total of 400 million KRW (~$345k) in gifts from A's agency.

Park Hyo Shin took the money while expressing several times that he would sign with the agency. However, after his contract with JellyFish expired in 2016, he kept putting off the contract signing and eventually signed with his current label, Glove Entertainment. According to A, he questioned Park Hyo Shin about it at the time and he [Hyo Shin] replied "There is nothing that can be done" and then cut off all contact with A. As a result, A filed a criminal complaint on June 27th with the Seoul District Prosecutors Office against Park Hyo Shin on charges of fraud.
