Lee Soo was questioned by police in 2009 for allegedly engaging in child prostitution. At the time, he admitted buying sex, but claimed that he didn’t know that she was a minor. Lee Soo, who was handed over to trial on charges of violating the Youth Protection Act, was suspended from indictment in 2010 on the condition of taking “John School (education to prevent sex trafficking).” The fact that he was a first offender also served with a light punishment.
