Sex chatroom world
The popstar has denied the allegations and claims the texts were fabricated, but has retired from Big Bang and the entertainment industry, ahead of his enlistment in the army at the end of the month.Seungri said in a statement: ‘At this moment, it seems like it would be good for me to retire from the entertainment industry.After Seungri’s retirement announcement, Jung Joon Young was exposed as one of the celebrities in the chatroom, where he sent hidden camera footage of women involved in sex acts.The 2 Days and 1 Night star was accused of sending illegally recorded footage on 11 occasions.
Out of all, I want to apologise to the women who were harmed by my acts, to those who went beyond disappointment and felt anger, and to those who made me a public figure and cared for me.’ Highlight star Yong Jun-hyung spoke to police after admitting to watching an illegally recorded video in a chatroom.
Seungri – known as the Great Gatsby of K-pop thanks to his lavish lifestyle – has not been charged, but is being investigated for ‘sexual bribery’, following a report accusing him of ‘supplying prostitutes to potential investors at the club and his Yuri Holdings company’.
A Kakao Talk exchange allegedly between the popstar and three others in 2016 appeared to show Seungri arranging female escorts to serve potential investors.
In a text allegedly sent by Seungri, it said: ‘Pick the ones who’ll sleep with them without a fuss.’ It was also alleged that Seungri used a Kakaotalk group to organise sex workers to serve foreign investors at nightclub ARENA in Gangnam.
It has been alleged that there were a number of celebrities in this chatroom.
A number of K-pop stars are being investigated as part of a chatroom scandal which has seen Big Bang star Seungri and singer and TV personality Joon Jung Young leaving the entertainment industry.
