I’m gradually forgotten K-actor Kang Ji Hwan even existed, seriously making the effort to erase his works and existence so to move on and not feel even slightly ambivalent about his onscreen performance versus real life current criminal incarceration pending trial for sexually assaulting two women while claiming to be so drunk. It helps that he’s not in the news anymore but this week K-ent is reporting that the Korean court has extended his detention in jail another two months as requested by the prosecutor. He’s been in detention rather than out on bail because the prosecutor was afraid he would destroy evidence, and his initial two month detention period is up so the prosecutor asked for another two month extension and got it. Fine by me, I just wonder why all the other recent alleged star criminals like Seungri, Jung Joon Young, etc. are still walking free during their investigation?
Because there are big powerful influential people behind them.
2019 was a bad year for K entertainment. Rapist actors, divorces,… For a conservative society they are no better than others.
As a person who has been sexually assaulted, I only hope he rots in hell.
Surprised to read this. I live in another country and thought his body movements were very effeminate, particularly in Lie To Me. I thought he was gay. Boy was I dumb.
@Lede3957 I too thought he was too effeminate and there was something about that voice that made me thought for a moment he was gay. I couldn’t understand all the hype and fangirling over him over at Dramabeans back then . ?
His dramas are still airing in my country, they had just ended Monster and started airing Hong Gil Dong on another channel. I was his fan since Capital Scandal, over a decade ago, now his dramas are ruined now. His rumored prostitution scandal before Monster was a red flag something big would happen next.
I know the 2 female victims are traumatized but then again why would they want to go to his house and drink knowing that they already had drinks earlier. Isn’t there company regulations that employees do not go beyond a certain line in terms of being professional. It is just asking for trouble going beyond the call of duty. Why not go home after the get together. They are employees of the company he is signed on to and they should know the scandals about him. Something smells not right even though he admit his guilt.
I’m, or was a big fan of this actor, can’t believe he would do such a thing, good looking, talented too. Why would he do such a thing, makes no sense and at his age, they need to quit drinking over there.
Seems the young people do a lot of drinking to the point of blacking out..it most be difficult for all of them to date, going out they are constantly watched and followed by so called fans..haven’t heard anything lately. Does anyone ?????
NO SE LO QUE PASO ECXACTAMENTE POR QUE SIEMPRE HAY DOS VERSIONES PERO EL ES MI IDOLO ME ENCANTA Y ME GUSTA MUCHO COMO ACTOR ESPERO QUE NO LE AFECTE MUCHO EN SU CARRERA SERIA UNA LASTIMA NO VERLO ACTUAR Y PUES A MI EN LO PERSONAL ME ENCANTA
Where is he now? I still have doubt that he is 100% guilty, being famous you have to face “crazy” fans, that might target of scandals. Be strong and never giving up acting. Dont drink till get drunk and black out or better still forget liquors. Stand up and never let failure get to your heart.
