Park Yoochun Reportedly Sued By Woman Who Accused Him Of Sexual Assault In 2016
JYJ’s Park Yoochun is reportedly facing a lawsuit.
According to an exclusive report by YTN Star on March 18, a source from the legal circle revealed that a person known as “S” filed a lawsuit for damages against Park Yoochun on December 13, 2018.
The report further stated that “S” asked for compensation of 100 million won (approximately $88,088) and also requested that an officetel owned by Park Yoochun in the neighborhood of Samseong be seized. The request was approved by the court on March 12.
“S” is the second woman to accuse Park Yoochun of sexual assault in 2016 by arguing that the singer sexually assaulted her in December 2015. At the time, Park Yoochun’s agency responded by announcing that Park Yoochun would retire if he was found guilty of committing any crime. The agency also sued “S” and three other individuals with similar claims for making false accusations. “S” received a final ruling of not guilty in 2017, and Park Yoochun was also cleared of the allegations made by all four individuals in 2017.
The lawyer of “S” said, “‘S’ delayed submitting her civil suit as much as possible because she was waiting for Park Yoochun to willingly apologize and reflect [on his wrongdoings]. However, she ended up processing the lawsuit because [Park Yoochun] did not show apologetic behavior.”
C-JeS Entertainment responded, “We are checking the situation with a lawyer. After confirming the facts, we will deliver our statement.”
In February, Park Yoochun made his return to the industry by releasing a solo mini album for the first time in three years.
