Since former member of Blackie’s Teenage Club <我愛黑澀會> Da Ya (大牙) accused Blackie Chen (陳建州) of sexual harassment, a second victim has stepped forward. On June 28, Taiwanese model Yuan Kuo (郭源元) alleged Blackie of sexually harassing her twice. The first time, he hugged and forced her onto his lap while trying to get her to kiss him in his office. The second time was during Christine Fan’s (范瑋琪) pregnancy in their home.
Under the pretense of wanting to gift her clothing, Blackie had invited Yuan Kuo to his office. When she arrived, it turned out to be his home. He suddenly hugged her from behind and threw her onto the bed. She was filled with fear during their struggle, “I could feel his groin and it was sickening. My vision was very blurry…which reminded me that I was crying at the time.” After seeing this, Blackie allowed her to go home.
Yuan Kuo shared her fears and the torment she put herself through before deciding to speak up, “I tried to comfort myself for a long, long time. Speaking up during a time when my life is stable means that I would have to relive my trauma and also invite in the media and the hurtful, thoughtless judgement and questioning from people who treat this as a fun after-dinner topic.”
Yuan Kuo admitted she does not have concrete evidence anymore after switching cell phones, but chose to speak up because she “did not want Da Ya (大牙) to stand alone.” Yuan Kuo’s statement received nearly 300,000 likes on social media. Noting it is human nature to want the villain will be brought to justice but no one wants to be the instigator, Yuan Kuo empathized with Da Ya but also admired her courage. Other than standing up to support her, Yuan Kuo tried to comfort her as well, “Being the first one isn’t easy and it must have been painful. Thank you Da Ya.”
Blackie replied through his manager stating that they “will no no longer be responding to unwarranted allegations.”
