Jung Joon Young (30) and FT Island's Choi Jonghun (29) have been found guilty of sexual assault and distributing hidden camera sex videos without consent.
On the 29th, a judge from the Seoul Central District Court sentenced Joon Young and Jonghun to 6 years and 5 years in prison, respectively, on charges of violating a special law on sexual violence crimes.
In addition, the two were ordered to complete 80 hours of sexual violence programs and banned from working with facilities that involve children, teenagers, and disabled for five years. The judge also denied probation sought by prosecution.
The indicted Burning Sun MD Kim and Girls Generation Yuri's brother Kwon were also sentenced to five and four years in prison, respectively. Huh, a former entertainment agency employee was the only one sentenced to suspended two-year prison term.
Jung Joon Young and Choi Jonghun were accused of gang r*pe after drugging women in Hongcheon and Daegu in January and March 2016. Evidence of the assaults were found in voice files and photos circulated in a group katalk chat that included the two.
Joon Young was also found guilty of sharing hidden camera sex tapes and photos with his acquaintances 11 times between 2015 and 2016 through a group katalk chat where former Big Bang member Seungri (29) participated.

- 2. [+3,206, -136] If these kids can get 5 and 6 years, then Seungri and Yang Hyun Suk should get at least 15-20 years. Seungri is probably at home with his feet up right now..is this really our country?
