A blackmailer threatened to kill Apink members because they had a blind date with would-be actors on a reality program
The blackmailer who threatened to kill Apink members made a statement about the motive of his crime.
On June 15, he called a Korean media outlet and said "I thought it's unfair because false news has been reported again and again. I didn't threaten to kill Apink members because I was accused by the girl group's agency. I didn't really intend to kill the members".
And he added, "I called the agency just twice. I've been a big fan of Apink for 6 years, and I've spent a lot of time and money. By the way, I was very upset when I watched the Apink members having a blind date with would-be actors on a reality program. I called Apink's agency to complain about letting the members have the blind date, but the agency said they just don't know about it. That's why I called the police".
He also said "I will never deliver myself to the police, but what I want to say is I have no desire to hurt Apink".
Well, what do you think? I think he's just crazy.
Meanwhile, he called the police and threatened to kill the Apink members on June 14. More than 5 police officers were immediately sent to Plan A Entertainment's office, while police officers have been also positioned around Apink's practice room to protect the members. The members, who are currently preparing for their comeback were at the practice room at the time.
