Comedian Kim Ji Min shared how she reacted to JYJ Yoochun's sexual assault controversy. 


During the December 26 broadcast of 'Heard It Through the Grapevine', Yoochun's sexual assault controversy became a topic of discussion. Regarding the issue, Kim Ji Min revealed, "I was really shocked because I know Yoochun. We were actually kind of close."

She continued, "The Yoochun I know felt like a non-celebrity when I first met him. Unlike an idol star, he was easy to approach. He was simple, carefree, and easygoing. Rumors about him were also good. He's very mannerly to elders. So I was really really shocked about the sexual assault incident and even wondered if this is the Yoochun I knew."


In the summer of 2016, Yoochun was accused of sexually assaulting 5 women.

    assaulting ? you know what is assaulted right? he force you without ur willingness. but if they do the 'sex things' why would people say it as assaulted ? woahh after Kimhyunjoong 's case i really think how 'dare' womens claimed to be assaulted by artist to ruin their career and to collect some money -.-

    I'm not an anti;I love PYC ever since his TVXQ days but, how many Korean Celebrities do you know who have been able to survive a scandal like this? He didn't rape anyone but the fact that it has been proven he has been involved in a prostitution scandal will make it very hard.

    THose were all false! He is clean & been cleared of all! He is just rising in popularity now! The previous ones really did it! bt YC was only used as a bait he is a victim & all Korea is aware of that now & they started defending him! They even sent hate to this comedian after what she said! Alkp released an article abt that! check it

    I said media ""outlets" that faked truths! & Yess his agency already warned them & if if remember well it was jtbc who asked his agency abt the content of the lawsuit against them! + they have history with suing media & winning cases they won a case against dispatch back in 2012! They just won't sit without defending themselves & clearing their names they r extremely brave! & out of all the actors who were falsely accused of sexuel assault recently! Yuchun is the only one who dare to sue back the criminals! He should be respected nt the opposite

    Hmm... Even she's his closest friend, she wont know his true color. So, dont say smtg like this. If you really someone's best friend, better to just shut ur mouth. Either you'll hurt him with ur response or people will

    it seems there is a part 2 of this article... because a person who claims to know Yoochun well and be friends with him would never doubt him even before it was established it is a case of a mafia blackmailing him...

    I thought this article is incomplete. cos a person who said she is close friend of YC willl never doubt him ..shocked by the accusation but never stop at that if she says as a close friend. Well that girl is waiting jail sentence for false accusation and extortion.
