Police book two idol members and issue arrest warrant for singer ‘A’ in Open World investigation

It has been revealed that the police have booked the two idol members mentioned previously, and have issued an arrest warrant for individual ‘A’ in the ongoing investigation against Open World Entertainment‘s CEO.

On April 18th, Seoul Kangnam Police told TVDaily, “We are issuing out a warrant of arrest for the singer ‘A’, who is in his 30s, involved in the case.” They also commented, “The two idol group members have also been booked without detention.

As mentioned before, ‘A’ is reported to be someone who has a personal connection to the Open World Entertainment CEO, but is not under the label.

The police also revealed that they will be concluding the investigations on April 19th to hand over the case to prosecutors.

So far, from what is circulating the Korean media outlets, the above statements seem to have been confirmed. What hasn’t been confirmed is news concerning The Boss, and whether or not they are involved in the case.

According to one media outlet, News1, they have obtained a statement from a source within the police who has stated, “The idol members involved in this case are not from The Boss… The two members involved who carried out the commands by the CEO have been booked.

Considering that News1 is the only one to have acquired this statement from the source, and as other media outlets (at the time of writing) have not made any mention of The Boss, it remains to be seen whether this is valid or not.

In related news, Open World Entertainment once again denied any involvement of their artists, and apologized to the public earlier today through an official statement.

Seriously. Rather than pander to the public, grovel to the victims. Ensure justice is done, and while no amount of money will ever eliminate the trauma they have suffered, compensate them.

Oh, and lock up the rapists and throw away the key. Forever.

Well saying that they're not from the boss pretty much narrows it down to X-5...

I'm surprised k netizens still haven't exposed singer A.
herro_kitty 18th-Apr-2012 01:41 pm (UTC)
I think in the previous article it was said singer A wasn't really famous

This is sch a disgusting mess and open entertainment can fuxk off with there so called apology
gumdrop_showers 18th-Apr-2012 01:34 pm (UTC)
This is just ugh. Open World can just fuck themselves with their lame ass apology. I sincerely hope the victims get justice.

Just to be clear: The CEO was already booked right? I mean, they're not just going after the small fish and skipping over the shark, right?
ginevragirl 18th-Apr-2012 01:56 pm (UTC)
Yes, he's already been arrested and booked.
marsheumallow 18th-Apr-2012 01:45 pm (UTC)
apology? like that's going to fix anything. and i want names.

i rather not think about the boss' members being involved in this case, mostly because of karam's past :c

where are the ninja netizens when you need them
goldynchickie 18th-Apr-2012 01:47 pm (UTC)
Well damn shit just got real.

They shouldn't apologize to the public. They need to apologize to the victims though it really would mean much...

For singer "A" I don't understand why they would hide his name. But on the other hand, if the two idols are underaged, then I can understand somewhat the reason behind it.

but ppl are still getting arrested so what's wrong with apologising to ppl who were worried about the artists who weren't involved?
shikinluv 18th-Apr-2012 02:12 pm (UTC)
because they should be apologising to the victims. the abuse happened under their nose. they should acknowledge it.
lydzi 18th-Apr-2012 02:24 pm (UTC)
That apology feels more like a slap in the face tbh. Like "sorry for the incovenience those victims made by opening their mouth". It's very hard not to feel almost hate about that kind of official statement. Priorities really. Have some respect. At least try to appear with some if you're incapable of anything.
Oh X-5...I was beginning to warm to you and voilà. Guess it's another lesson about the smoke and mirrors of the idol world.

I havent said much so far because honestly what is there to say? I am beyond words. But I really want names right now. These people need to be shamed for the rest of their lives for what they have done. they need to never forget it as long as they live. I hope netizens figure out which idol members are responsible. (I hope korean law throws the book at them but considering korean prison terms are laughable i dont hold out much hope) as for the apology I think my icon sums up my reaction pretty well.
