The rookie idol was sexually assaulted on June 24 in the CEO’s car.
The Korean media got in touch with the rookie idol and conducted an interview where she revealed how she felt.
“As time went by, it kept getting harder and harder to stay quiet. It was painful and it got the point that I had to take medication to help me sleep.
The only people I saw were my parents and my doctor. I had absolutely no desire to meet anyone else. I started to fear people [after the incident.]”
