The Korea Times published an article titled "S. Korean gets jail term for threatening to kill US envoy to Seoul" on Nov. 11, 2016.

It said a South Korean man was sentenced to an 18-month prison term for posting letters on the White House website, threatening to kill the top U.S. envoy to Seoul and rape the second daughter of U.S. President Barack Obama.

However, the Supreme Court upheld a lower court's not guilty verdict for him on March 12, 2020. He said he never accessed the White House website, nor did he post any threatening messages. He has welcomed the decision of the Supreme Court, which cleared his name.
