Choi Jong-hoon Had Altercation With Press After Attending Church Service

Former singer and convicted sex offender Choi Jong-hoon had an altercation with the press after attending a church service. The media tried to secure an interview with the actor, but he got annoyed while his mother came to his rescue and called his sexual offense "no big deal."

"The Fact" released a video of Choi Jong-hoon, titled "'Choi Jong-hoon's Group Char Room' Choi Choi Jong-hoon, Two Months After Being Released" on YouTube. Here, he could be seen annoyed by the questions thrown at him.

AllKpop noted that the 31-year-old star had his long hair tied back into a ponytail and wore glasses and a mask on. A reporter tried to ask him questions for an interview at the church's parking lot, but he started acting up.

He asked how they knew that he was in the church, asking if the people there had leaked his whereabouts. He, then, revealed he also had a "bad trauma" and the turn of events was shocking for him.

"What can I say if you just shove the voice recorder in my face like that?" he continued. Choi Jong-hoon called his mom, saying the reporters were suddenly interviewing him.

His mom rushed to his side and yelled at the media, asking why they asked her son those questions. She, then, told them to leave and questioned why they were making a "fuss over something that was no big deal."

The mother threatened them that God would reprimand them, doing those things to someone trying to live a life in faith. She added God would automatically solve everything when time passed and the result would be all okay-all they had to do was wait and see.

For starters, Choi Jong-hoon faced sexual assault accusations and illegally filmed a woman with Jung Joon-young, former Burning Sun MD Kim, office worker Kwon and former entertainment agency employee Heo Mo. The South Korean court sentenced him and Jung Joon-young five years imprisonment for gang raping drunk and unconscious women, per BBC.

Jung also faced a different charge for filming the assault and distributing the clip. He underwent 80 hours of sexual violence treatment courses and was permanently banned from working with children.

He started his imprisonment on May 9, 2019, and was released on Nov. 8, 2021, serving 30 months. Alternatively, Joong-young would be out on Oct. 1, 2025, after serving five years in prison, 80 hours of sexual violence education and employment restriction for five years.
