After two days of media reports going back and forth on JYJ Yoochun's sexual assault claim case, C-JeS Entertainment has released an official statement on June 15.

The label wrote: 

Hello, this is C-JeS Entertainment. 

Since the first sexual assault claim filed this past June 13, we have continually received reports regarding the claim, including the most recent news of the claim's official withdrawal, from news outlets, not from the police. 

As a manager, I know that a celebrity is a job in which one receives love from the public, and thus we must comply with the media's right to know about celebrities' lives, including personal situations. Even through several instances in which such circumstances were used unfairly to cause threats and false speculations to arise, we thought these were parts [of being a celebrity] we had to endure. 

But a serious crime investigation is different. This sexual assault claim case was reported without any prior confirmation from police officials simply due to the fact that it involved a Hallyu star, and since that day, [Yoochun] has been labeled as a criminal. Afterward, [Yoochun] began being tried not by official police investigations, but by the media through a series of 'don't ask truths, or maybe not' types of news reports. But because we have decided that just because we have been accused as a suspect in the case, we have no right to begin rambling about our innocence, we have stated that the media focus on official statements from police. 

Before we issue any statement about the accuser's withdrawal of the claim, we appeal to news outlets. Please put official police statements first when reporting further on the case, and take care and caution, as a case like this has the potential to move one's life left and right. When the first report was released on June 13, no police investigation had been launched yet, and an official claim statement was omitted. But after that, reports making false speculations flooded the media, and we have faced defamation and libel from which we cannot recover, in just one day. We believe that the opponent in this case is not the accuser, but the misleading news outlet reports. 

As we've previously announced, we have yet to receive any official statements from the police, and plan to wait on word from their side. We also plan to comply with any further investigation the police may request in order to prove Yoochun's innocence. 

From here on, we have no intention to reveal our perspective on the case through the media and will come forward only when police have made their statement. 

Thank you.

Even after police confirmed that Ms. Lee has withdrawn her sexual assault claim against Yoochun, the idol still faces a myriad of hardships - from the possibility of a continued investigation, to serious defamation of his name, the public's eyes, and more.

DEAR GOD, Why is there so much negativity & hate in people's mind & heart?? What goes around, comes around. The negativity/hate you sent out into this universe will engulf your life. You have to pay for your negativity. The moment you send hate, you are bringing your soul energy level down down down. Next time if something bad happens to you, just remember it's because of your negativity. It's good to follow news but DON'T INDULGE in gossip, slander, judging & hate. If you support him, comment "I support him". If you don't support him, comment "I wish the truth will surface soon". Don't prolong the discussion unnecessarily and waste yours & others time. Life is simple, don't complicate it unnecessarily. Live & let live, don't rub your opinions on others & don't think you're right either. I suggest you all start reading philosophy & expand your mind towards love & positivity rather than wasting your time in dissing people/celebrities.

The news' job is to report. Don't know why they can't do that. Freedom of the press. Don't be mad that the news reports. Be mad if the claim is truly false.

Bella_Li meganeve18 Wednesday, June 15, 2016

media can be really scary, you know :)

meganeve18 Bella_Li Wednesday, June 15, 2016

True! But at the same time, I don't see why they're angry that the media reported facts.

bangeryun94 meganeve18 Wednesday, June 15, 2016

The media didn't report any facts because there were no facts to report. A man brought a pair of panties into the police station and told police his "girlfriend" had been assaulted by Yoochun. Almost immediately the woman told the police that there was no assault, that she had sex with him and she became angry because he wasn't going to continue to see her. The media though, printed all kinds of incriminating articles that basically crucified Yoochun without a speck of facts.

meganeve18 bangeryun94 Wednesday, June 15, 2016

I didn't see any of that in these articles, so of course, I didn't know that.

Bella_Li meganeve18 Thursday, June 16, 2016

Media isn't always telling the truth. It's like your best friend hearing something from someone else and they "report" it to you, but does it mean it's a fact? Not always. That's why I said it's scary, because people believes it :)

meganeve18 Bella_Li Thursday, June 16, 2016

Well, I understand that they don't always report fact, but like it's their job to say what they've been told, if that's the case.

shizun Wednesday, June 15, 2016

That is exactly what I said when the news came to surface. Your image won't be the same even if you are proved inocent. Rumors and media don't let it be that way, sadly. And this is just because he is an idol. :(

C-JeS is a very good company, no winder a lot of big stars choose them. Anyway, JYJ really got the bad part of k-ent in their careers... super crazy sasaeng and antifans, SM cause, disbandment, ban from big3, zero privacy in their own houses, diffamatory scandals and now this, which, if proven to be false, could have endec yoochun's career and make him a criminal. I would totally be pissed with "the public". They can be superstars and super rich, but if they have to risk something every day, it's not a hood life. I pity them.

kinnin Wednesday, June 15, 2016

umm good job c jes.  of course the police will say, case received, case dropped.  does that mean you didn't do anything wrong?  your suitcases of money dropped the issue.  t.i.k. > this is korea.  duh.

Media can ruin your life ...

chelamoer Wednesday, June 15, 2016

As weird as it sounds, I am glad the story was reported. Yoochun will take aome time to bounce back, but think about this: it was an interesting social experiment. You had people who came out swinging with "oppa didn't so it," slut-shaming, victim blaming, and all sorts of comments. It became clear why rape culture exists. Plus, we got to see possible corruption, and how lies can damage how people view legit rape cases. All the ugliness and everything wrong with society came out the past few days!

bassbambi chelamoer Wednesday, June 15, 2016

I agree, i also found it very intreating how thez kind of protected the victim. though it makes me wonder if the claims at some point where true but they found a way to make her drop the case, and there fore there "protect" her now. i mean they wrote it was the medias fault. anyway could of course just be the translation how ever this is probably one of the best manager statements i have ever read. very straight foreward and pleasing . it doesnmt mather which side you were at after reading this you feel satiefied and kind of calmed

Media these days show less and fewer ethics regarding their journalism practices.

Maggie Wednesday, June 15, 2016

The statement is a whole bunch of nothing. The agency is neutered by Yoochun's actions. They can't confirm or deny anything about anything.

tutaste Maggie Wednesday, June 15, 2016

No, They are saying, we are Yoochuns side and want police investigation to prove his innocence, so they can sue her and those media outlet for this bullshit.

Maggie tutaste Wednesday, June 15, 2016

But that's not the public wants to hear. Does it? We just want to know the truth tbh.

ceeejpri Maggie Wednesday, June 15, 2016

That's why they wanted the police to continue investigating so that people like you would know the truth

myfirstwasmblaq Maggie Wednesday, June 15, 2016

People are never going to believe the agency. That is why the agency said to print only what comes from the police, not rumors and guesses.

Nanazayn Wednesday, June 15, 2016

And this people is how a company should be. Set things straight and protect the artist instead of just apologizing.
