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.
