Shinhwa’s Minwoo’s Sexual Harassment Case Forwarded To Prosecution
Updated July 17 KST:
In regards to the reports below, a representative of Minwoo told outlet DongA, “We have not yet been contacted by the prosecution.” They added, “He will sincerely take part in the investigation when contacted by the prosecution.”
On July 17, the Seoul Gangnam Police Station forwarded Shinhwa’s Minwoo to the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office with a recommendation for indictment without detention. He was charged with committing an indecent act by compulsion.
Minwoo was booked on July 2 for suspicions of sexually harassing two women at a gathering on the morning of June 29. On July 3, his agency Liveworks Company released an official statement saying that it had been a misunderstanding and that the victims would be withdrawing their complaints. It was later confirmed that the complaints were withdrawn.
However, the police explained that they would continue investigating the case because an indecent act by compulsion is indictable without a complaint. They recently found CCTV footage that confirm the suspicions of indecent act by compulsion.
