Korean actor Kang Ji-hwan, 42, was arrested on Tuesday over allegations of sexual assault and rape, China Press reported.

Citing Korean daily JoongAng Ilbo, Kang reportedly brought two female assistants home for drinks.

But one of the women later texted her friends for help, saying: "I had drinks at Kang Ji-hwan's house and now we're trapped."

When police arrived, one of the women said Kang had assaulted her while she was sleeping. The second woman accused him of raping her.

When questioned by the police, the actor said he did not remember what happened after having drinks.

Kang is not new to sex scandals. In 2014, a photo of him in bed with a married Filipina was uploaded on Facebook.
