South Korean comedian Maeng Seung Ji (맹승지) took to her Instagram recently to share a conversation she had with a “sponsor broker” online. As revealed by the celeb, someone had offered her a hefty amount of cash to become his companion.
The sender revealed to her that he has a client who wanted to pay her KRW 500 million (~RM1.7 mil) to go on dates with him. To top if off, he even offered to arrange a “meeting” between them. Seemingly undaunted, Maeung immediately took matters into her own hands and immediately put the person on blast.
The broker told Maeng, “I received a request (from his client), so I am reaching out to you here. A twenty-something man from a wealthy Chinese-Singapore family living in Korea has chosen you, so I decided to contact you. He says he can give you about 5 million won for going on a date with him. He can pay in either cash or cheque. Are you interested in accepting this offer?”
Surprisingly, the Korean celeb refused to remain silent after receiving the alarming text on her Instagram. She retaliated by posting a screenshot of the message on her IG Story. “He must be delusional because of the hot weather. You should donate that 500 million KRW to somewhere that needs help,” the 36-year-old remarked in her post.
As if that wasn’t enough, Maeng also revealed that she received other direct messages saying, “I’m sending this message to you because you’re my ideal type. I am carefully asking if it’s possible to go on a date with you two to four times a month, one to two hours at a time. Every time we meet, I’ll take good care of you.”
The person added by saying, “I’m working as a brokerage agent to introduce women and people with financial resources such as individuals who are CEO’s of large corporations and foreign investors as sponsors, so I am sending a DM to you to offer you to meet with them.”
How would you react if you were in Maeng’s place?
