Yoon Kyul, the drummer of Korean indie rock band Jannabi, has been booked for assaulting a woman stated various Korean news portals.

The assault is said to have happened at a wedding reception, held at a restaurant on Saturday (Nov 20).

Korean media reported that Yoon Kyul was in a drunken state when he approached the woman, to talk to her. When she refused to speak to him, he reportedly hit her multiple times on the back of the head.

According to witnesses who were present, Yoon Kyul had also thrown things and caused a scene at the restaurant.

Yoon Kyul is currently being investigated by the police, noted the article.

The 29-year-old had joined the K-rock outfit Jannabi in 2015, before leaving for his mandatory military service in Oct 2019.

After completing his military duty in July this year, he re-joined in the band’s activities.

However, after the incident was reported, Jannabi’s agency – Peponi Entertainment – explained that Yoon Kyul’s contract with the band had expired before he started his military service and he did not renew it upon his return.

In the statement too, Peponi said this: “We personally heard about the incident from drummer Yoon Kyul himself. Because the story Yoon Kyul told us is different from what was reported in the news, we ourselves are quite baffled.

“Even before this, our agency’s staff and all the Jannabi members have always warned Yoon Kyul not to cause the kind of shameful incident described in today’s news reports. However, the incident reported in the news still took place, and so we are unable to hide our disappointment."

It’s reported that in 2019, Jannabi’s keyboardist – Yoo Young-hyun – also faced allegations of being a school bully, to which he admitted.
