17 Women Booked For Prostitution In Relation To Suspicions Of Seungri’s Mediation With Japanese Businessmen
The police have booked 17 women for prostitution charges that may be linked to Seungri.
Seungri has been suspected of mediating prostitution services in instances including for a foreign investor at Club Arena in 2015, for Japanese investors at a Christmas party in 2015, and at his birthday party in Palawan in 2017.
On April 25, an official at the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency said, “We investigated and booked 17 women involved in prostitution. Most of them have admitted to the prostitution charges. Of the 17 women who were booked, some were brought in on charges of prostitution and some were for prostitution mediation.”
All the women booked so far are said to be involved in allegations that Seungri mediated sexual favors for Japanese investors.
In an exclusive report from Chosun.com, it was revealed that Yoo In Suk — the former CEO of Yuri Holdings and Seungri’s business partner — admitted to police that prostitutes were called for a Japanese investor (in December 2015) and that there was a payment made for sexual services.
The police are said to have questioned 12 officials, including two from an agency that organized the Palawan birthday party and related events, and questioned 27 others regarding the Japanese investors’ visit to Korea. Yoo In Suk and Seungri were called four times each for the alleged prostitution ring.
