Goo Hara’s Ex-Boyfriend Opens Up On Revenge Pornography Controversy
Goo Hara‘s ex-boyfriend Choi JongBum, who is currently being investigated with assault and attempt to leak revenge pornography, opened up on his thoughts about his current legal troubles through an interview recently.
The ex-boyfriend also sustained bodily injury when the actress scratched his face during a physical altercation that took place during the time of their breakup. The whole sex tape controversy spiraled out of control when news agencies reported that Choi sent Goo Hara a short footage of it when breaking up with her, which many assumed was a gesture of threat and blackmail.
Over 100,000 South Korean citizens joined in a petition to the government demanding legal action taken against him. A CCTV footage of the actress kneeling before him while pleading not to leak the tape online or given to a news agency surfaced online as well.
When asked why he sent a short footage of the sex tape to the actress during a recent interview, he responded by saying
“I never even wanted to film this in the first place. It was her idea to begin with. I sent it to her because we’re in the process of cutting ties.”
However, an acquaintance of Goo Hara stated
“Goo Hara heard that Choi was going to provide the footages to a news agency. Naturally, she was scared as she didn’t know how the video footage was going to be used for what purpose.”
Choi stated that while he lost his temper in the heat of the moment, he never gave the footages to anyone nor upload it online, despite having thought about doing so. He also stated that he called the police instead when he cooled down.
