Singer Jung Joon-young admits to sex video charges

Local broadcaster SBS reported that Jung, 29, used hidden cameras to film unsuspecting victims and shared the footage with members of a chatroom, whose members allegedly included BigBang singer Seungri.

"I admit to all my crimes", said Jung in a statement.

The K-Pop star continued: "More than anything, I kneel and apologise to the women who appear in the videos who have learned of this disgusting truth as the incident has come to light". "I will now set down all my activities as a public figure that are not self-reflection, and I will reflect for the rest of my life on my immoral and illegal actions related to the crimes". Fellow entertainers, including popular boy band BIGBANG's member Seungri, were members of the chat.

"I'll sincerely cooperate with the police investigation that will begin on Thursday morning and receive due punishment for what I have done", Jung said in a statement.

Jung also reportedly shared photographs and videos of women who were unconscious, and also footage of body parts of waitresses in hostess bars.

Meanwhile, Seungri was questioned over the weekend over allegations that he lobbied potential investors by offering them prostitution services at club in Seoul's Gangnam district. Seungri, who has been booked without physical detention on suspicion of doing so, announced he was quitting his entertainment career on Monday.

It is unclear if the charges will have any effect on Seungri's upcoming military enlistment, which is scheduled to begin on Mar 25.

Thereafter, Jung's agency MAKEUS entertainment shared a written statement whereby the K pop singer admitted himself and apologised for illicitly filming and sharing the intimate videos in certain online group chats. "We'll take all legal measures against those who are found to have committed unlawful acts (of writing, uploading and spreading the rumors) without any mercy", it said.

"We'll take all possible legal measures against those who first uploaded the rumors and spread them", it said.

Following the report, Jung's agency released a short message saying that it was checking facts with him.
