South Korean K-pop band is facing a lot of issues lately. Just recently, we reported that singer Goo Hara had a tragic demise after she committed suicide. Goo’s dead body was discovered in her residence on Sunday. However, the exact reason of death is still unknown. After this tragic news, now we have learned that another South Korean K-pop star Jung Joon-young has been found guilty and convicted of gang rape to a woman on two different occasions. It is also reported, along with raping a woman, he even secretly filmed and distributed the illicit sex videos without consent.
Jung was found guilty for intoxicating a woman and raping her while she was unconscious and hence was sentenced to prison for 6 years while Choi was sentenced to five years in prison. According to Hindustan Times, Yonhap news agency cited the Seoul Central District Court as saying. “Jung and Choi took part in the gang rape of victims who were intoxicated and unable to resist. It is hard to fathom the extent of suffering the victims must have gone through.”
It is said that the culprits used to the victims only as “sexual objects” to be exploited and hence “a heavy punishment” is required, given the gravity of offenses. For the uninitiated, both cases emerged from the Burning Sun scandal that was uncovered earlier this year. In March 2019, Jung admitted to the Burning Sun scandal that he had "filmed women without their consent and shared it in a chatroom."
South Korean K-pop star Jung Joon-young is a singer-songwriter, radio DJ, host, actor, and television personality.
