I wasn't a huge fan but I thought his music was comforting. I think he's the one I'm most disappointed in right now. Another day might bring a new disappointment I"m sure. I keep wondering are the victims getting help in these cases and I guess in my mind I was thinking only Korean victims but this could be world wide. These men were travelling all over the world on trips and concert tours. Who were they taking random body part pics of in public or possibly of fans. And a few fans might have felt enamored enough to sleep with one of these guys then got a pic/video done.

No other choice. In a way I'm glad that this is happening. I don't want a witch hunt where just a rumor gets a person banned but real evidence yes. It would have slowed down people like R. Kelly and Bill Cosby when they had so many early charges if this had been back years ago in the U.S.
