On March 1 Park Shi Hoo showed up at the Seoul Seobu (Western) Police Station for his interview summons after police denied his latest lawyer’s request to transfer the case to the Gangnam Police Station. His lawyer stated that Park Shi Hoo is complying with the summons to get this matter resolved as quickly as possible since dragging it on only makes the situation worse. Gee, this statement makes more sense if he didn’t delay 2 earlier summons already. Park Shi Hoo, looking like death warmed over with the sallow complexion and eye bags, walked the media gauntlet of 200 reporters camped outside as he entered the police station. The only statement he made on the way in was to respectfully tell the media that he was sorry for causing such a big ordeal and the truth will be revealed shortly as he speaks with the police. The interview apparently went pretty much the entire day. After Park Shi Hoo arrived, the so-called other person being investigated also arrived for his interview. K is 24 year old actor Kim Hee Jun, who had bit parts in a few dramas and isn’t anywhere near the celebrity status of Park Shi Hoo. This week has seen more details leaked left and right – supposedly Park Shi Hoo offered 100 million won to A to settle but she turned it down, and his lawyer has emphatically denied that ever happened. K is supposedly in possession of a series of text messages between him and A the morning after the alleged rape. In those messages, she appears fine and chats amiably with K with no mention of being raped. All of the above leaks are unverified and I’m only mentioning it because it adds to the madhouse nature of this case and the investigation. From the get go there have been so much information given to the public by a variety of sources, not to mention the police themselves, that it borders on farcical. What is fact is that the police will have to determine after the interview with Park Shi Hoo and K, along with whatever independent investigation they are conducting, whether to charge one or both of them with rape. Until then, this case remains a sensationalized pit of lurid gossip and slings and arrows lobbed via the media.
