Police have finally requested arrest warrants for Seungri and Yoo In Suk in relation to the Burning Sun investigation which began five months ago.

The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency announced on May 8 that they have formally made the arrest warrant request. They have completed 17 rounds of investigation regarding the case, and the arrest warrants are for the solicitation of prostitutes to lobby foreign investors, and embezzlement of Burning Sun funds.

Other charges that are contributing to Seungri's arrest warrant are his direct involvement in the mishandling of funds for his other nightclub, Monkey Museum, and violations of the Food Sanitation Act for the same establishment.

Exact details of the case can't be revealed as they're still under investigation.
