A former child actor and a former member of the national equestrian team has been accused of threatening his ex-girlfriend with footage and pictures he took in secret.
According to SBS 8 O’Clock News on Wednesday, the former child actor Kim, who participated in three Asian Games as a national equestrian athlete, threatened the victim A by sending pictures and videos taken without her consent and was recently indicted.
Kim reportedly bullied A continuously for about a month, harassing her with photos and videos he took secretly, and even demanding money. He also visited her house and repeatedly honked to deliberately make a fuss when A didn’t meet him. A even attempted suicide after failing to overcome Kim’s threats.
After being sued by A, Kim admitted to sending photos and messages, but he is known to have stated, “We were just joking around with each other. If I had any malicious intent, I would have sent the photos to other people, not to her. I went to see A because she said she’s going to kill herself, and I wanted to stop her. What I meant was ‘I can’t live without you.'”
Meanwhile, Kim has been revealed to be Kim Seok, who is currently teaching students at a horse riding course in Gyeonggi Province. He debuted in 1997 at the age of six with the film NO.3. Since then, he appeared in the film My Brother and dramas Jang Gil San and Ballad of Seo Dong. The last project he worked on as an actor is the 2009 drama Queen Seondeok.
