Jaejoong talks about sexual harassment by sasaengs



On January 6th, Jaejoong appeared in the Japanese TV show “行列のできる法律相談所”. He revealed troubles caused by his fans. That day, the co-star Masaki Sugano, talked about his real experience of being hugged by three “smooth skinned” middle-aged female fans. “If an ojisan (older man) hugs a young girl, it is absolutely sexual harassment…” He revealed that he had doubts about it.

About such hugging by fans, lawyer Harumo Kitamura stated that there is no problem as long as the entertainer accepts it, but if the person being touched feels “uncomfortable”, and the other part is conscious about it, then it can be considered sexual/violation assault. He said that, recently, excessive acts by fans toward the artists are considered problematic.

When Jaejoong was asked about similar experiences, he made the shocking confession “There were many fans who broke into my bedroom“. “In the middle of the night, while I was sleeping, on top of me…“. With the movements of the body, she/he looked down from the top to his sleeping face. While everybody in the studio was screaming, he finished “this happened many times“. I was stunned by this, too.

This is sexual assault, maybe even rape. As a victim I’m sure he is uncomfortable discussing it so we will never know how far it went but it sounds like it would cause nightmares. I hope he has a good therapist to deal with the trauma.

This sort of thing would absolutely traumatize me tbh. Imagine everytime you think you feel something on you as you fall asleep, your automatic response is to freak the fuck out because this happened to you. It's horrible.

Definitely, I have pets so I'm used to them walking across me or my bed but if something like that happened to me I'd be panicking thinking I was being molested in my sleep.
