A former girl group member Ms. Son (26) has been sentenced to jail for falsely accusing her ex-boyfriend of rape.


Back in September of 2015, Ms. Son claimed that she was raped by her ex-boyfriend ZEST's Choi Go. However, Choi Go was found innocent of all charges in December.

According to Seoul Central District Court, Ms. Son has now been sentenced 6-month penal servitude with a 2-year probation. 


The court ruled that Ms. Son is guilty of pressing false charges while also continuing to provide false claims and defaming the character of Choi Go that also greatly damaged his image and career. 


Through an exclusive interview with Sports World, Choi Go thanked fans for staying by his side and giving him support. He also apologized to fellow ZEST members for causing harm to the group's promotions. 


Lastly, Choi Go stated, "I want to work again. I will not make a mistake like this again and I'm really going to work hard. I was so happy when I was preparing to debut and promoting as ZEST. I practiced and exercised all day so my body was tired but my heart was fulfilling. Recently, I've started practicing again. I'm working harder than I have during debut. I want to return as Choi Go who was full of energy and present an amazing stage."

    how did they determine it was a false accusation? And isn't that a little bit low for such a crime? Shouldn't she get the same as what he would've gotten if he was found guilty?

    Not only did she destroy this guy's career, she also harms other REAL cases of rape when there is so much doubt in the possible victims. Just disgusting.

    No, AOA's ex-member, Youkyung can't be even suspected. http://www.allkpop.com/article/2015/03/zests-agency-clarifies-that-the-female-idol-who-sued-for-rape-is-a-not-a-currently-promoting-idol If you read this article, they say it's a female idol that came from a disbanded group, without having even properly promoted. So, it's not AOA's case. And the 'rape case' started in 2015, but Youkyung officialy left in 2016. So, it can be the one from Chi Chi (I don't know them).

    i think this article is a good example of how also some people don't always think about it but the woman that is accusing someone of rape could also be lying. i feel like when theres an article about an ALLEGED rape then people always be jumping to conclusions. ofc most of the time it is true, but not all the time. anyway, im glad in this case that he was able to be cleared of these charges, that kinda thing really ruins peoples careers. poor guy. i hope he can really get back on his feet and help rebuild his image,etc.

    This is just one of a million cases where the "victim's part" don't stand a chance to win in such cases. I pity for those who actual are real rape victims, that girl is just another bad example of ruining chances for those who really suffer from being raped.

    Is Choi Go still in the group? Because from what I've read, he (along with Duk Sin) departed back in 2015.
