No music genre is exempt from a few controversies.
There's no question that K-pop bands have a huge fan base across the country and around the world. After all, have you seen how well ticket sales have been for BTS' latest tour in America?
But in recent days, a few K-pop musicians have made headlines after finding themselves in a few legal matters. On Tuesday, Jung Joon Young apologized to his fans and admitted to being part of a group chat where members shared illegal hidden camera footage of women.
"I write to you in shame and guilt. I, Jung Joon Young, once again realized the seriousness of this situation after returning to Korea on March 12. Although it's already late, I apologize through this letter to all the people who showed an interest in me and gave me a second chance," his statement read in part. "In regards to what is being said in relation to me, I admit to all my crimes. 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."
