While MBC’s “Radio Star” Dongho revealed that he was the victim of a $1 billion won ($1,147,662 AUD) scam.
On the talk show, Dongho said that after he quit UKISS, he bought a villa for a price that seemed cheaper and got the keys to the estate from an alleged friend. Three weeks after Dongho moved in, the rightful owner turned up and demanded that Dongho move out. The police were called and in and it turned out that the real estate agent and friend of the owner had tricked Dongho and the house was still in the name of the original owner.
According to Dongho, it was a blessing in disguised because when he told his now-wife (then-friend) at the time, she started crying which in turn moved Dongho.
“It’s because of that I think that made us grow closer together.”
