Jeon Ji-hyeon Cell Phone Rigger Gets Jail


The person accused of cloning actress Jeon Ji-hyeon’s cell phone has been sentenced to one year in prison. The man, identified as Kim, is believed to have been ordered by the actress’s management firm to monitor Jeon’s phone records and text messages via the replica phone in 2007.

The phone had been altered to allow it to receive any communications the actress received on her actual phone. News of the celebrity spy case came out in January.

The Seoul Central District Court says Kim was paid close to W40 million (US$1=W1,335) by several other clients to invade the privacy of 12 people.
