Lee Jin Wook and his agency are repudiating the claims of the woman who was allegedly sexually assaulted by the actor. 


Lee Jin Wook's agency stepped up with an official press release on July 18, explaining that it was actually the woman who showed an interest in Lee Jin Wook.

The press release reads:


"The plaintiff continues to make false statements that Lee Jin Wook assaulted her so we felt the need to expose the truth; thus, we will explain what happened. 


The plaintiff stated through a press release that she didn't take any romantic interest in Lee Jin Wook, but during an evening meal with the actor on July 12, she told him, 'I'm a big fan,' and 'I liked you for a long time,' expressing her great interest in him and trying to earn his trust. In the early morning of July 13, the plaintiff messaged the acquaintance who had introduced her to Lee Jin Wook, suggesting that they visit the newly opened franchise restaurant in Gangnam district together, and even after she parted ways with Lee Jin Wook, she continued to exchange a very normal and routine conversation with his acquaintance in good spirits. 


If [the plaintiff] was indeed sexually assaulted as her report states, she could not have acted in a manner which we described above. Additionally, we question why the plaintiff filed a report on July 14, the day right after she parted with Lee Jin Wook, and why she belatedly submitted a medical diagnosis on the night of July 17 after Lee Jin Wook sued her for false charges when earlier she'd claimed that she received medical treatment prior to filing her report. 


Lee Jin Wook grieved about the unfair situation to his lawyer on July 15 as soon as he learned of the lawsuit, and in accordance to the police investigative schedule, he appeared before the authorities on July 17 and testified everything that he has experienced exactly as it happened. 


As a public figure, Lee Jin Wook has determined to conduct himself in a more judicious manner, and wishes earnestly that through the strict ruling on this case which will reveal the plaintiff's claims as false, he will no longer be victimized with unfair charges just based on the grounds that he is a celebrity in our society."

    Why does it matter who showed interest for who? In a marital relationship, a husband can still be invicted for sexually assaulting his wife, REGARDLESS who fucking showed interest for whom when they were dating or some shit. Like wtf is this bullshit?

    Look, he only is saying that SHE is the first one to show interest, simply because her side said she showed NO interest. It has nothing to do w/justifying any assault. He's saying there WAS no assault. I have an open mind about this - she's got more evidence than some others I could name - but can we at least follow the logic here in the two opposing arguments?

    Absolutely. Domestic assault charges are VERY real and taken VERY seriously by court

    I think his choice of words about her showing interest in him first are poorly chosen, if that is in fact what he said. I'm not really believing this one.  But I'll wait until the police investigation concludes.

    These situations where they have some 'spokesperson' blather on endlessly in a statement, seem *not* so good to me. Better to just say you deny the charges, will cooperate with POLICE, and let POLICE do their job. AFTER POLICE say something about the findings of their investigation; THEN you can 'FIRE BACK' as you choose, and it seems more CREDIBLE to me.

    As an example, WOOLLIM Agency did *not* get involved in 'back and forth' verbal exchanges with the accuser of LOVELYZ member SEO JISOO. They just said "No Coment" and "Let Police do their job." AFTER POLICE reported 'no stubstance to accusations,' *then* WOOLIM AGENCY started FIRING BACK, and it was VERY EFFECTIVE, I thought.

    Well, Cjecs actually did exactly what you suggested in Yoochun's case, and it didn't really work either.. In fact, it did the complete opposite.. People just believed whatever the media said because we never heard another side to the story, most people believe the alleged victims stories except for the extreme fans.. but in Lee Jin Wook's case, there are two sides, so some people are bound to side with him... I'm not saying whether he is innocent or guilty, just that as an agency, I think they are doing the right kind of media play, cuz that's the only way to protect their celebrity..

    The hell? So if someone shows interest in you first then it's okay to sexually assault them? What the actual fuck?

    That's not what they are saying. The statement was released in response to Miss A saying that she had no romantic/otherwise interest in him when they met up, thus implying that their relations were non-consensual. LJW's side has already denied the allegations and are in no way trying to justify sexual assault.

    You're generalizing "RELATIONS". Okay, meeting up was consensual, but was physical contact? Sex?

    No I'm not, I mean sexual relations. She's saying it was non-consensual, he's saying that it was. Nobody can conclude that from her gushing, which are typical words from a fan to their bias. Hell, I would say that just to be polite even if I weren't his fan. His agency is just trying to prevent her statement from making LJW out to be a rapist who attacks random helpless women before the investigations are even concluded. They also contradict her earlier statement that they were not meeting with interest, so that the public knows to take her statements with a grain of salt. There's no reason for her to lie about being interested in him; nobody's going to conclude that means that she wants to sleep with him.

    "If [the plaintiff] was indeed sexually assaulted as her report states, she could not have acted in a manner which we described above." That's the issue. Just because I showed interest in you, makes it okay/not sexual assault, if sex was non-consensual? That's the impression I'm getting from the article. I get where you're coming from, but regardless of whether she had "romantic/otherwise interest in him when they met up". it doesn't imply their relations were consensual.

    ... Wait, there is one part of the press release of Lee Jin Wook's agency that I can't seem to honestly understand... The explanation that they gave addressing the circumstances that had occurred according to their party. Can somebody explain to me what exactly they're trying to say? Do they mean that the victim of the case couldn't have been sexually assaulted by Lee Jin Wook because of the fact that she seemed to show some kind of interest in him and since she had a casual conversation with his acquaintance in his absence?

    It is AKP Writing problem here. There is a MISSING like 'beginning quotation mark" ... So, you do NOT know where the QUOTED part begins ... or WHO is even saying it. It *sounds* like it might be the ATTORNEY or SPOKESPERSON for LEE JIN WOOK ... But you can NOT tell it from reading the AKP ARTICLE here. AKP needs to fix it.
