After weeks of investigations, Police have revealed that JYJ's Yoochun will be acquitted of the four sexual assault charges that were made against him.
According to reports, the Seoul Gangnam police released a statement on July 11 stating that despite DNA evidence of sexual relations between Yoochun and the first alleged victim, there was not enough evidence to prove that coercion or violence was involved, and as such, the police have acquitted the singer.
“As it is difficult to prove the use of force, the charges of sexual assault are not valid. He will be acquitted.”
While the investigation on the sexual assault charges have concluded, and the results will be forwarded to the prosecution by the end of this week or early next week, investigations into whether exchanges of money and blackmail were involved in the saga, false accusations by the alleged victims, and possible solicitation of prostitution by Yoochun is still ongoing.

As the police investigation continues, the police stated that they found DNA of a male on the undergarment submitted as evidence from the first woman who filed the complaint against Yoochun. As yet, it is unknown if the DNA matches that of Yoochun's.
In total, there are 4 women who are allegedly claiming that they were assaulted by Yoochun in the last 2 years.

One day after the woman who claimed to have been sexually assaulted by Yoochun dropped her case, another woman has come forward to say that JYJ's Yuchun sexually assaulted her.
Western Seoul Police told EDaily that a second complaint has been filed about an incident that happened on December 16th of last year.
The woman in her early 20s claimed that she was allegedly assaulted by Park in the bathroom of a club. She said that Park told her that he couldn't hear her and took her to the bathroom where he assaulted her.
Police said it will do all it can to investigate the woman's claims before they question Park. Meanwhile, Park's agency CJeS Entertainment has denied these allegations and said that Yoochun would retire from the industry if he's found guilty of the charges.
"The first charge is still being investigated and we are certain that they'll find that Yoochun is innocent. He's currently in a big shock. Please wait for the result of the investigation."

After news broke about an alleged sexual assault, Park Yoochun was accompanied by 6 managers on the way to work -- at the Gangnam District Office where he is carrying out his mandatory military service.
Despite the onslaught of questions from reporters, Park kept walking without answering any questions.
After some conflicting news reports, the woman retracted her statement. However, even if the woman retracts her statement, it's possible for the investigation to go on once the police are on the case.
According to Yonhap, the woman claimed that the relations were consensual, but she was annoyed at how Park and his friends were treating him, which led to her filing the case with the police.
JYJ's Yoochun has been accused of sexual assault by a woman in her 20's.
As reported by Naver, the incident took place in the early morning of June 4 at a drinking establishment. The woman, known as Ms. Lee, stated that Yoochun came to the bar on the night of June 3, and assaulted her in the early hours of next morning in a restroom.
According to reports, Ms. Lee was an employee at the establishment, and her boyfriend apparently personally filed the charges to the police in her stead on June 10. As evidence, Ms. Lee submitted the clothing she was wearing during the alleged assault to the police.
In response to these allegations, C-JeS Entertainment has issued out an official statement asserting that the claims are false:
“We will not compromise to malicious blackmail out to ruin a celebrity. Park Yoochun will diligently submit to the police investigation so that the truth can be revealed.”
Reports state that an official charge has not been issued, and the Seoul Gangnam Police Station are currently investigating the matter. A request for DNA analysis on Ms. Lee's clothing has been requested, and both Ms. Lee and Yoochun will be called in for questioning soon.
