One of the group chats included Seungri of BigBang, who is now under investigation for brokering prostitution for investors.

Earlier Thursday, fellow K-pop star Jung Joon-young, 29, came to the police station to be questioned about an allegation that he secretly filmed himself having sex with women and then shared the footage with friends in private group chats.

Highlight's entertainment label, Around US Entertainment, said in a statement that Yong was "now in a deep state of reflection for his past inappropriate actions, as well as for the disappointment that he undoubtedly caused many due to his immorality". "I'll faithfully undergo an investigation and give honest answers" to police questioning.

Seungri arrived in the afternoon for his second questioning after first being investigated on February 27 for charges including violating the law on the punishment of prostitution mediation.He remarked, "I once again bow my head in apology to all citizens of the nation and the people who have received harm because of me". "I'm sorry. I'm sorry".

Jung on Wednesday issued a statement saying he admits to having recorded footage without consent from the women on the clips and that "I get down on my knees and apologise" to the victims and all others disappointed and angered over his acts.

The latest scandal has put the local entertainment industry under fire, drawing criticism from a public dismayed at the news and creating a swirl of other rumors and speculation about who the women in Jung's videos might be. Police said there were several Kakao Talk chatrooms involved but didn't elaborate.

Health officials link measles outbreak to lack of vaccinations
However, despite the risks, there is a growing anti-vaccine sentiment in the United States and around the world. Measles is caused by a virus that can spread through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes.


But now that a third head has rolled, the question on every K-pop fan's lips is: Whose scalp will the scandal claim next?

Since its debut in 2006, Big Bang has attracted huge, loyal followings in Asia and around the world.

Lee Suh-yoon, a writer for the The Korea Times, a daily newspaper, also suggested that "these recurring outbursts of gender-related crimes can no longer be attributed to ethical lapses of a few select individuals, meaning it's time to point the finger at society, culture and an industry that overlooks and encourages such horrifying behaviour". Forbes magazine reported in 2016 that the band took home $44 million in pretax earnings in the previous year.

South Korea has been fighting an epidemic of "spy cam porn" in recent years. Some suicides have occurred among celebrities in the industry.

By law, the ongoing police investigation can not prevent Seungri from joining the army unless he's formally arrested before March 25 or voluntarily requests a delay of his enlistment. The two are scheduled to appear for police interrogation on Thursday.
