Shinhwa’s Minwoo Cleared Of Sexual Harassment Charges
Shinhwa’s Minwoo has been cleared of the sexual harassment suspicions that arose earlier this year.
On July 2, Minwoo was booked on suspicions of sexually harassing two women at a gathering on the morning of June 29. The following day, his agency Liveworks Company stated 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 It was later confirmed that the complaints were withdrawn.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, because an indecent act by compulsion is indictable without a complaint by law, the police continued to investigate the case and forwarded Minwoo to the prosecution.
Several months later, on December 31, Liveworks Company released a statement explaining that Minwoo had been cleared of the suspicions.
Hello. This is Liveworks Company.
Regarding the incident related to our singer Lee Min Woo that was reported through the media in July, the prosecution recently closed the investigation with the conclusion that no suspicions were found.
We once again relay our apologies for causing great concern to fans. Thank you.
