Seungri was confirmed to have admitted to the prostitution charges during a detention trial four days ago.
On May 18, Channel A News reported the court’s legal statement that Seungri, who has denied the prostitution charges twice in the past, admitted at the court.
In a court’s arrest warrant hearing on May 14, Seungri said “It’s true that I had sex with a hostess at an entertainment establishment and paid her, but I have reflected on myself” and “As an entertainer, I couldn’t admit the charges of prostitution.”
However, he denied charges of arranging 12 sex trading to a group of Japanese investors and the daughter of a foreign football club owner and embezzling approximately 500 million won.
The police plan to send Sungri’s case to the prosecution as early as next week.
