K-pop singer Jung caught in video sharing scandal

Seoul Police have booked singer-songwriter Jung Joon-young, above, for secretly filming sex videos and sharing them with fellow entertainers, including Seungri of boy band Big Bang, in a KakaoTalk group chat.

They also booked Seungri on charges of soliciting prostitution.

Jung, who returned to South Korea on Tuesday after calling off his schedule in the US, evaded reporters’ questions at Incheon International Airport.

Seungri said he is quitting show business over the scandal.

Jung, 30, is believed to have recorded the videos between 2015 and 2016 without the consent of at least ten women he slept with, police said, adding that they will question him on how the videos were filmed and shared.

If proved guilty, Jung could face jail term up to five years or a fine of $26,500 for filming a person’s body without consent and another jail term of five years or a fine of $26,500 for distributing such photos or videos without consent.

Jung’s illicit activities came to light as the investigation into Seungri’s escort services to his potential business partners expanded.

Police collected tangible evidence from a night club in Gangnam district.

Seungri has been banned from leaving the country.

His illegal activities got exposed after a man was assaulted by police officers and security of a Seoul-based club where Seungri was an executive member.

Investigators found mobile messages indicating that sexual services were provided to potential investors.
