Former EXO member Kris (Wu Yi Fan, 30) has been arrested in China for r*pe.
On the 31st, at around 11:30pm, Chaoyang Branch of Public Security Bureau of Beijing announced, "We'd like to inform you about a report submitted about Wu Yi Fan for seducing a young woman to have sex with him. We have detained Wu (Kris) on charges of r*pe and we're investigating the matter."
In the meantime, police revealed on the 22nd, "Kris' manager invited Du Meizhou (18) to Wu Yi Fan's house in December 2020 for an interview as a female lead in a music video but [Spoiler (click to open)]was forced to drink alcohol and had her cell phone taken away by the manager. She refused but was threatened using his status as a celebrity and forced to have sex. Afterwards, Wu deposited 32,000 yuan (5.6 million won) to keep her silent. The two kept in touch through messenger until April 2021. Du Meizhou later revealed there were at least 9 other victims and 2 of them were minors."
Afterwards, Kris was dropped by 10 company sponsors and went into hiatus. He denied the reports stating, "I have never r*ped anyone using casting as an excuse. I have never slept with minors."
Later, a man (Liu mo), saw Du Meizhou's revelations online, approached Kris pretending to be Du Meizhou (victim) and demanded 3 million yuan (530 million won) from Kris' agency and sent fraudulent bank account info. In response, Kris' mother transferred 500,000 yuan (88 million won) to Du Meizhou's real account. When Liu didn't receive the money, he pretended to be an official from Kris' agency and asked for the money through Du Meizhou (victim) who transferred 180,000 yuan (31 million won). As a result, Kris's company, his mother, and Du Meizhou were both scammed by Liu.
Police arrested Liu on the 22nd in Jiangsu and he's currently being detained in Beijing.
In the meantime, the maximum penalty for r*pe of a minor in China is death.
