Police on Sunday raided a nightclub in Seoul’s posh Gangnam district as part of their probe into sex-for-favors allegations involving Seungri, a member of popular boy group BIGBANG.
The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency sent 20 investigators to Arena to collect evidence about the swirling suspicions that Seungri used various nightclubs as places for lobbying and even attempted to escort women to foreigners to encourage them to invest in his businesses.
The police recently launched their investigation into the case after local media disclosed social media messages last month that sparked allegations the 29-year-old singer attempted to buy sex services for potential foreign investors.
On Feb. 27, police questioned Seungri over the allegations. He also underwent a test over allegations of drug use. He denies all these allegations.
Last week, his agency, YG Entertainment, announced he will join the Army on March 25.
Separately, police raided the Seoul Regional Office of the National Tax Service last Friday as part of their probe into allegations of Arena’s tax evasion. (Yonhap)
