Numerous Korean celebrities, including variety stars Lee Soo Geun and Tak Jae Hoon, are currently under investigation for suspicion of online illegal gambling, SBS reported earlier today.


Both celebrities are claimed to have bet billions of Korean won on online sports betting websites. The allegations stemmed from an investigation of a gambling ring and its brokers.


SM C&C admitted that Lee Soo Geun was currently under investigation and pledged that the star will be taking time off to reflect, including an immediate halt to all broadcast activities.


"We accept most of the allegations," they said. "He will stop his broadcasts and take some time to reflect on his actions."


"We have nothing to say even if we had ten mouths," they said. "We apologize to everyone who has supported him thus far."


Tak Jae Hoon has yet to release an official statement.

    I hope he can get treatment, reflecting won't help if you aren't able to get to the root of the problem. I know some have very difficult family situations going on they act out like this. Maybe anonymous therapy would help them find solutions to some of the problems. Maybe gambling anonymous. They are addicts and that is not going to get better by reflecting. What is going to happen to their families. I know one has a sick wife or use to. I am sad to see someone self destruct.

    It said that he was illegally gambling not that he had a gambling problem.... You don't need to have an addiction to gambling to gamble.

    Now, it's reasonable why he leaves 1N2D.

    I still remember how Lee Soo Geun was so good at guesting and betting in 1N2D season1, he even said that almost win a house by betting. I thought it was joking, but it's true now.
