Myung-Whun Chung

The Korean press today reports that Police has cleared conductor Myung-Whun Chung of suspicions he misused Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra’s accounts for personal expenses. In the follow-up of the conductor’s dispute with the former CEO, Mrs. Park, Chung was accused of embezzlement. After analyzing Chung’s travel records and receipts of tickets acquired between 2005 and 2015, the police concluded that there was no misconduct. Police said they will send the case to the prosecution Friday, recommending a non-indictment.

In a statement, Chung said: « I am happy that after a thorough investigation all the accusations against myself and the SPO have proven to be groundless. It is a pity that so much damage has been done to myself and the SPO over the last year and a half. »
