South Korean singer Jung Joon-Young is pictured attending the 3rd Gaon chart K-Pop Awards in Seoul.
He denies any wrongdoing and said he would cooperate with a police investigation when he arrived at Seoul's Metropolitan Police Agency.
Lee Suh-yoon, a writer for the The Korea Times, a daily newspaper, also suggested that "these recurring outbursts of gender-related crimes can no longer be attributed to ethical lapses of a few select individuals, meaning it's time to point the finger at society, culture and an industry that overlooks and encourages such horrifying behaviour".
Jung's agency, MAKEUS Entertainment, has terminated his contract and he has been barred from leaving the country while police question him. According to Around US Entertainment, "We learned of the facts stated (above) through Yong Junhyung's witness questioning". K-pop stars generally cultivate clean-cut images - and are actively promoted by the South Korean government as a key cultural export - making the scandal even more shocking.

Industry commentators have taken aim at the business managers, notorious for demanding the strictest of training regimes and controlling every aspect of young stars' lives.
"If the agencies do not give sufficient care to their stars, including education and stress management, they will end up raising walking time bombs", said another industry commentator, Kim Sung-soo.
A petition calling on the president to crack down on predatory and corrupt practices the scandals have exposed has gathered more than 200,000 signatures.
But some fans are already walking away. "I feel ashamed that I was a silent observer".
"I just want people to know this is not OK".
"We would like to extend our deepest apologies for causing so much worry to fans and the public regarding the case of violence that occured at the club managed by Seungri and the subsequent development of events", YG said.
