PSY summoned for questioning by police on allegations involving Yang Hyun Suk and Jho Low



Police have stated that Psy was called in for questioning involving allegations of prostitution services set up by YG Entertainment founder Yang Hyun Suk.

On June 23, the police stated that they had called in Psy at an earlier date to ask questions about allegations that Yang Hyun Suk offered to procure prostitution services for Malaysian businessman Jho Low. He is said to have been questioned till 3:30 a.m. KST on June 17.

In May, MBC’s “Straight” had reported allegations that Yang Hyun Suk had offered prostitution services to two Southeast Asian investors in July 2014. Of the two, one of the businessmen was reported to have been Jho Low.

The report alleged that Yang Hyun Suk had invited 25 women to the event, with at least 10 women brought by a woman referred to as Madam Jung. She was called into questioning on June 18 and stated, “Though it is true that some women were present at the dinner, there were no acts of prostitution.”

In an official statement, Yang Hyun Suk had said, “Though it is true that I was at the dinner, I was not aware of any prostitution services and I did not even pay for the dinner myself.” He continued to state, “I have had no further contact with the businessmen who were at the dinner,” and “Though I know Madam Jung, I don’t know anything about the women who were there.”

After the reports, suspicions were raised that the famous singer who was at the dinner with Yang Hyun Suk was Psy, who was under YG Entertainment at the time. The police are expected to use Psy and Madam Jung’s testimony, along with evidence that has been collected, to conduct their investigation into Yang Hyun Suk soon.

After the report by “Straight” in May, Psy took to his personal Instagram account to explain the situation and said, “When Jho Low and his party visited Korea as part of their Asia tour, Yang Hyun Suk and I were invited to attend [the dinner]. After eating and drinking with others who had been invited, Yang Hyun Suk and I left first.” He stated that though he had been the one to introduce Yang Hyun Suk to Jho Low, he had not been aware of any of the allegations that have surfaced.

i know he hasnt had a clean record of scandals in the past and that no man can be trusted but i do hope that this one isnt true and that this doesnt affect his label as i dont want the artists that literally just signed (and still no releases? bitch! i know eddie has an usb stick full of pentagon music waiting to hit the streets) to be ruined cause of his horny ass

For anyone with Netflix, the show Patriot Act covered Jho Low in one of its most recent episodes.

I really hope Psy isn't actually involved in this, for the sake of the artists signed to his label, especially since their contracts are still so new.

I really like Psy’s music and want to see his label do well, but tbh I have no faith. He does give me sketchy vibes, so if he falls - bye my guy. I’ll guess I’ll have to wait and see.

Psy's performed at some things with sketchy ties and involvement and he's not a rookie/some artist that has no say in where he goes so :/

so how does YHS know Madame Jung but did not know that there would be prostitutes at the dinner? what else is she known for besides providing women for prostitution services?

ok finally! i thought it was weird how psy's alleged involvement kept being ignored. if he didn't participate in this mess, good for him, but if he did then i hope he'll spill everything and will be punished.

Honestly, at this point, I think all male YG entertainers either are complicit whether in direct participation or turning a blind eyes. Well, I guess maybe not the little trainee kids in their Yg basement. Don’t #notallYGmen @me. 🤷🏻‍♀️
