A current girl group member Ms. Shin (27) and her label CEO Mr. Lee (38) are under investigation for sexual harassment.
According to Seoul's Southern Regional Police Department, Mr. Lee called a new girl group trainee into his room and requested her to take off her clothes on April 7 of this year. He also reportedly gave an explanation, claiming the actions were necessary as she needs to learn how to sell sex for when she becomes a celebrity.
Ms. Shin also aided in the process by agreeing with Mr. Lee, even taking off her clothes first and laying down on the bed.
As a result, Mr. Lee and Ms. Shin were arrested for harassment. However, Ms. Shin was soon dismissed for lack of motive. The investigation is still ongoing with Mr. Lee.
