Lim Hye-dong, who is accused of blackmailing San Diego Padres Kim Ha-sung, extorted more than 300 million won from Ryu Hyun-jin under the pretext of assault and sexual shame.
According to a dispatch report on the afternoon of the 19th, Lim Hye-dong extorted about 380 million won from Ryu Hyun-jin under the pretext of assault and sexual shame.
According to reports, Lim Hye-dong worked as a road manager for an agent company run by Ryu Hyun-jin’s brother and was in charge of driving Ryu Hyun-jin’s camp in Jeju Island in 2022.
Lim Hye-dong had a drinking party with several players and coaches, including Ryu Hyun-jin, at a hotel when gatherings of more than four people were prohibited due to COVID-19. At the time, Ryu Hyun-jin played a game of hitting Lim Hye-dong in the buttocks with a golf club.
The act was also recorded through a video clip. In the video, Lim Hye-dong put down her underwear and played a joke together, while Ryu continued the prank by rubbing Lim Hye-dong’s buttocks with the head of a golf club.헤라카지노
Lim used the video as a show of his friendship with Ryu. In an interview with Dispatch, a baseball player said, “Im sent me the video clip. I never imagined a video clip that I bragged about being close to would be used as a threat,” adding, “I couldn’t believe that Lim told me he would receive 10 billion won (about 9.4 million U.S. dollars).”
Lim Hye-dong sent the video to Ryu Hyun-jin in March last year, saying, “I have sexual shame,” and received 380 million won, demanding compensation for the assault and sexual shame.
“In the process of receiving the money, Lim repeatedly said, ‘I will let the media know,'” the police said. “I saw this as a threat.”
Earlier on the 18th, the police determined that Ryu Hyun-jin sent about 380 million won to Lim Hye-dong last year after receiving threats.
However, Lim Hye-dong, who launched a police investigation on the 19th, did not answer the reporter’s question, “Did you receive 380 million won from Ryu Hyun-jin?”
Meanwhile, Lim Hye-dong was first investigated for defamation under the Information and Communication Network Act against Kim Ha-sung.
Lim Hye-dong, who came out after being investigated, replied to the reporters’ question, “I was sincerely investigated for defamation. I think the investigative agency will solve it well.” It was the first time that Lim Hye-dong was investigated by the police on charges of defamation.
Earlier, Kim Ha-sung sued Lim Hye-dong for continuing to ask for settlement money after having a physical fight with Lim Hye-dong while drinking at a bar in Gangnam, Seoul, in 2021.
Lim Hye-dong later refuted that he was repeatedly assaulted by Kim Ha-sung, and Kim Ha-sung denied this and further sued Lim Hye-dong on defamation charges.
Meanwhile, the police summoned and questioned Lim in December last year, conducted a forensic examination on his mobile phone, and found evidence that he threatened her. He also requested a preliminary arrest warrant for Lim on charges of racketeering.
