08JAN2015 [NEWS] Junsu breaks silence about fraud accusation
JYJ member Junsu’s agency broke the silence on Thursday about the fraud accusation against the idol raised by Korean builders in December.
“Junsu is not involved in the hotel business, so he has nothing to do with the recent development of the case,” his label C-JeS Entertainment said.
The explanation comes after two Korean construction companies filed a complaint against Junsu for alleged fraud in mid-December. They accused the 33-year-old idol of not paying back the money they claimed to have lent him, worth 5 billion won ($4.5 million).
The builders constructed the luxurious Toscana Hotel on Korea’s southern resort island of Jejudo, in which Junsu invested 28.5 billion won. The 61-room hotel opened in September.
In a complaint filed at Gangnam Police Station, the builders claimed that they lent the money to Junsu on two occasions over the past two years to help him repay bank loans and they secured his promissory note to pay them back by September 2015.
Junsu, however, dismissed the accusation, vowing to take legal action against the builders for embezzling construction expenses.
“We have now secured solid evidence that the two companies charged us double the amount of the construction expenses,” a hotel spokesperson said in a press release.
Gangnam Police Station is scheduled to launch a probe into the case soon.

Note: In the news above, it said Junsu is 33 years old. We all know that’s not true, the right one is 30 years old (Korean age, based on his birthday in 15 December 1986).
