Actor Kang Ji Hwan Arrested For Sexual Assault
Kang Ji Hwan has been arrested on charges of sexual assault. Police apprehended the actor at his home in Gwangju on July 9 at 10:50 p.m. KST.
According to reports, Kang Ji Hwan returned home with two female employees from his agency (hereafter referred to as “A” and “B”) to have more drinks following a company dinner. Later that night, he went into the room where the two women were sleeping and committed sexual assault on “A” and indecent assault on “B.”
Earlier that night at 9:41 p.m., “A” had texted a friend in Seoul and said, “I had some drinks at actor Kang Ji Hwan’s house, and now we’re trapped,” and asked her friend to report it. When the police arrived at Kang Ji Hwan’s home, “A” said that she had been sleeping when Kang Ji Hwan sexually assaulted her, leading to the actor’s arrest.
At the police station, Kang Ji Hwan said, “I remember having drinks, but I don’t remember anything after that. When I opened my eyes, I was in the room where [‘A’] was sleeping.” After a round of questioning, Kang Ji Hwan, still intoxicated, was put in holding. Police will be questioning Kang Ji Hwan again later today.
A source from the police said, “We have yet to fully investigate the matter, so other than that Kang Ji Hwan has been arrested for sexual assault, we cannot reveal anything.”
Kang Ji Hwan is currently starring in the TV Chosun drama “Joseon Survival.”
