KBS Temporarily Restricts Jung Joon Young, Seungri, And Choi Jong Hoon From Appearing On Programs
A source from KBS stated, “The deliberation committee met late last month and came to the decision to temporarily restrict their broadcasted appearances.” In compliance with the rules of the committee that deliberates restrictions on broadcasted appearances, KBS can make the decision to warn, temporarily restrict, or ban celebrities from their programs if that celebrity has taken part in immoral actions that are deserving of public criticism.
However, the restrictions placed on Jung Joon Young, Seungri, and Choi Jong Hoon are not permanent. If they are cleared of their charges or once they have spent an adequate amount of time in self-reflection, another committee hearing will be held on whether to lift the restriction.
Jung Joon Young was placed under arrest in March for filming and distributing videos containing hidden camera footage. Seungri has been booked for charges including prostitution mediation, violation of food sanitation law, spreading illegal footage, and embezzlement, while Choi Jong Hoon was booked for sexual assault from filming a sex video without consent. Eddy Kim and Roy Kim have also been booked on charges of spreading illegally taken photos.
