Male entertainers may also suffer sexual harassment

With the arrest of Kim Sung-hoon, the investigation into the suicide of actress Jang Ja-yeon, supposedly brought on by violent sexual coercion, is moving forward.

The police said one of Jang’s former colleagues who also worked for Kim’s agency told police on Wednesday that she witnessed Kim coercing Jang into serving drinks.

Kim was detained on Monday on charges of physically assaulting Jang, embezzling money she earned from her performances, threatening her and her friends and fleeing in a separate case involving the alleged sexual harassment of a male model last year.

(emphasis mine)

So it looks like male entertainers can also suffer from sexual harassment.
