South Korean actor Lee Sun-gyun recently found himself embroiled in a complex and intriguing case of extortion and blackmail. As the investigation unfolds, the details of the case have caught the public’s attention, highlighting the dark underbelly of the entertainment industry.
In this high-profile case, Lee Sun-gyun was allegedly threatened by Mr. A, a 29-year-old female manager of an entertainment establishment, and an elusive accomplice known only as Mr. B. The duo reportedly extorted 300 million won (approximately 250,000 USD) and valuables from the actor.
The police, particularly the Incheon Police Agency Drug Crime Investigation Unit, have been tirelessly working to uncover the identity of Mr. B, but two months into the investigation, the mysterious figure remains unidentified, fueling public curiosity.

The case took a dramatic turn when Mr. A was arrested and indicted on charges related to psychotropic drugs under the Narcotics Control Act. However, her claims about Mr. B’s involvement have led to speculations about whether Mr. B is a real person or a fabricated character by Mr. A to mislead the investigation.
These suspicions were further fueled when an MBC program ‘True Story Expedition’ covered the case, revealing Mr. A’s history of drug use and her claims of a close relationship with Lee Sun-gyun. It came to light that Mr. A was previously reported to the police for using drugs, including marijuana, with a junior colleague, Mr. C, who later turned her in.
Adding to the complexity, Mr. A contacted Lee Sun-gyun, claiming to be threatened by an anonymous individual who had hacked his smartwatch. The alleged blackmailer demanded 100 million won, but Lee Sun-gyun ended up paying 350 million won. This led to speculations that Mr. A might have been the actual blackmailer.
The police are now focusing on determining the veracity of Mr. A’s claims and the existence of Mr. B. They are also investigating the possibility of Mr. A’s involvement in a self-devised scheme. As the investigation progresses, there is also the looming question of Lee Sun-gyun’s involvement in drug use, which the police plan to explore further once the blackmail case becomes clearer.
This case has shed light on the potentially dangerous and hidden aspects of celebrity life in South Korea, revealing how fame and fortune can become entangled with criminal activities and personal vulnerabilities. As the public eagerly awaits the resolution of this case, it serves as a reminder of the complex challenges and pressures faced by those in the spotlight.
