Police to continue to investigate Minwoo for sexual harassment despite alleged victims withdrawing complaints

AKP STAFF

Police have announced they'll be continuing their investigation into Shinhwa Minwoo's sexual harassment allegations.

On July 3, the Seoul Gangnam Police told media outlets, "It's true the official complaints filed about Minwoo's sexual harassment have been withdrawn. However, we'll continue to investigate the case based on the Act on Special Cases Concerning the Punishment of Sexual Crimes. Details including the date of his questioning are undecided, and we're currently deciding on the schedule."

As previously reported, Minwoo is accused of forcibly kissing and groping two women without consent at a bar on June 29 KST. His agency stated, "There was a small misunderstanding at the drinking party caused by Lee Minwoo mistaking the victim for another person. The issue was resolved through dialogue and the case dropped."

Stay tuned for updates.

Oh wow so they decided to be a hero now? While the case of the infamous Mr. Jung Joon Young back in 2016 was flushed down the drain faster than a lightning. Oh well law is law, I guess? But shouldn't they have done this too back then? Anyways, if the police's reason to investigate further is from the purest of their heart then I support it, if this man really forcibly kissed and groped these women then he should be punished.

I'm happy to see that the police investigation will be continuing, but if there's no CCTV footage of the event, this case will go absolutely nowhere, seeing as officially there are no victims either. It'll likely be resolved in the same way as Onew's case, and in a few months time Minwoo will be able to get back to work just fine.
