SS501's Kim Hyung Jun to undergo police questioning following sexual assault allegations

SS501’s Kim Hyung Jun, who was previously accused of sexual assault, will be summoned for police questioning.

On April 3, a police source in charge of Kim Hyung Jun’s sexual assault case stated, “We are currently discussing the dates to summon Kim Hyung Jun for questioning. The date has not been confirmed yet. Also, if he does not agree to it, he cannot be forced to stand at the photo line (have photos taken by the press).”

On March 25, plaintiff A accused Kim Hyung Jun of sexually assaulting her in May 2010. On the April 2 broadcast of SBS’s “Entertainment Night,” she explained, “I met him at a bar around December 2007 when I had a part-time job there. In 2010, I heard [he] moved, but he came to my house drunk. He pat the sheets on my bed saying he would put me to sleep. He suddenly pressed on my arm, and I felt extremely humiliated.” She added that she received psychiatric treatment for the trauma caused by the incident.

Kim Hyung Jun and his agency denied all claims of sexual assault, saying that the relations were consensual. They emphasized that this happened nine years ago and stated that they plan to take legal action against her for false accusations and defamation.

Kim Hyung Jun will return to Korea to be questioned after completing his world tour “Master Piece” early next month.

The fact that so many men are into sexual assault is disturbing to say the least. We all know it's not about sex so why are they so after power and making women crawl on the ground is baffling...

Also that "it hapenned nine years ago"... I don't care? A crime is a crime. You pay for it. Wtf at this line of thought, are we talking about yoghurts here for it to have an expiration date ?

The usual depressing internalized misogyny.

nothing baffling about it. men for centuries and to this day have had most of the political and economic power in society at the expense of women and those deemed weaker by society, so a lot of men have gone drunk of the power and want to benefit themselves only. it's the same reason men sexually assault other men and children. they are taught that they have to be strong and physically dominate others, so they continue to uphold this system. some men try to speak out for equality but most see nothing wrong with this system and say that's just how the world works and it will always be that way. and they would rather attack feminists and women for speaking out against sexual assault and power dynamics in society

I think there may be a distinction here between types of sexual assaults, I have the impression from some of these korean (and other) cases that the men really aren't viewing it as assault. The whole, we were friends, we drank together, she let me in, as if that is all some undercover signaling that she really wanted it. All related to the idea of how she dressed, and women just like to act not easy but really want it, etc. etc. bullshit patriarchy repressed crap.

And the other, the sexual assaults that are definitely not about sex.

I'm not defending him at all, this is some f-ched up shit, but this maybe a different type of pathology/societal failure. (a pathology very rampant among the older gen where I live who I work with.) Either way, legal consequences, off to jail.
