[HanCinema's News] Kang Sung-wook's Lawyer and Best Friend Resigned From Case After Only Six Days

2019/08/01 | 788 views | Permalink

Court filings show that the first attorney representing Kang Sung-wook last year when he was arrested was only the attorney of record for six days. But even more surprising is the attorney's identity. Jang Cheon was not just Kang Sung-wook's lawyer, but his best friend. We know this because he appeared on 'Heart Signal', the variety show Kang Sung-wook was appearing in at the time.

The exact reason for the dismissal is unknown. The attorney may have decided that he was too close to the case as Kang Sung-wook's best friend. He may have been disgusted by the descriptions of Kang Sung-wook's conduct, which was lewed even if Kang Sung-wook's version of events is to be believed. Kang Sung-wook may have fired him. A combination of the three is also possible.

What is known is that courts sided with Kang Sung-wook's accuser, who alleged that Kang Sung-wook took her to his home in Busan in August of 2017 with an intent to forcibly have sexual intercourse with her. The woman in question was an employee of the club with whom Kang Sung-wook was drinking. Other employees were also present at that time.

In addition to 'Heart Signal' on demand services for the dramas "This Life Is Our First Life" and "Shall We Live Together" have also been suspended following his sentence. Kang Sung-wook's roles in both dramas were minor.
