Since our announcement of BIGBANGmusic going on hiatus we have been asked to re-think our decision. Since our situation stays the same - that this website is taking a huge amount of time, effort and money to maintain - we are sticking to our announcement and will only be updating this website sparringly. However, to keep some momentum going, we will try and retweet or post selective News on Twitter. Here we will summarize these updates in a daily digest post to ensure that our website visitors will continue to receive the most important updates in regards to BIGBANG and the guys solo endeavours.
Enjoy this update. #VIPuntilWhenever

Chosun Ilbo Reports Yoo In Suk’s Details Regarding Soliciting Prostitution With Seungri
According to the reports, Yoo In Suk admitted to the charges when he was recently questioned by the police. On May 23, the police stated that Yoo In Suk admitted to soliciting prostitution services from two women on December 23, 2015 at an apartment in Gangnam, Seoul that Seungri lived in. The reports also state that one of the women who was there was questioned by police and stated, “We went to the address given to us by Madam, and Seungri and Yoo In Suk were there. When we were each chosen by them, we went into separate rooms.”
Previously, Channel A’s “News A” had released an exclusive report on May 18 stating that Seungri had admitted to soliciting prostitution during his pretrial detention warrant questioning.
Chosun Ilbo’s report states that when asked by police why he and Seungri solicited prostitution services at Seungri’s home in 2015, Yoo In Suk is said to have replied, “We were going to call the prostitutes for Japanese business partners the next day, and we wanted to see what they would be like so we called them.” Seungri and Yoo In Suk have been charged with covering the costs of a five-star hotel for a Japanese businessman and his acquaintances for three days from December 24, 2015, as well as soliciting prostitution services for the group across two days.
Seungri is said to have paid for the approximately 30 million won (approximately $25,200) in hotel fees using a YG Entertainment company card. The women who were called to Seungri’s home are also said to have been a part of the ten women who were solicited for prostitution services at the hotel.
The police believe that Yoo In Suk has solicited such services for Seungri multiple times. According to a source from the police, “While Seungri was living in an apartment in Mapo, Seoul in 2015, he is believed to have engaged in sexual relations through prostitution services called on by Yoo In Suk. A prostitute who visited Seungri at his Mapo apartment was questioned and stated, ‘I didn’t know who had called for me, so I was surprised to see Seungri there.'”
The police are currently continuing their investigation into both Yoo In Suk and Seungri after their pretrial detention warrant requests were dismissed by the courts.
