Park Yoochun Denies Recent Accusations Made By Agency And YouTuber + Shares Ongoing Plans For Legal Action
Park Yoochun has denied the recent accusations made against him by his agency Re:Cielo.
Earlier this month, a Japanese media outlet reported that Park Yoochun had signed with a new agency in Japan because Re:Cielo had barely paid him during the two years he worked with them. Following reports, Re:Cielo released an official statement to deny the claims and announce their plans to take legal action against Park Yoochun for contract violation and defamation.
On August 24, Park Yoochun uploaded a statement on his official Japanese fan site. The full statement is translated below:
Hello. This is Yoochun.
I’ve turned over a new leaf, and I’m doing my best to prepare for the future.
I knew that the slanderous reports, which aren’t true at all and have no grounds, have been bothering everyone who believes in me for the past few days, and if this is something I need to do in order to move on to the future with the past behind me, I think it’s something I should do confidently without wavering or avoiding it no matter how unfair or unjust it is.
A few months ago, I learned an unimaginably shocking truth about the CEO of Re:Cielo, and I tried to listen to an explanation on this, but I couldn’t contact him and eventually decided to carry out civil and criminal legal proceedings against the CEO.
Regarding this, the other party didn’t even explain and instead mobilized a few reporters to raise criminal charges such as fraud and embezzlement against me, and they’re responding by busily wiring all kinds of slanderous reports and information that aren’t true, but none of the criminal charges raised by the other party are true at all.
In particular, the claim made by a YouTuber on August 22, 2021 that I contacted a fan personally and sexually harassed her is not true at all, and this is another case of groundless slander. Since this is a very deliberate personal attack, I’ll be preparing to make a legal response.
Currently, I’ve already submitted to the law firm all of the evidence material that proves the wrongful civil and criminal cases regarding Re:Cielo’s CEO, and that includes evidence material that can set right the false suspicion the other party raised against me.
However, since those particular cases all pertain to a very serious crime, I will not reveal them so that the investigative agencies can investigate properly and take proper action. I believe that the injustice I experienced due to the other party and the false slander against me will all be revealed soon.
All the future processes will take some time, but I’ll transparently share everything for the all the fans who support me. I sincerely thank you for not giving up and believing me until the end.
