3rd accuser alleges sexual assault by ParkAnother accusation of sexual assault has been filed against singer-actor Park Yoo-chun on Friday afternoon.
Korean media outlet YTN reported that Park is being accused of sexual assault by a woman who is the third alleged victim to come forward in recent days.
Many observers expressed outrage toward the celebrity when it was confirmed that the second woman, who accused Park of sexual assault on Thursday, had called 112 to file the claim in December, the day that the alleged victim says the incident occurred.
She, however, dropped the accusation after 40 minutes and wrote a statement saying she does not want the assailant to be charged.
“The accuser called 112 at around 3:25 a.m. on Dec. 17, claiming that she had been sexually assaulted,” the Gangnam Police Precinct said.
The police have created a task force to investigate the possible sexual assault cases that the TV personality may have been involved in.
Due to these recent incidents, Park, a member of the K-pop trio JYJ, has faced severe criticism from the public and fans.
A fan club of the group, DC Inside JYJ’s Gallery, posted an official statement regarding its support for JYJ and Park on Friday. The club said that as of Friday, it will no longer support Park and will only support the other two members of the group, Kim Jae-joong and Kim Jun-su.
