The Gangnam Police Department revealed the sexual harassment case that involves SHINee’s Onew is being sent to prosecution. According to the police, Onew was accused of touching a part of a woman’s body three times at a club in Gangnam. Police arrived at the scene after receiving reports and interviewed Onew for 5 hours.


The Police is judging the claims by the woman and witnesses as credible because their stories match with the scenes captured on the CCTV. However, Onew and the woman were not captured on the CCTV as they happened to be in a blind spot.

SM Entertainment reported that the woman dropped all charges against Onew. However, the police plan to further investigate the case. A police official stated, "The victim has suffered from the media and (netizens') investigation of her identity. She has signed the papers to drop the charges due to SM's request, however, she testified the fact that she has been sexually harassed does not change."
