A parent who received 500,000 won every payday and 4 million won from the late teacher Lee Young-seung for his son’s medical expenses.
He has since reported that he has insisted he never asked for money.
However, this parent sent his account number directly through a text message, and there was also evidence that the actual amount received seemed to be more than 4 million won.
This is an exclusive report by reporter Cha Joo-hyuk.

Left hand wrapped in a bandage after undergoing scar removal surgery.
On the day of surgery, the parents of the ‘plastic bottle accident’ sent two photos.
To the parent who said, ‘It’s really hard,’ Teacher Lee Young-seung repeated his apology four times.
He even offered to help with 500,000 won for ten months.
In fact, I remitted 500,000 won every month from April to November 2019.
Why did the teacher who originally promised 5 million won only send 4 million won?
Text messages exchanged between two people ten메이저사이트 days after the surgery.
When I told them I would send it over the weekend if they gave me their account number, the parents said they were grateful and gave me their Nonghyup account number.
Ten days later, I received a text message thanking me for remitting the treatment fee.
It appears that the treatment fee, that is, the first plastic surgery fee of 1 million won, was first paid over the weekend between March 2nd and 3rd.
It is presumed that an additional 4 million won was transferred over the next 8 months, and the promised 5 million won was paid in full.
Nevertheless, the parents mentioned a second surgery on December 31st.
The two spoke on the phone for 7 minutes and 27 seconds.

“Even if there is no direct expression of ‘give me money’, if it is structured to the point where the person feels fear and does something they are not obligated to do, I believe it constitutes a threat.”
The parent in question is an assistant branch manager in charge of deposits and insurance at a financial institution.
His duties are currently suspended on standby status.
As account cancellations and deposit withdrawals continued to occur immediately after the incident became known, the financial institution in question is closely monitoring the situation and considering referring it to the personnel committee.
The police, who secured two cell phones belonging to teacher Lee Young-seung, plan to summon three people, including the parents, after the Chuseok holiday.
