Famous Idol Group Member Sued For Alleged Sexual Assault

On the March 29 broadcast of SBS’s “8 O’Clock News,” it was revealed that a famous idol group member was sued for sexual assault.

During the show, SBS reported that on March 25, an official complaint was filed to the police stating that member A of a famous idol group had sexually assaulted a victim in May of 2010.

The female victim, B, met A at her former workplace, a bar, and kept in contact with him. She stated that A had sexually assaulted her in her home in Ilsan after he came home drunk. She revealed, “He said he would help me fall asleep. So I just lay down like that, but in an instant…” Although she rejected his advances twice, she could not stop him.

B continued, “He said it would be okay. He then grabbed my arm. I felt so humiliated. He had absolutely no respect for me as a human whatsoever.” B later contacted A, but she was unable to receive an apology, and A merely told her, “Let’s go back to how we were before.”

B, who belatedly filed an official complaint against A, explained that she had been receiving psychiatric treatment for trauma but decided to submit the complaint due to the recent revelation of sex crimes committed by celebrities. She was questioned by the police on March 27 as the plaintiff.

A’s agency revealed, “It was a consensual sexual relationship, and there was no coercion. A is currently performing overseas and will sincerely participate in police investigations upon his return to Korea.”

The police will soon call in the singer for questioning, and they are also considering a cross-examination with the plaintiff.

It’s being alleged that the idol in question is [Spoiler]SS501’s Kim Hyun Joon, whose agency denied the allegations saying that the victim is “taking advantage of the fact that he is a celebrity”.

do not read netizens comments, they're blaming the victim and call her a golddigger.

i applaud the victim for coming forward, but doubt that anything will come out of it.

Haha okay. I was considering they did, but then I also stopped following SS501 when they split, so I didn't know if I missed some stuff.

I guess bc it was a blind item that I skimmed over this, but reading that its Baby is disappointing .

//She stated that A had sexually assaulted her in her home in Ilsan after //he came home drunk.//

It seems like they were dating.
