CNBlue's Lee Jong-hyun admits he watched sex videos shared by Jung Joon-young

SEOUL - Will pop-rock band CNBlue's Lee Jong-hyun be the next K-pop artist to exit the industry?

For now, his label said he will take time out to reflect on his behaviour after he admitted that he had viewed sex videos*shared by singer Jung Joon-young on a group chat.

Jung, who faced a marathon police questioning that started on Thursday (March 14) and ended the next day, has already quit showbiz.

The police are probing*his secret taping of 10 women in sex acts.

According to FNC Entertainment, Lee, who is now serving military service, had told the company that he had not viewed the footage, and that it had released a statement to share that information.

But after local broadcaster SBS reported that Lee was among K-pop artists who had seen the videos, FNC spoke to him again. This time, he admitted that the report was true, and that he had made disparaging remarks about the women filmed.

The company added that he was now full of regrets over what he had done, and would spend time reflecting on how to be a better person.

In addition to Jung, Seungri has quit boyband BigBang.

He has been booked by the police for procuring sexual favours for VIP customers of his Burning Sun Club.

Two more artists - rock band FT Island's Choi Jong-hoon and boyband Highlight's Junhyung - have also left show business in the fallout from the widening K-pop scandal.

Yuri Holdings' CEO Yoo In Suk's role in chatroom revealed + Seungri reportedly involved in prostitution to Japanese executives



'Yuri Holdings' CEO Yoo In Suk's role in the controversial chatroom has been revealed.

According to the March 15th episode of SBS' '8 O'Clock News', Yoo In Suk, also known as actress Park Han Byul's husband, had a big role in Seungriand Jung Joon Young's illicit chatroom. It's reported he was the problem solver of the group as he took care of matters when chatroom members, such as Seungri, Jung Joon Young, and former F.T. Island member Jonghun, ran into trouble with the law, and the chatroom members are said to have called him "CEO Yoo." He's speculated to have helped Jonghun cover up his DUI in 2016. Yoo In Suk is alleged to have given out multiple instructions to "prepare women" for a Christmas party in 2015, stating, "We're the ones who'll re-create 'The Great Gatsby' movie. Let's call all the girls we know that day. To the point there aren't any girls left in the clubs."

Yoo In Suk told SBS reporters, "The chatroom contents were exaggerated because my younger friends wanted to show off. It's not true." However, he told a different story when he confessed to contacting a police superintendent during questioning by the police on March 14.

Seungri has also made the news for allegedly procuring escorts for overseas executives. On March 15, Channel A's 'News A' revealed Seungri provided illegal services to higher-ups of Japanese construction company K when they arrived in South Korea at the club 'Burning Sun' as well as overseas in Japan, and there are multiple photos of the him and the executives on social media. However, Seungri reportedly told police they were just friends, and he was not involved in prostitution. Both Seungri and Jung Joon Young are alleged to have taken women to Japan for the purpose of prostitution as well.

Stay tuned for updates.

A Comprehensive Look At K-Pop’s Sex Scandal

And all the artists involved.



Since the beginning of 2019, K-Pop idol Seungri, former member of influential South Korean boy band Big Bang, has been caught in a whirlwind of explosive and serious allegations involving prostitution, drugs and illicit sex videos. This has caused an uproar in the Korean entertainment industry which is well-known for having K-Pop idols uphold wholesome and clean images. Let’s take a comprehensive look at how the events unfolded around one of the biggest scandals to hit the K-Pop world in recent years, with twists and turns worth of a Korean drama.

How It All Started: Burning Sun Club Allegations

January 28

MBC’s newscast News Desk reported that a man named Mr Kim claimed that he was assaulted by a staff at Burning Sun, a nightclub reportedly co-owned by Seungri, in November 2018 as he was helping a woman who was being sexually harassed. CCTV footage revealed Mr Kim being dragged out of the club by security guards where they and a director of Burning Sun, Mr Jang, proceeded to beat him up.

Mr Kim called the police to report the incident but got arrested by the police as an assailant instead. The police report obtained by News Desk stated Mr Kim as the assailant and Mr Jang as the victim. It was reported that Seungri was present at the venue that evening.

January 29

A statement was issued by the CEOs of Burning Sun, Lee Sung Hyun and Lee Moon Ho to apologise for Mr Kim’s assault. They claimed to have fired the staff involved and promised to give their full cooperation to the investigation. Burning Sun also responded to a CCTV video of a separate incident that had been uploaded onto Youtube. It showed a woman being dragged down the hallway at the club.



She had allegedly reported the incident to the police, but no action had been taken and it was claimed that Burning Sun had deleted the footage. The club denied the accusations and provided more footage to support their claim that the woman in question was removed from a VIP table for being a nuisance and that she had assaulted their staff instead. Mr Jang also spoke to news outlet E-Daily to apologize for the assault on Mr Kim and shared footage that showed Mr Kim approaching multiple female guests and there were complaints about his behaviour. He also stated that Seungri was not at the club on the day of the incident and in fact was someone the staff did not see often.

January 30

A Burning Sun representative told daily newspaper Kyunghan Shinmun that Seungri was involved in the club’s management but was not the owner. However, newscast KBS News reported that Seungri had indeed been a director but resigned from the position the week before. They went on to report testimony from a former Burning Sun employee regarding a viral video that showed a woman getting sexually assaulted in a bathroom. The employee claimed that a VIP room in the club has a separate bathroom and the lights in the video appeared to be the same as that bathroom. It was also suggested that illegal drug use took place in the VIP rooms.

January 31

CEO of Seungri’s entertainment agency YG Entertainment, Yang Hyun Suk, released an official statement stating that he had confirmed with Seungri that he was not present at the club at the time of Mr Kim’s incident and that he had resigned from his director position in compliance with military laws so as to prepare for his upcoming military enlistment.

February 1

New video footage emerged, showing Mr Kim harassing the woman that he claimed to have been saving. The woman accused him of sexually harassing her and the police summoned him for questioning.

February 2

Seungri addressed the assault issue via Instagram and stated that he was not present during the incident. He was shocked by the footage and does not condone the use of violence. He clarified that he as director at Burning Sun, he was only in-charge of promotions and was not involved in the club’s operations and management.

Meanwhile, news agency Dispatch claimed to have obtained chats that revealed group chat conversations between Burning Sun staff discussing tactics to bring girls into the VIP rooms, and that staff members were able to see VIP customers having sex in the rooms via CCTV. Seungri was not part of these conversations.

February 4

Burning Sun CEO Lee Moon Ho issued a statement, apologising to Seungri for involving him in this controversy. He stated that as they were long-time friends, he had asked Seungri to be a consultant and he had only helped in contacting foreign DJs for the club and was not involved in the actual management. Burning Sun also promised to remove the VIP rooms and increase the number of CCTVs to improve the club environment.

February 15

The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency conducted raids on Burning Sun and the Yeoksam District police unit. Original hard disk CCTV footage, body cam footage, data related to alleged police collusion and drugs and sex crimes suspicions at Burning Sun were confiscated.

Seungri apologised to fans at his Seungri 1st Solo Tour – The Great Seungri Final in Seoul concert, which was to be his last concert tour before he enlists in the military this year. He feels sorry for disappointing many people due to his negligence and vowed to think and act more carefully as a celebrity.

February 17

Burning Sun shut down as the investigation of drug-dealing expanded to more clubs in the Gangnam area.

February 20

Police started to investigate Burning Sun executives including Seungri. Staff were summoned for questioning on Seungri’s role at the club.

Seungri: Solicitation of Prostitution Allegations

February 26

News outlet SBS funE uncovered text messages that allegedly showed Seungri’s involvement in offering prostitutes to potential investors for his businesses in 2015. The conversation involved him, his business partner CEO Yoo of his investment company Yuri Holdings that he was then preparing to establish, and an employee. The messages implied that girls were hired to entertain a foreign investor at another prominent night club, Club Arena. Within a few hours of the report’s release, YG Entertainment issued a statement stating that upon checking with Seungri, they confirmed that the text messages were fabricated and untrue and they would follow up with legal action. Yuri Holdings also made a statement that they believed someone with a grudge against Seungri had made up the text messages. The Seoul Police Department launched an investigation into these claims against Seungri.

February 27

The journalist from SBS funE confirmed that the text messages were not fabricated and were only edited to omit crude expressions. Seungri submitted himself to questioning by the police and took urine and follicle test to test for drugs and was released eight-and-a-half hours later. He appealed to the public to wait for the results of the investigations.

February 28

The first round of drug tests proved negative. Seungri cancelled all upcoming activities and stated that he would cooperate fully with investigations.

March 1

SBS funE reported that the whistleblower had submitted the text messages of Seungri to the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission instead of the police because the messages suggested a deep connection to the police.

March 4

A source from the Seoul Metropolitan Agency stated that they are aware that the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission was in possession of the text messages and the police had formally requested for their cooperation.

March 8

Seungri confirmed his military enlistment date as an active-duty soldier as March 25. News program MBC News released internal Burning Sun documents showing that Seungri had made an initial investment in the club and he was listed as one of the four executive directors. He was also listed as a corporate promoter which is used to refer to someone who worked on the formation of a company and Yuri Holdings, of which he was co-CEO of, was also a shareholder in the club.

March 10

Seungri was booked on charges of charges of violating South Korea’s Acts on Pimping and Prostitution and its Punishments and has marked him as a suspect. The police began searching Club Arena for information on the pimping allegations. The second round of Seungri’s drug tests proved negative. Police confirmed that multiple celebrities were also in the group chat that were used by Seungri to allegedly solicit prostitution and some of them had been summoned for questioning.

Illicit Sex Videos Allegations

March 11

SBS funE once again accused Seungri of being involved in a group chat of eight people including two male singers and CEO Yoo, and a hidden camera video was shared in the chat room. Based on text messages sent in the group chat in January 2016, a video and photos were shared of a man having sex with a woman and Seungri had watched it and recognised the man in the video. It’s alleged that the woman was unaware that she was being filmed and there were other hidden camera videos and photos. Seungri announced his retirement from the entertainment industry as he wanted to protect the honour of YG Entertainment and Big Bang as the issues caused by him were too serious. Police prohibited him from leaving the country.

Newscast SBS 8 O’Clock News identified one of the celebrities in the group chat to be singer and variety star Jung Joon Young. It was reported that he had shared illegal video footage with his friends several times and they had so far confirmed with 10 victims that they had been filmed illegally. Joon Young’s agency MAKEUS Entertainment stated that the singer did not confirm nor deny the reports and they would wait for him to return to South Korea from the United States where he was filming a variety show, before issuing an official statement.

March 12

Joon Young halted filming in the United States and returned to South Korea. The police booked him on charges of violating the Sexual Violence and Protection Act and prohibited him from leaving the country. All of his schedules have been cancelled and he will be edited out of unaired episodes of his variety shows that have already been filmed. The Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission transferred the text messages to the Supreme Prosecutor’s Office after their internal analysis.

Involvement of More Celebrities and Police Bribery Allegations

March 13

Joon Young admitted to his crimes in a letter of apology and stated that he would withdraw from the entertainment industry. MAKEUS Entertainment terminated their contract with him. YG Entertainment also officially terminated Seungri’s contract. News program YTN report reports that Choi Jong Hoon, member of rock band F.T. Island, had shared information in the group chat with Seungri and Joon Young, implying he had made use of police connections to cover-up a drink-driving incident from February 2016.

SBS 8 O’ Clock News also reported on alleged text messages within the group chat discussing payments made to the police as cover up for Jong Hoon’s incident. The current Korea Police Commissioner General announced there would be an investigation into these allegations. Jong Hoon’s agency, FNC Entertainment, confirmed the drink-driving incident but stated he has no ties to the police. Meanwhile, Jong Hoon would suspend all activities while cooperating with the investigation.

March 14

K-Pop boy band HIGHLIGHT member Yong Junhyung admitted to having seen and commented on Joon Young’s illegal footage in a private chat between the two of them although he was never part of the group chats. He apologised and stated that he would withdraw from HIGHLIGHT to prevent further harm being done to his fans and members.

Seungri, Joon Young and CEO Yoo turned up at the Seoul Police Agency for questioning. The Commission General announced a plan to do an internal investigation of corruption in the police force as well as a nation-wide investigation of nightclubs with regards to drugs, sexual assault, the filming and distribution of hidden camera footage, and police connections. However, the current case involving Seungri has been transferred to the Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office. Jung Hoon also announced his retirement and withdrawal from F.T. Island.

Media outlet Sisa Journal reveals messages dating from 2014 that showed Seungri engaging in gambling activities and soliciting of prostitutes to his business partner then. It is illegal for Korean citizens to engage in gambling activities overseas.

SBS 8 O’ Clock news identified another celebrity involved in the group chat as rock band CNBLUE’s Lee Jong Hyun.

He is also an artist under FNC Entertainment. Jong Hyun has been accused of filming women secretly and sharing the footage. Chat transcripts in his personal chats with Joon Young also showed him asking the singer to introduce him to girls to allegedly sleep with.

Investigations are ongoing.

Video Of BIGBANG Members Talking About Seungri’s Future Resurfaces

“I bet they knew..”

Back in 2017, the five BIGBANGmembers sat down to talk about what their lives would be like in 2022 (5 years after the video was released). Fans were shocked to find how many of their predictions came to be true.

In the video, Daesung jokes as if they haven’t met Seungri in a while. He claims BIGBANG has been promoting as a 4-member group.

Taeyang then asks him, “I heard your news. Is that problem solved?”

He goes on to predict that Seungri would be banned from the country for criminal acts.

Seungri then proclaims, “Don’t make me a criminal!”

Seungri had also predicted back then that Taeyang would be married. Sure enough, Taeyang married his wife Min Hyo Rin a year after this video.

As the video resurfaced in light of Seungri’s scandal, fans are shocked to see how closely accurate the members had predicted their future

SBS Reports Former Yuri Holdings CEO’s Influential Role In Chatroom

SBS’s “8 O’Clock News” has revealed additional information about Yoo In Suk, the former CEO of Yuri Holdings.

On the March 15 broadcast of the show, SBS reported that Yoo In Suk was an influential figure in the chatroom including the former CEO, Seungri, Jung Joon Young, Choi Jong Hoon, and four other individuals.

During the broadcast, SBS stated, “The key figures in the chatroom are Seungri, Jung Joon Young, and CEO Yoo of Yuri Holdings. Yoo In Suk, who is known for being Seungri’s business partner, has been revealed to be friendly with a police chief. The fact that his actual role was being the problem solver [of the group] has come to light.”

According to the report, Yoo In Suk gave out various instructions to “prepare women” in the chatroom, and stated in 2015 while preparing a Christmas party, “We’re the ones making the ‘The Great Gatsby’ film. Let’s call all the girls we know that day. To the point where there aren’t any girls left in the clubs.” Choi Jong Hoon and other members of the chatroom also referred to Yoo In Suk as “CEO Yoo,” revealing his powerful position even among the other members. He was also revealed to have helped cover up news of Choi Jong Hoon’s drunk driving incident back in 2016.

When SBS met with Yoo In Suk before the broadcast aired, he stated, “The contents [of the chatroom] were overblown due to my younger friends’ desires to show off. It’s definitely not true.” His position changed, however, when he admitted during his police investigation held on March 14 that he had contacted a senior superintendent officer.
