Thanks to MBC’s “True Story of Exploration”, fans have been getting in depth insights into Goo Hoin (구호인)’s lawsuit against their mother over Goo Hara (구하라)’s wealth.
It’s been an ugly battle and it’s far from over. As many of you may know, their absent mom has been determine to claim half of Goo Hara’s inheritance – despite abandoning the sibling duo when they were young.
During this week’s episode 7 of “True Story of Exploration”, the producers caught up Goo Hoin to gather some updates regarding his ongoing lawsuit with his biological mom. “I received a reply from her recently. She keeps saying that she’s going to take half the inheritance, but if we win the lawsuit or she gives up, I would like to use that money to help single moms and dads, as well as those who aspire to become celebrities,” he said.
The late pop star’s brother added, “Just because someone gave birth to you doesn’t mean they’re a parent. A person who abandoned us and even gave up her parental rights is trying to take away assets earned through Hara’s hard work, and this means that the laws are unjust. Our biological mother who abandoned us when we were children and gave up her parental rights is parading the law, showing up after 20 years. She said that the law is like that so we should split the assets 50/50.”
Goo Hara’s father – who has already transferred his 50% inheritance to Goo Hoin – stated: “She gave up her parental rights and lived her life without caring, and she’s now showing up to suck her children’s blood. What else can it be?”
In an emotional message to his sister, Goo Hoin said, “Hara. I’m really sorry that I wasn’t able to help you a lot, and I’m going to work hard and live enough for your share too. I really miss you, and I love you a lot.”
