The prosecutors’ office has rejected allegations that boy group JYJ’s Junsu has conducted fraudulent business activities, his lawyer said Tuesday.
Yoo Hyun-joo, a lawyer from KeumSeong, released the statement on Tuesday, saying, “The prosecution dropped the charges against Junsu,” adding, the prosecution charged the accuser, surnamed Kim, without detention for making false claims.
In November, two construction companies, in charge of building Toscana hotel located on Jejudo Island, sued Junsu for fraud. They said the singer borrowed money from them after writing promissory notes but did not repay.
Junsu’s agency refuted their claims, saying, “Although it is true that he wrote the promissory notes, he did it only for accounting purposes.”
The singer’s agency then countersued the companies for embezzling the materials cost and defamation.

[NEWS] 151117 JYJ’s Junsu in legal battle over his hotel in Jeju Island
There’s quite an issue with Junsu’s hotel in Jeju Island. Junsu was previously accused by two construction companies of failing to pay them 5 billion won (about 4.5 million U.S. dollars) for his Toscana Hotel in Jeju Island.
Last week, that was revealed to be a false accusation, and the lawsuit was dropped. But there’s more to the story.
An official report by Junsu’s lawyer on November 17 KST stated that back on November 13, it was officially decided by the prosecutor that Junsu was falsely accused, and the case was dropped.
In fact, not only did Junsu pay all of the fees for the construction of his Jeju Island building, but he had actually overpaid.
The lawyer added, “Regarding the civil case that is still left, the Toscana Hotel evaluated that the accuser received their construction fee, and even received an excess payment of 8 billion KRW (around $6.8 million U.S. dollars). The constructor unfairly embezzled the construction fee, and we will bring up a strong, legal counterclaim.”
