“Madam Jung” Denies Yang Hyun Suk Mediated Prostitution Services
Last month, MBC’s investigative journalism program “Straight” aired an episode about Yang Hyun Suk’s alleged involvement in soliciting prostitutes. In July 2014, Yang Hyun Suk and PSY reportedly met with wealthy Southeast Asian investors at an upscale restaurant in Gangnam, and around 10 adult entertainment workers were brought to the dinner by a woman referred to as Madam Jung. The report stated that sexual services were provided to these foreign investors.
On June 18, Yonhap News reported that the Provincial Special Detective Division of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency recently called in Madam Jung for witness questioning. Madam Jung reportedly admitted that a number of women had attended the dinner, but she denied that prostitution had taken place.
The police are looking into the identities of the women that were brought to the dinner and whether or not they had provided sexual services in exchange for compensation.
The statute of limitations, which defines the time period within which prosecution must begin for a case, leaves approximately a month of time for this case to be investigated. Regarding this, the police stated, “The statute of limitations is something to be discussed in the future. First, we must confirm the facts. The priority is to quickly confirm the facts that were reported in the media.”
