NU’EST Member Kang DongHo ‘Baekho’ Found Not Guilty Of Sexual Assault
After a lengthy legal battle that went on for nearly a year, the verdict is finally out and the court has finally ruled in favor of NU’EST member Kang DongHo.
The K-Pop idol was accused of sexual assault back in 2017 when an anonymous person in an online community came forth with claims that Kang DongHo assaulted her inside a bus during their high school years. The accuser uploaded snapshots of their KakaoTalk messages and an audio recording of a phone conversation between the two as well.
Although fans stood beside him, Kang DongHo also faced a strong backlash as the case went on. His billboard ads in public areas that fans paid for were removed due to complaints being filed.
Pledis Entertainment released an official statement on April 16th saying that Kang DongHo has been found innocent of all charges and will take legal action against the ones responsible for falsely accusing him.
