Lee Jae-won, former member of H.O.T., made his first on-air comments about having been accused of sexually assaulting a Miss Kim, a singer hopeful. On an entertainment news program “ENEWS” on the cable channel tvN, Lee talked about his relationship with the accuser, what actually happened on the day of question, and what he went through after the whole affairs became public.
Lee said that he wants to be very cautious about what he says, because it could destroy a person’s life. He was reportedly very frightened when reporters descended on him when the matter was release and it didn’t matter to them whether he was innocent or guilty. This interview was supposedly his first and last reference about the incident.
The former idol star was charged with sexual assault on December 19. The girl claimed that Lee attacked her while they were drinking, but Lee defended himself by saying that the sex was consensual. The two settled out of court and Lee was released in just three hours.
