Open World Entertainment CEO Jang Seok Woo has admitted to committing crimes of sexual abuse.
If you have not followed the case up until this point, catch up here.
Kangnam Police Station reported on the morning of April 12th, ‘We arrested Mr. Jang on the suspicions of sexual harassment and sexual assault, and the total amount of female victims are six, with two of them being teens, who are underage.”
They continued, “Different from before, when he denied all of the accusations, he has now admitted to a portion of them,” and issued out a warrant of arrest.
Although specific details about the victims have not been revealed, it has been reported that among the victims were celebrity-hopefuls who had not even yet signed an official contract with the agency.
The police is reported to have acquired statements from female victims who testified that “Mr. Jang had commanded male idol group members to sexually assault us“, and is investigating the details. They stated, “This is a sex crime of a sensitive nature which we are currently in the midst of investigating, so we are approaching it with caution. The exact breakdown of the suspicions will have to wait until the investigation ends, and we cannot confirm for you everything regarding the female victims.”
It’s not clear yet exactly what he admitted to, but it’s probably not going to be good.
The cynic in me wonders if he’s just going to admit to the lesser charges, and the police will then cover up the more serious offenses so he doesn’t have to rot in jail.
