Shoo admits to gambling in court
At a trial held Thursday, prosecutors asked the singer whether she admitted to all charges of gambling against her: she replied “yes.”
Last month, Shoo was indicted for gambling 26 times in various locations, including Macau in China, from August 2016 to May 2018 and spending a total of 790 million won ($699,628).
According to Korean law, gambling is punishable by up to 10 million won in fines, and habitual gambling is punishable by up to three years in prison or a 20 million won fine.
After the trial, Shoo told the press, “I’m sorry for causing trouble.”
A second trial will be held on Feb. 7.
