The Conclusion of Lee Byung-huns Blackmail Scandal

It seems there is finally some resolution to the Lee Byung-hun scandal that erupted in August of 2014. On Thursday January 15, a Seoul court sentenced Kim Da-hee and Lee Ji-yeon to one year, and one year two months of jail time, respectively, for their participation in the blackmailing of actor Lee Byung-hun.

The scandal began in August of 2014 when Lee Byung-hun turned to law enforcement claiming he was being blackmailed for a sum of 5 billion Korean Won by GLAM member Da-hee and model Lee Ji-yeon. The two women had supposedly threatened to release a video/cell phone recording of the three drinking together while carrying on conversations perceived as too lewd and inappropriate for a married man and two women nearly half his age. Lee Byung-huns representatives did not deny that Lee was familiar with the two women, but claimed their relationship was purely as acquaintances who met through mutual friends.

Hyomin talked about T-ara's old bullying scandal coming back into attention.

During a photoshoot and interview with High Cut, she said, "So much time has passed and I've become so dulled to it that I'm not sure if it still bothers us in our hearts. I didn't think anything like 'It's good that it's revealed at least now'. I just felt burdened by the fact that it was being mentioned again."
