Actor Park Si-hoo on Monday filed a suit against an aspiring actress who accuses him of raping her. On Feb. 15, the 22-year-old woman reported she lost consciousness after drinking alcohol with Park and realized she had been raped when she woke up.
"Park held back from filing a suit against the woman out of consideration for her," his lawyer claimed Monday. "But it seems unnecessary now."
He said the actor will present himself for further questioning "whenever necessary.” He added the defense team will "keep gathering evidence to clear his name."
Park repeatedly failed to turn up for questioning and finally appeared on Friday.
Park has also filed a defamation complaint against an acquaintance of the alleged victim who supported the rape claim in an interview with a weekly magazine.
