"I filmed women without their consent... I didn't feel a great sense of guilt"
Kpop star Jung Joon-young has quit the music business amid an industry sex scandal.
The BBC reports that Kpop star Jung Joon-young has quit the music industry following a growing sex scandal.
Jung, 30, is accused of secretly filming himself and others have sexing with 10 women and sharing the footage in a group chat in 2015-2016.
The news comes just after BIGBANG singer Seungri was dropped by YG Entertainment for his involvement in the videos.
Jung has admitted to the charges in a statement. “I admit to all my crimes,” he said, adding that he will quit the music and TV industry. “I filmed women without their consent and shared it in a chatroom, and while I was doing so I didn’t feel a great sense of guilt.”
The Lover star apologised to his fans and the women involved.
“Throughout the rest of my life, I will repent on my immoral and illegal acts that constitute crimes,” he said. “I will faithfully cooperate with an investigation by police that will start on Thursday and I will readily accept whatever punishment is in store for me.”
In 2016, one of Jung’s ex-girlfriends accused him of filming a sexual encounter without consent but eventually withdrew it.
