Himchan’s 10-Month Sentence Upheld

February 13, 2023 | 602 Visits


On February 9, 2023, the Seoul Central District Court heard former B.A.P member Kim Himchan’s appeal stemming from a 2018 sexual assault case. Kim, who was initially sentenced to 10 months in prison and 40 hours of sexual violence education courses back in February 2021, admitted to the charges in April 2022 during one of his appeal cases.

For what is expected to be the last in the appeals process for this particular case, the Seoul Central District Court upheld the initial punishment of 10-months in prison. In addition to the prison stint, Kim must complete 50 hours of sexual violence education courses and pay an undisclosed damages settlement to his accuser.

While the initial case appears resolved, Kim is also wrapped up in another case of accused sexual molestation of two individuals. The alleged accusations stem from an April 22, 2022 incident in Yongsan. The accusers claim Kim, while drunk, groped them without consent and took one of their phones. A court date for this purported incident has yet to be released.

In 2020, following his single “Reason for My Life,” Kim was indicted without detention following a drunk-driving incident in Dosan-daero, Gangnam District, Seoul. Kim’s driver’s license was ultimately revoked.
