Six male trainees, including some from 'Produce 101' season 2, have sued their label CEO.
The six trainees have filed a sexual assault suit against 'A', the CEO of their label, and 'B', an investor in the company, to the Seoul Central Police District on the 18th. Ten trainees, including the 6 in the lawsuit, had performances for about a month in Japan. On September 28, 2018, the trainees had dinner with the CEO at a sushi restaurant in Tokyo. At the dinner, 'A' and 'B' felt the trainees' bodies up.
There are trainees that were on 'Produce 101' season 2. While not victims, 2 underage boys were also present at the dinner. 'A' is the CEO of the company, and 'B' is the wife of a chairman, and have power over the boys. The suit claims that 'A' and 'B' used their position to force the boys into being touched. The boys are currently receiving therapy and have been scared of a second assault.
'A' and 'B' have currently denied all charges.
