H.O.T Jang Woo-hyuk sues the employees who exposed his violent tendency at work

Jang Woo-hyuk, a member of the group H.O.T., sued two of his former employees who claimed to have been assaulted and verbally abused by him.

Jang Woo-hyuk recently reported two employees who worked for the entertainment company he runs at Gangnam Police Station in Seoul on July 7th for defamation and obstruction of business due to false facts.

These two former employees of his company posted a post on the online community saying that Jang had physically abused, verbally abused and treated them unfairly.

A female employee who worked for his company in 2014 claimed on June 9th, “He didn’t hire a manager, so us employees had to go out to the filming site in the midsummer sun to help him shoot, and he didn’t provide water or meals at all, I even had to do the work of stylist and makeup staff.”

Later, another female employee B also claimed, “I was hit on the head by him with a hand wearing leather gloves in a taxi while moving to a Korean restaurant during a business trip in Qingdao, China in 2014, and I had had to continuously hear his scolding remarks even after arriving at the restaurant.”

In addition, A also revealed that “Jang Woo-hyuk hit me with his hand at the K broadcasting station in 2019 after calling me profanities while I was setting his in-ear microphone.”

A and B also learned that on June 6th, C, who was a trainee at Jang Woo-hyuk’s entertainment company, wrote a letter demanding an apology, stating that they suffered from swearing and ruthless violence from Jang Woo-hyuk around 2016. C wrote in such a way that they had a similar experience to A and B.

In the process, Jang Woo-hyuk met with C in person and apologized, but it is known that he also filed a criminal complaint against A and B, claiming that the allegations they made were untrue.

Jang Woo-hyuk recently expressed the injustice he felt due to the allegations of his former employees through his fan cafe.

He said, “Things that I thought would pass by because they were just not true became poison and made it harder for the fans who have been anxious for a month. I thought if I were just to put up with the situation, it would be over, but it wasn’t. I have taken all legal measures so that I can become an artist and singer whom my fans can be proud of like I am now.”

SBS Entertainment News tried to contact Jang Woo-hyuk to hear his detailed position after he sued the former employees, but there was no response.
