The doctor who caused the death of the late singer Shin Hae-chul in a medical accident has been sentenced to prison for another medical malpractice case.
Yesterday (26th), the Seoul Central District Court sentenced Kang Mo, who was charged with negligent manslaughter under the Ministry of Justice, to one year in prison.
In 2014, Kang was put on trial for causing the death of a male patient in his 60s due to work negligence in tearing a blood vessel during surgery to remove a blood clot.
This is the third time Kang has been sentenced to prison for medical malpractice.
He was sentenced to one year in prison by the Supreme Court in 2018 for causing Shin Hae-cheol's gastric band surgery and causing him to die 10 days later.
In 2013, he was charged with leaving a scar after performing liposuction on a woman in her 30s and in 2015 for causing the death of an Australian who underwent gastric resection surgery as a result of the aftermath.
