Jung Joon Young Banned On MBC + Seungri And Choi Jong Hoon Temporarily Restricted
On April 12, a source from MBC revealed, “Jung Joon Young’s broadcasted appearances have been banned because he was arrested.”
The source continued, “It is hard to restrict broadcasted appearances of Seungri and Choi Jong Hoon because they are only being investigated, but we acknowledge the gravity of this matter. Thus, we have temporarily restricted the two from appearing [on MBC].”
The source further explained that the level of restrictions regarding Seungri and Choi Jong Hoon will be redetermined in compliance with the result of the ongoing investigations.
On April 9, KBS also announced that they have decided to include Jung Joon Young, Seungri, and Choi Jong Hoon on their list of people who are banned from appearing on any shows associated with the network.

Lastly, Choi Jong Hoon was booked for filming and sharing illegal footage, which he admitted to committing on April 11.
