Woman Claims She Was Sexually Assaulted By Choi Jong Hoon + His Lawyer Responds
A woman has stepped forth with claims that she was drugged and raped by Choi Jong Hoon.
According to reporting on April 11, person “A” claims to have met Choi Jong Hoon in the U.S. in March 2012 and after drinking a cocktail he handed to her, she says she lost consciousness and was then sexually assaulted. According to “A,” she believes Choi Jong Hoon used the date rape drug Gamma-Hydroxybutyrate (GHB).
“A” is currently in the process of filing a complaint against Choi Jong Hoon, and she states that she gained the courage to inform people of her story and get an apology from Choi Jong Hoon after the case of hidden camera footage being filmed and uploaded to group chatrooms came to the surface.
Choi Jong Hoon’s former agency FNC Entertainment was cautious in their stance as they stated, “We have never heard of this case,” and “We have already terminated our contract with Choi Jong Hoon, and we do not believe the woman has filed the complaint yet.”
Choi Jong Hoon’s lawyer spoke up about the new allegations and said, “We filed a complaint on charges of blackmail two weeks ago to the Seoul Eastern District Prosecutor’s Office against a woman who was threatening him [Choi Jong Hoon] with false information,” and “The case was forwarded to the Seongdong Police Station, and we believe the details will be revealed in the investigation.”
They continued to state, “We spoke with Choi Jong Hoon and he stated that though he it was true that he met the woman in question in the U.S., he has no memory of raping her. Not only did he not know what GHB was, but we believe these charges were brought up based on recent events to threaten him.” When asked how the two met, the legal team responded with, “They met through an acquaintance,” and they stated they heard nothing from Choi Jong Hoon regarding any sexual intercourse between the two.
