Jung was additionally convicted of filming sex videos of women against their will and sharing them with friends in a group chat.

Jung quit the music industry back in March when news of the accusations against him first broke.

Jung Joon-young, a singer-songwriter, and Choi Jong-hoon, a former member of the boy band FT Island, were found guilty of gang-raping two different women in two incidents in 2016. Furthermore, the courts also ruled that each man must complete 80 hours of sexual violence treatment programs in an effort to rehabilitate themselves along with the time served in prison.

Prior to Jung's conviction, the Seungri scandal almost took down one of the largest pop music record labels in South Korea, YG Entertainment.

He then said on Instagram: "I received a video from Jung and did have inappropriate conversations". "From now on, I shall only give out and live in remorse".

At the very least, this horrific crime - which has taken place in the shadows of South Korean society - has been dragged into the light.

The shocking revelation about the two pop stars apparently came out while the police were probing a separate case - involving K-pop superstar Seungri who was reportedly a member of Jung's group chat.

Some of those videos were taken during the 2016 instances of gang rape at the parties identified, the court found.

Seungri, who fronted a popular boy band named Big-bang, was charged with supplying prostitutes to potential business investors.
