It was revealed earlier that Open World Entertainment CEO Jang Seok Woo was arrested recently on charges of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and rape, but as the details come out, it paints an even worse picture of the events.
According to industry representatives, the CEO has been a regular of underground clubs and enjoyed a night out frequently.
One revealed, “When he got drunk, his hands were always the problem. He’d sometimes grope the bodies of female employees.” Another who requested to remain anonymous added, “The entertainment industry is already well aware of his atrocities. He’s one of the worst customers you want when drunk.”
The girl group trainees he allegedly assaulted are no longer with the agency, but when they were, the CEO had managed them himself. All of the trainees were reported to have dormed together.
Another official that knows the inner workings of the company commented, “There used to be rumors that a few of the trainees actually used to be prostitutes, but that was proven to be false… The CEO took care of everything from their debut preparations to training, and even personally drove them around in a van himself.”
Police also revealed that they have received more shocking reports of the CEO allegedly forcing male idol group members to sexually assault his female trainees. The CEO is denying the reports.
I’m guessing the articles don’t mention him by name for privacy reasons or something, but unless the reports about it being the CEO are wrong, the man in question is Jang Seok Woo.
Anyway, yeah, so basically he allegedly used his power to assault trainees who would essentially have no choice but to say yes. Even if they didn’t say yes, the charges mentioned include rape, so he may have just done it anyway.
Worse yet, he supposedly took it to the next level by forcing other people under his power to assault the female trainees. That’s like a different level of twisted, really. The kind of shit that a serial killer might do.
Any word on any of the female trainees being underage? I see that as a possibility as well.
