Kim Gun Mo Issues Statement Denying Sexual Assault Allegations + Sues Accuser
Kim Gun Mo has denied the allegations of sexual assault made against him and is filing a criminal complaint against his accuser.
On December 6, singer Kim Gun Mo was accused of sexual assault by a woman who took part in an interview on a YouTube channel created by lawyer Kang Yong Suk. Later, another woman came forward to accuse Kim Gun Mo of physically assaulting her, as a way of giving support to the first woman’s claims.
On December 13, Kim Gun Mo’s agency issued the following statement:
First, we are very apologetic for causing concern to the many people who love Kim Gun Mo.
On December 9, 2019, lawyer Kang Yong Suk acted on behalf of the adult entertainment establishment hostess Kim, who claims she is a victim, and filed a criminal complaint against Kim Gun Mo for rape.
Kim Gun Mo does not know the woman mentioned above at all or anything about harm done to her, and so he planned to respond after receiving the contents of the criminal complaint. However, the truth was distorted due to the malicious YouTube broadcast of lawyer Kang Yong Suk and others. He can no longer stand by as many people accept lies as the truth, and so he is filing a criminal complaint.
Today (December 13), he is filing a criminal complaint with the Gangnam Police Station against Kim for false accusations and violation of the Act on Promotion of Information and Communications Network Utilization and Information Protection, etc., after she spread lies in a YouTube broadcast, harmed Kim Gun Mo’s reputation, and filed a criminal complaint based on false information to the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office.
Kim has disparaged Kim Gun Mo’s 27-year career in the entertainment industry with malicious intent and is spreading lies. Kim Gun Mo can no longer ignore how many people have been disappointed because of her actions, and that is why he is filing this criminal complaint.
True cases of ‘Me Too’ have to be protected, but false ‘Me Too’ that is disguised as ‘Me Too,’ as well as ‘Me Too phishing,’ have to be eliminated.
– The woman who claims to be a victim went on a YouTube broadcast as a hostess (this is the description used in lawyer Kang Yong Suk’s press release) who works at an adult entertainment establishment, and she used a mention of Kim Gun Mo’s preferences that the public is well aware of [his Batman shirt] and fabricated lies while acting as though she had gathered up the courage to expose the truth.
– However, through investigation it will be found without a doubt that her claims are false.
We once again apologize for causing concern. We will sincerely take part in the upcoming investigation so that the truth may come to light.
