"They met a few times with good feelings, but sexual assault is something that couldn′t happen. It most definitely didn′t happen. We even have recorded files of her pressuring the agency. We′ve never even created a reason for her to, but she keeps threatening us because he′s an idol. We have records of the phone conversations as well, so if she continues to make false claims, we will reveal them all."

The rep continued, "The date of the police questioning is currently being set by our lawyer. Once the investigation results come out, we′ll reveal everything."

According to the Gangnam Police Department on March 5, a woman in her 20s claimed that that a ZEST member sexually asssaulted her once and once again a few days later. Regarding this claim, ZEST′s agency said it was groundless. The woman, who revealed that she′s also an idol, stated, "They′re making me into a liar."
