The lawsuit against Uhm Tae Woong has at last come to a close.
Upon conclusion of investigations, police determined that Uhm Tae Woong was guilty of solicitation of prostitution, and was fined for 1 million won (approximately $875).
Previously, Uhm Tae Woong was sued by a woman (hereafter referred to as “A”) in July for alleged sexual assault in January this year. It was later revealed that the lawsuit was an attempt by A and the massage parlor owner to get money out of Uhm Tae Woong, as A was facing arrest for fraud. A has been booked for false accusations and blackmail, and the massage parlor owner will also be going to trial for the same charges.
