Two female K-pop stars who were recently caught up in allegations of having indecent overseas sponsors have failed to appear in court on the date of their scheduled hearing.

According to the Seoul Central Court on May 20, one of the celebrities failed to attend the third round of hearings for her trial. According to her lawyer, she was out of the country at the time due to overseas activities and would not be able to attend. 

The other celebrity previously submitted documents stating that she would be absent on the day of her hearing. 
Regarding one of the celebrities, the prosecution stated, "We sent her a court summons to come testify and confirmed that she received the message. However, we are currently unable to get in contact with her." 
"We will attempt to persuade her to attend the court hearings," they added. 

Last month, four celebrities were reported on claims of overseas prostitution involving sponsors. Three of those involved claimed they were innocent, while one admitted to the charges and was fined 2 million won (approximately $1679 USD). 

The three still under investigation are an actress, an ex-girl group member, and a rookie celebrity.
