KEY POINTS

  • Woojin's supposed new label, 10x Entertainment, addressed the sexual assault allegations made against him
  • The company released photos to "prove" Woojin was at home when the alleged sexual assault happened
  • The former Stray Kids member earlier slammed the accusations in an Instagram post

After ex-Stray Kids member Woojin denied the sexual assault allegations made against him, the K-pop singer's label has now addressed the accusations and expressed that it will not be taking them lightly.

10x Entertainment, supposedly Woojin's new management company after leaving JYP Entertainment and K-pop group Stray Kids, has broken its silence regarding the accusations made against the singer and released a statement on Twitter and Instagram with “evidence” that could clear the air once and for all.

The label uploaded a couple of screenshots that supposedly prove the former Stray Kids member was at home and not at a bar when the alleged sexual assault happened.

One screenshot showed a selfie taken by Woojin, which 10x Entertainment said was from “March 10th, the photo posted on the artist's Instagram on April 29th.” The second featured a photo of Woojin holding an accessory that the company said was taken while he was at home on April 29 at 1 a.m.

Another Twitter user, who claimed to have been in the same bar as Woojin “during the coronavirus pandemic,” alleged that the singer grabbed her when she was on her way to the toilet. She said that she had been drunk at the time and tried to resist, but he didn’t stop touching her.

“TenX Entertainment confirmed the above directly, and will actively respond to the spread of malicious false information and defamation against the artist with additional evidence,” Woojin’s label continued.

10x Entertainment also vowed to take “legal action against the malicious falsehood of Kim Woo-jin, an artist belonging to TenX Entertainment” and protect the image of the former Stray Kids member and his fans.

“In addition, if you send us related data such as SNS links and PDF files that have been posted on the artist, we will proceed with additional legal action based on the data,” the company said.

Woojin earlier denied the sexual assault accusations and maintained that he had never met these women nor had he been to the bar that was mentioned. 

“I know my fans must've been very shocked, but it's not true so don't worry too much. Also, I recently found an agency that my heart agrees with, so I'm working hard to prepare for solo promotions,” Woojin wrote.

Following the statement from Woojin's supposed management, however, another entertainment company with the name 10X Entertainment made a post clarifying that it had no connection to the K-pop star.

“Hi there! It has come to our attention we are being confused with another entity - potentially controversial,” the company posted on its Facebook page. “Our company is not associated with a Kim Woojin. We are a local DJ duo based in Chicagoland!”
