Big Bang‘s G-Dragon will be summoned to a criminal investigation for the violation of the Youth Protection Act and for lewd conduct.
The investigation will focus on G-Dragon‘s 1st solo concert last year, “Shine a Light”, which exhibited sexual and violent themes, and the fact that it was rated as “strictly prohibited for pre-teens under the age of 12”.
The Eastern Seoul District Prosecutor official stated, “We are in the process of collecting and reviewing all the information on the subject matter,” then continued, “We will determine the specific time frame when G-Dragon will be summoned to this investigation after this.”
G-Dragon held his concert last December which included a sexy performance with a female dancer for his song, Breathe.
The prosecutors are seeking for reasons why “She’s Gone” and “Korean Dream”, which were banned by the same Act in November, were still added to the show.
The two songs mentioned are considered not suitable for minors and are prohibited for sale, rent, screening and/or distributing in any channels by this law.
Individuals who are convicted of lewd conduct according to the Article 245 will face fine not exceeding ₩ 5,000,000 and one-year imprisonment and the penalties for the violation of the Youth Protection Act are ₩ 20,000,000 in fines and three-year imprisonment.
A representative from YG Entertainment gave a statement on the issue saying, “YG will assist the investigators in this process and will take care of it on behalf of the client (G-Dragon)” and added, “we will hereby accept the decision and are responsible for the legal action taken according to the Act.”
