K-Pop star arrested over sex tape scandal
K-pop star Jung Joon-young has been arrested over allegations he shared sexually explicit videos of women filmed without their consent.
He appeared at a court hearing yesterday where he apologised to the victims for his actions. An arrest warrant was issued a few hours later.
30 year old Jung, who was first questioned by police last week, spoke to the media after the hearing.
“I am truly sorry. I admit to all charges against me. I will not challenge the charges brought by the investigative agency, and I will humbly accept the court’s decision.”
“I bow my head in apology to the women who were victimised by my actions.”
He was escorted in handcuffs to a police station where he remains in custody.
Jung Joon-young is a South Korean singer-songwriter, radio DJ, host, actor and TV personality. He first gained recognition in Mnet’s reality television talent show, ‘Superstar K4’.
Jung is accused of being part of an online group chat that shared sexually explicit videos of women without their knowledge or consent.
Other alleged members of the group include K-Pop idol and Big Bang star Seungri and rock band F.T. Island member Choi Jong-hoon.
If found guilty of charges of sharing videos and charging for viewing the men could be sentenced to five years in prison or face a fine of up to 30 million won (842,000 Thai baht).
Jung was dropped by his management ‘MakeUS Entertainment’ and last week Seungri said he would quit the entertainment industry.
Sold over 2.6 million copies and it’s not even released. Map of the Soul, BTS.
The new album Map of the Soul: Persona has already sold 2,685,030 copies. That was in just four days up to March 17.
And it’s not even being released until April 12.
It also came to light that the same band had the second and third best selling albums in the world for 2018, according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry.
The Greatest Showman’ Soundtrack Edges Out BTS, Lady Gaga for Best-Selling Album of 2018.
It would be an understatement to say South Korea’s BTS’s comeback Album is highly anticipated. The K-pop heavyweights just broke their own record for preorders with their upcoming album.
The yet-to-be-released EP currently sits at No. 1 on Amazon’s CD & Vinyl Best Sellers. At this stage there’s no music, no cover, no music videos. Just anticipation.
Earlier this month, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry revealed that BTS snagged the second and third spot on last year’s best-selling albums around the globe. Love Yourself: Tear and Love Yourself: Answer sold 2.3 million and 2.7 million units, respectively. Both albums hit the top of the Billboard 200 in 2018.
