Kim Hyung-jun has been cleared of the sexual assault charges.

According to the Ilsan-Dongbu Police on June 11, the charges have been dropped due to insufficient evidence. Police said, "After an in-depth comprehensive investigation of the statements and circumstances from both sides, we have concluded that there is no sufficient evidence to prove the sexual assault suspicions."

Kim Hyung-jun  was suspected of sexual assault after 'A' filed a complaint alleging that she was raped by Kim Hyung-jun  at her home in Goyang City in late March.

Kim Hyung-jun denied the allegations during investigation saying "it was sexual intercourse by mutual consent" and planned to sue for defamation. Because of the allegations, he also had to stop all military activities to undergo investigation.

After the police conclusion, Kim Hyung-jun plans to resume activities immediately with a tour in Japan in July drawing attention. As for the alleged victim 'A', she has filed a counterclaim against the police's conclusion and will continue her suit.
