It was later confirmed that broadcaster Joo Byung-jin (62) was charged with assaulting a man in his 40s in a sauna dressing room.

According to the police, the Mapo Police Station in Seoul completed the investigation of Joo's assault case yesterday (29th) and sent it to the prosecution.

Joo is accused of assault by raising his voice and grabbing the neck while having a conversation with victim A at a hotel sauna dressing room in Mapo-gu, Seoul last month.

It is known that Joo denied the assault charges during a police investigation.

However, the police determined that the charges were admitted based on the testimony of witnesses at the time.
