I've re-submitted the post and double-checked with shanny_w, so it should be ok, as long as I specify that it's rumored. Those are their voices, though I'm aware non-fans aren't familiar with them. I hope it's ok! :)

"Park has yet to present evidence showing that the sex was consensual", a police spokesman said

More information about the Kakaotalk messages brought up by Park Shi Hoo's law firm and not by the police.


Actor Park Si-hoo arrives at the Nokbeon Police Station in western Seoul for questioning on Friday.

Police plan to summon actor Park Si-hoo for further questioning on charges that he raped a 22-year-old aspiring actress. "We did not set a specific time to summon him and the next round of questioning may take place privately as he wishes", a police spokesman said.

Park finally appeared for questioning on Friday accompanied by his attorney and was grilled for about nine hours. He had repeatedly failed to obey a summons in the previous two weeks.

So. We had all this media coverage about the police finding compromising Kakaotalk messages, completely ignoring the messages that confirm the lawsuit? And all that given by Park Shi Hoo's law firm? That the validity wasn't even confirmed by the police? I see, I see. Anyone has another article talking about it?

Trainee ‘A’ reveals full KakaoTalk message history with Park Si Hoo’s hoobae.


With Park Si Hoo‘s side now taking the offense by firing back with lawsuits of their own, trainee ‘A’ and her legal team have revealed the full KakaoTalk message history between ‘A’, and Park Si Hoo’shoobae, Mr, Kim (‘K’).

Feeling that only certain parts of the KakaoTalk history between her and Mr. Kim, the one who introduced her to Park Si Hoo, were unfairly revealed last week, ‘A’s legal team has now released more of the conversation that took place the day after the night of the alleged sexual assault.

The media's releasing all of thi is insane. Media play needs to stop. I don't know why A's law firm felt the need to reveal it, perhap's because the police investigation is heavily influenced by Shi Hoo's media play?  Even if they said they would'nt use it as proof.

Educational Programs at Forefront of Sex Crime Prevention

(Yonhap News)

In the wake of a series of high-profile sexual assaults against women and children last year, the government plans to expand education programs to prevent crimes and ensure better care of victims.

The Ministry of Gender Equality and Family plans to discuss the plan with experts from various fields on Feb. 22, the government-designated day for eradicating sexual violence against children.

Amid public outrage about sex crimes, the government and the parliament took measures last year to increase state support for victims and toughen punishment against offenders.

In addition, the government will provide extensive preventative education for children and adults designed to instruct people how to identify abuse, how to react and what to do afterward. The programs also would deter potential offenders by teaching people what acts constitute sexual crimes.

Thought it may be healthy for us to read about the affirmative, proactive steps SK gov't is attempting to make to prevent sex crimes...also, really surprised about the abolishment of the statute of limitations. really surprised.

Busker Busker signs with new label

Busker Busker has finally found a label to call home!

After the trio won ‘Superstar K3‘ in 2011, the group had an incredibly successful year in 2012, topping the charts with “Cherry Blossom Ending” and sweeping many rookie awards. Even through all that, Busker Busker had never really had a label to call home.

But last month, the group finally signed with a new label called ‘Chung Chun Music‘, meaning they’ll finally be having more promotions! Chung Chun Music said, “We recently signed Busker Busker and we’re now one family. We’re going to take in input from the members and also have solo activities. We respect Busker Busker’s passion and we’re going to support them so they can continue to create wonderful music.

The group has been suffering from a lot of rumors because of their lengthy hiatus, but it shouldn’t be too long before they release a new album. The presence of a label will apparently have almost no effect on the trio – Jang Bum Joon will still be focusing on making music while Brad and Kim Hyung Tae will also be focusing on their music. The management will only come in when they ask for their support. Chung Chun Music said, “The members do their music promotions freely, so we are going to only manage them when they want us too.”

Hopefully, the trio will comeback soon with amazing music!
