Singer-turned-artist Cho Young-nam appeared at the Chuncheon District Prosecutors' Office on Friday for questioning about charges that he painted none of the pictures he sold.
Cho is suspected of farming out his paintings to several professionals and selling them under his own name for a huge markup.
He has sold about 30 pictures for more than W100 million (US$1=W1,188). But the true painters were paid a fraction of the money.
Prosecutors say they have ample evidence that Cho claimed to have painted them himself, which would open the way for fraud charges.
