The South Korean K-Pop music industry has been hit by X-rated controversies this week. According to the Seoul Police, Jung joon Young who is now in his 30s, has been suspected of violating the sexual violence laws in Korea which prohibit the non - consensual filming as well as sharing of intimate videos.

The videos, which were filmed without the women's consent, were allegedly shared by singer Jung Joon Young, AllKPop reported.

South Korean singer Jung Joon-Young is pictured attending the 3rd Gaon chart K-Pop Awards in Seoul.

SM Entertainment was quick to release a statement on Tuesday when a member of its top boy group, EXO, was mentioned as a possible member of the group chat where the sex videos were shared.

He confessed: "I filmed women without their consent and shared it in a social media chatroom, and while I did so I didn't feel a great sense of guilt". "I kneel down to apologize to the women who appear in the videos and all those who might be disappointed and upset at this shocking incident", his statement says.

The police have been supplied with the evidence but have yet to start an investigation into Jung, SBS said.

He is the second K-pop artist to quit showbiz in recent days, with his decision coming two days after Seungri said he was retiring.

The case against Jung was discovered during a separate police investigation into K-pop superstar Seungri - who was reportedly a member of Jung's group chat.

Before the scandal, Seungri had been nicknamed the "Great Seungsby" after the protagonist of the Scott Fitzgerald novel The Great Gatsby, for his good looks, his seemingly successful business and the lavish parties he had thrown.

The alleged offences are said to have taken place in nightclubs in the Gangnam district of the city.

Despite denying the allegations, Seungri not only faces a demise of his career, he could also be jailed for up to three years as prostitution is illegal in South Korea, The Guardian reported.

On Monday, Seungri (born Lee Seung-hyun) posted a message on his personal Instagram account, expressing his intent to retire.
