Japanese Investor Responds To Accusations Of Seungri Mediating Prostitution Services For Him
Seungri previously hosted a Christmas party in 2015 at a luxury bar in Cheongdam neighborhood in Seoul. He had invited his celebrity friends such as Jung Joon Young and Choi Jong Hoon, and Japanese investors, which included “CEO A.”
It was previously reported that police secured evidence of Seungri, who hired about a dozen female workers from an adult entertainment establishment, taking the CEO and his group to a five-star hotel shortly after the party and mediating prostitution services.
During an interview with Channel A, however, the CEO denied these allegations. He stated, “I attended the Christmas party with my wife. The reported suspicions are not true.”
As the head of a Japanese construction company, CEO A, who invested in Seungri’s Japanese-style ramen franchise, emphasized his personal relationship with Seungri over a business relationship. He remarked, “Seungri is a younger brother I’m proud of and an eternal friend.” CEO A became friendly with Seungri after being introduced to the singer by his wife, who had previously worked in the Japanese entertainment industry.
CEO A continued, “I’ve never received [sexual services] from Seungri. The entire family has always been close.”
It was then reported by Channel A that police plan to summon CEO A for questioning. They will question the CEO about his relationship to the 17 women who were recently booked for prostitution charges that may be linked to Seungri’s 2015 party.
