The two previously mentioned idols from Open World Entertainment have been booked by the police, and an arrest warrant has been issued for the artist who allegedly participated in the sex abuse scandal but was not a member of the company.
The CEO (Jang Seok Woo) already seems to be screwed, but the question now is what the fate of the artists will be.
On April 18th, Seoul Kangnam Police told TVDaily, “We are issuing out a warrant of arrest for the singer ‘A’, who is in his 30s, involved in the case.” They also commented, “The two idol group members have also been booked without detention.”
As mentioned before, ‘A’ is reported to be someone who has a personal connection to the Open World Entertainment CEO, but is not under the label.
The police also revealed that they will be concluding the investigations on April 19th to hand over the case to prosecutors.
That’s all confirmed, but what remains in the air are the identities of the accused idols and singer.
One media outlet reports that members of The Boss are not involved.
According to one media outlet, News1, they have obtained a statement from a source within the police who has stated, “The idol members involved in this case are not from The Boss… The two members involved who carried out the commands by the CEO have been booked.”
If true, that basically leaves X-5.
Like I said before, this mess is only getting started.
