MANILA, Philippines - Korean singer Go Young Wook was arrested for allegedly sexually molesting a 13-year-old girl.
Go, who was member of the Korean hip hop group Roo'ra, was taken into custody after a Seoul court issued a warrant of arrest against him.

The girl filed a complaint against Go last December, saying that the singer molested her inside his car. Go allegedly approached the minor and told her that he could help her enter showbiz.
The arrest warrant was issued by the court to prevent Go from destroying any evidence or fleeing.
A CCTV footage which allegedly showed the girl entering Go's car is in the hands of authorities.
Go apologized for the controversy and vowed to cooperate with the police in the investigation.
This is the second time that Go faced charges of sexual molestation.
In May last year, Go was investigated by the police for allegedly raping an 18-year-old girl in his condominium.
The singer saw the girl during a taping of a cable TV program and immediately got her phone number from the producer.
He offered to help the girl to become a star. The singer had sexual relations with the girl twice in March and April in his condominium unit.
Two other alleged victims came forward to file a complaint against Go.
He apologized but denied the charges. He was not charged for lack of evidence.Link to my original article on Manila Bulletin online: http://www.mb.com.ph/articles/389302/singer-arrested-for-sexual-molestation
