A man who was only labeled as ‘A’ by authorities, has just been sentenced to prison. ‘A’ is a man in his 40’s who openly claimed that he was Moon Chae Yeon’s boyfriend, and the actress pressed charges once she decided that she had enough of the harassment. ‘A’ wrote false messages on a blog and more, harassing the actress on multiple occasions. After seeing that ‘A’ showed no remorse for his actions, the court charged him for defamation of character.
