Big Bang's Seungri's lawyer spoke carefully about Seungri's innocence.
SBS funE reported that the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission was currently looking into whether Seungri's KakaoTalk messages were fake or not. The ACRC has received tens of thousands of messages from a KakaoTalk group chat room including Seungri, Yuri Holdings' Mr. Yu, and various other celebrities. The messages investigated include the messages purporting prostitution.
Seungri's lawyer Son Byung Ho said, "We will not be responding individually to the various reports about the messages. We will be responding through the results of the investigation."
The KakaoTalk evidence was reported to the ACRC instead of the police because it also included suspicious messages involving the police. If there is deep police involvement, then the KakaoTalk evidence will be directed to the prosecutor instead of the police, after the investigation by the ACRC.
