"I filmed women without their consent and shared it in a chatroom, and while I was doing so I didn't feel a great sense of guilt."

The Sympathy singer later apologized for his committed crime stating:

"Throughout the rest of my life, I will repent on my immoral and illegal acts that constitute crimes."

Jung admitted his assault stating:

"I will faithfully cooperate with an investigation by police that will start on Thursday and I will readily accept whatever punishment is in store for me."

"Spycam" is one of the biggest epidemics in South Korean and the government is fighting over the years to eliminate this scandal. The hidden cameras are placed in various public places such as dressing rooms, toilets, hotels, and the clips are uploaded without the concern of victims.

Women's rights activist Bae Bok-Ju told AFP regarding the case:

"This case just shows that male K-pop stars are no exception when it comes to being part of this very disturbing reality that exploits women."

K-pop community holds a good image in the public and are hugely supported by the government for exposing their culture and tradition throughout the world. Various artists from the group are globally famous such as BIGBANG, BTS and more. But due to the recent scandal, the government was shocked and disgraced.
