[BREAKING] Seungri suspected of receiving prostitution services himself

Seungri has allegedly received prostitution services himself, in addition to mediating escort services for investors.

On May 9, the Provincial Special Detective Division of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency revealed that they discovered that Seungri had stayed at a hotel in Seoul and received prostitution services. This happened at the time he mediated prostitution to entertain Japanese investors in late 2015.

The police have added the charges of receiving prostitution services to Seungri’s pretrial detention warrant. The previously revealed charges were prostitution mediation, embezzlement, and violation of the Food Sanitation Act.

A police source also stated, “We are looking into other suspicions of [Seungri] mediating prostitution services for investors in addition to the instances at his 2017 birthday party in Palawan and his party with Japanese investors in 2015.”

In relation to suspicions of corrupt ties with Senior Superintendent Yoon, the source said, “We have confirmed the truth using all possible methods and are in the process of legally reviewing the case. We are continuing to investigate the currently active police officers who were booked as well.”

My skin is crawling, what a piece of garbage. He's probably going to walk, and that makes me so mad. There's been complete radio silence from the other BB members about this, right? Or did I miss something somewhere?

I doubt the other members of BB have clean consciences, especially TOP. I can't imagine them saying anything.

That's very true, I have a hard time believing they're not involved in any of this/at least knew about it.

agreed, they knew i mean, it wasn't apparently that big of a secret?? maybe they did not know the full extend of it (i can truly believe this), but they knew something was up, they warned us/seungri many times

They're probably under contractual obligation to shut up (+ with most of them being in the army, ROKA probably has them on a "no comment" policy, as to not get involved at all)

Exactly, people keep get at the "menial" stuff police investigating him for, but that's because it's the only things they can pin on him, and since he is the "face" of this mess, they want him put in jail for whatever they can really hard, but it won't be for long term with this charges.
