Additionally, 9ato Entertainement also shaed that such incident has happened a few more time with one case even involving falsification of private documents.
"Due to these series of cases, a civil trial was carried out, and the court drew a clear line that Han So Hee had nothing to do with these cases. The Ulsan District Court's final ruling on April 8, 2021 stated, "Money was borrowed using an account under Han So Hee's name, but it is insufficient to acknowledge that Han So Hee is jointly responsible for the debt due to this, so there is no evidence to acknowledge [her involvement]," 9ato Entertainment explained.

The agency went on to state that Han So Hee has no plans of taking responsibility for the debt that her mother acquired.
"This is to block from the source the actions of [Ms. Shin] using her daughter's name to borrow money and abusing the fact that that her daughter is a famous celebrity to borrow money," 9ato Entertainment said.
