The best defense is a good offense? Park Shi Hoo’s new lawyer seems to subscribe to that philosophy because this morning it was revealed that Park Shi Hoo has filed a lawsuit at the Seoul Seobu (Western) Police station against his alleged rape victim A for blackmail, against A’s supposed best friend B for defamation, and against the director of his former management agency Eyagi. Talk about hitting three birds with one very large stone. Apparently Park Shi Hoo was the one who fired his last lawyer (not the other way around), because of some advice given that Park Shi Hoo did not agree with. Hhhhmmm, wondering what that could be? I’m not sure why he’s filing a civil suit at the police station when it ought to be at the courthouse but this will surely throw more fuel into the fire. There have been rumors bandied about that the entire rape allegation was one big conspiracy orchestrated by Park Shi Hoo’s former agency Eyagi, which was pissed that he left them in January to start his own agency Hoo Factory. Once again, this is not an impossibility, but K-stars change agencies ALL THE TIME (most recently Hyun Bin and Shin Mina starting their own agency, as well as Kang Ji Hwan), so the chances that disgruntled agencies are out there trying to destroy the lives and careers of their departed stars strikes me as rather far-fetched but that’s just my 2 cents. The blackmail charge against A stems from the alleged text messages where B discusses A can get money from Park Shi Hoo, the defamation charge against B is for the interview given last week containing explicit details of the supposed rape, and I’m not sure what evidence bolsters his charge against Eyagi for conspiring to set him up for the rape charge.
There are now more specific details of the alleged rape contained in A’s police complaint. She claimed Park Shi Hoo raped her twice, and the rape kit sample taken from her has detected the presence of male semen. Both Park Shi Hoo and K were swabbed on Friday so that the police can determine if one or both of these men are the source of the male semen found on A. I’m not sure confirming Park Shi Hoo’s semen sample on A does anything since he already confirmed sleeping with A. It would be very telling if a sample of K’s semen was also found in A, since he’s not made any confession that he also slept with her. In fact, K claimed that he lived on the outskirts of Seoul so that is why he crashed at Park Shi Hoo’s place that night. I’m a little amused that if Park Shi Hoo is telling the truth that it was a consensual sexual encounter, that would mean he and A slept together in his room while K crashed on the sofa outside. How very titillating. K claimed that A’s allegation that he groped her the next morning was the result of him returning the bedding and linens back to Park Shi Hoo’s bedroom before leaving. LOL, please will someone tell me how a person can mistake “groping and molestation” as A claimed with K’s “excuse me while I put the comforter on the bed”. Also, hello where’s the bro code on this one? Why would K walk into the bedroom to return bed linen when there is a possibility Park Shi Hoo and A was inside doing god know’s what? Ever heard of folding it neatly on the sofa and leaving discreetly? This really is like a very poorly written episode of Law and Order: SVU (K-star edition).
