Sexual assault charges against Uhm Tae Woong have been dropped, but he is being charged with prostitution, which is illegal in Korea. 


Channel A reported on October 8 that Uhm Tae Woong has been acquitted of all sexual assault charges. However, he will be handed over to the prosecution investigators for prostitution charges. According to Channel A, the massage parlor Uhm Tae Woong visited has been practicing prostitution.

Earlier last month, Uhm Tae Woong was interviewed by the police after a woman in her 30's brought charges against the actor. She claimed that Uhm Tae Woong raped her back in January while she was working at the massage parlor.


To the accusations, Uhm Tae Woong's publicists have insisted that there was no rape and no prostitution, and that the actor will cooperate with the investigations.

    So just because the massage parlor is practicing prostitution that must mean he also got that service? What if he just got a regular massage? Did he know it was one? Interesting interesting. Cause i know where i am from, even if a massage parlor do those types of services they also do regular services to keep up appearances. Its still investigating so he isnt guilty or innocent. Guess we will see.

    This children is what oppa does. This is not unusual for an adult Korean male to visit a prostitute on a regular basis. A recent study of Korean males in their 30's and 40's found that 46% did not even believe that visiting a prostitute is cheating because prostitution is so accepted and widespread. There are statistics on this if you care to look them up. The fantasy men you see in dramas don't exist.
