Amid controversy over the ‘fake pregnancy test’ that emerged in the recent메이저사이트 wedding commotion between former national fencing team member Nam Hyun-hee (43) and fraud convict Jeon Cheong-jo (27), the government has decided to block the import of the product to prevent criminal abuse. .
The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety announced on the 27th that it has collaborated with the Korea Customs Service to designate products subject to priority management and block import customs clearance to prevent fake pregnancy tests from entering the country through overseas direct purchases. He continued, “To confirm pregnancy, you must use only a test certified by the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety,” and “When purchasing, you must check the ‘in vitro diagnostic medical device’ label on the product container and packaging.”
A pregnancy test is a medical device that indicates pregnancy by checking the urine for chorionic gonadotropin, which is secreted about 7 to 10 days after fertilization. The reason why pregnancy tests, which are already widely used in Korea, suddenly became the subject of public interest is because of the news of the marriage of Mr. Nam and Mr. Jeon, which recently heated up the media.
Previously, the two revealed their marriage plans through an interview with Women’s Chosun on the 23rd. During this process, Jeon introduced herself as a third-generation chaebol male from the United States, but it was confirmed that she was in fact a woman with several fraud convictions. Afterwards, she confessed to Nam through the media that she thought she was pregnant and that she had been fooled by the pregnancy test that Jeon had given her.
At that time, Mr. Nam revealed that Mr. Jeon had undergone sex reassignment surgery and said, “The test he gave me showed two lines (positive). “I thought it was strange, so I did it several times, and there were two lines in all of them, so I thought there must be a high chance of pregnancy,” he said. “When I thought about it, they were all tests given by Jeon, and each time, there was no wrapping paper.” At the same time, he confessed, “I tried to go to the gynecologist to get a diagnosis, but Jeon kept blocking me.”
The fake pregnancy test that Mr. Jeon is believed to have given to Mr. Nam can be easily found on overseas direct purchase online sites. This product, which is sold for around 5,000 won, waits 3 to 5 minutes after contact with water and two red lines, indicating positive, appear on the screen. The seller is introducing this for April Fool’s Day.
