2019/03/22 | 602 views | Permalink

On March 21st SBS News at 8 revealed more details as to the bribery allegations against Choi Jong-hoon. The investigation stems, as expected from the 'Burning Sun' chat logs.

Back in February 2016 he made posts in one of the rooms mentioning the loss of precious objects and making reference to a 2,000,000 won (2,000 dollar) payment. He also asks other persons present for the incident not to talk, all while maintaining an oddly boastful tone.

Further investigation revealed that Choi Jong-hoon ran afoul of a police patrol. Because Choi Jong-hoon tried to evade them, the police were alerted to his supicious behavior and moved to apprehend him.

In light of revelations concerning the drunk driving incident and the ensuing bribery Choi Jong-hoon had to leave his band FT Island. His agency, FNC Entertainment, has also abandoned him.
