It's been confirmed that Seungri acknowledged the prostitution charges during the arrest warrant exam on May 14th.

According to a report by Channel A News on May 18, Seungri admitted to the prostitution charges in court 4 days ago and said, "It's true that I had sexual intercourse with a female employee of an adult entertainment establishment and paid for the services. I'm reflecting on my actions. As a celebrity, it was hard for me to admit to the suspicions of soliciting prostitution but I never mediated prostitution for others."

Seungri denied allegations of soliciting prostitutes for the Japanese investors and the alleged embezzlement of $500 million won from Club Burning Sun.

Police are planning to forward the case to prosecution as soon as possible next week.

Following are the comments from Korean netizens:

[+240, -9] Does it make sense that you can't admit because you're a celebrity. If this was a U.S Court trial and not Korea he would've received a huge sentence...아휴

[+131, -0] Judicial prosecutors are a problem but the former govt officials are even more problematic. They have vested interests and put their interests above others if this was an ordinary person he would've been destroyed!!

[+53, -3] No matter whether he was celebrity or not he should've been under arrest

[+8, -0] a celebrity ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

[+6, -2] Do you still think you're an entertainer??....

[+5, -1] f***...Then why are you denying everything else?? just cut it out and stick to it to the end..

[+4, -0] He's retired but still claiming to be a celebrity..ㅋㅋ

[+4, -0] What is this article...

[+2, -0] Just stop now...even hearing his name now just pisses me off
