My Name Star Han So-hee Issues Fresh Statement In Fraud Case Involving Her Mother: 'She Won't Take Responsibility For This Debt'
‘My Name’ actress Han So Hee’s agency has now released a statement on the debts incurred by her mother using the actor's name. 

The recent development comes after she was recently landed in controversy after reports suggested that her mother Ms Shin has been sued in a 100,00,000 KRW (10,000USD) worth fraud case. The shocking issue surfaced after Han So Hee was sued for violating the Electronic Financial Transactions Act as her mother used an account under the actress’ name for the debts.


The statement by 9ato Entertainment said that Han So-hee's mother had opened a bank account under her daughter’s name when she was a minor. She then used the account to borrow money without the actor's knowledge. Later, she used it to borrow money without her knowledge. The matter also reached the court which said that there is no evidence of Han So-hee's involvement in the debt. 

Now, Han So Hee has revealed that she will not 'take responsibility for this debt'.

In a fresh statement issued by Han So Hee’s agency 9ato Entertainment on Monday,  revealed that she has no involvement with the issue and she will not 'take responsibility for this debt'.


Soompi quoted the agency statement, “Hello. This is 9ato Entertainment. We are giving the following explanation regarding the news of actress Han So Hee’s mother.”

“(Han So Hee’s) mother Ms Shin used a bank account under Han So Hee’s name in the process of borrowing money. Ms Shin arbitrarily opened the bank account when Han So Hee was a minor, and she used that account to borrow money without Han So Hee’s knowledge. Similar cases happened a few more times. There was even a case involving the forgery of a private document. Due to these series of cases, a civil trial was carried out, and the court drew a clear line that Han So Hee had nothing to do with these cases,” it continued.


Citing last year's court order on the fraud case, it added, “The Ulsan District Court’s final ruling on April 8, 2021, stated, 'Money was borrowed using an account under Han So Hee’s name, but it is insufficient to acknowledge that Han So Hee is jointly responsible for the debt due to this, so there is no evidence to acknowledge (her involvement).' We apologize for causing concern with private matters rather than an acting project. However, we are giving an additional explanation again because we are hoping that there will be no other victims in the future.”

“Furthermore, we are additionally revealing that Han So Hee has no plans to take responsibility for this debt. This is to block from the source the actions of (Ms Shin) using her daughter’s name to borrow money and abusing the fact that her daughter is a famous celebrity to borrow money. It is true that (Han So Hee) cannot cut the moral ties between mother and daughter. She feels apologetic for people who were harmed against her will. Despite this, we hope that incidents like these will not be repeated through this strong response. Please be understanding,” it concluded.


Han So-hee was seen last year in the Netflix K-drama My Name. The series also featured Park Hee-soon and Ahn Bo-hyun. She will also be seen in the four-episode mini-series Soundtrack #1 alongside Park Hyung-sik and it is all set to premiere on Disney+ On March 23.
