On the episode of 'Fatal Blow' to be aired on April 24, Han Hyun Jung's lawsuit and its in-depth coverage will unfold.
Han is reported to have invested $2.6 million in a business model through a friend of an old friend, with a full refund clause in the contract. The plaintiff and the defendant have dueled through their third trial in court with no compromise in sight.
After repeated failures in various businesses, ranging from gold earphone jewelry to gold sculptures, Han requested a refund but her business partner refused to grant her request. Last September, a lawsuit was filed.
Han stated that "When we looked back at the financial statement and all the files related to the business plans that failed, we realized that nothing was done right. This is a deliberate fraud."
She added that "About $1 million was transferred into Jung's mistress' personal account and later invested in stocks. Plus, it was revealed that Jung was a delinquent borrower during the time of my investments."
'Fatal Blow' will air on April 24.
