Kang Ji-hwan was arrested Wednesday on charges of sexually assaulting two women at his home in Gwangju, Gyeonggi Province.
Kang's agency in a statement said it called off all his TV appearances. It added the two accusers are staffers at the agency.
Police said Kang had dinner with agency staff and then went home with the two women for some more drinks. After they fell asleep, Kang allegedly entered their room and molested and raped them.
One of the women sent a text message to a friend saying she was trapped in Kang's home and asked her to call the police.
Kang told police he has no memory of the incident but found himself in the room with them when he regained consciousness.
