Yonghwa cleared of all charges in preferential admission case
FNC Entertainment made an official statement clarifying that Jung Yong Hwa had already been cleared of all charges earlier this summer.
The agency wrote, “Hello, this is FNC Entertainment. We are relaying news about our artist Jung Yong Hwa’s admission to his graduate school’s doctoral program.
“At the beginning of this year, Jung Yong Hwa diligently cooperated with prosecutorial investigations. The result [of those investigations] was that the prosecutor ultimately determined that Jung Yong Hwa was not guilty of obstruction of business in regards to his school admissions, and in July, the prosecutor decided not to indict him.
“Through the judgment of the law, Jung Yong Hwa, who was found not guilty, was able to cast off the various misunderstandings and suspicions that had surrounded his doctoral program admissions process, and it has been acknowledged [by the law] that he did not have any intention of receiving preferential admission.”
