BAP member Himchan is under investigation in connection with an alleged ‘indecent assault’ of a woman in her 20s in August of this year, according to authorities.
According to the woman, there were three men and three women, including “A” and herself, hanging out at the vacation home when she was assaulted.
“A” is denying the charge. A source of the police commented, “As the two sides are making conflicting claims and the incident is under investigation, the specific charge cannot be revealed.”
TS Entertainment stepped forward to identify the member and issued a statement, describing what transpired as a “misunderstanding” and that the investigation is ongoing.
“As reported, a misunderstanding took place when B.A.P’s Himchan was with an acquaintance and friends after being invited by the acquaintance, and he has received a police investigation. There was a report that the police forwarded the case to the prosecution, but the claims of the two sides are very conflicting, so more investigations have to take place. He will diligently take part in the investigation to provide evidence for the facts, and we will release statements again as the incident gets settled. As the investigation is still taking place, we ask for speculative reports to not be released. We express our apologies for causing worry to many people.”
Impossible to judge this with what we know thus far, honestly. Now that it’s public, we’ll likely get further details as the investigation continues.
