The South Korean military court has reached a conclusion for former BigBang member Seungri’s involvement in the infamous sex scandal that rocked the K-pop industry.

Allegedly partaking in the facilitation of prostitutes that ultimately funneled into avenues that involved investors, nightclubs, embezzlement, bribery, and illegal gambling, the 31-year-old Korean star was thrown to the center of the ordeal after 2019’s Burning Sun scandal due to his 20 percent stake in Burning Sun Entertainment.

The court revealed that Seungri will now be facing three years of jail time and a ₩1.15 billion KRW ($$990,000 USD) fine. Seungri continues to stand firm on his innocence, reiterating that it was his business partner that initiated all the illegal activities. This statement was regarded as an attempt to “shift blame” during the hearing, which ultimately led to the final verdict.
