Do Kwon, the infamous founder of Terra (LUNA), is wanted by South Korean authorities, but that’s not the end of his problems. Apparently, the prosecutors have had enough of playing cat and mouse and have filed an official request to issue an Interpol Red Notice.
“Prosecutors on Monday have made a request to Interpol for their assistance to locate Kwon, whose whereabouts remain unknown, and to have him handed over to Korea,” explained the Prosecutor’s Office Spokesperson. Ultimately, this means Do Kwon would be in danger of arrest anywhere in the world.

Do Kwon Appears Out of Nowhere on Twitter
The infamous Terra (LUNA) leader shook the crypto world in May. The algorithmic stablecoin Terra (UST) crumbled, leaving investors without a piece of the supposedly decentralized pie. Then, Do Kwon hard-forked the network and rebranded the old LUNA as Terra Luna Classic (LUNC).
For a moment, the rebranded version made waves on Twitter, leaving crypto enthusiasts and influencers puzzled. For instance, social influencer David Gokhshtein called the situation “A game of musical chairs” and remarked that only “gamblers” could engage in trading Luna Terra Classic (LUNC).
The situation occurred around the time Do Kwon released his first interview since the Terra (LUNA) fiasco. On Saturday, after another month of silence, Do Kwon posted a thread on Twitter, claiming that he is “not on the run – or anything similar.” In addition, Terra (LUNA) had apparently held themselves “to an extremely high bar of integrity.”
However, the South Korean authorities are not convinced at all, accusing Do Kwon of escaping Singapore right after the arrest warrant.
