Article: What's happening with actress Kim Ji Young... "went no contact after borrowing money" vs "taking legal action"

1. [+1,065, -60] So the parents of this ex-boyfriend... not only paid rent to help her get her own place, but is now driving for taxis at night to pay that money back? Why would you go so overboard for someone who isn't even your daughter-in-law? Just your son's girlfriend??? And this ex-boyfriend is so funny, too. If he wanted to get her her own place, he should be the one driving taxis at night, why are you making your old father do it for you? ㅠㅠ 

2. [+614, -5] She's only a high schooler senior but she's already out here living with different men, leeching off of them... I can already tell what kind of person she is. She's in an industry where even a squeaky clean image will barely get you far enough but with a scandal of this size already under her belt, she won't be getting anywhere. A pity at such a young age.

3. [+361, -14] She's already acting like a pr*stitute when she's not even legal yet? Hilarious ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ these men are fools for falling for her too

4. [+243, -5] I've never seen a leech live a happy life... Pay back what you owe!! If your acting sucks too much to make a living off of, you should be getting another job to pay for yourself.. why leech off of others.. tsk tsk

5. [+109, -1] So she's claiming that she had to leave home because of her abusive family... but now she's claiming she's seeking legal advice with her parents?? What's the truth??????

6. [+58, -1] She's only an '05er, still a minor... and already she's acting greedy with money. Kids like her need to be exiled from the industry.

7. [+55, -1] Wait... she was born in 2005 and is already living with a boyfriend? 

8. [+46, -0] What legal action is she seeking? You're the one who didn't pay back your debt. Just say sorry and pay it back. As if your dirty private life isn't bad enough, now you're seeking legal action for it? Her personality seems stubborn and exhausting.

1. [+568, -3] I don't know who she is but why is she threatening legal action when this would all be resolved if she just paid her debt... tsk tsk

2. [+337, -1] What legal action? Just pay back the money.

3. [+137, -5] After reading her statement, it doesn't like the man's lying... She's really off to a terrible start to 2023... her only career as a celebrity is over, she has to hire a lawyer despite having no money...

4. [+106, -0] If the claims by the ex are true, she's a scary kid. Kids these days are no joke.

5. [+92, -32] So she doesn't want to pay her debt back but she's considering legal action for defamation ㅋㅋ

6. [+46, -0] I'm more shocked that she was living with a man at that age

7. [+39, -1] If you have money to hire a lawyer, just pay your debt back with it instead~ stop with this victim cosplay

8. [+38, -3] She's not even 20 years old yet and she's already living with a man? And the ex's parents are a mess, too, for paying for her place as well.

1. [+553] Seeing as how she's only an '05er but already has tattoos and is living with men... I don't feel that bad for her ^^

2. [+177] She was just using them

3. [+558] Just pay your debt back

4. [+569] What exactly are you taking legal action for... Just pay the money back

5. [+15] Shouldn't the legal action be taken by your ex-boyfriend? You need to pay back money you've borrowed.. tsk tsk

6. [+32] If you have money for a lawyer, you have money to pay your debt back

7. [+69] Just pay it back...

8. [+82] Wait, it's already been nine years since 'Jang Bori'? Time flies

9. [+88] I'm staying neutral for now
- [+27] I don't believe her judging from their Katalk conversations

10. [+29] Well, her statement never says "it's not the truth" or "my side is different from the truth"... which means she's not exactly denouncing her ex's claims! ㅎㅎ

11. [+1] She never denies his claims as lies so I guess they're truth. I'd just pay him back if I were her.

12. [+20] Sounds like the ex got 'dating scammed'... this is common with Afreeca streamers, too.
