To refresh the memory, on March 2017, Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office has cleared Yoochun of all suspicions (Link), but this doesn’t mean the investigations were closed.
- 1st Accuser was Indicted and is currently serving a jail sentence.
- 2nd Accuser was charged without detention by Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office. On July 2017 she was found not guilty of false accusation and defamation by a unanimous jury vote, but the ruling was recently appealed by the Prosecution.
- 3rd and 4th Accusers whereabouts are unknown hence investigations were disrupted, because they couldn’t confirm anything that was spreaded by the media (Dispatch, etc) since the accusers never denounced legally to Yoochun, but of course their so called interviews will remain as truthful to some people even when there isn’t an objective research proving otherwise.
Related to the 2nd Accuser, there are news recently spreading about how the case is managed by the Prosecution.
Since this wasn’t Yoochun Lawyer but A Public Lawyer who represents a state or government (South Korea), I was waiting a final verdict before reporting to our readers. But seems like some information was leaked and is spreaded by the media (Main Source: Dispatch), alot criticism arised once again about how the Prosecutor is handling this case (Link), and of course I don’t pretend to defend the prosecutor because I myself do not agree about some stuffs. But the reason why I’m sharing this post is to inform our readers how english sites are spreading these news to international fans, and I can’t help to feel disappointed how certain site can’t even share this news properly if not to mislead the information calling the Prosecutor “Yoochun’s Lawyer”, I will probably not be reporting this if it was the 1st time it happened but it’s actually the 2nd time, can’t help to wonder if it was done on purpose or by ignorance? But by my own experience on this fandom, I know for sure things don’t happen of causality when is about dirtying more the image of a JYJ’s member, on this case Park Yoochun’s.
I’m sharing some comments for you to know the consequences of misleading the title:
[UPDATE on September 8th]
Following NB, Other English Sites such as Allkpop & KpopStarz also shared the news as If it was Yoochun’s Lawyer/ Yoochun’s Side saying all these stuffs to the 2nd accuser.
It’s concerning how international fans opinions can be influenced by these sites, especially Allkpop that has a big platform and its articles are translated in different languages. In part of the interview they shared, it clearly says Prosecution/Prosecuter. But they insist in calling Yoochun’s Lawyer/ Yoochun’s side and of course it’s taken by their readers as If it was Yoochun himself.

On July 20, insider A revealed both Yoochun and Hwang Ha Na’s families are against them breaking up, stating, “It’s a situation in which the two are being supported and advised to get through this.” The anonymous source who claimed to be an acquaintance of Hwang Ha Na further revealed in a cafe interview, “I think the two have become estranged. Hwang likes Yoochun, but issues started occurring when they went to restaurants or walked on the street together. People whisper and take pictures of them, so that’s hard for her.”
A added, “It’s really hard for Hwang when she hears negative remarks about her family. She usually has a cheerful personality, but these days she’s saying things like, ‘I don’t think people like my bright personality,’ and ‘I’m afraid of people.’ She doesn’t know what to do.”
Hwang allegedly told A and other acquaintances, “I can’t take it anymore. I want to receive blessings for my marriage, but I feel like everyone is criticizing me.” A said, “Hwang said, ‘These days, there are so many false rumors about me. It’s hard to stand those rumors. I tried not to worry about them, but I think it’s gotten past a point.'”
A concluded, “It’s true Hwang and Yoochun really love and care for each other, but because things have become such a big issue, she says, ‘I want to give it all up,’ a lot these days. She even told Yoochun they should break up. I want the two to do well. It’s a tough situation, but I hope they overcome these hardships.”

[NEWS] Yoochun speaks up for the first time about his controversy, marriage, and wish to return
JYJ’s Yoochun spoke up for the first time since his sexual assault controversy.
On July 17, Yoochun reached out to his fans with a sincere message via Instagram.
His post reads as follows:
“I can’t say anything else. I just wanted to tell everyone that I’m really sorry… But I didn’t how… Honestly, I didn’t have confidence. I’m just very sorry to the point where I just want to die… I’m so sorry. Even if my body gets destroyed day by day and cry, how could it be worse than the pain I gave you… I’m really sorry. I don’t like having articles pop up on portal sites and I know I’m really late but I’m sorry…
I recently spoke with Darakbang and I sincerely revealed that I want to stand up again… But I think my wish to start again doesn’t depend on my own desires. I’m just really sorry.
A lot of articles had information that I also heard for the first time but I couldn’t do anything about it. I’m just always sorry to you guys. I hope the day will come for me to deliver my apologetic mind.
I’m also sorry for not letting you guys know earlier about my marriage. It was difficult to talk about it when I haven’t even apologized yet. Please understand.
I’m trying hard day by day. You guys probably had a hard time holding on too. I’m so sorry and thankful. I really, sincerely wish I can greet you guys one day. Please give encouragement for me and Hana (Yoochun’s fiance). Again, I’m sorry.”
