It has been revealed on July 15 that a representative from an entertainment agency has been arrested for sexually harassing and assaulting trainees within the company.
The man who has been revealed as ‘Kim’ is a 32-year-old male who worked as a representative for entertainment agency ‘P’. It has been disclosed that he used his position of power to sexually assault and harass a number of girl trainees who were in their teens. The former representative threatened the trainees with his power but also continuously mentioned that his father was a retired police officer who had connections which insinuated that there was nothing the trainees could do.
Also, it’s been reported that he took away their phones and locked them inside without any communication. He further threatened the trainees by stating that if they left the agency, they would be required to pay a tremendous amountof penalty fees.
These claims and accusations had come to light back in January in which the police started to investigate up until May. Afterward, the collection of evidence and reports were handed over for a court trial back in June.
