The South Korea Music group BigBANG had suffered a great loss as Jung Joon-young, 30, announced his immediate retirement from show business amid allegations he shot and shared sexual imagery without his partners’ consent, while sex tape scandal is not new, it becomes terrifying that people will share their own sex tapes without caring about the impact of such action on their partner.
“I admit to all my crimes,” he said.
“I filmed women without their consent and shared it in a chatroom, and did such behavior without feeling any sense of guilt,” he added in a statement released late on Tuesday.
Jung was one of three male artists in a group chat room where some members shared secretly filmed footage of a sexual nature of at least 10 women, according to local broadcaster SBS.
His admission came days after another K-pop star, Seungri, was charged with supplying prostitutes to potential investors as part of lobbying efforts.
Back in 2016, Jung was charged with filming a video with a sexual partner without her consent and knowledge, but prosecutors dropped the case for lack of evidence after she withdrew her accusation.
It is expected that Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency will question him later this week.
According to Jung he would cooperate with the police investigation
In his state “Most of all, I kneel down to apologize to the women who appear in the videos and all those who might be disappointed and upset at this shocking incident,” he said.
Noteworthy is the fact that South Korea has been battling a growing epidemic of so-called “molka” – spycam videos made mostly by men secretly filming women and sharing the illicit content with others.
But the most disturbing part of the case is that highly influential people are no exception when it comes to being part of this very disturbing reality of exploitation of women
