Police are searching the home of trot singer Kim Ho-joong (33) and his agency's office.

The Gangnam Police Station has been searching Kim Ho-joong's home and his agency's Thinknet Entertainment office since the 16th.

Kim Ho-joong is suspected of running away after causing an accident with a taxi in Apgujeong-dong at 11:40 p.m. on the 9th.

Later, the manager turned himself in to the police wearing the clothes Kim Ho-joong wore when he was driving, but a police investigation revealed that Kim Ho-joong was the driver. However, as the car's black box memory card disappeared, and the fact that Kim Ho-joong visited a nightclub just before the accident raised suspicions about changing the driver and drunk driving.

The police plan to secure memory cards that have disappeared through the raid.

Lee Kwang-deuk, CEO of the agency and a cousin of Kim Ho-joong, said that he told Kim to change the driver, and that neither hit-and-run nor drunk driving was true.

"After the accident, the manager called me to find out about the accident, and at that time, I already knew that Kim Ho-joong had moved the car without handling the accident due to a serious panic after the accident," he said. "I was so afraid that it would be too controversial if it was known that Kim Ho-joong was involved in such an accident."

"The other manager who arrived at the scene first removed the memory card first by his own judgment, and I asked the manager who reportedly turned himself in to take Kim Ho-joong's clothes and change them and take care of his work instead," he said. "All of this happened when I tried to overprotect Kim Ho-joong as a brother and as his CEO."
