The popularity of K-Pop is taking a dive - at least in the stock market - after South Korean police confirmed a member of the Big Bang boy band is being investigated as part of a probe into prostitution at Seoul nightclubs.
The club was reportedly known as 'Seungri's Club, ' a reference to 28-year-old K-pop star Lee Seung-hyun, known as Seungri.
In a statement he apologised to his fans, and promised to "sincerely participate in investigations into all allegations".
On Sunday, South Korean police raided a club associated with the singer to gather evidence and arrested Seungri. The Seoul nightclub was owned by Seungri at that time.
News of Seungri being potentially involved in this illegal trade surfaced last month after local media disclosed social media messages that sparked allegations that Seungri attempted to buy illicit sex services for potential foreign investors, reports stated.

It is alleged that Seungri tried to obtain prostitutes for clients through a group chat on the messaging app KakaoTalk in 2015. "As for the ongoing probe, I will take the investigation seriously to clear all the allegations", he said.
The rep added, "He was in a deeper pain because it all happened right before his military enlistment", and said, "To be honest, nothing has been clearly revealed regarding Seungri throughout the month and a half long police investigation." .
