Police are reportedly focusing their investigations on the possibility that the woman involved in Lee Jin Wook's alleged sexual assault case pressed false charges against the actor. 

Suseo Police Station, the branch of Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency (SMPA) in charge of this case, announced on July 24 that they have summoned the woman to the station on July 22 and 23 to interrogate her for a second time. 


Furthermore, Hyunjae, the law firm which was in charge of representing the woman, stated that it will "no longer serve as a legal rep" to her.

Hyunjae explained that the "difference in opinion regarding dealing with the investigation and developments of the case which led to a serious breach of trust" is what ultimately led to the decision to take its hands off the case. 


Meanwhile a police officer relayed, "We're focusing exclusively on whether or not the woman pressed false charges."

    When the police are first informed of the circumstances involving sexual assault they'll immediately leave and secure the place which the crime may have been committed. After securing the crime scene to prevent the destruction of evidence, they'll start to investigate. Usually an "interview" with the victim is held by the Police Department to attain detailed information about what actually happened. After having been informed of how the act occurred, they can then start to search for witnesses and evidence which supports the statement of the victim. When it comes to searching for witnesses there are 2 categories that the Police Department most commonly seeks. One would be family members, friend and individuals that have some kind of close relationship to the victim, as there may be a possibility of the victim having contacted one of these individuals subsequent to the occurrence of the crime and two, witnesses that may have been close-by when the crime occurred (workers, part-timers etc). Then the collection of evidence present in the crime scene will happen. They may search for and DNA test foreign strands of hair from the crime scene which can help find witnesses or lead them to the potential criminal of the sexual assault, leading them to make a background check. The possible criminal may have been a repeated offender which contributes to the case. Articles that may have been stained with blood because of resistance or something connected to the crime will be collected, as well as foreign object that doesn't belong there (buttons, torn fabric etc). All the clothing belonging to the victim from that occasion shall be submitted for testing, as well as vaginal smears and swabs. Anything that can have potentially been used in the act of sexual assault will be gathered, per the interview of the victim, like for instance bondage used to tie the victim up, weapons etc. The Police Department would also suggest that the victim undergoes a physical investigation known as rape kit. This is an importance to the investigation which some individuals prefer not to do. The physical investigation is used to collect samples of possible evidence that may be found on the body of the victim (body fluids, blood, fingernail scrapings, semen, pubic hairs etc). Most samples are then investigated separately to find traces such as DNA of the suspected criminal. These factors are all of importance when deeming something to be sexual assault.

    Police don't investigate. They take statemements, gather evidence and then send it to the prosecutor who decides whether or not to open an investigation. Apparently the police have already found ample evidence to suggest it was all a lie.

    You've totally just described what happens in the US, Canada and Great Britain. You have not, in any way, shape or form described what happens in Korea.

    I see, I believed that the process wouldn't be all too different. In any case, would you mind explaining how it is done in Korea?
