Sexual assault claims against Yoochun reportedly withdrawn + C-JeS responds

JYJ, Yoochun
The recent sexual assault allegations against JYJ's Yoochun have reportedly been withdrawn after 4 days.

On June 14, Ms. Lee's boyfriend spoke to Sports Donga, stating, "We submitted a document to withdraw the lawsuit around 6:30PM today at Seoul Kangnam's Police Station. Ms. Lee was drunk, and an accident occurred. On the day of the accident, I got really angry, and we ended up filing the charges. However, it's our mistake for not looking into what happened before and after the situation, and we withdrew our suit."

He continued, "At the time, I didn't want outsiders to know about the filing, but the situation got out of control when it was reported. Ms. Lee is currently in a state of shock, and there was too much damage to the other side."

C-JeS Entertainment responded in an official statement, "Yoochun has not received a notification from the police concerning the accusations filed or that they were withdrawn. As stated yesterday, the accusations were one-sided claims that were not confirmed. We've stated again and again that Yoochun should not be under suspicion, and due to the early reports, he's suffered a lot of damage to his name."

Despite reports of the withdrawal and statements by Ms. Lee's boyfriend, other sources are reporting that Ms. Lee has not dropped her suit against Yoochun.

As previously reported, adult entertainment bar employee Ms. Lee accused Yoochun of committing sexual assault on June 4.According to the police, she claimed she had turned Yoochun down at a bathroom in a nightlife bar located in Gangnam, but he proceeded to sexually assault her. A week later, on June 10, she reported this to the police.

Stay tuned for updates.
