Kim Gun Mo Withdraws Defamation Lawsuit Against Woman Who Accused Him Of Physical Assault
On May 11, the Seoul Gangnam Police Station shared that in late April, they received a notice from Kim Gun Mo’s representatives stating that they were withdrawing the charges of defamation. The case had been transferred from the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office, and on May 7 the investigation records were sent to the prosecutors’ office under “no authority to indictment.”
Kim Gun Mo has not stated the reason why he has withdrawn his criminal complaint, and no statement has been released by his representatives.
After a woman last December accused Kim Gun Mo of sexually assaulting her, another woman came forward to support her claims by saying that she had been physically assaulted by Kim Gun Mo. She stated that this had happened while she was working at an adult entertainment establishment in January 2007, and she said that she had been intimidated by Kim Gun Mo and the business owner into not reporting the assault to the police.
In January, Kim Gun Mo filed a criminal complaint against the woman for defamation, which has now been withdrawn. He also filed a criminal complaint against the woman who initially filed a complaint against him for allegedly sexual assaulting her, with his complaint being for defamation and false accusations.
Kim Gun Mo was forwarded to prosecutors in March under recommendation of indictment for the suspicions of sexual assault.
