Jung Da Eun recently shared a chat log between herself and Wonho’s lawyer. She revealed that Wonho supposedly stole from her.
“He thinks paying me back 2 million won (~$1700 USD) settles it? I’m speechless. We lived in Yeoksam-dong together before, and we were supposed to split the rent 50/50, but Shin Hoseok didn’t pay his part, so my 10 million won (~$8500 USD) got taken. He also stole all my stuff and sold them online, and he borrowed 3 million won (~$2500 USD) and 5 million won (~$4200 USD) at a time and promised to pay me back. And until 2016, he used the excuse of his balance not being settled at his agency, and when I asked him to pay me back in late 2016, he said his daily spending limit was 1 million won (~$855 USD) so he just sent me that amount for two days.” – Jung Da Eun
Jung Da Eun later to tweeted
“I know exactly what you did in 2008 — that aggravated theft charge at Suwon Detention Centre.”
“I haven’t even gotten started yet. Isn’t [time at] juvenile detention center not a criminal history?”

We will release our official position on this case as soon as possible.”

Netizens accused Jung Da Eun of driving illegally as a minor without a license to which Han Seo Hee responded with

Dispatch has reported that Wonho and Jung Da Eun smoked marijuana together in October 2013, and they were caught by “Jo“, a former Burning Sun director and MD.
“In October 2013, Wonho and Jung Da Eun smoked marijuana while I was in the closet.
I was looking for a Balmain belt in the closet. At that time, someone came into the house. Da Eun and some guy came in. Da Eun called that guy ‘Ho Seok’.”
“We met at a cafe near my house. Wonho took out a zipper bag and showed it to me. There was marijuana in it…We went home.
I asked him where he got it from, but he said it was a secret. But I guessed the person that sold it to him…Yes, it’s true. I smoked marijuana with him. But that’s the truth. It’s also right that Jo was in the closet and heard it.”
