“All the accusations are not fact.”
That was Jung Sun Hee’s reply with regards to the accusations directed towards her in the aftermath of the death of her husband, Ahn Jae Hwan. Although police have pointed out that it was death by suicide, Ahn Jae Hwan’s family members believe that he might have been murdered instead.
Jung Sun Hee appeared at Seoul Nowon’s police station yesterday morning at around 7 and underwent a gruelling investigation which lasted about 4.5 hours. Sun Hee explained her actions against most of the accusations directed towards her in the past weeks and revealed her own thoughts in the process.
After concluding the interview, the police revealed the content to reporters.
1. Was he tormented by stress from the accumulated debts? He was very worried before his death but he wasn’t being threatened.
Ahn Jae Hwan had been borrowing money from banks and even money lenders for the required capital for his many business ventures like his restaurant, cosmetics, etc. However, the failure of his ventures led to him suffering immense stress, worried about not being able to pay up the accrued debts. This was especially so during July to August this year where he was at his wit’s end. Jung Sun Hee felt that stress led to him deciding to commit suicide for a way out. But while alive, he wasn’t being threatened or anything by the money leaders.
2. Was Jung Sun Hee the guarantor for his debts? Yes. But she didn’t know the exact amount of debt that Ahn Jae Hwan had accumulated.
Jung Sun Hee replied that she was the guarantor for Ahn Jae Hwan’s debts. That’s why her house was going to be auctioned off by the money lenders. But she didn’t know the exact amount of debt that Ahn Jae Hwan had accumulated and didn’t quite know the details about her guarantorship.
3. Being kidnapped and held capture? No such thing.
She denied Ahn Mi Sun’s (Ahn Jae Hwan’s sister) allegations. Jung Sun Hee said that neither she or Ahn Jae Hwan had been held against their will by the money lenders. But Ahn Mi Sun told police that Jung Sun Hee had told her mother on 25th that they had been kidnapped by the money lenders. Jung Sun Hee denied that she had said that and they had not been held against their will.
4. Why didn’t report Ahn Jae Hwan missing? Stress of being a celebrity.
Jung Sun Hee admitted that she had text Ahn Mi Sun. She said in the text, “Ahn Jae Hwan is well and fine, no problems, don’t worry, please don’t call the police”. Sun Hee replied that she didn’t call the police because of a lack of substantial evidence and also because they were both celebrities. If this was revealed to the public, it will have a negative impact on their careers.
