Hwang Ui Jo Denied All Scandal: He Filmed the Sex Video with Consent from Former Girlfriend

Responding to the arrest report, Hyomin’s former boyfriend, Hwang Ui Jo, immediately denied all allegations regarding the sex video scandal.

Immediately after the news hit the internet and social media, the star soccer player made an official statement through his law firm.

According to the statement, Hwang Ui Jo did not film the sex video secretly. Instead, the video was taken with the consent of both parties: Hwang Ui Jo and his former girlfriend.

The law firm also explained that Hwang Ui Jo did not circulate the video. Instead, he kept the video privately on his phone. Unfortunately, the national soccer star lost his phone in Greece in November 2022. Since then, he had been receiving threats involving the contents of his phone.  

That is why the illegal filming allegation against Hwang Ui Jo was not true, and the star soccer player remains a victim of this sex video scandal.

“Hwang Ui Jo and his ex-girlfriend had agreed to film the videos before they were leaked.

Since May 7, 2023, Hwang has faced constant blackmail. The blackmailer, who might not be the same person spreading the videos and demanding money, illegally shared these videos of Hwang and his ex-girlfriend.

The videos featured Hwang’s ex-girlfriend. They filmed the video with consent from both parties at the time.

Hwang himself doesn’t have these videos now and didn’t leak them. Instead, he kept them private on his personal phone, which he lost in Greece in November 2022. We presumed that someone intentionally stole the phone.

The blackmailer has used not only the videos but also Hwang’s private messages to threaten him. Their intentions are clear: to harm Hwang Ui Jo. Throughout this ordeal, it’s important to remember that Hwang has been a victim from the start.”
