Uhm Tae Woong (“Wanted”, “Valid Love”) is the latest celebrity to be embroiled in a sexual assault scandal. A woman, who is referred to as “A” in the complaint” has filed a lawsuit against the actor on July 15th for sexual assault. The woman stated that Uhm visited a massage parlor that does not sell sex, and assaulted her in January of this year.
The alleged victim is currently being detained at the police station on an unrelated charge. The woman was arrested for fraud on July 12th, where is revealed the alleged attack after being questioned.
Uhm agency released a statement, claiming “Uhm Tae Woong found out about the lawsuit through reports. He is currently in Korea. We are figuring out what happened right now.” The actor has been married to ballerina Yoon Hye Jin since 2013. The couple also welcomed a baby girl later that year.
Maybe it’s something in the water. I am still shocked at the number of assault cases involving high profile celebrities this year. I am always even more sad for the ones who are married with a family. The story is still developing, stay tuned…
