The Princess’ Man main actor Park Shi Hoo is facing a big dilemma on his career that would change his life ultimately. He was recently accused for allegedly raped a trainee on his apartment!
Police: Trainee ‘A’ spotted being carried into Park Shi Hoo’s home
After the initial findings, the police were able to obtain CCTV footage of Park Si Hoo, trainee ‘A’, and Park Si Hoo’s hoobae named as individual ‘B’. According to the police, the CCTV footage shows the trio getting out of a car and getting into an elevator at Park Si Hoo’s residence. The woman ‘A’ is carried by ‘B’ on his back, who had also driven the car on the way to Park Si Hoo’s house.
The investigation is still ongoing, especially since Park Si Hoo’s summon isn’t until the 24th.
Another angle to see for Park Shi Hoo’s rape case:
The owner of the bar where Park Shi Hoo met the person known as Trainee A, who has accused him of sexual assault, spoke out regarding the evening in question. Along with handing over the contents of the security camera and giving his own point of view, the owner of the bar also revealed that Park Shi Hoo and his accuser (and a third “Person B,” who had introduced the two) ordered two bottles of vinegar-flavored soju for the night. According to Naver users, soju mixed with flavored vinegar is much easier and less agitating to drink, as the flavored vinegar takes away the bitterness of the soju and leaves a sweet aftertaste.
Assuming that Person B had not one sip of the alcohol (he drove the group to another location afterwards), netizens are speculating that Trainee A drank most of the soju. It had been previously revealed in several accounts that Park Shi Hoo has a fairly low tolerance for alcohol.
Furthermore, it was confirmed that both Park Shi Hoo and Person B met with the accuser after the scandal broke out. Person B, who introduced Park Shi Hoo and Trainee A, claims to have joined in order to “clear up the misunderstanding and to provide an objective point-of-view of the event that occurred that night.” A representative told Sports Korea that Park Shi Hoo wanted to understand the reason behind her accusations. They said, “Park Shi Hoo wanted to know what the reason was for A’s accusation, and wanted to clear up the situation before his questioning. He wants to figure out how he will handle the situation and provide a much clearer stance for the police during the investigation.”The representative also said that although reaching a mutual agreement would be the best case, Park Shi Hoo’s image has been damaged severely, and they may counter-sue Trainee A for libel and possibly ruining his career as an actor.
Here are some more updates on the Park Shi Hoo sexual assault case.
We previously reported that the owner of the bar, in which Park Shi Hoo and his accuser drank, looked at the surveillance footage of that night. The bar owner stated that both Park Shi Hoo and the accuser A didn’t seem that drunk and that A was even able to go down a flight of stairs without any help. However, new reports state that the police investigated the surveillance footage of Park Shi Hoo’s home and discovered that A was carried inside by another celebrity, K.
On February 14, Park Shi Hoo, A and rookie actor K drank together. On February 20, the police discovered that K drove Park Shi Hoo and A home in his own car. The CCTV footage also revealed that K carried A on his back while Park Shi Hoo walked on his own inside. On February 20, sources from the rookie actor K spoke with TV Report and said, “Park Shi Hoo and A met through K. After drinking, the three of them happily went home. Park Shi Hoo and A spent time together with mutual interest. At the bar and in Park Shi Hoo’s home, everyone had a good time.”
Rookie actor K revealed that the morning after, he and A texted each other, asking how each other was doing. K commented, “If there was sexual assault on that night, she couldn’t have texted me in that manner. I cannot see a reason for this accusation. She suddenly changed,” and “There are so many rumors right now that it’s really unfair. Moreover, I’m incredibly sorry to senior Park Shi Hoo.”
There have also been reports that the three of them have met up for the first time after this scandal had erupted. On February 20, Park Shi Hoo reportedly met up with A to ask her to tell him the exact reasons of her accusations. Apparently, rookie actor K was present as well. However, Park Shi Hoo’s sources later on denied these reports and said that this encounter did not take place.
Park Shi Hoo is to officially go in for questioning for the investigation of this case on February 24 at 10 AM. Police sources say, “We tried to set up an appointment to have Park Shi Hoo come in but he did not respond so we sent him a notice to request for his attendance,” and “If one fails to attend on 3 counts, a warrant can be issued for arrest but since Park Shi Hoo is pleading not guilty, we think he will be coming in.”
In addition, the bar owner spoke with the press revealing more details about the night of the incident.
When asked if Park Shi Hoo a frequent customer of the bar, the owner answered, “I think he comes quite often. I’ve only seen him 2-3 times myself. On the night of the incident, I didn’t see him. I found out about this through the media and after asking my employees, I checked the CCTV footage myself.”
The owner continued, “Including Park Shi Hoo, there were three people. They drank in a private room. Park Shi Hoo and another male actor K came sometime between 10:30 PM – 11:00 PM. A came a little later. Park Shi Hoo paid for the bill at around 1:30 AM. Then about 10 minutes after, they all left.” About the amount of alcohol they consumed, the owner revealed, “The three of them ordered two bottles of soju. I don’t know who drank how much.”
Questions were also asked about A’s appearance. The owner stated, “She looked like a normal, twenty-something female. She wasn’t dressed up fancily. She was wearing demin skinny jeans.”
The bar owner also revealed, “They left in the car they came in. They did not ask us to call the designated driver service or take the taxi.”
