While Yoon Gyeol, who worked as a drummer in the band Jannabi, was being investigated by the police for assaulting a woman, Jannabi’s side said, “It’s regrettable that something unpleasant has happened.”
On the 24th, Jannabi’s agency Pepony Music released an official statement regarding Yoon Gyeol’s assault charges through the official SNS. Peponi Music said, “We heard about the incident through the party drummer Yoon Gyeol.” “The story we heard from the party was different from what was reported in the news, so we are also very perplexed.”
Peponi Music said, “Ever since before, all of our agency’s staff and Jannabi members have always warned Yoon-gyeol not to be unhappy as reported today.
However, we cannot hide our disappointment because the same thing as reported has happened.”
Currently, Yoon Gyeol is not an official member of Jannabi. Pepony Music said, “Before serving as a social worker, Yoon Gyeol had already terminated his contract with Jannabi due to the expiration of his contract. Although I am not a member of Jannabi by contract, I would like to express my regret once again for this unfortunate incident.”
Meanwhile, according to Channel A, the Gangnam Police Station in Seoul is investigating before being charged with assault. Yoon Gyeol is accused of assaulting a woman at an acquaintance’s wedding reception held at a pub in Apgujeong-dong, Gangnam-gu from the 20th to the next day, the 21st.
At the time, it was reported that Yoon Gyeol, who was drunk at the time, spoke to a woman at a drinking party and hit the back of the head several times when the woman did not accept it. According to eyewitnesses, it was reported that Yoon Gyeol made a fuss by throwing objects in the pub.
Yoongyeol joined Jannabi in 2015 and continued her activities. After completing his service as a social worker in July of this year, Yoon Kyul participated in the Jannabi Band as a guest.
