A former tenant of actor and singer Rain has been sentenced to prison after being found guilty of spreading false information about the star.
On July 14 at 2 p.m. KST, the Seoul Central District Court sentenced the tenant, A, to 10 months of prison and A was taken into custody by the court. In the first trial, A was sentenced to 10 months imprisonment as well as two years of probation but an appeal lodged on both sides brought the case to a second trial.
The second trial first opened on April 7 but A applied to change the date. Through petitions and objections, A continued to deny the allegations against them. However, just before the court made their final decision, A submitted a letter of apology.
In 2012, Rain filed a lawsuit against A for not paying the rent on the building A had leased from him. A responded by alleging that the walls leaked water and he had lost money to repairs and brought a counteraction against Rain. Rain then filed another lawsuit in 2016 for spreading false accusations.
