BIGBANG's Seungri booked for alleged violation of anti-prostitution law

BIGBANG's Seungri booked for alleged violation of anti-prostitution law

On March 11, a high ranking YG Entertainment employee explained to YTN Star that Seungri's retirement from the entertainment industry was decided on his own without a discussion with the agency. "As this scandal is too big, I have chose to retire".

"I feel like it is best from me to retire from the entertainment business at this point", Seungri said via his Instagram page, adding that the matter in which he was involved is so serious he had made a decision to retire.

South Korean media reported that police had confiscated Seungri's passport now that he was officially regarded as a suspect.

The nightclub came under subsequent police investigation over whether it was a hot spot for drug distribution and sexual harassment.

"For the past 11/2 months, I have been denounced by the public, every investigation agency is probing me and I have been accused as a traitor".

"As I've been branded as a "national traitor", I can not stand the fact that I'm harming others for my own sake", he added.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery was delighted with a statement result that showed his team can hold their own against the league's elite.

Band leader G-Dragon was also investigated for smoking marijuana in 2011, although he was released without indictment.

"I would like to sincerely thank all of the fans both in and out of Korea who have shown me love for the past ten years".

A petition surfaced last week calling for him to step aside after causing "unrecoverable damage to the group's reputation". He then apologized once more. Seungri of popular boyband Big Bang was charged with supplying prostitutes which he has vehemently denied.

Police have said that they would still be able to conduct their investigation while Seungri is serving in the army, and military officials have said the singer would have to submit a written request for deferment.

Seungri was due to enrol on 25 March but could ask for a deferment while he addresses the allegations.
