6 Produce 101 Trainees Claim They Were Sexually Harassed
Just recently, a post on an K-Pop online community in South Korea claimed that six male idol trainees who participated in the second season of ‘Produce 101′ were sexually harassed by their female CEO (53), and her younger sibling.
According to the accusers, ten idol trainees were in Japan during the time for about one month for performances. After all their performances were over, they were invited to a dinner at a restaurant in Tokyo on September 28th, 2018. It was at the restaurant where the trainees claimed that the CEO touched them inappropriately and made unwanted sexual advances towards them.
The trainees’ legal representative released an official statement saying that the trainees have been receiving psychiatric treatment due to the trauma caused by the incident and have filed the evidence to the Seoul Central District Court while requesting the suspension of all the trainees’ contracts with their current agency.
The CEO who has been accused has so far denied all the charges and stated that she will prove her innocence through the law.
