Na Han-il, 54, an actor and movie producer, was arrested Tuesday for getting an illegal loan of 10 billion won ($7.4 million) from an unidentified mutual savings bank through a broker, prosecutors said.
Seoul Central District Court issued a warrant for Na’s arrest Monday due to concerns about the possibility of evidence being destroyed.
Na is accused of borrowing the money without providing collateral through a broker in 2006. He is accused of offering bribes to facilitate the granting of the loan. The broker was also arrested.
He allegedly relied on illegal means to borrow the money to finance a movie he was producing. At the time, Na was the president of a film company. He recently starred in SBS drama “The Drum.”
