Jung Joon Young has been arrested for the filming and sharing of hidden camera videos.

He is the first celebrity to be arrested in the Burning Sun scandal. A Burning Sun employee known only as Mr. Kim has also been arrested after questioning.

Jung Joon Young had previously admitted to filming women without their consent and sharing the videos, in his letter of apology. He filmed and shared hidden camera footage and photos in a KakaoTalk chatroom that includes a number of other men, including celebrities Seungri and Choi Jong Hoon.

Jung Joon Young has also been accused of alleged ties to police who helped hide key evidence in a similar 2016 case against his ex-girlfriend. It has also been reported that Jung Joon Young was being investigated by police about hidden camera footage in November 2018 too.
