The suspect suspected of installing a camera for illegal shooting in the women's bathroom at the KBS Research Building was reportedly a freelance comedian from KBS.

According to broadcasters on the 2nd, the comedian was voluntarily present at the Yeongdeungpo Police Station the day before and was first investigated for violating the Special Act on the Punishment of Sexual Violence Crimes.

Earlier, on the 29th of last month, the police began investigating reports of the discovery of a portable auxiliary battery-shaped hidden camera in the women's bathroom in the Yeouido KBS Research Building, where there was a'gag concert' practice room and a press union office.

Police picked up hidden cameras at the scene and tracked the suspect.

There were reports that the suspect was an employee of KBS, but KBS explained through an official position that "I urgently confirmed to the police that the suspect's employee (employee) was not an employee (employee)."

The Chosun Ilbo reported on the previous day that the suspect was a male comedian A, who was active in the broadcast through the KBS bond selection in July 2018.

KBS strongly responded to this by saying, "We are going to take legal action against the Chosun Ilbo article."
