In the past, some K-Pop idols have been accused of sex crimes.

And given the seriousness of the accusations, their careers have been affected substantially by it as well. You can check them out below!

 

YooChun (JYJ) – Verdict: Innocent

Back in June 2016, a woman claimed that YooChun raped her inside the restroom of a bar. The woman’s boyfriend submitted her underwear and clothing to the police to police forensics as evidence. And to make matters worse, three additional women stepped forth and accused him of rape.

However, it turned out that the first woman who accused the K-Pop idol of rape had consensual sex with YooChun and was even blackmailing his agency in an attempt to extort money out of them. The woman was sentenced to two years in prison. As for the other women who accused YooChun, none of them were able to give convincing evidence that the crime had actually taken place. In addition, YooChun was reportedly in China at the time and could not have possibly committed the crimes.
