The news reports that Lee Seung Gi’s father-in-law, who is the husband of actress Gu Hye Mi and Lee Seung Gi’s father-in-law, was recently cleared of charges relating to stock price manipulation. However, the public has shown mixed reactions to Lee Seung Gi’s statement.

On the 16th of June, the Supreme Court’s third division (Chief Justice Roh Jung-hee) overturned the previous acquittal of Kyeon Mi Ri’s husband A, and B, who co-managed the company with A, sending the case back to the Seoul High Court.

A was charged with artificially inflating the stock price of a KOSDAQ-listed company he managed in 2014 and selling the shares obtained through a capital increase to gain approximately 2.3 billion KRW in profit. The company publicly announced several times between January and March 2015 that Kyeon Mi Ri and CEO B each invested 600 million KRW to acquire new shares, notifying the market and regulatory bodies.

The prosecution argued that their false disclosures constituted “fraudulent unfair trading” prohibited under Article 178 of the Capital Markets Act, but the second trial court acquitted them. However, the Supreme Court found that the investment details provided by Kyeon Mi Ri and other investors were indeed “important information,” and false disclosure of this information constituted fraudulent unfair trading.

The Supreme Court stated, “The lower court’s decision that the details of the stock acquisition funding were not ‘important matters’ and that it was not ‘fraudulent unfair trading’ aimed at obtaining financial benefits was incorrect.” The case was then sent back to the Seoul High Court for further review.

In response, Lee Seung Gi’s agency, Big Planet Made Entertainment, released a statement, acknowledging the controversy surrounding Lee Seung Gi’s father-in-law. They asked the public not to involve family matters, emphasizing the responsibilities Lee Seung Gi has as a head of a family, a husband, and a father.

They stated:

“As an artist who has reached his 20th debut anniversary, we ask fans not to interfere with Lee Seung-gi’s personal matters, as he is striving to get closer to his fans. Lee Seung Gi is now fulfilling his responsibilities as a responsible husband and son-in-law in a family. In particular, the current issue is something that should be resolved by Lee Seung Gi’s family, as it pertains to events that occurred before his marriage.”

However, the public’s reactions have been cold to the agency’s statement. Some made sarcastic comments about disregarding the victims’ feelings, while others expressed concerns that focus on Lee Seung Gi’s family may cause further harm to the victims. In contrast, others questioned the connection between the ruling and Lee Seung G’s father-in-law, expressing their confusion on the matter.

Despite Lee Seung Gi’s agency stating that this issue occurred before his marriage and that it should be resolved by the family, the public continues to have diverse opinions. Some believe that the victims’ circumstances have not changed before or after Lee Seung Gi’s marriage, and that as a family member, Lee Seung Gi should have been more cautious with his statement. Others insist on refraining from excessive criticism, citing the need to respect Lee Seung Gi’s family and the innocent child involved.
