As per the Korea Joongang Daily, Yang arrived the Intellectual Crime Investigation Team headquarters on Thursday (Aug. 29) morning, saying that he would "submit to the questioning to the best of my ability." Yonhap later reported that Yang arrived home Friday morning after about 23 hours of questioning. "I answered police questions faithfully and gave a detailed explanation," Yang told reporters outside the police station.
