K-pop star Jung Joon Young quits over sex videos

Seungri from boy band Big Bang arrives at a Seoul police station for questioning

File of Jung Joon-young performing. "I, Jung Joon Young, once again realized the seriousness of this situation after returning to Korea on March 12".

The 29-year-old is also linked to a police investigation into Burning Sun, a nightclub where he was a public relations director, where staff are alleged to have used hidden cameras to film women and used alcohol and drugs to sexually assault them.

According to a translation by the BBC, Seungri, whose real name is Lee Seung-hyun, also wrote: "I have faced heavy criticism from the public for the last month and-a-half and I'm being probed by all investigative authorities in the country".

It came after South Korean broadcaster SBS reported allegations that he had filmed his own sex videos without his partners' permission, and shared them with friends in a mobile chat group during 2015-16.

This is not the first time Jung has been accused of filming a sexual encounter without consent.

As prostitution is illegal in South Korea, Seungri could find himself in hot water if the accusations are proven to be true.

It is unclear if the charges will have any effect on Seungri's upcoming military enlistment, which is scheduled to begin on Mar 25. "In a statement, the talent agency said that they would "[honour] Seungri's request to terminate his exclusive contract" and that they wanted to "apologise for the concern we have caused many people, including the fans, due to the numerous suspicions and controversies".

"Following Seungri's announcement that he will retire, YG made a decision to accept his request to end the exclusive contract".

According to Soompi, Jung said in a statement of apology that he was admitting to "all my crimes".

Singer Jung Joon-young, 30, announced Tuesday that he's retiring from showbusiness amid the accusations that he shot and shared the illicit footage with others without his partner's consent, the AFP reported. "I kneel down to apologize to the women who appear in the videos and all those who might be disappointed and upset at this shocking incident", his statement says.

On March 13, Chinese media outlet Sina released an interview with Joey Jung.
