Netizens are wondering if Kris Wu will undergo chemical castration in his home country Canada.
On November 25th, the Chaoyang District People’s Court in Beijing, China, sentenced former EXO member Kris Wu to 13 years in prison and deportation from China in the first trial for charges such as rape and sexual assault of minors. Kris Wu was sentenced to 11 years and 6 months in prison for rape, and a year and 10 months for group licentiousness.
Kris Wu, a Canadian citizen, will be deported back to his home country after serving 13 years in the Chinese prison if the first trial is confirmed. As a result, speculation is emerging in China that Kris Wu may be subject to chemical castration in Canada for sex offenders.
Chemical castration involves forcibly suppressing sexual desire by injecting drugs or hormones into sex offenders. Canada is a country that actively implements chemical castration on sex offenders. The Canadian Correctional Service is known to inject drugs and hormones into sex offenders who have been determined to have chemical castration, while also providing family counseling, group counseling, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
Kris Wu debuted as a member of the groups EXO and EXO-M in 2012. In 2014, he filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment to terminate his exclusive contract and left the group. Since then, Kris Wu has been promoting as a singer and actor in China. He was arrested by the police last year after it was revealed that he called underage women late at night for auditions and fan meetings, and had sexual intercourse with them.
