Myung-Whun Chung

Next Thursday, Myung-Whun Chung, the Seoul Philharmonic’s former music director, has to appear at the Seoul Central Prosecutors’ Office. The orchestra’s former CEO, Hyun-Jung Park, who was fired in 2014 over allegations of sexual and verbal harassment, has filed a lawsuit against Chung and his wife, on charges of defamation. Chung who has also been under investigation over embezzlement, had his lawyers issue an official statement. “This investigation will reveal the truth and I hope that this situation will be resolved as soon as possible,” Chung says in the statement. “Starting in August, I have a number of scheduled concerts, so I will return home once again and hope that I will be able to return to everyone with some good performances.” His lawyers want to « take strict actions against all groundless slander and spreading of false accusations.”
