Studio head in Yang Ye Won case commits suicide

Previous posts:



News reports have been released that the owner of the studio related to YouTuber Yang Ye Won’s sexual harassment scandal and investigated by police has jumped into the river.

On July 9 at around 9 a.m. KST, a pedestrian called in to the Namyangju Police station to report that “a person got out of their car and jumped [in the river].”

According to the police investigations, the car belonged to the owner of the studio related to the Yang Ye Won scandal. Police also found a suicide note written by the studio owner. In the suicide note, the studio owner felt the situation was unfair.

The police assumed that because two more victims submitted complaints on July 5 in the middle of this situation where the owner was going through an investigation already, the studio owner made the drastic choice due to feeling some psychological burdens.

The police were planning on calling the studio owner for the 6th round of investigations at 10 a.m. KST this day. A source from the police regretfully said, “We called the owner in for the 5th round of investigations on July 6. We did not exchange harsh words nor was the atmosphere oppressive.”

The studio owner’s suicide note included his opinions that the reports regarding the scandal were biased and that the models were lying.

According to the Gyeonggi Disaster and Safety Headquarters, there are currently 46 firefighters and 18 police, along with 28 helicopters and other transportation systems, searching for the studio owner around the Misa Bridge river area, but he is yet to be found.

According to the police, including the studio owner, there are seven suspects complicit in the Yang Ye Won scandal and eight victims who have filed complaints.

Police arrested one suspect on July 2 for being the first to leak Yang Ye Won’s photos.

A source from the police revealed that “after proceeding with more investigations for one of the suspects, we will send the suspects of the case to the public prosecutor’s office.”

Yang Ye Won previously said her photos had been leaked and that she had been sexually assaulted on her YouTube channel in May 17. She submitted complaints against those at the studio.

Yang Ye Won’s case was posted on the message board for national petitions, supported by Suzy. However, the studio owner released the messages exchanged by him and Yang Ye Won and insisted that the photo shoot was a mutual deal, and filed a counterclaim against her on the basis of false accusations and defamation.

what a waste of police services. it's not like SK believes women, on a societal or legal level, sooooooooo guess he's admitting his own guilt here.

anyway...that's 8 people being considered for charges (now minus one) there's at least another 10+ men out there who took part in these sessions and a multitude of others who disseminated the photographs. chop chop SK police get on it. less river searching more arresting creeps.

The startling reluctance on their end to make sure these things are thoroughly investigated and any of these guys get proper punishment is just yet another reason to believe a whole bunch of these creeps actually ARE the police

oh no doubt the police are probably perverts too

And yet they're always used as the ultimate excuse. "Well if the police didn't do anything then she must be lying". So convenient for men that their fellow creeps are calling the shots in almost every aspect of life.

Bye. What a waste of government resources to go looking for this piece of shit.

It's sad tho because now ppl are going to give YYW, Suzy, and Seolhyun shit bc someone died. I feel bad for them.

Scum til the end I see. This man really is trying to use his SUICIDE not only to avoid paying for his consequences but also to manipulate and sway public opinion in his favor because poor him he killed himself because of all of the lying models he molested. Wow just wow.

Oh ok. Now would they please focus on the rest of the creeps.

Welp.
I should care but I want to focus on the women being exploited instead so...sad I guess but whatever.

Wow, even sex criminals are capable of setting a good example.
