A brawl in a nightclub in Seoul, South Korea, ended with an odd twist as a famous K-pop singer, Jung Joon-young was arrested for what seems to be club scandal that involves a wide group of players. The boy band Big Bang now has a star member who has been booked for illicitly recording and sharing sex videos. This confusing and evolving story is rocking the conservative Asian country, that has the largest Christian population, in percentage terms, than any other in the Far East.
The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency said on Tuesday, that the singer secretly filmed women having sex and shared it with acquaintances, and with members of a night club. Mr Jung was questioned by police at the airport after flying from the US where he was filming a reality TV show. When he arrived at Incheon International Airport, Jung said he was sorry to the press but did not indicate the meaning. Apparently the ring of those arrested was also alleged to have drugged prostitutes and female customers who were then provided to foreign investors who were big spenders at the club.
In 2016, this singer Jung, was in the press for allegedly filming himself and his ex-girlfriend in bed. She accused him of filming their relationship without her consent. He was acquitted after she dropped the charge in this case. According to the Seoul Police there was a chat room that some singers were members of that sent nude pictures of young women, apparently filmed by members with fake names – these young singers deny they were involved. Police think differently.
Jung, 30, is a singer who became popular on a talent show in 2012, then rose to fame across Korea and Asia. Some young women have reported that he filmed them as well. There have been 10 women who now claim they were filmed over a 10 month period starting at the end of 2015. The law of sexual misconduct could bring on a fine of $26,500 and five year in prison.
