One of South Korea’s top comedians and MCs, Kim Yong Man, was arrested for habitual illegal gambling from 2008 to 2011. Unlike many celebrities who deny their charges, Kim Yong Man admitted most of what he was accused of. He seemed to sincerely regret what he did. Despite his openness and honesty, at his trial on June 27th, he was sentenced to eight months in prison and two years of probation.

After the trial, Kim Yong Man said “I’ll humbly accept the result … I won’t appeal.” He also added, “I believe life has many perspectives … I won’t disappoint those who gave me courage and love. I will make sure that I become a righteous person to pay them back.”
