Former The East Light Member Lee Eun Sung Testifies In 4th Trial For Abuse Case
Former The East Light member Lee Eun Sung has contradicted the statements made by Lee Seok Cheol and Lee Seung Hyun.
On June 7 at 2 p.m., the fourth hearing for the case against Media Line Entertainment’s producer Moon Young Il, CEO Kim Chang Hwan, and president Lee Jung Hyun took place at the Seoul Central District Court.
Previously, in the third trial, Lee Seok Cheol and Lee Seung Hyun’s parents underwent questioning as witnesses, as well as former The East Light member Kim Jun Wook.
During this trial, Lee Eun Sung and a Media Line employee referred to as Chae underwent witness questioning. Lee Eun Sung testified that producer Moon Young Il did not physically punish them from the beginning, and that he began the corporal punishment with the consent of the members as the members kept being disobedient.
Regarding producer Moon Young Il’s confinement and assault on Lee Seung Hyun, Lee Eun Sung said, “We were called in at the time of the incident. The atmosphere was not harsh. I didn’t see neither blood nor wounds on Lee Seung Hyun.”
Lee Eun Sung also spoke about the alleged child abuse by Kim Chang Hwan. He shared, “There were often times Kim Chang Hwan would visit while we were being scolded by Moon Young Il and stop him.” He also added that he did not hear Kim Chang Hwan telling Moon Young Il “That’s enough” or “Go easy on them.”
The abuse case of The East Light members first began last fall and is now in its fourth trial. Moon Young Il is standing trial on charges of habitual child abuse, while Kim Chang Hwan is standing trial on charges of aiding and abetting child abuse. Kim Chang Hwan has denied allegations of child abuse.
