Lee Seo Won entered an uncontrollably belligerent state on April 8th. ‘A report came in for harassment. He was arrested for sexual harassment and special threats on location. The weapon was a knife. He was so drunk he couldn't even control himself. He also cursed a lot.

A lawyer then stated, ‘If he's found guilty after investigating, he'll be prosecuted and undergo a criminal trial. I'm carefully predicting that the results will be out within a month.’
