Police are conducting a search and seizure of YG Entertainment’s headquarters in relations to Yang Hyun Suk and Seungri‘s gambling scandals.
The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency announced on August 17 that at 9 am KST, they began their raid on the YG Entertainment headquarters.
Police are there in an attempt to secure evidence to support their accusations that Yang Hyun Suk was a habitual gambler.
Not included in the search and seizure was Yang Hyun Suk’s personal home.
Yang Hyun Suk and Seungri were revealed to have gambled billions of won in Las Vegas illegally. It is illegal for Korean citizens to gamble at all, whether it is in Korea or overseas, unless it is in one specific casino in Korea. Nevertheless, many Koreans still take the risk, and most of them go without punishment.
