Roy Kim's Explains His Story In A Letter After His Pornography Case Was Suspended By Prosecution

Back in April 2019, singer Roy Kim was accused of sharing and viewing illegal sex cams in a chatroom with fellow singer Jung Joon Young. Nearly a year later, his case has now been suspended by the prosecution after new details of his potential innocence had been revealed.

Investigations confirmed that Roy Kim was not in fact a member of the controversial chatroom, but another chatroom with Jung Joon Young that was created for friends who enjoyed fishing together.

Roy Kim did not share illegal sex cams, but had been found to have shared one screenshot of a blog explaining that a sexual photo was actually an edited fake.

Roy explained his story in a letter to his fans where he revealed that his intentions were to share the fact that the photo was fake. Despite his intentions, his actions could be classified as illegally sharing pornography, and he is now deeply reflecting on his actions.

Back in 2016, I found out that a viral rumored photo was fake after finding a blog that explained the truth in details. I took a screenshot of the blog on my phone and shared the explanation and the photo in a chatroom that was created for people with a similar hobby. I recently learned that the action itself was wrong, no matter what my intentions or situation was, and I’m deeply reflecting on my actions.

Roy apologized to his fans numerous times and thanked those who had never given up hope on his innocence. He vowed to continue on forward with a sense of responsibility and honesty.

In order for me to not disappoint those who continued to trust and wait for me until the end, and in order to go back to the Roy Kim that everyone cheered for and loved, I will walk step by step with a heavy sense of responsibility and an honest heart.

His agency, Stone Music had also released a statement explaining Roy Kim’s recent court case results. Although they did not directly mention what Roy’s next steps in his music career will be, they promised to be more “humble” and “exemplary” from now on.

Hello, this is Stone Music Entertainment.

Last April, our artist Roy Kim was investigated by the police for accusations claiming he had spread pornography, and the prosecutors have agreed to suspend the case.

We want to convey our apologies to the fans who have waited a long time for him and those who were disappointed by the unfortunate news.

Roy Kim dutifully cooperated with the investigations, and it was confirmed that he had shared a screenshot of a portal site blog image one time to the Kakaotalk chatroom back in 2016.

Roy Kim was unaware that this action can be considered a wrongdoing of sharing pornography, no matter what his intentions were. He regrets his careless actions and is reflecting on it.

We want to emphasize that the chatroom that Roy Kim was a part of, was not the controversial chatroom.

We will do our best to show a humble and exemplary image from now on. We apologize once again.

Thank you.

Meanwhile, Jung Joon Young and other members of the controversial chatroom that actually contained illegally filmed sex cams have been sentenced to jail.

Hello, this is Roy Kim,

I’m hesitant if it is alright for me to write this letter to everyone who have been waiting for me.

But I sincerely want to convey my apology and gratitude, so I decided to write this letter.

I received the results of the investigation a little while back. I wanted to let you know first, but the details were reported by the media first and I’m sorry about that.

First, back in 2016, I found out that a viral rumored photo was fake after finding a blog that explained the truth in details. I took a screenshot of the blog on my phone and shared the explanation and the photo in a chatroom that was created for people with a similar hobby. I recently learned that the action itself was wrong, no matter what my intentions or situation was, and I’m deeply reflecting on my actions.

I sincerely apologize for causing pain to my beloved people through my rash and ignorant actions. As everything was going on, I wondered what and how I should reach out to everyone. I was so afraid as the stories kept getting bigger and bigger endlessly. During that time, I looked back at myself and realized once again just how precious it was for everyone to send me so much love despite my infinite flaws.

Words cannot convey just how much I’m sorry and thankful to everyone who have continued to send me support and love during this long period. In order for me to not disappoint those who continued to trust and wait for me until the end, and in order to go back to the Roy Kim that everyone cheered for and loved, I will walk step by step with a heavy sense of responsibility and an honest heart.

Thank you.

— Roy Kim
