On January 14th it was reported that Seungri and former CEO of Yuri Holdings, Yoo In Suk, have been charged with particular violence.
The additional fee was announced that day during Seungri’s seventh hearing in the Ground Operations Command General Military Tribunal in Yongin. While Seungri was having a drink with acquaintances in Gangnam on December 30, 2015, according to the military prosecutor’s office, he got into an argument with a customer who opened the door to the room he was in. Meanwhile, a mutual argument with another customer began. Seungri talked about it in a group chat that included Yoo In Suk, who called a well-known gang member at the time.

He was before accused on charges such as buying prostitution services, mediating prostitution, embezzlement, violation of the law on increased punishment, etc. of specific economic crimes (an additional fee for embezzling an amount exceeding a certain number), violation of the law on food hygiene, habitual Gambling, Violation of Foreign Exchange Transactions Act and Violation of Law on Special Cases Related to Punishment, etc. of sexual crimes.
