Police have summoned boy group member Park Yu-chun, who has been accused of rape by four different women. Police on Wednesday said Park will be questioned as a suspect.
A saliva swab will be taken to determine whether his DNA matches semen found in the underwear of the first accuser, who filed a complaint that he raped her in the toilet of a bar in Gangnam, Seoul.
But the woman has since withdrawn the charge amid claims that she and her boyfriend contacted the pop star's representatives and demanded money.
Police plan to question Park to determine whether he used force and compare his account with those given by his other accusers. All four women apparently told police that Park blocked them from leaving the bathroom.
Police are separately investigating a counter-complaint filed by Park against the first woman for bringing false charges. The 24-year-old hostess identified only by her surname Lee dropped her charges five days after reporting the alleged rape to police.
Park also accuses Lee's boyfriend of slander.
