The contents of the last phone conversation between Choi Jin Shil and a magazine reporter was made known to the public. Choi Jin Shil is believed to have ended her life shortly after ending the phone conversation.
The contents of Choi Jin Shi’s phone conversation with the male reporter was published in the November issue of Queen and released today.
Choi Jin Shil had called him after receiving a call from Baek who had spread the rumors about her being a money lender on the 28th of last month. Choi expressed, “It’s really bone-chilling. I thought I was filming some kind of horror movie. How did she (Baek) find my phone number? Really that woman’s voice was so scary that I didn’t know what to do. That woman must probably have some kind of powerful “back”? Even though she is young, is she a daughter of some powerful family?”
Even afterwards, Choi Jin Shil said that Baek had made one-sided phone calls to Choi multiple times during the day, and that every time a call came, she said she felt like she was getting a ‘call from the devil,’ Choi Jin Shil said she felt like she was constantly being mocked/jeered by the young woman.
Reporter Kim revealed, “When Baek’s identity was traced and revealed two days later, Choi Jin Shil called me up again but felt more depressed.”
Choi Jin Shil told me, “Since they have found the person who spread the rumors about the debt, I thought that people would now believe my truth (her innocence). But at the To-ron message board many people chose to believe the rumors rather than the truth. Even now many people still believe that I am the evil/vicious loan-shark who drove Ahn Jae Hwan to his death.”
“I am [very] scared (lit. trembling). If it continues to go on like this, I really think that I am going to die”, Choi said over the phone.
Choi Jin Shil then continued, “If I die, then would they believe my truth? Even though my name is ‘Choi Jin Shil (means truth)’ people are calling me ‘Choi Ga Shik (means fake).’ Isn’t this really sad? Although I am sorry to my children, instead of being a mother that is shunned/scorned/pointed the finger/blame by the people of the world, wouldn’t it be better to be a mother whose truth was revealed after dying.” Her intentions being made clear.
Reporter Kim told Choi Jin Shil’s family to keep a close watch of Choi Jin Shil since she (Choi) had told him that she wanted to die, but the day when Choi Jin Shil came home, after speaking with her mom she went to the bathroom and told her mother that she was okay and for her to go to bed.
