MASC’s Chibin Takes Legal Action Against ACE + Provides Additional Information To Assault Incident

After initial reports of MASC’s Chibin and ACE being involved in an assault incident, along with their individual accounts, Chibin has given an update to the legal action taken against ACE.

On August 4, Chibin posted a photo of the paperwork and a screen capture of the assault incident’s location on his Instagram.

He wrote in the caption, “Charges of the perpetrator’s one-sided assault have been accepted, so currently the prosecution’s ruling is under way. After verifying the allegations posted on the offender’s SNS, the detective who investigated the perpetrator didn’t make any clear comment on his defense, saying things like ‘The perpetrator should receive settlement money, this is really obvious.’ Instead, what’s more certain is that it was a one-sided assault.

“Also, another thing is that at the location where I suffered my assault injuries, a hill near a CU convenience store on Bongeunsa Avenue, 49 Road, Gangnam, Seoul, there are indeed countless walls on the hill. At the time, there weren’t many streetlights turned on late at night, so I wasn’t sure, but I remember through this attached photo that this was the very wall. It’s also true that he threatened me, slammed his umbrella against the wall, and then hit me two or three times.

“I would like to inform you that even until now it is not true that the perpetrator has given me any money for medical expenses. The perpetrator and I were forcibly taken apart after I had received injuries to my head and face. It’s also true that he shoved away the people who were holding me and gave a few kicks afterwards as well. The perpetrator also claimed that I had suddenly sprung at him while cursing, but that’s hard to imagine since we had an imbalanced relationship. It’s not true.

“I told him not to approach me, but he did it again using violent words and insults, and used his umbrella in the blink of an eye to strike me. It was after that the members tried to break up the fight.

“I came to talk about this again after the people who encouraged me, following the incident’s rise to the surface, were curious about what was going on. Thank you!”

현재 가해자의 일방적인 폭행상해 혐의가 인정되어 법원의 판결이 진행되는 중입니다 가해자의 SNS에 게재한 주장을 확인한 결과 가해자를 조사하신 형사님께서는 가해자에게 합의금일 거다 딱 봐도 뻔하다는 가해자를 옹호하는듯한 뉘앙스의 발언을 하지 않았으며 더욱이 확실한 것은 일방적 폭행이 맞습니다 또 하나 제가 폭행상해 피해를 받은 서울시 강남구 봉은사로 49길 CU를 지나 위치한 언덕에는 무수히 많은 담벼락이 있습니다 때는 새벽 가로등도 얼마 켜져 있지 않아 눈앞을 가려 완벽하지는 않지만 사진을 첨부한 위치 이 담벼락이 맞는 것으로 기억합니다 저에게 위협을 하며 우산을 담벼락에 내려치고 난 후 저에게 두세 번 가격한 것 또한 사실입니다. 저는 치료비와 같은 일체 금전적인 것을 현재까지도 가해자에게 받은 사실이 없음을 알려드립니다 저와 가해자 두 사람을 끌어안아 말리게 된 때는 제가 머리와 얼굴을 가격 당한 이후입니다 그 후 흥분상태에서 붙들려있는 저에게 말리는 사람들을 밀치고 난 후 발길질을 두어 번 한 것 또한 사실입니다 가해자는 제가 갑자기 욕을 하며 달려들었다는 주장을 하는데 수직적인 관계였던 것을 생각하면 상상조차 할 수 없습니다 사실이 아닙니다 말 그대로 다가오지 말라고 하였지만 가해자는 재차 다가오며 폭력적인 언행, 욕설을 하며 눈 깜짝할 사이 우산으로 내려쳤습니다 그 후 멤버들이 말린 것입니다 사건이 수면 위로 올라온 이후 격려해주셨던 분들께서 진행 상황을 궁금해하셔서 또 한 번 언급하게 되었습니다 감사합니다!
