Three men were arrested Monday in connection with a break-in at the home of actor Kim Rae-won, 28, according to the Seoul Yongsan Police Precinct.
On the morning of Jan. 17, burglars broke into Kim’s residence and stole just over 100 million won ($74,100) in cash, checks and trophies.
At the time, Kim was away filming a movie and both his parents were out. Kim notified the police later that day, after his mother alerted him to the incident. (Kim starred in “Gourmet” and “Love Story in Harvard” among others).
According to police, the three men were in Hannam-dong, central Seoul, looking for unoccupied houses. They were caught when they tried to use a stolen check at a Seoul gas station. (JoongAng Daily)
