Police Ban Seungri From Leaving the Country + Illegal Hidden Camera Footage Was Shared in the Chat

Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency has banned Seungri from leaving the country due to the on-going investigation, which means that his status has been changed from that of a target of investigation to that of a suspect. It has also been reported that the police are trying to speed up the investigation due to Seungri's enlistment date (March 25th).

New reports from SBS funE also claim that that hidden camera footage and photos were shared in the chatroom that included Seungri and two other male singers. According to a source who has knowledge of the case, “There were approximately ten instances of hidden camera footage and photos that were illegally taken and then shared. Some of the videos and photos were shared in the chatroom that Seungri and other celebrities were a part of.

The SBS funE reporter has released more text messages, the new ones dated at 8:42 p.m. KST on January 9, 2016. The person involved was Mr. Kim, who is an acquaintance of Seungri who was helping Seungri with his restaurant business, and he also worked at Club Arena, which the police issued a search warrant for. On January 9, 2016, Mr. Kim posted a video and photos of a man and woman engaging in sexual intercourse.

According to the text messages, Seungri responded to the initial video by asking, “Who’s that?” before recognizing the man in the video and identifying him by name. The man in question was in the chatroom. In the video, the woman appeared to be intoxicated and unaware that she was being filmed. Mr. Kim then went on to post three photos of the woman that were secretly taken. The man in the video didn’t appear to be phased by the video and photos being shared, laughing it off. It appears that the man was aware he was being filmed. Mr. Kim was the one who set up the cameras, but this has not been confirmed.

According to SBS funE’s reporting, a total of eight people were in the chatroom, Seungri, two male singers, CEO Yoo of Yoori Holdings, acquaintance Mr. Kim, one entertainment agency employee, and two regular citizens. All eight people saw the video and photos that were posted, but nobody spoke up about the potential problems with the situation.
