So the lawsuit drama continues.
JYJ’s Park Yoochun (박유천), who is currently serving his military service, was accused of sexually assaulting an employee of an exclusive adult entertainment bar, known as Ms. Lee on Friday (10th June). After many rumours and false reports, the police has confirmed that the victim withdrew her claims against the star on Wednesday (15th June).
Despite the dropping of the charges, the Seoul Gangnam Police Station stated that they have decided to continue with their investigation of the case.
Yesterday, a representative of the police station stated, “The suit has been withdrawn, but the investigation will still continue. It’s so we can determine whether or not the suspicions against Yoochun are true. It’s most likely that Yoochun and the accuser (Ms. Lee) will be summoned if necessary”.
They added that the law does not require the victim to press charges against the suspect in order to investigate a case.
It was reported that Ms. Lee dropped the sexual assault charges because apparently, there was no force during the sexual interaction. “I filed the claim because I felt that he and his group saw me as an easy person,” the 24-year-old woman told the police.
Following this, the singer’s label, C-JeS Entertainment, announced that Yoochun will comply with any further investigations the police may request in order to prove his innocence.
Fans have stepped up to support their favourite Oppa with various social media campaigns. Korean fans have created the hashtag campaigns #Believe6002 and #YoochunProtectionSquad on Instagram and Twitter while international fans used #WeBelieveInYoochun to show their love for the star.
Meanwhile, Yoochun has returned to his post as a public service personnel for the Gangnam-gu Ward Office Station.
We hope that the case will have a clear conclusion soon. Till then, stay strong you guys!
