A famous entertainment agency CEO has received a prison sentence of five years.
After being charged with habitual sexual assault, CEO 'Lee' has been confirmed to serve prison time, in addition to an 80-hour therapy program on sexual assault. Furthermore, the CEO would be publicly labeled for sexual crimes over the next 7 years, and will be prohibited from working for institutions related to underage persons for 10 years.
For several years, the CEO had scammed and sexually assaulted the agency's trainees with the fake promise of guaranteeing them drama roles. Afterwards, Lee had asked each trainee to pay over 200 thousand KRW for an exclusive contract. Ultimately, Lee was charged with both fraud and assault.
