Police have booked Seungri, Jung Joon Young and Choi Jong Hoon on additional charges of sharing illegally taken videos and photos.

According to police, Seungri has been booked for spreading illegally taken photos. Police have also confirmed three more instances of Jung Joon Young spreading illegally taken footage, which they will be forwarding to prosecution to be added to the original eight instances he has currently been charged with. Jung Joon Young is currently in a detention centre at Jongno Police Station awaiting trial. 

Choi Jong Hoon has been charged with one additional instance of sharing illegally taken videos and photos. He has already been booked for two instances of the same nature. In his case, police said: "We will have to continue with the investigation to figure out who filmed it, but the individual himself (Choi Jong Hoon) acknowledged the act. This is different from the videos Jung Joon Young shared".

Seungri is also under investigation for suspicion of violating anti-prostitution laws, while Choi Jong Hoon has been booked for bribing a police officer after a drunk driving incident in 2016.
