Police recommended non-indictment for Kim Hyung Jun’s sexual assault case

On June 11, a source from the Ilsan Eastern Provincial Police Agency revealed that the police forwarded Kim Hyung Jun’s case on suspicions of sexual assault to prosecution with a recommendation of non-indictment due to a lack of evidence.

The police started investigating the case at the end of March after a woman accused Kim Hyung Jun of sexually assaulting her in May 2010. In response, Kim Hyung Jun filed a lawsuit against the accuser for false accusation and defamation. The singer also strongly denied the allegations during questioning by the police, saying that the relationship between the two was consensual.

A source from the police stated, “After investigating [the case] based on statements from both parties and what allegedly happened at the time, there was no evidence that [proved] the accusations [are true]. As a result, [the police] decided to [forward the case] with a recommendation of non-indictment.”

Kim Hyung Jun debuted with SS501 in 2005, and he enlisted in the military in 2017. After fulfilling his mandatory military service as a conscripted police officer, he was discharged last December. In March, he released his single album “Snap Shot.”

I'm not surprised, given that it allegedly happened in 2010 there is really no physical evidence left.

I'm not surprised, I kind of figured that something that happened so long ago would result in this.

Also curious, because I remember it being talked about here, but all the posts about his last scandal that were on Omona aren't there anymore? I looked in his tag to make sure I was thinking of the right person, and there's nothing.

Are you mistaking him for the other SS501 member, Kim Hyun Joong? Their names are confusingly similar.

Kim Hyun Joong: Abused girlfriend.
Kim Hyung Joon: Accused of sexual assault.

I always remembered which one was which because the younger one (Hyung Joon) would have called the other one hyung. Without that I would have been just as confused lol. Their names are so hard to remember, especially since they were in the same group.
