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.

He's been talking about this since he was still under SM. I don't know, I guess because he never took legal action I thought it had stopped? Like with the relationship with big 3 companies and saesangs they'd have told him not to but the "freedom" to do so would be available under C-JeS. I wonder if he hasn't done anything simply because he doesn't see the point or if he's advised not to.

I don't know if this will change anything but I hope it does.
