During a phone interview on November 3rd, Kim Min Jong told The Fact, “I was very worried about such things when I participated in this wedding. A lot of people around me think I’m tied to the gangsters, but really I have no ties to them at all. I was simply there because an acquaintance begged me to be there and I couldn’t deny him. I asked my name to not to be mentioned due to this exact reason, but I guess word still got out.”
As to why Son Ji Chang was there Kim Min Jong explained, “He has always been with me ever since we debuted as a duo. He was simply there because I was there.”
The wedding was filled with over 250 boss-level gangster members from all over Korea, and over 200 police forces were on standby surrounding the wedding hall that day in case of an emergency situation.
