This past July, the courts found Ms. Song innocent of defamation of character and false accusations against the JYJ member due to lack of evidence. However, Yoochun's side filed to appeal a week after the ruling.

The first appeal trial for Yoochun's case against Ms. Song was held on September 5, and the prosecution claimed the bathroom in which the alleged sexual assault took place was too small for an assault to occur. Yoochun's side stated, "The jury for the initial trial unanimously voted 'not guilty,' but it's not possible for rape to occur in a small bathroom. What really occurred is that Yoochun did not give Ms. Song his number or money after consensual sex, so she falsely accused him of rape." The prosecution further alleged the evidence was not properly reviewed in the intial trial, and Yoochun's testimony may have caused misunderstanding among the jury. Ms. Song's acquaintance,who exchanged text messages with her around the time of the incident, was also requested as a new witness. However, the judge found no need for the acquaintance to be called.

Woman Who Falsely Accused Uhm Tae Woong Of Sexual Assault Sentenced To Prison

April 28, 2017, the woman who sued Uhm Tae Woong for sexual assault in July 2016 (hereafter referred to as Ms. Kwon) was sentenced with two years and six months in prison as well as completion of a 40-hour program about sexual violence.

Judge Oh Taek Won, who resided over the case, said, Although the defendant is claiming that there was no specific offer or consent for the three instances of sexual intercourse [between her and Uhm Tae Woong], sexual intercourse between a man and a woman involves an extremely private and implied agreement. In the audio recordings submitted as evidence, there is no assault nor are there threats; there is simply intermittent conversation and laughter. Moreover, there was no refusal when [Uhm Tae Woong] booked the defendant by name. Considering these facts, the court acknowledges that the sex was consensual, and that the accusations of sexual assault [against Uhm Tae Woong] were false.
