Big Bang's Seungri booked on alleged sex bribery

Seungri, whose real name is Lee Seung-hyun, denied procuring prostitutes last month when a media outlet reported that he had been involved in "sex bribery".

Once known as "the Great Gatsby of Korea" for his lavish lifestyle, Seungri is now expected to face imprisonment, if proved guilty, as prostitution is illegal in South Korea. "As for the ongoing probe, I will take the investigation seriously to clear all the allegations", he said.

"I think it is about the right time to retire from show business", the 28-year-old singer said on his Instagram account, adding that he would cooperate with the police investigation into the accusation.

On Feb. 27, police questioned Seungri over the allegations.

"During the past month and a half, I have received criticism and hate from the public and been in a situation where every investigative agency in this country is investigating me". Reports also suggest that Seungri used to operate through various nightclubs in Seoul's Gangnam district and even attempted to introduce escorts to foreigners to encourage them to invest in his business ventures. Many fans were left shocked after the news surfaced but some had called for him to leave Big Bang as the scandal snowballed. "I just can not accept causing pain to those around me just for my sake".

Buffalo Bills have discussed pursuing Patriots free agent DE Trey Flowers
Flowers has been with the New England Patriots for four seasons after the team drafted him in the fourth round in 2015. He finished 2018 with 7.5 sacks and help lead the Patriots to their second Super Bowl title in three seasons.

He apologized to fans and said he could not "tolerate causing harm to everyone around me in order to save myself".

Unfortunately for him, that all had to be scrapped once he became the prime suspect in the Burning Sun investigation.

Band leader G-Dragon was also investigated for smoking marijuana in 2011, although he was released without indictment.

It is alleged that Seungri tried to obtain prostitutes for clients through a group chat on the messaging app KakaoTalk in 2015.

Seungri had been expected to start his own military service on 25 March.
