The Last Escape
4 months later, on August 22, 2016, Mi Ran came out of the basement, but was not “acquitted”, nor successfully escaped, but was kicked out of the house by her two children.
She called her younger sister, Lee Mi Kyeong, to inform her that her two children had called a private ambulance to take their mother to the hospital. Knowing the situation of her sister’s abuse, Mi Kyeong reported to the police to drag them to the Bang’s house. But when the police arrived, Mi Ran’s two children suddenly changed their voices saying that they did not want to take their mother anywhere, but it was all a misunderstanding.
After the police left, the two children violently dragged their mother out of the house. The maid said the lady was screaming and crying in despair as her two children dragged her on the ground. They called an ambulance again and “ejected” her mother to her grandmother’s house.
After the ambulance took Mi Ran to her mother’s house, a truck carrying all of her belongings also arrived. Mi Ran’s mother was extremely shocked when she saw her daughter after many months and took pictures of her daughter’s abused body as evidence. Pyo Chang Won – the lawyer representing the family said: “When I look at the pictures, I can see the fingerprints all over my shoulder. There are too many rope marks all over my body and too many bleeding wounds. All are evidence of domestic abuse. serious family”.
Traces of Mi Ran’s abuse
However, when going to court, the two children still insisted that all injuries on Lee Mi Ran’s body were caused by medical staff. They also just want to bring their mother to their grandmother’s house for the purpose of letting her clear her mind and treat depression.
Less than 10 days after returning to her mother’s house, the tycoon’s wife drove herself to the Han River to end her life.
According to the family and documents on the show PD Notebook exposed, Lady Lee Mi Ran was abused by her husband and children during the last few years of her life. In November 2015, one of her daughters even stabbed her mother in the stomach with a knife three times because of an argument about money.

After Lee Mi Ran’s case was turned over, a big wave of controversy broke out in Korea. There are sources that believe that Bang Yong Hoon is the “unsub” who abuses his wife the worst and turns her life into hell. However, this CEO tried to push the crime to the two children so that they could take the blame and then tried to run the sentence, bringing the punishment to the lowest possible level. After all, this case was never turned over and people could only shudder at the terrifying dark corners of the tycoon.
