According to a rep from the Western Yongin Police Station on January 7, "Lee Tae Gon's face was hit a lot. The other parties are claiming it was assault, so we are conducting an investigation. It seems there was an argument with so-called fans. There was a fight, and only Lee Tae Gon was hit. The others involved were drunk and returned home, and Lee Tae Gon went to receive treatment. The other parties involved are saying both sides exchanged blows, but we need to investigate whether Lee Tae Gon acted in self-defense." The rep also mentioned it appeared only Lee Tae Gon suffered injuries.
Lee Tae Gon's agency has also spoken up on the matter, saying, "He went to the police station to identify himself as a victim. Lee Tae Gon was attacked by two men, and he's receiving treatment for injuries to his face."
Some reports state that Lee Tae Gon was assaulted by two men in their thirties after he refused to shake their hands and suffered a broken nose.
