More than a week has passed since Jiang Jinfu’s domestic violence case against his girlfriend came to light. Jiang Jinfu wrote a public apology on social media, but his whereabouts remained unknown.
On November 27, Haruka Nakaura appeared on a Japanese program to reveal the details of the abuse and the extent of her injuries. Various rumors have been cropping up including one claiming that Jiang Jinfu has secretly returned to China.
On November 28, Jiang Jinfu Studio released a statement to explain that the actor has reached out to Japanese police to cooperate with their investigation. The studio also asked for everyone to stop spreading rumors.
The same day, Japanese news outlets began reporting about Jiang Jinfu’s surrender. He has been arrested as a suspect of a DV case committed on October 12 that resulted in serious injuries to his girlfriend who had undergone 4 weeks of treatment. The actor is seen being escorted in handcuffs. Japanese police have indicated that they will be conducting a full investigation.
Jiang Jinfu’s breakout role was his first starring role in the 2012 drama Xuan Yuan Sword: Scar of Sky headlined by Hu Ge.
Hu Ge took to weibo to talk about his former co-star. He writes, “Some things happened today and it led me to think about the person from seven years ago. During that hot summer, I saw a sunny young man. His eyes, his smile, his childish questions that elicit laughter, these are still in my memories until now. I once felt that I saw the person that I once was. Hearing today’s news, I am very said. Even if some things have happened these few years, he is always that bright young man in my heart. Okay, today I drank too much. I want to say, life’s journey is very long. A wrong is a wrong, but don’t topple over. We still need to restore the truth. I still remember the first time I saw him cry, it was because he couldn’t do an action scene well. He is like this, a kid that can’t grow up. I am not trying to defend him, I am just very sad.”
