A 27-year-old K-pop girl-group member, known only as Miss Shin, and her 38-year-old label CEO Mr Lee are under investigation for sexual harassment.

According to Seoul's Southern Regional Police Department, Mr Lee called a new girl group trainee into his room and requested her to take off her clothes on April 7 this year.

He also reportedly gave an explanation, claiming the actions were necessary as she needs to learn how to sell sex for when she becomes a celebrity.

Miss Shin is said to have aided in the process by agreeing with Mr Lee, even taking off her clothes first and laying down on the bed, reports allkpop.

As a result, Mr Lee and Miss Shin were arrested for harassment.

However, Miss Shin was soon dismissed for lack of motive.

The investigation is still ongoing with Mr Lee.
