“Parasite” Actor Lee Sun Kyun Also Requests Lie Detector Test
Still, the globally renowned actor and his legal representative have come forward with a significant request after his third investigation.
Legal insiders revealed on December 26 that Lee Sun Kyun has asked for a lie detector test. His defense lawyer formally conveyed this request to the Incheon Police Narcotics Crime Investigation Division.
“The third questioning session felt just like a direct confrontation. The police were quite direct, asking for Lee Sun Kyun’s responses to the manager’s accusations.
If what the manager said was true, Lee Sun Kyun should have tested positive in tests conducted by the National Forensic Service. However, he tested negative.
