Idol Group ZEST Declared Innocent in Sexual Assault Allegations
Two women who spread false rumors about an idol member will be undergoing a criminal trial. The two have been accused of libel, and they are alleged to have written on social media that one of them, Ms. Son, has been raped by a member of the idol group ZEST. Ms. Son’s friend, Ms. Moon, helped spread the rumor by re-posting it.
The false writing contains allegations that Ms. Son was date raped this past February by a member of ZEST, whom she had been dating for a while. However, it turns out that while the two did indeed date, there was no rape. The two are said to have parted ways because of busy schedules.
