SEOUL: South Korean police Monday sought an arrest warrant for a K-pop star accused of filming and distributing illicit sex videos in a burgeoning scandal that has rocked the country’s music industry, reports AFP.

Singer-songwriter Jung Joon-young last week admitted to filming himself having sex and sharing the footage without his partners’ consent.

The videos of at least 10 women were shared through mobile chatrooms in 2015 with recipients including fellow K-pop star Seungri of BIGBANG.

After opening an investigation, Seoul police said Monday an arrest warrant has been requested for Jung on charges of sexual offences using cameras, according to Yonhap news agency.

Police are also seeking an arrest warrant for another male—a nightclub employee who was part of the chatroom with Jung—for sharing sex videos.
