Seungri Completes Police Questioning, Asks That Everyone Wait For Results
BIGBANG’s Seungri, after expressing his wishes to cooperate with police investigations, spent the night at the police station undergoing questioning about the various controversies and allegations surrounding him.
The singer arrived at the station at 9 p.m. February 27. He said, “This morning, I submitted a petition asking for a thorough investigation into myself. Once again, I apologize for causing concern and anger with the various controversies and accusations. I will earnestly cooperate with investigations so that the truth can be revealed as soon as possible.”
Eight and a half hours later, Seungri was released. It was revealed that the singer submitted to urine and follicle tests in addition to answering questions about the drug and sexual escort service allegations.
Speaking to press on his way out of the station, Seungri said, “Questioning for all allegations has been finished. Regarding drugs, I underwent all drug tests requested by the narcotics unit. Many people are angry about the various controversies, and I will cooperate with police so that all suspicions can be dispelled.”
Closing, he said, “I ask that you wait for the results of the investigation. If the police require anything else, I will return for further questioning.”
Previously, on February 26, an exclusive news report by SBS funE revealed text messages that suggested Seungri was involved in preparing sexual escort services for business investors. The allegations were denied by Seungri, who told his agency, YG Entertainment, that the text messages were fabricated.
The report came not long after controversies arose around the club Burning Sun, which, after an assault incident brought to the public by a club patron, became embroiled in drug dealing, sexual assault, and hidden camera allegations. Seungri was also swept up in these controversies for his association with the club, although both he and the CEO stated that Seungri was simply a consultant for the establishment and not involved in management in any way.
