A South Korean actress, Lee Yul-em, faces a jail term of five years after being found to hunt and capture three giant threatened and protected shellfish in Thailand.

The 23-year-old actress was found to have made the mistake openly during the filming process at Hat Chao Mai National Park for a popular program.

Through the recording on June 30, she was seen hunting shellfish and capturing the animals on the seafront which was also an offense under Thai government law.

Hunting and capturing a protected endangered animal is an offense in Thailand and subject to severe penalties.

Meanwhile, in the preview of the upcoming episode, people can see clearly how other actors enjoy cooked cheese.

Thai media in a report on July 4 said the production and actors involved in the filming had committed an offense under the laws of the country that arrested and hunted protected beings whether using bots or fishing.

Earlier, the director-general of the national park, Narong Kongaid, had already made two reports on Yul-em for violating National Parks regulations and the Thai Wildlife Protection Act.

According to Narong, the shellfish hunting offense allowed the actor to be jailed for five years.
