Former Black Swan Member Hyeme to Receive No Sentence for Her Fraud Charges

According to an exclusive report, former Black Swan member Hyeme will receive no sentence for her fraud charges that were filed in 2020.

On Nov. 9 last year, Dispatch reported that Hyeme was dealing with a lawsuit over allegations of scamming a man of approximately 50 million won (nearly 45,200 USD). He, thus, filed a criminal complaint against the female idol on Oct. 26.

The report went on to say that the former Black Swan member Hyeme will receive no sentence from her fraud charges due to insufficient evidence that was presented this past May regarding the issue.

This fraud lawsuit started in late 2020 when a man accused Hyeme of scamming more than 50 million won, which included the loan of five million won, living expenses, the deposit and monthly rent for her officetel, and purchases on a credit card.

The man claimed that he met the former member of Black Swan through social media in December 2018 and communicated with each other on Instagram before meeting personally. In April 2019, Hyeme was said to have opened up her financial issues because of a family problem, and so she asked the man to lend her five million won.

Following that, it was reported that Hyeme went on to ask for more support from the man, who clarified that he is not dating the K-pop idol. It was also reported that the singer spent most of the money on entertainment expenses and allegedly used the officetel for dating other men in secret.
