Jung was one of three male artists in a group chat room where some members shared secretly filmed footage of a sexual nature of at least 10 women, according to local broadcaster SBS. His admission came days after another K-pop star, Seungri, was charged with supplying prostitutes to potential investors as part of lobbying efforts. Seungri, a hugely successful member of boy band BIGBANG who announced his retirement from show business on Monday, was also a member of the chatroom, the broadcaster said. K-pop stars generally cultivate clean-cut images — and are actively promoted by the South Korean government as a key cultural export — making the scandal even more shocking.

He, at all of years-old, said that he would immediately retire from show business, leaving his group and permanently ceasing all entertainment activities.
