Seoul Police Commissioner Denies Corrupt Connection To Members Of Chatroom With Seungri And Jung Joon Young
Previously, it was reported that there had been conversations suggesting ties with the police in a KakaoTalk chatroom with Seungri, Jung Joon Young, CEO Yoo In Suk of Yuri Holdings, and others. The word “police chief” was mentioned, making it unclear as to which “chief” was involved with those in the chatroom.
The next day, former Commissioner of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency Lee Sang Won said in his official statement, “I have never worked in the Gangnam district of Seoul, and I am not acquainted with [celebrities including Seungri]. I do not even know where Burning Sun is. In Seoul, I mainly worked in the main office. I worked at the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency and the Seoul Eunpyeong Police Station, and there is no possibility of [me] having a connection with them (Burning Sun).”
Meanwhile, Seungri, Jung Joon Young, and CEO Yoo In Suk started undergoing questioning at the police station on March 14.
