Kang Sung-hoon appeal is delayed
The delay came as Kang recently changed lawyers. He asked the Seoul Northern District Court for more time to prepare.
Reports said that Kang appointed a lawyer who is a friend to avoid high legal fees.
He was accused of fraud in 2009 and was found guilty of borrowing 900 million won ($796,000) in February from three friends and failing to pay them back. He was ordered to serve two and a half years in prison.
At the time of the ruling, the court said it made such a decision not only because he admitted the charge, but also due to other evidence, including his bank statements and a promissory note. A lender surnamed Hwang had also not recovered the funds.
Following sentencing, Kang was taken to prison from the courtroom.
He was kept at a detention center from March to September 2012.
