NU’EST member Kang Dong-Ho, who was accused of sexual assault in June, 2017, finally proved his innocence.

After 10-month long legal battle, Kang Dong-Ho finally proved his innocence. On April 16, Pledis Entertainment reported, “today, we received a ruling of “no-charge” from the prosecution office. He was proven innocent.” In addition, they said, “in fact, it was proven that there was no case to begin with in the first place.”

As a result, it seems that Kang Dong-Ho suffered from something that didn’t even happen for the last 10 months. When he appeared on Mnet’s survival program ‘Produce 101,’ it was his chance to restart. Despite not making it to top 11, he came back to his old group ‘NU’EST‘ and rebooted their game. However, soon afterwards, he was accused of sexual assault.

Ever since the allegations came out, Kang Dong-Ho argued he was innocent. Therefore, NU’EST W continued to promote their music, and the agency gave him their full support. After 10 months, he is finally proven innocent.
