Actress Song Hye Kyo recently appeared on an episode of Channel A's "Poongmon Show". During the episode, the actress revealed how she was once blackmailed by someone she once knew.

As previously reported by Koreaboo, actress Song Hye Kyo was once blackmailed together with her mother. Apparently, the person behind the threats was someone the actress once worked with.

Back in January of 2005, Song Hye Kyo's mother received a random letter. However, when she opened it, the letter contained a letter that blackmailed them.

The "blackmailer" asked Song Hye Kyo's mother to give him/her a staggering 250 million Korean won (KRW). The amount was equivalent to over $220,000 at that time.

The letter also specifically said that if Song Hye Kyo's mother fails to give the said amount, the "blackmailer" would pour hydrochloric acid onto their bodies. The "blackmailer" has apparently prepared huge amounts of the toxic liquid.

Song Hye Kyo's mother then immediately moved the actress out to an undisclosed location. Song Hye Kyo's mother also reported the blackmailing attempt to the police.

After the investigation that ensued, it was found out that the "blackmailer" was Song Hye Kyo's previous manager. The manager has lived with Song Hye Kyo for 3 years.

Song Hye Kyo's mother initially thought that the "blackmailer" was someone who previously asked her family for financial aid. When Song Hye Kyo's mother found out who it actually was, she cried uncontrollably because of the unexpected betrayal.

Song Hye Kyo's mother also did not file a case against her daughter's previous manager. The reason was simple - she does not believe that he [the manager] could not do such thing.

Song Hye Kyo's previous manager was let go by the agency because of not reporting the commission he earned from Song Hye Kyo's photo shoots and spent it randomly. The manager reportedly struggled financially after being laid off and even had to sleep at several public baths.

In other news, Song Hye Kyo expressed that she would like to work with "Goblin" actor Gong Yoo. As reported by Soompi, both the celebrities were in Hong Kong on May 4.

Song Hye Kyo attended a fashion event in the country. Gong Yoo, on the other hand, was in Hong Kong for his fan meet.

Song Hye Kyo was asked whether she would like to do a project with Gong Yoo in the near future. The actress promptly replied that she would love to, if the opportunity comes.
