BIGBANG‘s Seungri has officially been considered a suspect in the Burning Sun scandal, as the police have booked him without detention for soliciting prostitution.
The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency has announced that they have deemed that Seungri is a suspect in this case, and will begin launching a full investigation.
“In an attempt to get to the bottom of the case and attempt to clear Seungri of the suspicions surrounding him, we have booked Seungri as a suspect for the allegations of him ‘soliciting prostitution’ in order to receive a search warrant for the club ARENA, which is accused of allowing prostitution inside its venue.

Earlier today, over 20 police and digital forensics agents searched and seized the club ARENA, looking for any evidence that may be related to the case. Leaked Kakaotalk messages pointed to ARENA being the meeting point for rich investors, both Korean and foreign, to meet the potential girls.
Seungri’s military enlistment date is scheduled to be on March 25. Stay tuned for more updates on the Burning Sun scandal, and Seungri’s enlistment.
