The manager of movie actor Shin Hyun-joon filed a complaint with the police against the 41-year-old for assault, according to the Gangnam Police Station, Thursday.
Police said that the manager, only identified as Jang, who has been working with the actor for the past five years, claimed that he was assaulted by Shin after having a conversation at a bar in Sangsu-dong, Mapo-gu, early this month.
“The content of the written complaint is not enough to prove Shin’s charges, so we need additional investigations,” a police officer said. “After confirming the complaint with Jang, we will summon Shin and investigate further.”
Shin made his debut in 1990 in the movie “The General’s Son” and has appeared in numerous films and dramas ever since.
Two of his most famous works include the drama “Stairways to Heaven” (2003, SBS) and the film “Barefoot Gi-Bong” (2006). He published a photo-essay “Shin Hyun-joon’s Confessions” last year, which documented his personal story about life and religion. (Korea Times)
