Police are going to question both singer Jung Joon-young... and BigBang singer Seungri.... who withdrew from the entertainment industry this week.
 
Hong Yoo reports.
 
Jung Joon-young admitted Wednesday that he had secretly filmed himself having sex with various women and sharing the videos with his friends through a mobile group chat.

Within the chat, Jung also bragged about his sexual relations with the women and joked about his friends' various sexual encounters.
 
Officials say he has been sharing the videos, that were recorded without the consent of the women, since 2015.
Police say at least 10 different women were in the various videos.
 
The K-pop star said he did not feel any sense of guilt for his behavior at the time, but on Wednesday he apologized to the victims.
He also said he will "put everything down" as a public figure and withdraw from all activities in the entertainment business.
Jung's activities were uncovered in the process of narrowing down the investigation of Seungri, a member of the popular boyband BigBang.
 
Seungri is accused of providing illegal escort services to his potential business partners for lobbying purposes.
Seungri, who had recently expanded his career to running several businesses such as restaurants and nightclubs, was also one of the members of the group chat at the center of the scandal.
 
Seungri will be questioned by police for a second time on Thursday.
His first appearance last month was related to suspicions ranging from drug use to buying sexual services for potential foreign investors in his businesses.
 
While Seungri initially denied all the allegations, a group chat with his business partner and employees, that was released to the media showed he had instructed an employee to arrange an illegal sexual service for a potential client.
 
Since that came to light, Seungri announced his retirement from the entertainment industry.
