Regarding the issues that are being investigated, I will be investigated diligently and reveal all the suspicions.

His agency, YG Entertainment, said on Monday that it was aware the 28-year-old singer had been charged, but it did not have any new comment.

Investigators are looking into the suspicion that Seungri used various nightclubs in Seoul's Gangnam district for lobbying and even attempted to introduce escorts to foreigners to encourage them to invest in his business ventures.

"I made a decision to retire as the issues that sparked social controversies are very big".

'I have faced heavy criticism from the public for the last month and-a-half and I'm being probed by all investigative authorities in the country, ' Seungri said.

"As I've been branded as a "national traitor", I can not stand the fact that I'm harming others for my own sake".

Via the statement, Seungri thanked the fans who supported him during his 10-year music career, adding that he was retiring to protect the honor of his agency YG and his group Big Bang. "I am done here for the sake of YG and #BigBang". He then apologized once more. The investigation took off after a media report showed a group chat via a mobile messenger between the K-pop star and people who appear to be his employees, who were taking his orders to procure sexual favors. He recently released his first solo album titled The Great Seungri and planned to start this year with a world tour.

But he isn't the only band member with a less-than-perfect track record.

Numerous greatest bands in history had to deal with controversy at one point or another.

In the meantime, the military has said that Seungri's enlistment will not be postponed and he can continue to cooperate with the investigation during his service.
