Hwang Ui-jo’s brother-in-law, who is accused of posting and threatening his personal life disclosure posts, was put on trial while Hwang Ui-jo was recently suspended from the Korea Football Association for illegal filming.

The Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office announced on the 8th that it arrested and indicted Hwang Ui-jo’s brother-in-law A on charges of filming and distributing cameras under the Sexual Violence Punishment Act and threatening retaliation under the Specific Crime Aggravated Punishment Act.

In June, A claimed to be Hwang Ui-jo’s ex-lover and shared photos and videos of Hwang Ui-jo and women on social networking services SNS. In addition, Hwang Ui-jo is accused of claiming that he had a relationship with a number of women and helped them.

Since May, Hwang Ui-jo has been accused of threatening in fact by sending threatening messages suggesting the distribution of filming, saying, “It will be fun if it is released” and “Look forward to it.”

The case goes back to June. A posted photos and videos of Hwang Ui-jo and women on social media, but deleted them after controversy.

Then, on the 26th of the same month, the police began an investigation when Hwang Ui-jo filed a complaint against A, who spread the privacy revelation to Seongdong Police Station in Seoul, on charges of violating the Information and Communication Network Act timely defamation of false facts and threatening.

At that time, Hwang Ui-jo’s side claimed that the video was inside a stolen mobile phone when he played on loan at Olympiacos in Greece’s first division last year, and that it was not taken illegally. The contents of the disclosure were also false, and he/she maintained that he/she had already been threatened several times over the issue and headed to England, where his/her team is located.

The incident, which had been dormant for nearly five months since then, was reignited when Hwang Ui-jo was found to have been investigated by the police as a suspect.

The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s cybercrime investigation team summoned Hwang Ui-jo on charges of illegal filming on the 17th, the day after the match against Singapore in the second Asian qualifying round for the World Cup. In the process, A was found to be Hwang Ui-jo’s brother-in-law, which shocked him. Hwang Ui-jo also reportedly submitted a petition for punishment for his brother-in-law, whether he did not know it.

Hwang Ui-jo’s brother-in-law was in charge of Hwang Ui-jo’s management and helped his brother-in-law.

However, the case in which Hwang Ui-jo was considered an early victim grew out of control as Hwang Ui-jo’s former lover, who appeared in the video on the 21st of last month, claimed that he had never agreed to film the video through his legal representative.

On the other hand, Hwang Ui-jo’s side reiterates that the video was filmed under the agreement.

The police first arrested A and arrested him, and sent the case to the prosecution on the 22nd of last month.

The prosecution conducted a supplementary investigation by investigating the people involved in the case and checking their mobile phones, accounts, and phone details to confirm that A distributed Hwang’s personal video, demanded cancellation of the complaint, and threatened him.

The prosecution said, “We do not disclose specific criminal charges to prevent secondary damage,” and explained, “We also requested the Seoul Digital Sexual Crime Safety Support Center to delete the distributed video to prevent secondary damage.”

In addition, he added, “We will make every effort to maintain the prosecution so that punishments corresponding to crimes can be made,” adding, “We will strictly respond to digital sex crimes and do our best to protect and support victims.”

Hwang Ui-jo was referred to the Korea Football Association’s special disciplinary committee due to controversy over illegal filming, and the disciplinary committee decided not to select Hwang Ui-jo as a national team member until he is not indicted for the incident after deliberation.

The person charged this time is brother-in-law A. Hwang Ui-jo’s indictment is expected to be concluded later.

Meanwhile, Hwang Ui-jo replaced Cho Kyu-sung in the second half of the 2026 North-China World Cup Asian qualifying match against China in Shenzhen, China, on the 21st of last month and played for about 20 minutes before heading to England, where his team belongs, unlike most overseas players.

He then became the main striker of the team by scoring a goal in two consecutive matches in the official match of Norwich City in the second division of England, but has been taking a rest since then due to a hamstring injury. Prosecutors say they will take measures to allow Hwang to enter Korea if further investigation is needed. 안전놀이터
