On December 10th, former Big Bang member Seungri (Lee Seung Hyun) attended the fourth trial of his case. He is being accused of the solicitation and the procurement of prostitution to his clients.
This trial called two prostitutes as witnesses. The first prostitute, witness B, stood in front of the court where she gave her testimony.
I went to the house not knowing that it was Mr. Lee’s (Seungri). I only learned that it was his residence after I arrived and he was there. I received my payment through a third party. However, he did give me money for my taxi ride home.

She continued with her testimony by sharing with the court that she provided services to one of Seungri’s Japanese clients in December of 2015.
After the first witness’ testimony, Seungri’s side denied all claims stating,
At the time, Mr. Lee was very well-known as a famous singer. Financially, he was doing well for himself so there is absolutely no reason for him to accept that type of investment.

The second prostitute, witness C, gave a similar testimony against the former Big Bang member. She revealed that during the Christmas season in December of 2015, she was taken to someone’s apartment. It was after she went inside that she realized it could have been Mr. Lee’s (Seungri) residence.
I received the call from my handler and went to an apartment that I assumed was Mr. Lee’s. However, I had my head down when I entered the residence so I don’t really remember if Seungri was one of the people there. There was 3-4 men there. I know for a fact that Yoo In Suk was present.

Yoo In Suk, former CEO of Yuri Holdings and husband of actress Park Han Byul, has also been accused of soliciting prostitution. He is also being accused of using corporate funds from Yuri Holdings inappropriately.
The 5th court hearing of this case is set to take place on December 29.
