Kim Gun Mo to continue with his 25th-anniversary concert despite sexual assault allegations

AKP STAFF

Singer Kim Gun Mo is slated to perform at his 25th-anniversary concert despite sexual assault allegations.

His representatives stated on December 9 that the concert would be continuing, saying that “for the time being, we have decided to trust our artist and continue the concert as planned.”

The popular singer was accused of improper conduct by a popular Korean Youtube channel Garo Sero Institute and is facing allegations of sexually assaulting a woman twice at his restaurant. He has since threatened legal action against the channel and is maintaining his innocence.

What do you think of this situation?

I'm thinking let the COURTS figure it out, and refrain from jumping to conclusions. How's that?

First, the concept of "innocent until proven guilty" applies to the people who will be rending a verdict in a criminal case-the jury or the judge. It's shorthand for the concept that the prosecution has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. The concept has NOTHING to do with my personal feelings about whether certain conditions lead me to believe whether someone is innocent or guilty. If I saw a video of him raping her, are you suggesting I would have to wait for a court decision before I could believe that he was guilty? Ridiculous. Second, what motive does this woman have to claim he raped her? Is it high status in Korea for a woman to say that she was raped by a celebrity? No. Did she contact him and say she was going to file charges unless he gave her money? No. So what does she get out of it, if she wasn't raped? It doesn't make sense, and when something doesn't make sense, it's usually not true (that she made up the rape). Third, why is rape the only time people attack the victim by saying it's a "he says, she says" situation? If Ms A alleges that Mr B threatened her with a knife and took all the money in her wallet, do we call it "he says, she says"?
