Himchan may be dragged into the courtroom once again. He is accused of sexually assaulting two more women.

On May 26, two more victims came forward to accuse former BAP member Himchan of sexual assault allegations.

The idol was first accused of sexual assault in 2019. He had just accepted the assault case five days ago.

Here is everything you need to know.

Himchan accused of sexually harassing two more women

Both victims claimed that a drunk Himchan sexually assaulted them outside the steps of a club in Hannam-dong, Seoul. One of the idol’s acquaintances allegedly owns the bar.

The incident was reported to have occurred on April 16. Shortly after the incident, they filed a report about the 32-year-old K-pop idol at the Yongsan Police Station in Seoul.

SBS News reported that one of the victims was a foreigner.

The women stated that they met Himchan for the first time at the bar. They also said they were waiting for their food outside the building when a drunk Himchan bumped into them.

They went on to say that the idol took the cell phone of one of the women shortly afterward. He allegedly wrapped his arm around her waist and said, ‘Let’s go upstairs together’.

Other women claimed that Himchan repeatedly touched her chest when she protested.

The alleged victims showed concern when they learned that Himchan was already facing a sexual harassment count. ‘We are concerned there will be other victims,’ they said.

Himchan’s lawyer’s response to two women’s sexual assault allegations

The cops are investigating the case. They got the security camera footage of the incident.

Himchan’s lawyer denied the harassment claim behind the physical touch.

“If you see CCTV, you can see that there was unavoidable physical contact, but there was no sexual intent,” he said.

He also told SBS News, ‘They were standing on a cramped staircase when another customer opened a door and entered the stairs. For the sake of safety, there was physical contact on the waist of one of the alleged victims. We’re sorry if this bothered you.’

However, the lawyer denied the accusation of women touching Himchan’s chest.

‘There was no contact with the other alleged victim’s chest,’ he said. But there was physical contact for similar reasons. There was no sexual intent in contact with either woman.’
