[Overview] Park Shi Hoo Scandal Summary

[Overview] Park Shi Hoo Scandal Summary

Now that the allegations from the Park Shi Hoo scandal are starting to wind down, let’s take a step back and try to break down all the press that’s been thrown at the public. (Seriously, it’s been “Throw everything at the wall and hope something sticks.”)

Here’s the story as we know it. Rookie actor K set up actor Park Shi Hoo and trainee A to meet up for drinks on February 14, 2013. They all arrived after 10:30 PM and stayed about three hours.

At least one bottle of soju was consumed. Park is said to be a lightweight drinker so we may assume that they did not drink to his limit, but the actual limit is not clear. (I advise ignoring this part of the story altogether.)

Park paid for the drinks, then K drove him and A to Park’s home. Park walked in as K carried A in on his back. Everyone agrees that Park spent the night with A. No one agrees on the nature of what happened to A.

On February 18, A decided to report Park for rape. It is not uncommon for rape to go completely unreported, so the delay is not evidence of anything, although it does make it impossible to trace drugs and difficult to trace other biological evidence. Park was summoned for questioning on the 19th and then the 24th, but failed to appear both times. His third summons was for March 1, which I assume he showed up for. He also felt that the particular police department was being too open with the press so he requested that his case be passed to a different department.

Meanwhile, A consulted with best friend B, who spoke to CEO C, who spoke to CEO Hwang of Park’s former agency, Eyagi Entertainment. Park has countersued A for defamation, and also her associates B and C. Oh, and parts of the texts and such exchanged between A and K have been revealed but not in full. (Why the evidence was aired on TV and not controlled by the police is beyond me.)

A claims that Park raped her on the morning of February 15, and that she awoke naked and being molested by K. Park maintains his innocence and K is backing him. And then, there’s this other problematic character, A’s friend B and her suggestion that date rape drugs were involved. What happened that night?

It’s not looking good for Park Shi Hoo, but it’s not looking great for A, either.

It was reported that she had to be carried into Park’s home, so she couldn’t have been in any condition to consent. That fact alone needs to be taken seriously. However, she also couldn’t have been in any condition to count the number of times that she was raped (as has been pointed out so astutely by at least one Soompi commenter). One possible reason is that she’s just tripping on the buzz. It sounds as if she talked to her family, B, the CEOs, the press. Memories can be affected by suggestions, so if, for example, a reporter grilled her on details using suggestion, her story could evolve away from the truth. It would have been wiser for her to restrict talking to just the police and the people processing the evidence.

I believe that it is very possible that Park Shi Hoo is not lying. I also believe that telling the truth as he saw it does not rule out rape. Many of us know that drunk people cannot consent to, well, anything. Things work differently in drama-land, where men and women get drunk together, sleep together, and life goes on. It romanticizes the whole “upset girl gets drunk, has sex with the guy who escorts her home” thing. A lot of guys on TV do the right thing and walk away, but that’s set up like “This is proof that he has a heart of gallant gold,” instead of “All guys should default to this behavior.” In Park Shi Hoo’s mind, he is the main character of his life story, because that’s how people think.

Human nature needs to be accounted for when analyzing what we’ve been told about what happened.

Still, we don’t really know what happened. People always ask the public to refrain from drawing conclusions before the investigation releases its results for good reason. I can’t tell you who’s in the right and who’s in the wrong. In the end, the direct results of the investigation really only pertain to Park Shi Hoo, K, and A. If Park Shi Hoo turns out to be innocent (as Sherlock Holmes would say, “There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact,” so I discourage taking news reports for granted), he’s back in business. If not, his career is over. If K did not molest A, he’s also in the clear. A, on the other hand, might want to find a career away from the spotlight before the infamous netizens uncover her identity, no matter what the outcome of the investigation is.

What do you think?

It echoes my exact sentiments. If he truly likes her, wouldn't he want to show his perfect self and make a good impression and sent her back to her house when she is drunk ? He has every intention of having sex with her that night, with or without her consent (Isn't that the reason why he brought her back to his house ?). I think he assumed that she would be willing to sleep with him (well, with his celebrity status, he thought most girls would be willing). But his assumption is wrong. I believe the girl didn't give her consent that is why she cry rape. To PSH, it is not rape because he thought the girl is willing but to the girl it is rape because she didn't give her consent.  </div> </blockquote> <blockquote class="UserQuote"> <div class="QuoteAuthor"><a href="/profile/1965049/samarendra">samarendra</a> wrote: <a href="/discussion/comment/25722287#Comment_25722287" class="QuoteLink"><span class="ArrowLink">»</span></a></div> <div class="QuoteText">Really no matter what happen I can never believe PSH is innocent if not entirely guilty....what gentleman who says he like her as confirmed by PSH and his friend in a telephonic interview would bang her the very first day or should i say the very few hours after they met ....also oi is confirmed A the victim was carried on PSH'S accomplice K 's back to PSH's apartment i mean he banged her when she is unconscious and also it is revealed in text message her feeling of shocked on being naked with PSH in the very next morning in those texts and also from the text between K and A it is crystal clear that A liked K rather than PSH.....CONSENSUAL SEX MY FOOT?.........there is no truth in her being fantasized by PSH in a few hours however it was other the other way around as confirmed it was more PSH who liked her....as confirmed by PSH and his friend he wanted to date and continue further the relationship....a man wholiked her wanted to date banged her in their first date which is more like a first meeting ...IS this the new definition of date?.....such a holy crap in name of a date then....also when she is unconscious if you add then it is certainly rape..........</div> </blockquote> rn Aren't you being too naive lady. Don't take every single thing in this world according to your standards. Until he is convicted guilty, he is presumed to be innocent. Sleeping with her the moment he laid his eyes on her doesn't mean that his statement of liking her is a lie. HE IS A MAN. For all we know, sleeping with her could have triggered that LIKE FEELING as he was saying. MOREOVER, LIKE IS DIFFERENT FROM LOVE.. HELLO! ARen't you missing a point here. Another thing for you, IT WOULD BE MORE UNBELIEVABLE FOR MAN TO SAY I LOVE HER THE MOMENT I LAID MY EYES ON HER THUS, I COMMIT TO RESPECT HER WITH ALL MY HEART. REMEMBER THE SAYING, A MAN GIVES LOVE TO GET SEX, WHILE WOMEN GIVE SEX TO GET LOVE.. Stop being idealistic and live in reality before giving out your shallow opinion. I'm not generalizing, but its common to all men. They can engage physically without involving their hearts. WHETHER YOU ACCEPT IT OR NOT, THE WORLD DOESN'T NEED YOUR APPROVAL. In PSH's case, it does't make him less of a person just because he engaged in sexual activities. MEN need more time than women before they fully develop that LIKE FEELING INTO LOVE so don't expect men to be all clean with their words, thoughts and deeds when they say they like you. IT'S A TOTALLY DIFFERENT THING WHEN THEY SAY THEY LOVE A WOMAN. Just so you know, I DON'T EVEN FEEL SORRY FOR A EVEN IF PSH IS LATER ON CONVICTED. WHAT KIND OF A WOMAN WOULD ACTUALLY DRINK MORE THAN SHE COULD IN THE COMPANY OF A MAN SHE JUST MET, if she's not ready to face the consequences of her action! HELLO AGAIN!

We’re not going to translate it word for word but will just give you our interpretation. It contains references to certain elements we have not come across before (e.g. PSH’s grandparents) and since we have no way to verify these, we are only offering them here for your reference.rn rn After meeting family in cottage in Buyeo with heartbreaking truthrn rn That’s the title of the article. Yes, these relentless reporters have gone to Buyeo to track down PSH’s relatives to get them to talk about the case. They would do that, wouldn’t they? Anything to sell their magazine!rn rn The article starts by outlining the Park Si Hoo case, that more than a month has passed. This case has attracted so much public interest and generated malicious rumors and comments. PSH has recently become so well loved with the warm reception of CDDA, but his image has received a deadly blow in this incident from which it is difficult for him to recover.rn rn Then it goes on to discuss the B angle, the affidavit she has given to PSH’s lawyers after she was sued by PSH and Hwang of EYAGI.rn rn The case has dragged on for more than one month, and PSH has lost 10 kg. and is worn out physically and mentally.rn rn Last year on the SBS TV program “Healing Camp” it was revealed PSH came from the landed gentry of Buyeo. So their reporter decided to go to Buyeo to see his family and get the story from the villagers.rn rn House of the landed gentry (萬石戶) – Hanok homern rn It was not easy to get to the house, the one built by Park Si Hoo’s grandfather in the rural countryside located in front of the mountains. PSH attended elementary school 200m away from home, and his brother also attended secondary school not far from the house.rn rn PSH’s ancestral home “Plum’s Landing” is a large hanok house about 10m vertical and 30m horizontal. There is a large pond, in addition to the main house and several outbuildings, including an outdoor toilet with separate features. It has the tranquil atmosphere of the old rural houses.rn rn The house has no boundaries, so anyone can explore it. In the SBS program “Healing Camp” PSH has said: “The original house was burned down in a fire so only 3 buildings were left.” His grandmother is still staying at the house but her mobility is limited.rn rn Tight-mouthed aunt: “Unlucky to be caught …”rn rn A little distance from the main building, there was a brick house that seemed to be used as a primary residence. A SUV that looked like it belonged to PSH’s father was parked there. Peering into the glass windows, the reporter saw a woman working there. She is PSH’s aunt.rn rn “Sihoo’s father is not here. He’s gone away on some business. He should be back after a few days.”rn rn She was doing laundry in the yard, and she continued to speak softly:rn rn “It was Grandma’s birthday a little while ago. It’s been a long time since I’ve been back in the countryside, so I’m staying for a while.”rn rn Of course PSH could not come back for his grandmother’s birthday. At first his aunt said nothing and just sighed, and then she seemed to be talking to herself:rn rn “Our Sihoo met with an unfortunate incident …”rn rn She seemed to be much affected by the incident of her nephew.rn rn “How can I feel good with the situation like this? But we will get through this. It will be resolved.”rn rn Her face was full of sorrow but she reiterated it would be resolved. Then she turned her back and could not carry on the conversation anymore.rn rn The village people: Instead of worry, all full of praisern rn Most of the people the reporter met that day were over 60 years old, all preoccupied with working in the fields.rn rn “Saw on TV what happened to Sihoo. How could something like this happen? Looks like it’s the work of that management company.”rn rn Everywhere the reporter went he heard voices questioning the role of PSH’s former management company. But one thing was impressive — everybody in the neighborhood believed a Park grandchild could not have done something like this. Perhaps it was because of the good reputation the Park family has long established so people here have confidence in them.rn rn “Not so long ago Sihoo came back with 4 or 5 friends to see his grandmother, and he also gave his father an imported car. His grandmother still goes to church every Sunday even though her health is not so good. So Sihoo could not have done something like that.”rn rn There was unanimous praise for the Park family.rn rn “Ever since his grandfather’s time, they have taken care of the villagers and see to it that we are well-fed and well-clothed. A very good person. Anyway, we are sure it will be resolved soon.”rn rn They were full of stories about PSH as a child and everybody started reminiscing.rn rn “Sihoo is a quiet and good child. Look at his father and his grandfather – they are all like that – very nice people.”rn rn And then after a little while the reporter managed to meet PSH’s grandfather (who is not usually visible). He is staying at a detached house some distance from the main house.rn rn Grandfather gives warm impression: “I am not worried.”rn rn In the TV program “Healing Camp” PSH mentioned his grandfather used to go hunting on a horse. Now he looked very old but was still healthy. He was of course troubled by his grandson’s problems but he still greeted the reporter warmly.rn rn “Sihoo’s mother told me over the phone. I did not speak directly with my grandson. [Asked where PSH's mother is now] She has been with him all this time. She left for Seoul soon after Sihoo.”rn rn “[About the accusation against PSH] I heard it reported on TV. But I’m not worried. There’s nothing to worry about. My heart feels calm, and so is Sihoo’s Dad. Our family is like that. And I think it will be resolved well. It should be finished soon.”rn rn He did not hide his affection for the grandson he has watched growing up.rn rn “He came here last year when the weather was not so cold. Now I’d like to see him again.”rn rn The grandson PSH could not come to his grandmother’s birthday this year, but all the village elders and especially PSH’s family believe the case would be resolved soon.rn rn Just before the reporter left the village, PSH’s father called — looked like it’s global roaming. So what PSH’s aunt said was true, that he was away. But what emergency called him away from Korea at this time? Must be that he was not worried, that like other family members, he believed things would be resolved, as they kept saying.rn rn rn rn rn rn rn rn 충남 부여 시골집에서 만난 박시후 가족이 밝히는 애달픈 속내rn rn 처음엔 놀란 가슴 쓸었지만…”rn rn 충남 부여 시골집에서 만난 박시후 가족이 밝히는 애달픈 속내rn rn ‘박시후 사건’이 초반과 다른 양상을 보이면서 그를 둘러싼 악성 댓글 및 루머도 점차 사그라지는 분위기다. 이런 가운데, 박 씨의 고향을 찾아 가족을 직접 만났다. 표정은 매우 어두웠지만 잘 해결되리라는 믿음만은 굳건해 보였다.rn rn 배우 박시후가 강간 혐의로 피소된 일명 ‘박시후 사건’이 언론에 최초 공개된 지 약 한 달이 지났다. 연예인들의 불미스런 사건이 ‘무죄 추정의 원칙’에 입각, 최초에는 이니셜로 보도되는 게 일반적이라면, 이번 사건은 최초 보도부터 박시후의 이름이 만천하에 공개되어 관심을 끌었다. 최근 영화 <내가 살인범이다>로 원톱 주연을 맡은데다 드라마 <청담동 앨리스>의 흐뭇한 시청률로 대중의 관심과 사랑을 한몸에 받은 박시후. 그는 이번 사건으로 회복하기 어려울 만큼 치명적인 이미지 손상을 입었다.rn rn B씨 진술서rn rn 박시후 손 들어줄까?rn rn 하지만 박시후 측에 유리한 상황이 속속 공개되면서 상황은 새로운 국면을 맞는 분위기다. 박시후를 고소한 A씨의 지인 B씨가 결정적인 역할을 했다. A씨에게 “(합의금으로) 10억원을 요구하라”며 “이번 기회에 돈을 확실히 받든지 박시후를 추락시키든지 하라”고 조언한 B씨는 어느 순간 태도를 달리했다. 현재 박시후로부터 맞고소를 당한 B씨는 얼마 전 박시후 측 변호인을 직접 찾아가 진술서를 작성했다. 진술서의 내용인즉슨 이렇다. A씨가 “성폭행을 당한 것 같다”고 말해 진심으로 믿고 도와주었으나 추후 언론에 공개된 카톡 전문 및 A씨의 평소 행동이 성폭행을 당한 피해자치고는 너무도 태연했다는 것. 그래서 의문이 들기 시작했고, 본의 아니게 일이 꼬인 지금은 괴롭고 죽고 싶은 심정이라며 박시후에게 피해를 입혀 미안하다는 것이다. B씨의 진술서는 차후 사건판결에 적지 않은 영향을 미칠 것으로 보인다. 이렇듯 양측의 증거와 주장이 엇갈림과 전복을 오가는 가운데, 사건을 담당한 서울 서부경찰서는 3월 안으로 일을 마무리할 예정이라고 밝혔다. 사건은 빠르면 이달 안에 검찰로 송치될 것으로 보인다.rn rn 거짓말탐지기 조사까지 받으며 한 달 이상 지속된 이번 사건으로 박 씨는 몸도 마음도 상당히 지친 상태인 것으로 알려졌다. 최근 박 씨의 측근은 한 매체와 전화통화로 “(박시후가) 살이 10kg 가까이 빠진 걸로 알고 있다”며 “평범한 생활이 불가능할 만큼 정신적으로 피폐한 상태”라고 밝혔다.rn rn 지난해 겨울 <힐링캠프, 기쁘지 아니한가>를 통해 충남 부여의 만석꾼 3대손임을 밝힌 박시후 씨. 기자는 박 씨의 본가를 찾아가 그의 가족 및 마을 사람들의 이야기를 들어보기로 했다.rn rn 만석꾼 집안다운rn rn 한옥집 자태rn rn TV를 통해 몇 차례 공개된 적이 있는 박 씨의 시골집을 찾아가는 건 그리 어렵지 않았다. 충남 부여 가곡리에 위치한 박 씨의 본가는 할아버지대부터 내려온 것으로, 집 뒤에 있는 산 터 일대를 소유한 만석꾼 집안이 맞았다. 하지만 음식점 하나 없는 시골 중의 시골이라 슈퍼를 가려 해도 10분 거리의 읍내를 나가야 했다. 박 씨가 다닌 초등학교는 집에서 불과 200m 떨어진 곳에 위치했다. 박 씨와 박 씨의 동생이 다닌 중고등학교 역시 집과 멀지 않은 곳에 있을 만큼 동네는 작고 아담했다.rn rn 박 씨의 본가는 ‘매화관광농원’이라는 푯말이 세워진 큰 한옥집이었다. 마당에는 가로 30m, 세로 10m쯤 되는 큰 연못이 있었고, 본채로 보이는 건물 외에도 실외 화장실을 포함한 별채 서너 채가 따로 마련되어 있었다. 하지만 언론에 소개된 것처럼 으리으리한 부잣집으로 보이지는 않았다. 그보다는 고즈넉한 분위기의 낡고 오랜 시골 가옥에 가까워 보였다.rn rn 앞서 말했듯 박 씨의 본가는 ‘관광농원’ 역할도 겸하는 만큼 아무나 둘러볼 수 있게 개방되어 있다. 기자가 있는 동안에도 등산복을 입은 중년의 관광객 네댓 명이 차에서 내려 연못가를 둘러보다 가기도 했다. 박 씨가 방송에서 “원래 세 채였지만 불에 타고 한 채만 남았다”고 밝힌 본채에는 박 씨의 할머니가 머물고 있었지만 거동이 불편한 그녀를 만나기는 힘들었다. 이번엔 연못 옆으로 난 자갈길을 따라 본채에서 100m쯤 떨어진 현대식 벽돌집으로 향했다.rn rn 입 굳게 다문 고모rn rn “재수 없이 걸려서…”rn rn 신발마다 흙먼지가 수북이 쌓여 있던 한옥 본채와 달리, 벽돌집은 실주거지로 이용하는 듯했다. 집 앞에는 박 씨 아버지의 차량으로 보이는 SUV 두 대가 주차되어 있었다. 내부가 들여다보이는 유리문 너머로 한 여성이 보였다. 그녀는 박 씨의 고모였다.rn rn “시후 아버지는 여기 없어요. (차가 그대로라고 하자) 친구 차를 타고 볼일이 있어 어디 멀리 갔어요. 아마 며칠 동안 안 들어올 거예요.”rn rn 마당에서 빨래를 널던 박 씨의 고모는 무심한 듯 담담하게 말을 이어나갔다.rn rn “시후 할머니 생신이 얼마 전이었어요. 그래서 오랜만에 시골에 내려온 거죠. (집을 비운 오빠 대신) 잠깐 머물고 있는 거예요.”rn rn 물론 박 씨는 친할머니의 생일에 오지 못했다. 박 씨의 고모는 처음엔 아무 말 없이 한숨만 내쉬었다. 그리고는 이내 혼잣말을 내뱉으며 속상함을 드러냈다.rn rn “우리 시후가 재수 없이 걸려서….”rn rn 그녀는 연일 뉴스에 오르내리는 조카의 불미스런 사건 때문에 매우 속이 상한 듯 보였다.rn rn “(상황이 이런데) 기분이 좋을 리가 있겠어요? 그래도 잘 해결돼야죠. 잘 해결될 거예요.”rn rn 얼굴엔 근심이 가득했지만 그녀는 잘 해결될 거라는 말을 거듭 되뇌었다. 그리고는 돌아서는 그녀와 더 이상 대화를 지속할 수 없었다.rn rn 마을 사람들rn rn 걱정 대신 칭찬 일색rn rn 이날 마을에서 만난 사람들은 대부분 60살 이상의 노인들이었다. 대부분 논밭 일에 몰두하느라 정신이 없어 보였다.rn rn “(시후 일은) TV로 보고 있지. 어쩌다 그런 일이 생겼는지…. 그 회사라는 데에서 작당을 하고 그런 것 같아.”rn rn 전 소속사 대표를 의심하는 듯한 목소리도 여기저기서 들렸다. 다만 한 가지 인상적이었던 것은 손자뻘인 박 씨의 사건에 대해 동네사람들 모두 큰 걱정을 하지 않았다는 것. 아마도 오래전부터 이 지역에서 좋은 평판을 얻은 박 씨 집안에 대한 신뢰 때문인 것 같았다.rn rn “요전에 친구들 네댓 명하고 할머니 보러 한번 들렀다지. 시후가 아버지 차도 외국 거로다가 한 대 뽑아줬잖아. 그리고 그 집 할머니가 일요일마다 꼬박꼬박 교회에 다녀. 몸도 안 좋으신데 말이야. 그러니까 (시후가) 저기할 사람은 아니야.”rn rn 박 씨 집안에 대해서는 하나같이 입을 모아 칭찬했다.rn rn “할아버지 때부터 마을 사람들 다 먹이고 입히고 했어. 아주 좋은 사람이라고. 아무튼 시후 일이 잘 해결돼야 할 텐데.”rn rn 박시후의 어린 시절에 대해서는 기억 못 하는 동네 어른이 없을 만큼 소문이 자자했다고 한다.rn rn “조용하고 얌전한 편이었지. 착했어. 그 집 인물이 원래 다 좋아. 그 아버지 봐. 할아버지도 그렇고.”rn rn 그리고 잠시 후, 어렵게 연락이 닿은 박 씨 할아버지를 만날 수 있었다. 그는 본채에서 조금 떨어진 외딴 별채에 머물고 있었다.rn rn 푸근한 인상의 박시후 친할아버지rn rn “걱정 안 해”rn rn 방송에서 박시후가 “취미생활로 말을 타고 사냥을 하셨다”고 말한 적 있는 그의 할아버지는 고령의 나이에도 불구하고 정정한 모습이었다. 손자의 일로 심란할 법도 했지만 기자를 따뜻하게 맞아주었다.rn rn “시후 일은 시후 엄마를 통해 전화로 들어. 직접 (손자와) 통화한 적은 없어. (박 씨의 어머니는 박 씨와 있느냐고 묻자) 시후 옆에 같이 있지. 시후 서울 가고 얼마 뒤에 따라 올라갔으니까.”rn rn 박 씨의 할아버지는 손자의 사건을 TV로 처음 접했다.rn rn “(시후가 고소당했다는 걸) 방송으로 보고 알았지. 근데 걱정은 안 해. 걱정할 것도 없어. 그냥 맘 편히 있는 거지. 나도, 시후 아빠도 원체 우리 집안사람들 성격이 느긋한 편이야. 그리고 잘 해결될 거라고 생각해. 빨리 마무리되었으면 좋겠어.”rn rn 그는 어린 시절부터 가까이에서 보아온 손자에 대한 애정을 숨기지 않았다.rn rn “작년에 날씨 안 추울 때 찾아온 게 마지막이야. 이제 또 봐야지.”rn rn 손자 박 씨는 결국 올해 할머니의 생신에 오지 못했다. 하지만 동네 어르신들, 특히 박 씨의 가족은 사건이 잘 마무리될 거라고 굳게 믿고 있었다.rn rn 마을을 떠나기 전, 마지막으로 박 씨의 아버지 박용훈 씨에게 전화를 걸었다. 휴대전화는 곧장 해외로밍으로 연결됐다. “일이 있어 한동안 오지 않을 것”이라던 박 씨 고모의 말은 사실이었다. 박 씨의 아버지가 무슨 일로 급히 한국을 떠났는지는 알 수 없다. 하지만 일이 잘 해결될 거라는 다른 가족의 말처럼, 그 역시 근심을 뒤로 하고 비행기에 오르지 않았을까?rn rn (Source: <a href="http://woman.chosun.com/magazine/viewArticle.do?c=CATE0010&atCode=1561&pg=" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://woman.chosun.com/magazine/viewArticle.do?c=CATE0010&atCode=1561&pg=</a>)rn rn (Credits: <a href="http://woman.chosu.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://woman.chosu.com</a>;rn

Park Si Hoo is known for not being able to drink and you did not drink, so was A the only one who drank?rn rn K: Park Si Hoo has never been able to drink much and I was not feeling well, so I did not drink. A was drinking and creating atmosphere and playing drinking games with Sihoo. Sihoo could not hold his liquor and was half dozing; I even took some photos. A drank a lot, but I did not drink.rn rn A WAS CREATING atmosphere and playing drinking games with Sihoorn rn rn rn rn Q: What was the situation when the 3 of you went to Park Si Hoo’s apartment? A claimed she was raped by Park Si Hoo while she was unconscious and you also molested her.rn rn K: Originally we planned to continue drinking in Sihoo’s apartment. But when she got out of the car, A was already drunk. A vomited in the elevator. This was not caught on CCTV but the apartment security guards confirmed this fact. Some reports say I took off A’s clothes to wash off the vomit but this is not true. Anyone who is drunk becomes at least half-conscious after vomiting. A was sober enough to go to the bathroom to wash up and then go to bed.rn rn Unconscious ? norn rn drug ? norn rn Q: You left Park Si Hoo’s home around noon on February 15 and A left at 2:40 p.m What was the atmosphere like then?rn rn K: It was cordial when the two of them parted. Sihoo and A even exchanged cell phone numbers. CCTV footage showed A was looking cheerful in the elevator, fiddling with her cell phone and touching her hair. If she had really been raped, would she have looked so calm?rn rn CCTV footage showed A was looking cheerful in the elevatorrn rn Sihoo and A even exchanged cell phone numbersrn rn This pumpkin man 's mistake was forgetting pay for her for one beautiful night service even she was waiting & chit chat with him till 2.40pm she need his $$$ not his number !!!rn rn Q: Some reports say the Park Si Hoo side offered A 100 million won as settlement, but A refused because she wanted Park Si Hoo punished. Is this true?rn rn A: It is true. Both sides wanted to settle and 100 million was mentioned.. Some in the media say Sihoo is Goliath and A is David. (Reference is to the bliblical story of the battle between David and the giant Goliath.) However, in a case of sexual violence, the celebrity is actually David. Because he has lost so much already, even if it turns out that he is innocent, he would still receive strong criticism in public opinion in such a case. That was the situation Sihoo was in, so both sides were trying to work out a settlement. As the media reported, A did not explicitly ask for a figure but she made unacceptable demands like “wanting to live in a foreign country” and “PSH must be responsible for her until she is 80 years old.” So they could not reach a consensus. It is true Sihoo’s mother met with A’s father, but the media did not mention the above facts and just presented it like Sihoo’s mother was trying to solve everything with money. It is deplorable that A should try to make things out to be like this.rn rn After everywhere attacking PSH she thought everything would be OK so his mom offer 100 million but she asked him supporting her going to foreign country + responsible for her until she is 80 years old ?? $$$$$$$rn rn $$ from Mr Lee 's only enough for 2 yrs so this second time ( also last time )she needs 80yrs ( smart sexy girl !!!)rn rn Q: Why did Park Si Hoo apply for the case to be transferred to Gangnam Police Station? (ultimately rejected by Western Police Station.) It has been said Park Si Hoo was hoping to receive favorable treatment from Gangnam Police Station.rn rn K: Western Police Station scheduled Sihoo’s attendance for Feb. 24, but Sihoo was just changing to his new law firm PURME who needed time to familiarize themselves with the case and to investigate the incident. Western Police Station in fact only mailed Attendance Notice to Sihoo once and only one. Prior to that, they never called Sihoo directly by phone. The police said they did not have Sihoo’s contact number, so they called Sihoo’s former management company to ask Sihoo to attend the investigation, and Sihoo only heard about it from his former management company. It does not make sense for the police to contact Sihoo’s former management company representative Hwang. Sihoo applied to transfer the police station on the advice of PURME. A’s lawyer used to work at Western District Prosecutors’ Office with jurisdiction over the Western Police Station, and this fact caused some anxiety.rn rn For sure Mr Hwang is the director of this case even he said only 5 minutes + 2000%rn rn Western Police 's mistake was leaking information too early about PSH because of Mr Hwangrn

first time read about this scandal, i think "oh my God, how come handsome hallyu star rape a girl..!!", then after few days, " is this really rape?", and now i think, "she wants money but he didnt give her after sex and thats why she sued him and will ask a lots of money". well, the point isnt have sex at the first date but this is rape or not.rn

Both of them deserve it. Park is sleeping with a girl who he just met, which means he probably does this several times before, he's the type of guy who would sleep with girls whenever he has the chance. The girl A is also the typical partying girl who goes out to clubs every night, seeking for some "fun" nights. She knew what was coming, and just tried to ruin the guy who slept with her but didn't provide her what she wanted (i.e. money).

they both liked each other enough to have consensual sex... it's either she's having delusions of love or have been coerced by B to sue for money.

After reading this summary, it shows that this case is still fuzzy and gray. The only thing I am curious about is why an order hasn't been issued in this investigation that refrains parties and witnesses related to this case not to say anything to the media. It seems that the media and the witnesses in this case are taking advantage of this unfortunate situation for publicity and ratings purposes, which in turn does not help either Miss A or PSH with their claims.

thetimeisright

I think some people have trouble understanding that there is nothing wrong with having sex on the first date...as long as both parties consent. Even if the girl was drunk off her ass , there is something called blacking out. Lets say that PSH made the first move and kissed her. Miss A could have easily just kissed him back and PSH would have taken that as a "yes" and continued on... alcohol makes ppl do things they normally wouldnt do and while she blacked out she couldve easily just gave in to PSHs advances. Having drunk sex while blacking out cant be considered rape unless PSH somehow purposely drugged her or something of that sort. I think younger or super conservative people may give PSH shit for being so "ungentlemanly" for having sex with a girl he just met or whatever, but in the real world, this happens quite frequently between two adults. I don't there's any point in looking down on his sense of morals. If anything, I feel that the key issue is whether he purposefully put her into that unconscious state. i say what is most likely is the girl had too much to drink... which is her fault . i mean i agree PSH is really dumb for even letting this happen but i'm sure hes not dumb enough to have drugged her knowing that its very easy to get caught....

I was right but PSH is innocent victim, fight Shi Hoo fans are with you and the future take care whom you trust, today money is important as the respect or love, the hurt is very easy, but to do good and to keep a secret is very, very difficult.

It echoes my exact sentiments. If he truly likes her, wouldn't he want to show his perfect self and make a good impression and sent her back to her house when she is drunk ? He has every intention of having sex with her that night, with or without her consent (Isn't that the reason why he brought her back to his house ?). I think he assumed that she would be willing to sleep with him (well, with his celebrity status, he thought most girls would be willing). But his assumption is wrong. I believe the girl didn't give her consent that is why she cry rape. To PSH, it is not rape because he thought the girl is willing but to the girl it is rape because she didn't give her consent.

It is so sad that no matter what the outcome is, everyone who is involved loses and nobody comes out a winner. PSH's career is taking a dive and may never recover. Miss A's dream of becoming a star is doomed also.

She doesn't have to be unconscious to need to be carried. I merely stated that she couldn't have made a sober decision if she needed to be carried. I'm assuming that both Park and A drank some amount of alcohol, however little or much.

innocent or guilty, PSH's name/image has been tarnished. sure, he's a great actor but he's going to have to take a break because a lot of people have already formed an opinion on him. when people do a search, this incident will always stick to him. sad but true.

Therefore, consent to anything while drunk shouldn't be considered consent.

That bitchh thinks she can get fame & money for this rape case. I find it ridiculous! At least PSH is man enough to admit that he had sex with her. It was reported that they didn't even order much drinks too. If that bitchh claimed that she was drunk she should've known her limit. Now, that everyone knows she's a slut, she just want the world to sympathize her as a rape victim instead. Fuckk bitchh, get real.

If that list of text messages that was revealed the other day is the complete conversation then it sounds very much like PSH is been set up. Ive had friends who live daily with the horrible reality of rape, and also friends who have drunk too much slept with someone in a drunken one night stand and the next day while sobering up thought "ooh I really shouldnt have done that". There is a world of difference between the two, and no amount of PC correctness will ever convince me that with two drunken adults it should be the mans responsibility to not have sex. If one person is sober and the other drunk there is a claim for been unable to make an informed decision to due diminished responsibility, but from what I read in these texts there was no concept of her being a forced or unwilling participant, and all the parties say they drank too much. He said/ she said .....
