The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency informed OSEN on August 4 that for Yoochun's case, the police has requested arrest warrants for the first woman he allegedly sexually assaulted, along with the woman's boyfriend and cousin, for charges of false accusations and blackmail. 


Police stated, "We have requested arrests warrants after taking into account the seriousness of claiming false charges and blackmail as well as the possibility that [the defendants] colluded to have their testimonies coincide," adding that they "won't know whether the defendants will be charged until later that afternoon."

Yoochun claimed that the woman, her boyfriend, and her cousin, who is said to be affiliated with a gang, used the sexual assualt suit as pretext to demand 500 million KRW (~$448,895 USD), and countersued them for false charges and blackmail. 


Police confirmed that after the woman filed a lawsuit, around 100 million KRW (~$89,828 USD) was exchanged between her and Yoochun's party. 


Once the final decision is made on the arrest warrants submitted by Yoochun, police plan to take their hands off the case and forward it to prosecution.

    This is why sex assault victims stay silent rather than face trial by ordeal. False accusation of rape must subject the accuser to the equivalent sentence a convicted rapist would receive. This is not something they should lie about.

    They wouldn't have been slapped with the arrest warrant if they didn't try to suck money off of him. Notice how the other 3-4 women were left well alone, just the first one and the boyfriend were called out.

    It's sad, rather devastating what these accusations have done to him.. Even I, as a 9 year fan, was shaken by it, and I started doubting him... The things JYJ have gone through are just....
