Former B.A.P member Himchan denies sexual assault accusation during 1st court hearing

AKP STAFF

On July 12, the first court hearing involving former B.A.P member Himchan and his charges of sexual assaulting a woman in her twenties took place at Seoul's District Court in Seocho-gu. 

On this day, Himchan's legal representative denied the sexual assault accusations against his defendant, stating, "There was mutual attraction between the two people. There may not have been direct consent, but consent was implied. It is not forced sexual assault." The legal rep also added, "It's true that there was upper body skin contact and kissing with the victim, but nothing more." 

A second hearing for the ongoing case is scheduled to take place on August 16. This second hearing will also involve witness testimonies. 

Meanwhile, Himchan is currently facing charges for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman at a pension in Namyang back on July 24, 2018, during a drinking gathering.

I'm totally against famous or once-famous pricks that think they're granted an automatic free-pass with every woman but, ACCORDING TO THE DISCLOSED INFO (a party of six drinking together in a guesthouse, a kiss and a caress, no coercion), I don't think this case should be in court.

He may have misunderstood the situation or she may have changed her intentions, but I guess a "sorry, that's not it, I'm off" should have been sufficient.

Sexual assault is a totally different story.
