CEO of The Eastlight's agency gets indicted for child abuse
On January 8, Media Line Entertainment’s CEO Kim Chang Hwan was indicted without detention for charges of child abuse and aiding in abuse in accordance to the Child Welfare Act. Recently, producer Moon Young Il was indicted with detention for charges of abuse against former The East Light members Lee Seok Cheol and Lee Seung Hyun.
The controversy surrounding the abuse of the siblings Lee Seok Cheol and Lee Seung Hyun began in October last year. At the time, Lee Seok Cheol reported that he had been assaulted multiple times by producer Moon Young Il and that CEO Kim Chang Hwan had allowed these actions to happen.
However, Kim Chang Hwan denied these allegations. He held a press conference on December 26 with former The East Light members Lee Eun Sung and Jung Sa Gang in which he refuted the allegations of abuse. Following the press conference, Lee Seok Cheol and Lee Sung Hyun refuted the denials during their visit to the Prosecutor’s Office.
The court will make a judgement regarding the sharply divided parties.
