SEEU – South Korean police on Monday demanded an arrest warrant for the K-pop star charged with shooting and distributing illicit sexual videos in a rising scandal that shook the country's music industry.

Singer-songwriter Jung Joon-ioung admitted last week that he had recorded himself with sex and shared footage without the consent of his partners.

Videos of at least 10 women are shared via mobile chat rooms in 2015 with recipients, including a K-pop starring Seungri from BIGBANG.

After opening an investigation, police in Seoul announced on Monday that Jung has been asked for a warrant for sex offenses through cameras, according to Ionhap.

Police are also seeking an arrest warrant for another man, employed in a nightclub that was part of a chat room with Jung, for sharing sex spots.

The 30-year-old musician, Jung, announced a retreat from the entertainment industry last week, and the scandal has seen two other singers quit after they admit they were watching illegal videos.

South Korea is struggling with an increasing epidemic of so-called "silences", or video clips, mostly women, secretly filmed by men in schools, toilets and offices.

It is believed that revenge of porn videos of sexual intercourse without partner consent – equally widespread.

Thousands of women protested last year in Seoul on several occasions with regard to video footage as part of the rising # MeToo movement of the country.
