This agency urges everyone to refrain from sensationalising the news and to patiently wait for the investigating institutions' decision. The bathroom was inside a room at a bar where Park had been drinking with a group of friends.
Former TVXQ member, Park Yoochun, gutted with another sexual assault case.
Although she had withdrawn the charge, police said investigations into the case will proceed as it is not necessary for the victim to press charges to open a sexual assault case under Korean law.
Aside from being a part of JYJ, Park Yoochun is also known for hisroles in Korean dramas such as Miss Ripley (2011), Rooftop Prince (2012), and The Girl Who Sees Smells (2015).
The woman, however, changed her statement and dropped the suit at about midnight Wednesday, according to police.
The woman filed a petition with Dongdaemun Police Station in eastern Seoul, expressing her wish to press charges, authorities said. "Last but not least, we are going to take legal actions against all expanding or producing materials without a confirmation of fact as considering defamation", the agency said.
The 30-year-old is now working at Gangnam-gu Office in southern Seoul to substitute for his mandatory military service of about two years.
