Ballet dancer Yoon Hye Jin expressed her feelings about her husband Uhn Tae Woong’s prostitution case, saying she “forgave him.”
Yoon Hye Jin started live broadcast on Instagram on April 23. During it, she brought up the topic of the incident four years ago and confessed, “I was completely out of my mind then.”
In 2016, actor Uhm Tae Woong was accused of sexually assaulting a female worker at an adult entertainment establishment. However, he was later cleared of all charges, and the female was sentenced to two and a half years I prison for false accusation.
However, the fact that he visited the prostitution business as a married man was severely criticized. In particular, the incident was a huge blow to his image as he previously appeared in The Return of the Superman with his daughter and presented a friendly father figure. Since then, he only appeared on Excavator (literal translation), released in 2017.
Yoon Hye Jin continued, “Despite everything, I still tried to stay close to my husband and my daughter. Then I thought about how to live my life.” She also teared up before bringing the subject of her husband’s acting career and said, “I’m not saying that I want my husband to resume his acting career. I hope he does, but if he can’t, it can’t be helped. I believe that he should be punished for what he did.”
But she also added, “Yet, looking at him these past few years, my husband seems to have been regretting enough. That’s why wife forgave him, and since I did, I hope people would stop commenting about this.”
When her broadcast was reported, she wrote on her Instagram, “I was off guard. I didn’t expect them to be watching. It was meant to be just between us,” expressing pressure over her broadcast making headlines.
