In an episode of a celebrity investigation program on Channel A, a reporter on the show shared that in January 2005, Song’s mother had received an unidentified blackmail letter.

It read, “I will ruin you and your daughter by pouring hydrochloric acid on your bodies unless you give me 250 million won ($223,520). If you don’t want to see your daughter’s body rotting and melting for the rest of your life, then you should really think about it. I have already prepared a large amount of toxins and hallucinogens.”

A police investigation found that the blackmailer was Song’s former manager, who the actress had worked with for three years.

“Song’s mother was so shocked by the letter that she spent the days in tears,” the reporter said. “But she didn’t press charges against the manager because she didn’t want to believe that he could have done such a thing.”

The manager reportedly decided to blackmail Song after he was fired from Song’s agency over an embezzlement allegation.
