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.

it's so sad that we have to worry all the time about men's motives. you can never be sure that they will be decent and then people will put the blame on you: you should've known better, why did you go there, why did you wear that, etc. men aren't some uncontrollable animals. self-control and empathy is something we all should be capable of as human beings

people say Not all Men! but if someone gets raped they get blamed for trusting men, basically we are forced to be in a constant state of fear

“people say Not all Men! but if someone gets raped they get blamed for trusting men”...THIS!!! the easy mental gymnastics ppl pull to ALWAYS blame the woman is Olympic Gold Medal level.

And it takes up SO much mental space having to worry about this and that.

yeah exactly. it's like they say that you shouldn't think of men that way and that there are only a few rotten apples but then when a woman is assaulted then they ask why didn't she think of all men as predatory animals or something. sorry, i wanted to have a human interaction with a man?
