The JYJ member has been embroiled in a controversy with sexual assault claims dating back to 2014. Four employees of an adult entertainment bar filed formal complaints against the celebrity for assaulting them in restrooms, but after 3 weeks of investigation, police have cleared him of charges in the cases of the first two women to file suits against him.
Police found that though Yoochun did “shock and embarrass” the women, there was lack of evidence of use of force or threats. In the case of the first accuser, her boyfriend and cousin were found to have blackmailed Yoochun for 100 million Won ($86,568 USD) in exchange for keeping quiet about his sexual relations with the woman.
Police plan to file arrest warrants for blackmail against the three involved.
