What do all these events have in common?
They were memorable lopsided victories.
First reported by Yuna last week, Mr. Lee Byung-hun looked like he was in a bit of a pickle with two young women trying to blackmail him over apparently “sexually suggestive” video content. The married Lee Byung-hun (age 44) met model Lee Ji-yeon (age 24) earlier last year and in alleged text messages, it appeared that Byung-hun tried to seduce the younger woman into having sex with him through gifts and flirty text messages. All this was apparently happening while Byung-hun was barely a year into his marriage with actress Lee Min-Jung (age 32).
From left to right- Kim Da-hee, Lee Byung-hun and Lee Ji-yeon.
So, as the story goes, Lee Byung-hun tries to shag up with Ji-yeon, is apparently unsuccessful, and after tiring of the blue balls inducing chase (other accounts says that Byung-hun dumped Ji-yeon only after she insisted on having sex with him), he dumps her. Jilted, Ji-yeon plotted revenge with her friend, GLAM girl group member Kim Da-hee (age 20), to extort $5 million USD out of Byung-hun by threatening to release of video that allegedly has him making sexually suggestive (lewd?) comments to the girls in one of their evening outings. $5 million USD? Seriously? These girls need to get their heads checked!
Presented with such a ludicrous request Byung-hun did what any sane man would do. He said “hell no” and reported them to the police. Wow, talk about backfire! So, the police question Da-hee and Ji-yeon, they apparently confess to their attempts at blackmail and were formally charged. Yesterday, the Seoul Central District Court convicted both Da-hee and Ji-yeon of attempted blackmail with a jail sentence of one year and one year and two months, respectively.
These girls certainly tried to go big. They bet all their money and the keys to their car on a pair of twos, bluffed badly, and got royally shafted. Spectacular fail, but deserved due to their gross stupidity and hubris. Lee Byung-hun doesn’t come out smelling like roses either, with all kinds of evidence pointing to him being a pervy married ahjussi trying to seduce a girl 20 years his junior.
