Ms. Oh, the woman who was found to have falsely accused actor Lee Jin Wook of sexual assault last year, has been sentenced to jail.

At the conclusion of her third trial in court on May 17, she was sentenced to 2 years in prison after being found guilty of filing false charges against Lee Jin Wook. The police stated, "The damage to the victim (Lee Jin Wook) is large, and the nature of the incident violates the serious offense of sexual assault."

Ms. Oh also said in her final statement, "It was my fault for not screaming or resisting, but I was scared. Even if the same situation arose, I think the same thing would happen." Previously, there were reports Ms. Oh had confessed to making false charges, which her lawyer denied.

Her sentencing will be held on June 14.

    Not talking about this case at all, I'm talking in general.. the number of rapes in South Korea and the number that go unreported, and the gender gap and the aggressive stances men take towards women... as well as how business works, a money making asset is always protected, and the way someone who believes they have power acts in Korea (from fame or money)... I would not be surprised if a number of sexual assaults actually were true but the female lost the case in the judicial system.

    I'm not sure whether or not convicting people for something like this is helpful to those who are fearful to come forward because they are scared they won't be believed.

    And what about the people whose lives and career they ruin because they make false claims? This doesn't seem to be the first time for her either.

    Only a small percentage of those who report a sexual assault turn out to be falsely claimed. Like 1%. And yeah that's terrible, damage that can't be undone for the other person. I'm not denying that. But, like I said, it would be horrifying if you couldn't prove your just claims that someone acted against you. It's a risk. It'd deter anyone from stepping forward.

    this is a case where the accusation was proven to be false. If something actually did happen then it would not be possible to prove a false accusation. If you have evidence of wrongdoing you can go to court and be assured that a judge will convict the perp. Innocent until proven guilty. Whether or not you are "believed" has little to do with any of this.

    Okay. But I wasn't specifically talking about the facts of this case. I was stating that I don't agree that someone should be convicted for accusing someone as this person was because mistakes are always made and victims could then be punished for coming forward. It deters and that's not a good thing. Also, it is possible for claims that were 'proven' false to turn out to be true.

    the victim here is Lee Jin Wook. He has suffered a provable and determinable amount of financial and emotional damage because of the defamation caused by some person making claims about things he never did.

    Like the article says, making false accusations makes it harder for actual victims to come forward. So I think false accusations should be severely punished, ideally as much as the actual crime they claim to be a victim of. We're talking about consciously and deliberately damaging a person through use of the court of justice. That's a very serious abuse of tax payer money and public services.

    If you're the victim of a crime, and you want to seek justice you would never think about abusing the courts and manipulating lawyers and the like to bring someone down.

    I understand what you're saying but I disagree that people should be sentenced. If you're found to be making false claims they mustn't be in the the right headspace psychological. Surely it's medical help to deal with their problems rather than just heading straight to jail.

    but this person knowingly made a false accusation with the express purpose of causing financial and emotional damage to the victim. That is no different from fraud and mental abuse. Those are very serious offenses. You are saying that those who commit such heinous crimes should not face any consequences. That's pretty alarming....

    She's reiterated her statement that he abused. It was proven to be false by the courts. Okay, yeah. But she is maintaining her innocence. Either she needs help, which is more likely, or there has been a great injustice.

    I agree with you. Rape cases are very sensitive in a way that it's a he says she says case. We'll never know 100% if she was sexually assaulted or not. There is this stigma that a person can't be sexually assaulted if they are in a relationship with a person, which is WRONG. Most cases happen within families, friendships and or partners. I find this case shows an extreme message to rape victims that if they report to the police, they will get punished. Rape is one of the few crimes where we tend to blame the victim. Whether she did or did not lie, that doesn't hide the fact that many rape victims will be discouraged to go up against their offender especially if they are a celebrity, or someone of a higher power.

    we know because she admitted she was not raped... i don't understand you guys at all.... the only crime here is defamation. Not rape.

    She was just a pump and dump to Lee Jin Wook. Apparently she couldn’t handle that fact as she probably thought that LJW views her as the ’’love of his life’’ so she went to a desperate extent. That said, this fucker LJW needs to control his dick or go to girls who offer services for money. He shouldn’t fuck around with completely random girls, or he’ll end up like this

    So? Married men also fuck around with their reckless dicks. Prime example is Uhm Tae Woong, who went to look for it in a massage parlor. Dumbass

    He’s not guilty of rape according to court, but he still fucked her.... so she was most likely just a regular pump and dump :)
