The renowned soloist and youngest member of Kpop group MAMAMOO, Hwasa, is now free from any controversy about her performance. Following all the formal complaints and reports, the prosecutors have dropped all charges against MAMAMOO Hwasa regarding her sexually provocative performance controversy. Let us delve into the following report for the complete story.
Prosecutors Drop All Charges Against MAMAMOO Hwasa and Her Provocative Performance Controversy
MAMAMOO Hwasa has been cleared of all allegations related to her controversial performance deemed sexually suggestive.
On October 31, Korean media outlet MyDaily reported an update on the MAMAMOO Hwasa performance controversy. The report disclosed an examination conducted by the Seoul Eastern District Prosecutors Office.
According to these reports, the Seoul Eastern District Prosecutors Office had examined the police’s investigation into MAMAMOO Hwasa. They reviewed the police’s investigation and decision not to forward Hwasa’s obscenity charges to the prosecution office. And in a similar tone, the prosecution office decided to close the case as well.
As a result, MAMAMOO Hwasa is now free from all charges regarding the sexually provocative performances controversy.
What REALLY Happened?
Previously, MAMAMOO Hwasa delivered a breakthrough performance on the stage of the Sungkyunkwan University festival. This performance coincided with her program, “Dancing Queen on the Road,” in which she delivered outstanding stage presence as always.
However, a shocking moment occurred during the performance when MAMAMOO Hwasa suddenly dropped her body with open legs. She then pretended to lick her fingers and supposedly rubbed them on a private body part. This was the beginning of the MAMAMOO Hwasa performance controversy.
Several incidents followed, including Hwasa removing her top to expose her bra at a Nashville concert, letting the audience directly touch her bottom, and inappropriately wearing students’ uniform in “Knowing Bros.” All of which involved issues that are deemed obscene and sexually provocative.

Formal Complaints and Police Investigations
As a result, the Students and Parents’ Human Rights Union formally reported Hwasa to the police. The union accused MAMAMOO Hwasa of an obscene performance for the one she delivered at the Sunkyunkwan University festival.
The police then summoned Hwasa in September and questioned her regarding her motives and intentions in the performances. However, since the police found no issue in the testimonies and review, they decided to drop all charges in early October.
However, the union did not accept the police’s decision and called for a higher-level review. Its representative publicly stated to the media their demand for reinvestigation from higher authorities. They believed the right method to handle the case would set a benchmark for similar future issues.
“The artist’s actions clearly meet the criteria for obscene behavior as outlined in Article 245 of the Criminal Code, which addresses public indecency. We do not agree with the current decision and request a further examination and decision from higher-level authorities, as this seems to conflict with previous Supreme Court rulings.
This matter is a significant legal issue, determining whether acts of a similar sexual nature are permissible in public settings like entertainment TV shows or university festivals. Performances that focus on or suggest sexual acts in a perverse or profane manner should indeed be considered instances of public indecency.
The public was taken aback and felt demeaned by Hwasa’s conduct. It is inappropriate for her to portray herself as a victim in this situation. What is required is self-examination and moderation, rather than adopting a victim stance.”A Representative of the Students and Parents’ Human Rights Union.
All Charges Dropped
Ultimately, when the reports reached the prosecution office, the decisions remained the same. After an extensive review and examination of the case reports, the Seoul Eastern District Prosecutors Office agreed with the police’s decision as well.
MAMAMOO Hwasa is now free from all charges against her allegedly provocative performances. Congratulations!
