Shin Hyun Joon not guilty of the defamation lawsuit filed by a former manager. It was said that Hyun Joon mistreated his former manager.
Kim Gwang Seob is Shin Hyun Joon’s former manager and former director of the current agency of Hyun Joon, which is HJ Film.
In the reports, Hyun Joon is allegedly mistreating him during their time working together. Hyun Joon proved that the claims were not valid and announced a potential legal action against Kim Gwang Seob.
Request for reinvestigation
Kim submitted a request asking for reinvestigation about the claim that Hyun Joon took Propofol illegally in 2010. In response, Hyun Joon stated that the police had investigated him regarding the Propofol, which the hospital gave for his treatment for his injured back.
In August, the police dismissed Kim’s request for reinvestigation because it happened before Propofol was known as a drug. Also, the statute of limitations had already expired.
Through the investigations, the police revealed that the allegations of Kim Gwang Seob about the Propofol and mistreatment were all false.
