Police said on Thursday that it will soon summon actor Shin Hyun-jun, 41, over allegations that he assaulted his agent.

According to the Seoul Gangnam Metropolitan Police, the 30-year-old agent, just identified by his surname Jang, has filed a suit against the actor, claiming Shin assaulted him at a bar in Sangsu-dong, western Seoul.

Police said a further investigation is needed, since the statement is not enough to prove Shin`s charge.

Shin and Jang have worked together for five years. Shin made his film debut with "Son of a General" in 1990. His latest TV drama "Cain and Abel" was aired on SBS from February to April this year.
