Two of the three perpetrators involved in the sexual assault case against JYJ’s Yoochun were arrested after being charged of false accusation and blackmail. The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency demanded the arrests of the woman and her boyfriend, as well as her cousin on August 4th.
The woman and her cousin were arrested, and it is reported that they are also facing charges of destruction of evidence. This development came after Yoochun had claimed that the three were affiliated with a gang, and used the pre-existing sexual assault case to blackmail him for a total of 500 million KRW ($448,895 USD) and filed a counter-suit against them for false charges and blackmail.
Police confirmed that after the woman had filed her lawsuit, she was paid around 100 million KRW ($89,828 USD) for damages by Yoochun’s party.
