Park Kyung, a member K-POP group Block B, attended his first police questioning in connection with ‘sajaegi’ investigation.
“Park Kyung voluntarily attended Seongdong Police Station and received his first investigation regarding the charges of violating the Information and Communication Network Act,” Seven Seasons, Park Kyung’s agency, stated on March 10.
They also added that the investigation has delayed several times due to COVID-19, but “the artist will sincerely engage in further investigation.”
Park caused a stir last November when he wrote about sajaegi (chart manipulation) by saying, “I want to sajaegi just like Vibe, Song Ha Ye, Lim Jae Hyun, Jeon Sang Geun, Jang Deok Cheol and Hwang In Wook” After the suspicion of sajaegi rose for the singers mentioned in the post, they declared a strong action against Park, accusing him of violating the Information and Communication Network Act, including defamation.
In January Park received a notice of enlistment to join the army, but submitted an application for the postponement due to the ongoing sajaegi investigation.
