Forensics report finds no traces of drugs in trainee ‘A’ for Park Si Hoo’s sexual assault case

On the 25th, media outlet ‘Sunday Seoul‘ reported an exclusive interview with ‘B’, a person said to be the best friend to trainee ‘A’ and was present on the night of Park Si Hoo sexual assault scandal.

In the interview, ‘B’ reported that Park Si Hoo and his hoobae had not had a sip of any of the alcohol, and had only told ‘A’ to drink. ‘A’ reportedly drank only one bottle of soju, and ‘B’ asserted that there was no way ‘A’ could get drunk from one bottle, and that there must be drugs involved because ‘A’ had felt different than usual. ‘B’ also reported that ‘A’ had sent a text message to her parents saying that she’d go home soon, but had lost consciousness in the car.

Also, ‘B’ reported that Park Si Hoo already had a condom on when ‘A’ opened her eyes in the morning, and his hoobae touched her while she was naked. However, these statements seem to be a little different from the previous reports by ‘A’, who claimed she had already been sexually assaulted when she woke up. ‘B’ also mentioned in the interview that Park Si Hoo had worn a mask from when he was coming out from the apartment, so he had been planning the assault from the beginning.

However, Park Si Hoo’s side slammed the interview as being completely fabricated from ‘A’. His new law firm said, “As you already know, Park Si Hoo’s alcohol tolerance is very low. But on the day of the incident, Park Si Hoo drank about 10 shots of soju over the course of 3 hours. Therefore, the reports that he didn’t drink anything are false.” They also confirmed that Park Si Hoo always wears a mask coming in and out from the apartment so he wouldn’t be recognized, and that this fact could be checked through the daily footage of CCTV.

Not only so, but the new law firm added, “‘A’ said that she had lost consciousness for about 13 hours when she went into Park Si Hoo’s house and came back out during her investigation, but she seems to remember all the very minute details about Park Si Hoo that would be used against him that people wouldn’t normally remember, so her account is not very believable. Her articles use terms such as that she felt fuzzy, insinuating as if the National Forensic Service’s results had already come out that drugs had been used against her, so we very suspicious about her comments.”

They added on, “‘A’ went home perfectly fine at around 2PM after the incident, and you can confirm this through CCTV footage. Not only so, but she texted Park Si Hoo’s hoobae multiple times afterwards.”

However, although there has been no official decisions made, it seems that the favor could be tipped for Park Si Hoo now, as test results from the National Forensics Service showed that no traces of any drugs were found in ‘A’. Because ‘A’ had asserted that there was no way she could have gotten so drunk with just one bottle of soju, the investigators had taken samples of her hair, urine, and blood to be sent to the National Forensics Service to check for traces of any date-rape type drugs. All of her tests came out to be negative.

There is still a possibility that the drugs had been flushed out of her system by the time the tests were conducted. Forensic experts said, “If it had been less than 24 hours since the incident, the drugs will have most likely still remained in her system. However, after 24 hours, it is highly possible that the drugs would have dissociated in her system or have been flushed out.”

that's not true..

Don't get sucked in. these girls stan so hard for their oppa. It's like they don't get that cops and like everyone pull out all the stops to prove all women are lying and are totes willing to relive an awful situation all while having their entire life put up under a microscope to discredit them as money grubbing whores

And these stans do it with such fervor until that situation happens to them...and there's no one to help them
muzegrey 26th-Feb-2013 01:55 am (UTC)
It's true that it is possible that the drugs were flushed out, but it's really damning for her case. Especially since she got the test done so soon and it came up negative.

Fact is, it's really hard to pass out in 10 minutes after you've been drinking 4 shots over a period of 3 hours and you ate dinner and you left fine.

They have to prove she was drugged another way or it will seem like she is not being honest.
jlie_ly 26th-Feb-2013 01:33 am (UTC)
so one can't be raped without being drugged? and also, after she woke up, they still groped her, it's still assault.
stephantasm 26th-Feb-2013 03:14 am (UTC)
they didn't find drugs in her system bc she didn't do the test within 24 hours of the drugs being administered. they said after 24 hours they could be flushed out of her system

and in cases like these you can't go beyond testimonials unless there's DNA evidence available and in many cases of rape, there isn't so????
aaalove 26th-Feb-2013 01:33 pm (UTC)
The reports are so mixed I'm with you! It's so hard to see what side is truthful....I get what you mean!!
dbskthskjyj 25th-Feb-2013 09:45 pm (UTC)
I hate this kind of things where you never know what's true and what's not, and you either defend a guilty person or hate an innocent one, or both...

LMAO awesome media play, new Park Shi Hoo's law firm.
I just read a whole freaking text, stating nonsensical logic, that says that "A" contradicts herself... but she doesn't at all.

10 useless blocks of text in order to confuse ppl over nothing.
Good media play, no wonder he's changed his lawyer.

IKR! round of applause for the new lawyer.
istalkalert 25th-Feb-2013 10:05 pm (UTC)
hold up, when did she take the drug test though?
ren_squared 25th-Feb-2013 10:30 pm (UTC)
depending on when it was reported, it sounded like it happened after the investigation began (not immediately) so it was prob more than 24hrs
istalkalert 26th-Feb-2013 01:38 am (UTC)
i feel like there is more of a possibility that the drugs got flushed out her system.
ren_squared 26th-Feb-2013 11:12 am (UTC)
yeah since she filed the report sometime the next day and one of the reports I read made it sound like she went in for initial questioning and evidence collection and came back later time/next day after requesting blood work it's most likely. that's the bad thing about these kinds of drugs and getting proof of exposure. they took hair samples but I have no idea if that makes any difference for these drugs but going to assume it won't show up.
johnnyquest89 25th-Feb-2013 10:43 pm (UTC)
probably when she reported it... blood work n fluid checks are almost always done as soon as it is so as not to lose evidence. But I'm going by the US's Rape kit n stuff.
phonominal 26th-Feb-2013 12:10 am (UTC)
According this old omona post it sounded like she had to request one separately after filing charges
johnnyquest89 26th-Feb-2013 03:44 am (UTC)
mmk, like i said was going by the US. Wonder how it's handled over there. I mean is there a need for a request or was she concerned and made sure to bring it up.
zeli17 25th-Feb-2013 10:38 pm (UTC)
If she didn't eat before hand, 1 bottle can definitely do someone in (though soju is pretty light...)

That said, they did take advantage of a blacked out girl.

But who sleeps with a condom ON?
muzegrey 26th-Feb-2013 01:49 am (UTC)
A bottle of soju is 7 shots. She would have only had 4 shots over a 3 hour period. She might have been tipsy at the bar, but I find it very hard to believe that she would have become unconscious from that amount, let alone in a 10 minute period after being fine.

It was drugs or nothing at all.
zeli17 26th-Feb-2013 03:19 am (UTC)
I see nowhere in this post or the past several on this topic that she had '4 shots over a 3 hour period'. It says she had one bottle of soju, the full 7 shots. The time period was also not released for her. He claims he had 10 shots in '3 hours' but how much of that time she spent unconscious is not mentioned. How long she had to consume the alcohol was not included.

If you've never had soju before, it's a creeper alcohol. In saying that I mean it will hit you all at once, and you don't feel it as strongly because it's lighter than vodka. A full bottle of soju is equivalent to 3~4 shots of a standard vodka or 3~4 glasses of wine using the unit chart.

If she was having it forced upon her rapidly, which is what the source implies, it's certainly enough to get someone with low tolerance very drunk very quickly. Honestly, I have low tolerance, and 1 bottle is enough to make me black out. :S

muzegrey 26th-Feb-2013 10:41 am (UTC)
They ordered 2 bottles of soju over dinner which was 3 hours. If he had 10 shots, only 4 shots were left.

They have CCTV of her leaving just fine, it is only when she arrives at his home 10 minutes later that she looks drunk.

Please, I have had soju more times that I can count and there is nothing about it that will make someone unconscious in that situation especially if she was completely fine when leaving.
stephantasm 25th-Feb-2013 10:46 pm (UTC)
do all kinds of drugs like that show up in your system?
flumes 25th-Feb-2013 11:38 pm (UTC)
how long was it after? this is weird. not as in i don't believe her because i absolutely do just in general.
cairistiona 25th-Feb-2013 11:55 pm (UTC)
This whole thing reads like victim-blaming. Park Si Hoo's spokespeople are still gross. Glad the forensic experts said it could easily have been flushed out. They should have done the tests the moment she reported it.
iznanassi 26th-Feb-2013 12:06 am (UTC)
Ugh...this 'B' person probably just wanted justice for her friend but her testimony seems to have made everything worse, sucks :/
phonominal 26th-Feb-2013 12:15 am (UTC)
I'm still confused how 'B' even knew any details about what happened at PSH's place, but at the same time if she heard it from 'A' their stories still don't match up. They'd be the same if 'B' was just retelling what 'A' told her right?
muzegrey 26th-Feb-2013 01:45 am (UTC)
Also, the fact that A would just gossip about it like that is weird. Personally, after my experience the last thing I wanted to do was recount it in detail to my friends.
muzegrey 26th-Feb-2013 10:47 am (UTC)
True, but it just seems weird that she was so detailed about it.
asianmusiclove 26th-Feb-2013 12:52 am (UTC)
and this is why its good to not say anything positive or negative about anyone involved until all of the info is laid out.
muzegrey 26th-Feb-2013 01:42 am (UTC)
No drugs in her system if she got the kit straight away is pretty damaging to her case especially since alcohol doesn't make you pass out in 10 minutes and actually wears off. If he drank 10 shots, that means he drank more than a whole bottle. Which leaves like a little over half for the girl. And over a 3 hour time period of drinking, there is no chance for suddenly passing out in 10 minutes if you were fine just before.

They would have had to use an unknown drug.

Also, the story about PSH having a condom on seemed kind of fishy to me. Usually guys don't sit around wearing one waiting for sex.

Of course this changes things a lot, but there could still be many twists and turns.

People want to judge and they have judged, but this will be proven in a court and not in whatever opinion people have about him or the girl.
mingobus 26th-Feb-2013 01:47 am (UTC)
One thing that strikes my curiosity is the fact that he has low tolerance to alcohol but was able to drink 10 shots within 3 hours. I'm not too experienced with alcohol, but can somebody with low tolerance for alcohol drink that much within a night?
muzegrey 26th-Feb-2013 02:03 am (UTC)
A lot of Korean men can drink 2 bottles or more alone themselves. Drinking 1.5 is a low amount typically. I know a lot who can drink 4 at minimum.

Edited at 2013-02-26 02:05 am (UTC)
modestgoddess79 26th-Feb-2013 02:42 am (UTC)
that is a scary amount of alcohol
kris_kt 26th-Feb-2013 03:32 am (UTC)
and the fact that soju or korean drinks are so cheap doesn't help either (price range for popular drinks around $1.50 ~ $2/per bottle).
stephantasm 26th-Feb-2013 03:06 am (UTC)
oh @ the detectives in this post
22by7 26th-Feb-2013 03:36 am (UTC)
oh @ the defenders of objectivity in this post bc THE TEST DIDN'T PROVE IT SHE MUST BE LYYYYYINGGGG
boncoup 26th-Feb-2013 04:24 am (UTC)
I honestly wasn't expecting the test to turn up anything. Depending on what was allegedly use, the drug could be undetectable in 12 hours or less.
supplanter 26th-Feb-2013 04:32 am (UTC)
I have no idea what's true or not since I haven't read any of the original articles (and it doesn't hurt anyone for me to remain skeptical, frankly, so I'm not going to sweat it), but... is it at all weird that B is talking to the media as much as B supposedly is in advance of a trial? Did the police confirm that the B Sunday Seoul was talking to is actually who they say she is? Did such an article actually come out?
raviolikenshin 26th-Feb-2013 05:18 am (UTC)
well his new lawyers did say they were going on the offensive
whiteballad 26th-Feb-2013 05:58 am (UTC)
This case is so mindfuck.
I kind of know why they decided to meet in the first place...

I am kind of leaning toward PSH side... but in the same time, a lot tell me that the story is so mess up and not clear that I kind of lean toward the girl too..
I don't know. Everything is so shady ==
sandritablue 26th-Feb-2013 11:19 am (UTC)
Wow this lawyer, mad claps...he's trying to victimized PSH.
monster_mutt 27th-Feb-2013 04:04 am (UTC)
Ugh to the whole thing.
