Kim Ho-jung’s official position photo = MK Sports reporter Kim Jae-hyun Kim Ho-joong expressed his position on the controversy over illegal gambling.

On the 19th, Jung In, the legal representative of Kim Ho-joong, said, “I deeply apologize for the unintentional controversy regarding Kim Ho-joong. Ho-jung Kim is now in a position that he is sincerely regretting his past mistakes and that he will be punished for those mistakes.”

“Because the false and speculative articles that are currently in the air are completely different from the facts, we plan to legally respond to these illegal acts. First of all, Kim Ho-jung cut off all contact with Mr. Kwon Mo and his acquaintance Cha Mo, whom he had known in Jinju in the past, after the Mr. Trot contest was over, and since the end of February this year, he has not been betting sports at all.”

In addition, “Even in the case of sports betting that was involved for entertainment in the past, if a small bet such as 30,000 won or 50,000 won wins, the money was only exchanged or bet again, and a large bet of 500,000 won at a time would not have been able to afford it at the time. In addition, he was not in a betting addiction enough to fall into such bets. That is why I want to emphasize once again that the scale and duration of illegal gambling was not consistent and widespread.”

In addition, there are not only some slanderous news articles that lead Kim Ho-jung to be a great criminal by discreetly disclosing the contents of Kakao Talk that were made personally by the devil’s editing, as well as false posts covering Naver’s past fan cafes without proper rights. It is very unfair and regretful because of the wide range of crimes,” he said. “The enemy of abuse of unilateral false articles that threatens the honor and livelihood of the company must be eliminated.”

Finally, “I admit myself and sincerely apologize for Kim Ho-jung’s fault. In addition, I pledge to everyone that Hojoong Kim will never repeat the same mistakes in the future. However, as far as false reports and malicious comments are not true, we will respond thoroughly and legally.”

▶ The position of Kim Ho-jung’s law firm Jeong In.

First of all, we deeply apologize for the unintentional controversy regarding our client, Hojoong Kim. Ho-jung Kim is now in a position that he is sincerely regretful of his past mistakes and that he will be punished for that mistake.

However, since the false and speculative articles that are now rampant are completely different from the facts, we will legally respond to such misconduct. First of all, Kim Ho-jung cut off all contact with Mr. Kwon Mo and his acquaintance Cha Mo, whom he had known in Jinju in the past.

Even in the case of sports betting that was involved for entertainment in the past, if a small bet such as 30,000 won or 50,000 won wins, the money was exchanged or bet again, and a large bet of 500,000 won at a time was not available at the time. I wasn’t betting addiction enough to fall into betting. For this reason, it is emphasized once again that the scale and duration of illegal gambling has not been consistent and widespread.

Nevertheless, not only some slanderous news articles that lead Kim Ho-jung as a great criminal by subtly disclosing the contents of Kakao Talk made personally by the devil’s edits, as well as a false post that covers Naver’s past fan cafes without a legitimate title. It is very unfortunate and sad because the back is wide.

In particular, in the case of some media outlets, the act of categorically reporting Kim Ho-jung as if a crime was established is a violation of the actual law that constitutes another crime of defamation beyond the ethical dimension of simply unfair reporting. It even violates basic principles such as the presumption of innocence or guaranteeing the right to object. Reporter Kang Kyung-yoon, who has already been accused of civil and criminal charges due to various crimes, is seen as a behavior of overdosing forcible speculative articles for his immunity. The enemy of abusing articles indiscriminately must be eliminated. Despite having nothing to do with publicity, illegal indiscriminate disclosure of KakaoTalk messages constitutes a crime of defamation under the actual law and at the same time constitutes an infringement of the privacy guaranteed by the constitution, requiring strict judicial treatment. In particular, I firmly believe that the suspicion of illegal cohesion with reporter Kang Moo Kwon/Camo Cha, etc. will surely be revealed at this opportunity.

Once again, I acknowledge myself and sincerely apologize for Kim Ho-jung’s fault. In addition, I pledge to everyone that Hojoong Kim will never repeat the same mistakes in the future. However, we will strictly legally respond to non-true parts such as false reports and malicious comments.
