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.
BIGBANG’s T.O.P is wrapping up his military service!
On May 21, Yongsan District Office revealed, “Choi Seung Hyun’s [T.O.P’s given name] discharge date is July 8. Due to the reduction regulation that was applied to public service agents starting from last year, his service period has been shortened by about 27 days.”
Originally, T.O.P’s discharge date was set to the beginning of August, but due to the new reduction regulations implemented in 2018, his service period has been shortened.
On July 27, 2018, the government revealed Defense Reform 2.0, which shortens the military service period. In the case for public service agents, the reform has been applied gradually in steps starting with those who started their service on October 3, 2016.
Although T.O.P began his service in February of 2017 as a conscripted policeman, he lost his position due to his marijuana case. On January 26, 2018, T.O.P was transferred to the Yongsan District Office to resume his duties as a public service worker.
Although reports surfaced suspecting that T.O.P had been receiving special treatment while serving his mandatory military duties, the Yongsan District Office fully denied the reports with a thorough explanation, confirming that T.O.P submitted all the required documents needed to prove the validity of his reasons for taking sick leave.
