Earlier this week, actor and singer Park Yoochun was accused of raping a woman in a bathroom of an adult entertainment establishment. Soon after, netizens became disgusted over the fact that Yoochun went to an adult entertainment establishment in the first place, especially during his military service.
After this original accusation came to light, a long-time fan of Yoochun allegedly revealed his “secrets,” however they remain unconfirmed. As a result of the accusation of rape, netizens began to bring back his past actions as well.
The original sexual assault charges against Park Yoochun were dropped shortly after the investigation into the charges began. However, Yoochun was still accused of avoiding the press following the controversy.
While the investigation was still underway, another alleged victim emerged, claiming to have been raped by him.
As rumors and conjectures began spreading like wildfire, C-JeS Entertainment played a strong hand with their recent official statement, by stating that Yoochun will leave the industry and retire if the charges against him are proven true.
Below is a direct translation of the recent official statement by C-JeS Entertainment:
Hello this is C-JeS Entertainment.
We are sorry to worry a lot of people by being involved in such incidents continuously.
The second lawsuit against Park Yoochun which was just reported is false and we plan to make them take responsibility for defaming our artist and more.
Police investigation is well underway regarding the first incident and we believe that he will soon be proven innocent.
We are very shaken that while questioning hasn’t even begun for the first incident yet, another false lawsuit was filed against him and that we found out through press.
Park Yoochun is currently under immense mental stress. Please refrain from reports based on false facts and wait for results from the police investigators.
If any charges are proven and he is proven guilty of any crime, he will forever retire from the entertainment industry.
