Third K-pop star embroiled in sex video scandal

The police have stepped up the investigation into suspicions that Seungri procured sexual services for investors at a Seoul nightclub. At the same time, he is alleged to be part of a chat group where singer Jung Joon Young shared illicit sex videos.

"We would like to extend our deepest apologies for causing so much worry to fans and the public regarding the case of violence that occured at the club managed by Seungri and the subsequent development of events", YG said.

After being investigated by the police for acting as an agent for prostitution, Seungri had subsequently announced his retirement from showbiz on his Instagram account on Monday (March 11). He has officially been named a suspect by the Seoul police and is now undergoing investigation.

Singer Lee Seung-hyun, 28, better known by the stage name Seungri, is suspected of paying for prostitutes for foreign businessmen to drum up investment in his business.

"In the past month, I have been criticized and hated by the people, and now all the domestic investigative agencies are investigating me".

Jung said in a statement Wednesday that he videotaped such footage without the consent of the women in the clips. "I'm sorry. I'm sorry". He apologized to the victims and to those he disappointed and angered. He was allegedly among eight men on a Kakao Talk group chatroom where Jung posted his sex videos.

The focus on finding the winning song and dance formula came at the cost of the performers' "moral education", said entertainment commentator Ha Jae-keun, adding that many companies covered up problems until it was too late. Police said there were several Kakao Talk chatrooms involved but didn't elaborate. K-pop stars generally cultivate clean-cut images - and are actively promoted by the South Korean government as a key cultural export - making the scandal even more shocking.

Firefox Send - Self-destructing file sharing service

It is unclear if the charges will have any effect on Seungri's upcoming military enlistment, which is scheduled to begin on Mar 25.
