TV personality Go Young-wook has been booked on suspicion of sexually assaulting a schoolgirl, even as police are investigating prior charges of sex with minors.
Seodaemun district police booked Go, a former member of four-member band Roo'ra, on Thursday for allegedly groping the 13-year-old girl while giving her a ride in his car.
According to police, Go picked up the girl in the streets of Hongeun in northwestern Seoul on Tuesday afternoon and allegedly groped her thighs and other parts of her body. He allegedly told the girl that he was a music producer and could help her get into showbiz, police said.
In seven hours of questioning, Go admitted only giving the girl a ride in his car but denied groping her.
