Madam Jung Claims Yang Hyun Suk Was Directly Involved In Prostitution Mediation

Continuing their reports on the case of Yang Hyun Suk’s alleged prostitution mediation in 2014, MBC’s “Straight” revealed an interview with Madam Jung on July 8.

In the interview, Madam Jung claimed that the mediation of prostitution in Europe (Monaco) in 2014 was a request from YG Entertainment. She said, “On the way to Europe, I received a phone call from Yang Hyun Suk’s side. It was the first time I had ever been called by CEO Kim of YGX. CEO Kim couldn’t do anything that Yang Hyun Suk didn’t tell him to do.”

She continued, “Photos of 10 girls were sent to Yang Hyun Suk’s friend.” One week before leaving for Europe, the friend delivered 200 million won (approximately $170,000) in euros to her, money she heard had been provided by Jho Low. Moreover, the friend stayed on the trip as an interpreter. Madame Jung said, "I've never contacted Jho Low directly. I can't speak English."

According to Madam Jung, Yang Hyun Suk personally gave directions on how the money should be distributed, telling her she was to give each of the girls 10 million won (approximately $8,500) and take the remaining half — 100 million won (approximately $85,000) — herself.

On why she agreed to the interview with “Straight,” Madam Jung said it was because YG’s side has changed their testimony. Madam Jung, who has been questioned six times by police thus far, said, “I just did as I was told by YG. I’m not someone who can get a lot of powerful figures to gather in one place. There was a cross-examination, and YG’s side claimed that they didn’t know why I had brought the girls.”

Madam Jung also suggested the possibility of a connection between YGX and police, saying that after the preview for the episode went out, CEO Kim of YGX called her and said that it’s “unlikely that the police will continue investigations.”

Speaking further about Yang Hyun Suk, Madam Jung said, “Yang Hyun Suk doesn’t often have dinners with businessmen. That’s why this is even more out of the ordinary. I don’t know what he wanted to gain from asking me to do this.”

“Yang Hyun Suk knows exactly why I took the money. Because he ordered it. I went [to Europe] because he told me to. That’s the truth.”

In addition, Madame Jung also made a point to emphasize that she doesn't know the people that received prostitution services as she doesn't know what happened after they went drinking.

Currently, YG Entertainment and Yang Hyun Suk are not responding to calls from reporters.

[Netizen comments]
[+652, -10] Wow, I never expected for her herself to come out with a testimony. How will YG respond to this?
[+633, -7] Looks like Jung Madame has cut ties with Yang Hyun Suk ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
[+529, -7] Will the truth finally come to light...
[+40, -0] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Hyun Suk-ah, seems like you've been dropped ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I think this woman will live life just fine without you
[+21, -1] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ If Yang Hyun Suk isn't called in for investigation again and is declared innocent, our country is truly hopeless
[+21, -0] What would a madame like her with tons of domestic clients need to search out a foreigner for? YG totally expanded their business with all kinds of shady operations.
[+8, -0] Keep it up, expose more
[+11, -0] To think that he has a daughter of his own...
[+9, -0] Looks like we'll get to see Yang Hyun Suk in handcuffs. With a CEO like this, no wonder their artists are like that.
[+9, -1] Yang Hyun Suk, what're you going to do now ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Suspend his shares! Make him liquidate!
benihime99 8th-Jul-2019 08:37 pm (UTC)
I haven't been keeping up so I don"t know who madam jung is but "BRING HIM DOWN"
dongsaengkiller 8th-Jul-2019 08:39 pm (UTC)
As expected. Only thing that’s surprising is the fact that she’s saying it
ah0000 8th-Jul-2019 08:57 pm (UTC)

Good, all of them should turn on each other and then ALL be taken down

pepsi_twist9 8th-Jul-2019 09:47 pm (UTC)
She's really trying to play it as if she's innocent but at this point it's a lot easier to believe they're all trash, some moreso than others.
rainstormraider 9th-Jul-2019 06:13 pm (UTC)
How is she trying to play innocent when she owns up to her part?
pepsi_twist9 10th-Jul-2019 12:46 am (UTC)
Playing innocent is the wrong term but the way the information is presented is greatly downplaying her own involvement. The focus is on her being coerced which I believe is true but it doesn't go into detail about what she's responsible for.

I really want him in jail, but honestly I would love it more if he had to give up his assets. That would hurt him more than jail time.
blck_ink 8th-Jul-2019 09:55 pm (UTC)
will yg's fans finally realize that yg is heavily involved in all of this?

the fact that she's spilling all of this information and isn't scared of yg/yge makes me think that someone higher up is protecting her (jho low maybe?)...or i'm just overthinking it.
benihime99 8th-Jul-2019 09:58 pm (UTC)
And she got receipts (and dirt)
lizanka23 9th-Jul-2019 04:51 am (UTC)
yeah maybe a higher up or some other CEO that is interested in seeing YG's downfall. i doubt he's the only one who has ordered services from her
aures 9th-Jul-2019 07:37 am (UTC)
i agree with benihime99, i think she got receipts, so she may not be afraid anymore + the "whole world" is watching, so...
cairistiona 9th-Jul-2019 07:20 pm (UTC)
i think she's also just super well-known and probably has other famous clients willing to bat for her

she's still getting charges but she'll probably be able to continue her business mostly unscathed once everything's all over
xoxkenzxox 8th-Jul-2019 10:14 pm (UTC)
YES! Throw him under the bus. Bump bump bump bitch. This is wonderful. Someone calling him out PERSONALLY and SPECIFICALLY.
goshipgurl 8th-Jul-2019 10:59 pm (UTC)
while it's great that YG is about to go down (hopefully), remember that seungri, JJY and the others are still not in jail and will probably never have to face consequences (= rotting away in jail for the rest of their lives) for their crimes.
ohbubbajoan 8th-Jul-2019 11:33 pm (UTC)
and let me guess, nothing will happen again. at this point the only thing that will bring him down is a very nasty disease cause i am not trusting the police or sk justice

Somethings makes me think she and Seungshit have a thing, because afaik, she didn't say anything agaisnt him, but is willing to take YG dpwn. Maybe he's her sugarbaby.

Idrc, I just want all these assholes to turn against each other and burn by the same flame.
kimbafierce 9th-Jul-2019 05:15 am (UTC)
She did say Seungshit is the one who introduced her "services" to YG.
myrrhcat 9th-Jul-2019 01:07 am (UTC)
ugh, i forgot he has a daughter. that poor kid. :(
pseudo_shigure 9th-Jul-2019 03:29 am (UTC)
while it's great that she doesnt take shit from yg and the police, still she's also dirty and they're all should be thrown to jail
kimbafierce 9th-Jul-2019 05:19 am (UTC)
At this point, it seems like everyone who witnessed anything in this case has spoken about police corruption, but the SK's government is adamant to brush this under the carpet it seems.
modestgoddess79 9th-Jul-2019 02:00 pm (UTC)
They are blaming it on low level police. They will never admit anyone higher than a traffic cop was involved.
kimbafierce 10th-Jul-2019 04:18 am (UTC)
Well low level police can't force prosecutors to stop an investigation.
At least sacrifice someONE, FGS. Drop one asshole out of the assholes' basket you're carrying.
rainstormraider 9th-Jul-2019 06:15 pm (UTC)
Its funny how the women in all this mess are easily caught but the men escape.
She is still facing charges too.

YHS must have breached a morality clause in his contract with YGE. Would it be enough to trigger his shares being dumped?

kimbafierce 10th-Jul-2019 04:21 am (UTC)
Okay but how are they gonna charge her for prostitution when, supposedly, there was no prostitution, and it was just men & women having a big, organized one night stand?
rainstormraider 10th-Jul-2019 01:20 pm (UTC)
What is this comment?
Her giving this interview is a clear admittance of prosecution mediation herself too...she mentions being paid for it...
kimbafierce 11th-Jul-2019 01:13 am (UTC)
I know. But YG is saying he didn't pay her for her services, and that while she had brought girls with her, he didn't know why they were there.. and any sexual relations that happened that night happened "naturally" and not because the girls were paid to do it.
The police - so far- have been caping HARD for YG. So my question is, if they gonna take his word for it, and ignore hers, how are they going to charge her for something that supposedly did not happen?
rainstormraider 11th-Jul-2019 07:52 am (UTC)
If there is a money trail he will be caught lying.
