Actor Park Si-hoo was charged with rape by authorities in Seoul on Monday, according to the Chosun Ilbo.
A 22-year-old woman said she met Park through a mutual friend and drank with him at a bar in Seoul’s Gangnam district.
Police said the woman claims to have lost consciousness and realized she had been raped when she woke up. Police said they plan to summon Park for questioning. The handsome actor became famous in TV soaps including “Alice in Cheongdam-dong” and “The Princess’ Man.”
Park, known to be a non-drinker and non-smoker, released a statement through his representatives admitting that he went out drinking with the woman, according to allkpop.
To be honest, we admit that he drank with ‘A,’ who he met through a mutual acquaintance. However, in this process, they shared a mutual interest in each other as a man and woman. He never forced anything on her. There is nothing he is embarrassed about on this point, and it will be clearly proven in the investigation. Please be patient.
We bow our heads and apologize to all the fans who trusted and loved him but were worried. But we say again that there was nothing forced that fans should be worried about. To prove this, actor Park Si Hoo promises to diligently participate in all police investigations.
