Park Min Young’s agency, Hook Entertainment, has released a statement regarding a recent report about her ex-boyfriend, businessman Kang Jong-hyun. The report, published by the Korean media outlet Dispatch, alleged that Park Min Young received 250 million won (approximately $190,300) in cash from Kang while they were dating.

Hook Entertainment vehemently denied the allegations, stating that the money in question was not a gift to Park Min Young but was instead used for Kang’s business expenses.

Hello. This is Hook Entertainment. We want to convey actress Park Min Young’s stance regarding the Dispatch news that was reported today.

The 250 million won mentioned in the report was only actress Park Min Young’s account being used by Kang Jong Hyun, and [the money] was not used for Park Min Young’s living expenses.
