The Seoul Central District Court on Wednesday sentenced a man to eight months in prison, suspended for two years for blackmailing figure skater Kim Yu-na.
The man must regularly report to a nearby probation office and will be placed under regular supervision.
He was convicted of sending 47 threatening e-mails to Kim, apparently to prevent her from appearing in a beer commercial.
The court suspended the sentence because it was the man's first offense and he promised not to repeat it.
The day laborer was indicted in January this year.
