With his second hearing in just two days, Go Young Wook‘s case is taking an unexpected turn as the first accuser has been removed from the list of plaintiffs. Previously, Go Young Wook was charged for sexually assaulting a minor in April after getting the victim, who was only 18 years old at the time, drunk and having sexual relations with her. As the news broke out, Go Young Wook was greatly criticized by the public and media.
However, the initial accuser and the victim of the first count of sexual assault has disappeared since then. Many legal experts are assuming that the text messages between the victim and Go Young Wook, as well as recorded phone conversations between the victim’s ex-boyfriend and Go Young Hook could not prove that Go Young Wook violently forced the victim to have a sexual relationship with him. Go Young Wook’s lawyer confirmed, “It is true that the initial accuser has been removed from the trail. The details of it will be revealed through the rest of the trials.”
Currently there are four victims in Go Young Wook’s case. The ages of these victims are from 13 and 14 years old, all allegedly sexually harassed and/or assaulted by Go Young Wook. However, the first two plaintiffs of the case have dropped the charges during police investigation of the case. The second trial of Go Young Woo’s alleged sexual assault of minors will be held on February 28 at 4:40pm KST.
