And on October 30th, after a thorough investigation, Judge Myung Jae Kwon decided Ahn Joon Young and Kim Yong Bum’s arrest warrants were valid and both the producers will be placed under arrest. The pretrial detention warrants that have been given to both guilty parties, keeps them from any attempt in destroying evidence or from fleeing the country for the time being. Because everyone else involved had either acknowledged their crimes or found not guilty, the remaining arrest warrants have been dismissed.
