Model Seo Jung Hee recently confessed that she was living like a hostage during her 32 years of marriage with former comedian and current priest, Seo Se Won.

On March 12th, Seo Se Won went through his fourth hearing at Seoul Central District Court for alleged domestic violence against his wife. In May of last year, investigations began when Seo Jung Hee first sued her husband for violence towards her in the parking lot of their home and the two have been in and out of the court since then.

Seo Jung Hee stood as a witness on the fourth hearing and spoke up openly about their marriage.

She continued, “I was beaten by Seo Se Won almost every day for the last 32 years. I was also choked to a point that my tongue and eyes were popping out.” Seo Jung Hee added that her life felt threatened during these series of events.

Seo Jung Hee also stated that she believed her husband would change after he became a priest but in fact his violent actions became worse. She confessed, “I was enduring through the marriage and did not consider a divorce because I was scared of my husband.

The court decided to hold another round of trial on April 21st.

Following recent controversy, CoKo Entertainment has finally closed its doors for business after long hardship in its financial status. Kim Jun Ho, a successful gag-man, started the agency with a co-worker, along with many of his fellow performers contracted.

The official announcement following the closure was made on January 24th by the agency themselves mentioning that they will no longer be in business due to its lack of funds.

In the official statement that follows, CoKo Entertainment said,“We thank everyone for all the attention CoKo Entertainment had received until now. Unfortunately, it is hard for us to announce such a grieving news to you all. We’d like to explain a more in-depth story of our financial issues that were brought to public in the recent past along with our opinion and plans for the future.”

The announcement continued, “As we have said in our previous reports, CoKo Entertainment’s CEO Mr. Kim, in partnership with Kim Jun Ho, continued to delay payments for the contracted performers along with their exclusive contract fee. At that point, we decided there were problems in the company’s finances. After further investigations, we found out that Mr. Kim had embezzled the company’s funds, including the performers’ income from their individual programs.

“Mr. Kim had run away to the United States by the time the crime was found out. The major shareholders have sued Mr. Kim for his crime and provided the police with solid evidence. The staff has made all efforts possible in order to revive the company and its finances. However, after Mr. Kim’s run away, many additional debts arose. Currently in January, the amount of debt reached millions of dollars. After such situations, the executives of CoKo Entertainment have agreed that revival of the company is impossible, thus ending its business.”

In addition to their current situations, Kim Jun Ho, as a representative staff of the company, had helped with their financial problems. The statement says, “to help performers who were not being paid, Kim Jun Ho used his own money to completely pay for those who were in need of money immediately. In fact, we are giving our best to completely pay for our part-time workers as soon as possible.

The company ended their official statement with a rather sad finish, “We, CoKo Entertainment, apologize to our part-time workers, contracted performers, and all those who have watched and paid attention to us.

In late 2014, news came to light that the co-CEO of CoKo Entertainment, Kim Woo Jung, had embezzled company fundsand disappeared. Soon after, news arose of discord within the company with the revelation that its comedians had yet to be paid, along with other concerns of income distribution and unfair contracts. Continuing investigations, on January 12th, 2015, Kim Woo Jung was also charged with investment fraud. Despite the turmoil during the past few months, staff of the company haveremained vigilant alongside Kim Jun Ho as investigations continued.

Coko Entertainment Artists and Staff Unable To Be Paid

Coko Entertainment find themselves having trouble paying their staff and artist signed under them following the sudden disappearance of their CEO Kim Woo Jong, who allegedly embezzled money from the company.

On November 27th, CEO Kim Woo Jong disappeared with an uncertain amount of the company’s funds, which were meant to pay their artists, staff, future projects and current businesses. It was revealed in a latest update that the CEO had halted payments to artists who had either opted out of the company or whose contracts had expired since August.

Currently, Coko Entertainment is attempting to figure out how much the CEO had taken off with, as the unknown amount has put a halt on police investigations, who are also attempting to track down the missing businessman. A representative with the company stated, “We are focusing on trying to figure out exactly how much of the company’s money as well as money that was meant for artists and employees.”

Once a certain amount of how much money went missing is found and how much damage this has caused, the agency is planning to also request an investigation from Interpol. Coko Entertainment and police have already released a warrant out for Kim Woo Jung.

However, the current problem still raises the question, will the artists under the company take legal action soon? For now, they have remained quiet in hopes the agency will figure things out.

“Since the artists were all with us for a long time, they want to help the company figure the situation out,” said the agency.

But this non-payment trend will surely become a problem for the artists, as their livelihood depends on getting paid. Many artists have already nullified their contract with the company, while others have decided to resign. Either way, many have still not been paid from August to November.

Coko Entertainment was the host of the Busan National Comedy Festival and focused on expanding the culture of comedy within Korea. With Kim Jun Ho at the forefront, the company made a name as an innovator in the industry but are faced with a giant obstacle through this incident.

All the employees are on an indefinite hiatus as well. Coko Entertainment stated, “Kim Jun Ho who spend so much time and money is wounded, we are trying to figure things out with Kim Jun Ho leading everyone.”

An arrest warrant for former Korean Air Vice President Cho Hyuna after prosecutors found her guilty of violating aviation law, along with other charges such as coercion and interference in the execution of duty. 

On December 24th, Yonhap News reported that prosecutors received the arrest warrant for Cho Hyuna, the daughter of Korean Air’s CEO, for her recent “macadamia nuts” incident. After investigations began last week, Cho Hyuna allegedly denied that she had physically assaulted the said employee, which did not coincide with with passengers’ testimonies after witnessing her push the flight attendant.

The prosecutors in charge of the case also received an arrest warrant for another executive after it was found that he ordered existing Korean Air employees to delete the original report of the incident.

Meanwhile, a hearing is scheduled for next week in order to review the arrest warrant for Cho Hyuna.

Cho Hyuna, the eldest daughter of Korean Air CEO Cho Yang Ho, tendered her resignation earlier this month after receiving criticisms and outrage for her “macadamia nuts” incident on board one of Korean Air’s flights. It was reported that the has ordered the cabin crew chief to leave after serving her macadamia nuts in a bag instead of a plate.  The incident caused the flight, along with more than 250 passengers, to have a 11-minute delayed arrival at Incheon International Airport.
