The saying "When it rains, it pours" has never been truer than today. Last week, news first broke out about JYJ's Yoochun sexually assaulting a young woman at an entertainer bar, and while this first victim dropped charges a few days later, three more young women have stepped up with similar claims.
The second young woman (we will name her "B" for clarification purposes) accused Yoochun of sexually assaulting her in December 2015, while the third young woman, "C", alleges the same happened to her in June 2014. Now, the fourth young woman, "D", says that she was drinking with Yoochun at a liquor bar before he took her to the bathroom and sexually assaulted her there. In her accusations, "B" said that Yoochun also prevented her from leaving before the sexual assault.
A special taskforce has been created by the police to work on these cases and more officers have been added as more women continue to step forward. Charges currrently being investigated involve sexual assault, prostitution, confinement against will, amongst others. Rumors of these women being monetarily compensated have been circling around, and if found true, could lead to more charges.
Currently, Yoochun is serving as a public service officer for his two years of military enlistment, but the public has reacted very negatively in light of these shocking news. We will continue to update you as the investigation progresses.
