Ko Young Wook, the TV personality under suspicion of raping a minor, appeared at the Seoul Yongsan Police Agency on May 15. Because it was his first public appearance in a week since the incident first made it to the press, more than 100 journalists had swarmed to the Police Agency, crowding its small doors.

Ko Young Wook Appears at Police Agency in a Suit

After getting off of his car, Ko Young Wook stood in front of the journalists and said, “I’m sorry for causing such a scandal. I’ll cooperate with the police investigation as much as possible.” He then quickly disappeared into the Police Agency. He didn’t answer any of the questions that bombarded him on the way to the criminal department. His attitude was completely different from that shown in the post he left on his agency’s official website, in which he acknowledged his faults yet appealed that he was being falsely accused.

Ko Young Wook’s fashion especially caught the eyes of the press. Most celebrities that appear in front of the police have hats pulled over their heads and sport unkempt appearances, but Ko Young Wook had donned a black suit with a white shirt. Except for his serious expression, it was as if he had walked out of a television broadcast.

The visit was Ko Young Wook’s second in relation to the case following his first summons on May 7. The Yongsan Police Agency had filed for an arrest warrant with confidence on the case, but the prosecution turned the request down saying that there wasn’t enough evidence. As such, the Police Agency had to summon the celebrity yet again for a corroborative investigation.

The police plan to investigate whether Ko Young Wook knew the 18 year old victim was underage beforehand, and whether any force was involved in the sexual relations. It will also look for additional information and evidence.

Ko Young Wook is under investigation as a suspect for the rape of a minor after having sex two times with an 18 year old aspiring celebrity.
