Goo Hara's (ex?)boyfriend Blackmailed her with Sex Tape & Now She's Suing



On October 4, media outlet Dispatch released a report that revealed “C” had blackmailed Goo Hara on the night of their fight.

According to the report, following their 30-minute brawl on September 13 at around 12:46 a.m. KST, “C” told Goo Hara, “I’m going to ruin your career as a celebrity. I’m sending a tip to Dispatch.” This was when “C” sent an email to the media outlet at 1:26 a.m. that said, “Goo Hara. I will give you a tip, so give me a call. 010-XXX-XXXX (C’s phone number). If you are late, I will give it to someone else.”

At around 1:42 a.m., Goo Hara rode the elevator by herself to the parking lot of her villa to talk with “A,” a man who works in the industry. Previously, on September 10, Goo Hara had eaten lunch with her manager and “A.” However, she told her boyfriend “C” that she was only eating with her manager. Through a phone call with her manager, “C” found out that “A” was also present at lunch and got angry at Goo Hara for lying. Goo Hara went to the hair salon that “C” works at on September 12 to explain herself, but “C” told her to just go home.

At 2:04 a.m., “C” sent Goo Hara a 30-second clip of their sex tape on Kakaotalk. 10 minutes later, Goo Hara relayed this information to her agency’s previous CEO, and at 2:21 a.m., Goo Hara knelt down in front of “C” in the elevator, begging. This moment was captured by the CCTV at her villa.

Later, she chased him down to the parking lot, but he had already packed away his belongings in his car and sent her another 8-second clip of their sex tape. Goo Hara attempted to talk with him, but left to talk with “A” again. She begged him to come kneel.

Meanwhile, “C” had driven off in a drunken state.

In regards to this, Goo Hara said, “I discovered that video in [his] phone. I clearly erased that. It was scary. [I thought] Did he send that to Dispatch? Did he send that to [his] friends? What about a celebrity’s life? As a woman, life was… complicated.”


At 2:33 a.m., “C” messaged Goo Hara again:

C: “You are talking on the phone for too long with A.”
Goo Hara: “You told me to tell the full story over the phone and tell him to kneel down in front of you?”
C: “What should I do?”
Goo Hara: “So let’s meet and talk. A says he’s almost here.”
C: “Talk? I don’t want to talk.”
Goo Hara: “I will make him kneel down. You said that’s what you want?”

“C” then sent her a photo of his injured forehead and continued to send Goo Hara messages, saying, “You’re really busy,” along with a screen capture of Goo Hara currently on call with someone else. He eventually told her, “I’ll carry on with my work then.”

At around 3:21 a.m., “C” sent Goo Hara a final message:
C: “I washed my face, but thanks to you, I can’t go to work again. What should I do?”
C: “Ah ah sorry. You must have met that Oppa now. Sorry for disturbing your nightlife. I wanted to ask what I should do. If you don’t respond, I’ll just go to the police.”

Forty minutes later, at 4 a.m., Goo Hara’s roommate B called “C” to ask him about his video messages. Their conversation is as follows:

B: “Oppa, that photo and video…”
C: “Yeah, what about the photo and video?”
B: “You sent that to unnie?”
C: “So what?”
B: “But blackmailing with that kind of thing…”
C: “Then with blackmailing, should I release it? It can be released as blackmail. What?”
B: “Do you want to do it like that?”
C: “F*** why are you lying to me then? Why did you call me?!”

It was at 4:21 a.m. when “C” sent a second email to Dispatch that said, “It won’t disappoint. Contact me.” Dispatch attempted to call him afterwards, but he did not answer.

In this report, Dispatch stated that they had known about “C” and his threats, but did not approach the situation. They had no plans to report about the video as well.

This entire time, Goo Hara was careful. Her priority, and the only thing she could do, was explain the situation. Although she acknowledged the facial injuries she had given to “C,” he had denied the diagnosis from her gynecologist, saying that she would usually bleed from her vagina.

After a pause, she continued, “I didn’t want to argue any longer. I decided I couldn’t irritate him. He had the video. I thought it’d be better to consult with a lawyer and clean up matters. But…”

However, “C” continued to assert that he had faced a “defamation of character.” In place of “C,” lawyer Kwak Jun Ho had given an interview and stated, “Although we’ve received an offer to settle, the client’s stance remains unchanged. We are placing importance on the defamation of the client’s character.”

Goo Hara gave a statement about this ordeal and acknowledged her own mistakes, but also thought that the perpetuator should not transform himself into the victim. She stated, “He blackmailed me with the video. For a female celebrity, is there anything scarier than this? I acknowledge the wounds that I’ve given him. I’ll receive my punishment. But what about this other wound that he’s given me? He’s a blackmailer.”

On September 27, Goo Hara sued “C” for coercion and blackmail, along with violation of the Act on Special Cases Concerning the Punishment, etc. of Sexual Violence Crimes.



Article: [Exclusive] "He sent me a video" Goo Hara sues C-ssi for blackmail

1. [+721, -36] I'm not saying Goo Hara did anything right but he's a ba$tard for threatening her with a video when obviously they had to have loved each other at one point ㅋ

2. [+688, -25] This man.. is so pathetic

3. [+652, -18] He's so pathetic... threatening to release her sex video and all

4. [+134, -2] He must've filmed it secretly, that's a hidden camera crime

5. [+126, -3] Wow, no wonder Goo Hara kept looking for compromise. Even in the CCTV, she was following him to the elevator, which I thought was weird.. but as it turns out.. this man was threatening her..

6. [+125, -2] He's such a bad person.. if he's acting like this after only three months of dating, I'm speechless

7. [+115, -0] Wow... he's the worst. You can't shield him at all when he's threatening her with a sex video.

8. [+107, -2] I feel like he probably already showed the video to his friends ㅠ what a pathetic, bad man...

9. [+106, -2] She's a human being, not just a celebrity... It's so sad that she had to get on her knees to beg him to not leak the sex video... He's not only a criminal for drunk driving but this too

10. [+98, -2] So she was like this because of the video this whole time... this man is trash

11. [+95, -1] So Goo Hara will be charged for assaulting him and that ba$tard of a man will be charged for smoking in an elevator, driving under the influence, hitting her back, and blackmailing her (if he actually leaked the video)...

12. [+87, -4] This is crazy... if anyone still hates on Goo Hara after this, they're no better than him

13. [+83, -1] What the, so this whole thing was the result of him trying to blackmail her with a sex tape??? He really tried to milk her, didn't he...

14. [+81, -1] How did Goo Hara even get involved with this trash??? He's a psycho

15. [+69, -3] It's not like Goo Hara's a minor, whether she has sex or not is a private matter... I can't believe of all people it's her boyfriend who's blackmailing her over it

16. [+58, -0] He's horrible... so when he e-mailed Dispatch "I won't disappoint", did he mean that he was going to pass them the video?

1. [+155, -4] I'm a man myself but this ba$tard is trash

2. [+131, -5] Wow, this guy is so trash ㅋㅋ not only did he beat his own girlfriend but threatened her with their sex tape?? He's no different than the Korean men making headlines these days

3. [+106, -3] He's trash

4. [+28, -3] So embarrassed as a fellow man... Don't let him off scott free. Take control of the video and delete it and throw him in jail.

5. [+27, -2] Just because you didn't hit someone doesn't mean you're innocent... he's still a pathetic criminal



Article: CCTV of Goo Hara kneeling revealed "Blackmailed with video"

1. [+5100, -12] So he's a sex video criminal. This whole ploy of milking a celebrity for all she's worth is going to land him in jail. Gives me goosebumps to think of his interview where he said, "I'm a positive person... I won't go into details about someone I loved"... He was really deceitful with the media.

2. [+353, -9] When she said she thought he deleted it when she first found the video on his phone, that means it was a hidden camera, right? So he already had it backed up before he deleted it... what a goosebump-inducing ba$tard

3. [+311, -11] This pathetic, uneducated ba$tard is so sad...

4. [+16, -1] He's already been on TV once, why can't we just reveal his face already? Sometimes things like this make me think that celebrities don't always have it easy just for being rich

5. [+15, -2] Celebrities really need to stick to dating other celebrities... at least then you don't have to worry about worst case scenarios like videos being leaked

6. [+9, -1] Poor Goo Hara.. ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ why did he even film that video? Crazy trash... lives up to the image of male hair stylists!!!!!

7. [+2, -0] I don't understand how you can want to ruin the life of someone you once loved... What did she do wrong? I'm curious... Is he really blackmailing her with a video over a break up? That's it? He's a psycho if that's true...

8. [+2, -0] She got caught by a professional, that's all. I bet the minute she DMed him, he knew that he landed a big one and immediately started working on her. She was just a fish caught in his net. He needs to be sent to jail and removed from society. What a horrible piece of cancer

torontok 4th-Oct-2018 05:52 am (UTC)
Classic abuser. This was how he was acting in a three month relationship, that's supposed to be the fucking honeymoon period for couples.

I hope she destroys him.I hope people go to his salon and tear it apart. He violated her in the worst way possible and has the gall to continue playing victim
sra_interesante 4th-Oct-2018 05:58 am (UTC)
he really planned to create this controversy in advance, what a asshole

he must love negative attention he's not even putting his sns on private mood ...

i hope goo hara can heal and sorround herself with better kind of people
miss_suunshinee 4th-Oct-2018 07:23 pm (UTC)

The sad thing is that this will follow her for the rest of her career. But she had sex! She disfigured him! She threw a bottle!

And people still kept defending him because of those scratches...I hope he rots. Classic narcissistic abuser.
myungung 4th-Oct-2018 02:29 pm (UTC)
even though the comments are mostly supportive of her (or against the man), I can't help but worry in future people will continue to dig up this said video if it leaks. look at g.na, or jiyeon and hyomin pre-debut, people are still talking about it.
daceymormont 4th-Oct-2018 06:30 am (UTC)
He's complete and utter trash. Piece of shit deserves his life and career ruined.
lydzi 4th-Oct-2018 07:01 am (UTC)
Omg. I really hope justice sides with her completely. He is a waste of oxygen, what an horrible trash. Valar morghulies.I'm sorry she had to be with such a person.
friedchickeneu 4th-Oct-2018 07:18 am (UTC)
he's fucking trash and i'm so enraged over this. i hope the justice system actually sides with goo hara.

i hope this piece of shit is going to be dragged to his ruins.
goshipgurl 4th-Oct-2018 07:24 am (UTC)
I have no words for trash like him. I hope the video won't leak but I bet he already sent it to his friends and one of them will upload it.

I also wonder who the other guy is and why he plays such a big role in this story.

cairistiona 4th-Oct-2018 11:06 pm (UTC)
i don't think the other guy plays a role in the story at all, he's just an excuse. from what i've read, she met with a guy about a job. that was it. but her boyfriend didn't like her meeting guys no matter what the reason, so she lied and said she was just meeting her female manager for lunch. this whole thing about making the guy kneel down is ridiculous--it sounds like she didn't know A very well, he wasn't a friend per se, so how on earth did she wrangle a promise to kneel in front of her boyfriend from him???
gathyou 4th-Oct-2018 07:38 am (UTC)
Poor Hara, this just keeps on getting more awful everyday for her. I really hope she has good people around her to support her :(
Glad to see the translated comments being positive towards her, hopefully everyone realizes how much of a trashbag this guy is. I want him to rot in prison
juhli 4th-Oct-2018 08:46 am (UTC)
This explains why he has been so brazen about this since the beginning, he thought he had her 100% cornered.

Fucking scumbag.
dbil 4th-Oct-2018 10:00 am (UTC)
Destroy him. What a fucking scumbag this guy is.
jyusou 4th-Oct-2018 11:07 am (UTC)
This fucking asshole. He deserves to be ended!
rockerista03 4th-Oct-2018 11:21 am (UTC)
He's worse than trash jfc I hope he gets destroyed.
theweebdream 4th-Oct-2018 11:33 am (UTC)
Fuck this POS. I’m glad to see the Korean public is on her side now. I hope he gets screwed over for the rest of his life.
dior_chic 4th-Oct-2018 11:54 am (UTC)
I honestly hope he dies so she can be at peace and rid of this worthless trash
