K-pop sensation Jung Joon-young has been booked on suspicion of illegally filming and propagating sex videos of the women he slept with and sharing them on a messaging app, Korean state media reported on Tuesday. The allegations against the singer and songwriter came into light when Seungri, a member of the popular boy band Big Bang issued an allegation against the artiste. On Monday, a local news outlet reported that Jung had shared illegally filmed sex videos with the people he had been intimate with on a number of occasions since 2015. The singer is also reported to have allegedly victimized about 10 women in a similar manner over a period of 10 months.

Jung, who was in the United States for a shoot, reportedly abandoned his schedule and is on the way back to South Korea. “I admit to having committed all the wrongs that have been reported. I filmed women without their consent, spread (the films) in chat rooms. I did these activities without any guilt,” he said in a statement.

“I will faithfully cooperate with an investigation by police that will start on Thursday and I will readily accept whatever punishment is in store for me,” he added.

Jung Joon-young has since then, issued a public apology on Wednesday, admitting he filmed his own sex videos and shared them with acquaintances, including scandal-hit Seungri, in mobile chat groups.
