A 40-year-woman, who was a volunteer at a community cultural center to teach people how to sing, underwent an abortion after being forced to have sex with an entertainment agency CEO.
She had dreamed of becoming a singer when a popular “trot” singer called on her at the cultural center in February 2010, and introduced her to the CEO of the agency, identified as Ahn.
But the CEO extorted 200 million won from her up until June last year, saying that he would get her appearances on TV show, police said Tuesday.
Ahn, asking her to provide sexual services, hit her with his fist and kicked her, which left her with injuries requiring six weeks of medical treatment, according to a police officer.
She was allegedly raped by him in March 2010. He enticed her to a remote harbor in Weolgot, Gyeonggi Province. He drugged her with sleeping pills before assaulting her.
He took pictures of her naked and threatened to send them to her husband if she refused to meet his demands, the officer said.
The would-be singer, only identified by her family name Park, finally reported him to police in December last year. The man was arrested on Feb. 22 by detectives on a stakeout.
