Jihye Lee hugs the victim of the ‘Busan roundhouse kick incident’ “There is no possibility of the pants coming off on their own” (Smoking Gun)


[OSEN=Reporter Choi Yi-jeong] Singer and broadcaster Lee Ji-hye will join the KBS2 entertainment program ‘Smoking Gun’ as the new MC.

Lee Ji-hye, who is from a mixed group shop and has recently been active on YouTube, various entertainment shows, and radio, expressed her expectations for participating in the program, saying, “I appear in a lot of entertainment programs, but what I actually watch often are documentaries and crime programs.” She also said, “I’m worried she’ll get angry because she’s so immersive,”but her sharp reasoning added to the tension throughout the recording.

The first recording of Season 2 ‘Smoking Gun’, in which Lee Ji-hye appeared, was the Busan roundhouse kick incident that caused a big stir as the so-called ‘don’t ask assault’.


May 22, 2022, 5 am. The victim, Kim Jin-ju (pseudonym), lost consciousness while waiting for the elevator on the first floor of her house, and unexpectedly woke up on a hospital bed. As a result of the CCTV check, a man whom he had never met before followed him and suddenly knocked him down with a roundhouse kick and assaulted him mercilessly. Lee Ji-hye and Ahn Hyun-mo, who saw the original CCTV footage, were shocked by the shocking video.

In particular, what became an issue was whether or not there was sexual violence. On the day of the incident, the victim’s pants zipper was open and her underwear was down, but the perpetrator vehemently denied the sexual assault, saying, “I don’t remember because I was drunk.”


On this day’s broadcast, the victim appeared in person and revealed for the first time the jeans she wore on the day of the incident. The pants were covered in blood stains, as if reflecting the shock of the merciless assault that day.

Ji-Hye Lee was unable to speak due to shock, but was angry, saying, “Given the shape of the pants, there is almost no chance of them coming off on their own,” and “It seems like an obvious lie to say that the perpetrator was drunk and didn’t know.”

In addition, while listening to the story of the victim who personally searched for suspected sexual assault evidence and CCTV at the scene, he said, “I’m glad he’s alive,” and after recording, he hugged the victim and warmly comforted her.

The episode of the Busan roundhouse kick incident in which Lee Ji-hye appeared can be seen on KBS2’s ‘Smoking Gun’, which will be aired for the first time in season 2 at 10:15 pm on the 24th.
