In an exclusive report on the South Korean website Dispatch, as translated by Soompi, several allegations surfaced following leaked photos of Park Min Young visiting Kang. Though his business card allegedly states that he is the chairman of Vidente, INBIOGEN, Bucket STUDIO, and Bithumb LIVE, his name is “not publicly listed in relation to these companies.”

In 2016, he received a 2-year and 6-month prison sentence with a probation period of three years. From 2014 to 2015, Kang helped financial corporation “A” with the acquisition and received private placement bonds worth 33.2 billion won (approximately $23 million) and then eventually loaned 9 billion won more, receiving a total of 42.2 billion won in private placement bonds (approximately $29.2 million). He still has about 12 billion won (approximately $8.3 million) of the unpaid debt to “A.””
It turns out that Kang had disappeared from 2016 to 2020. These informants shared, “He went in and out of Thailand often since 2016. He said he’s working on a resort business, but nothing has been confirmed.” Another informer said, “Kang is acquainted with gangsters in Seongnam. He did something in Pattaya, but it is difficult for me to say more.”
