Back in August 4, the Seoul Gangnam Police seized and searched the building after suspicions of illegal nightlife operations were reported. The police analyzed all of the companies’ books and had begun focusing on 5 specific businesses that were located in Daesung’s building.
The investigative team attracted a lot of attention as it was assigned 12 members, including officials from customs and drug investigations.
Daesung had previously written that he was not aware of the illegal operations that took place in his building since he enlisted in the military merely 2 months after purchasing it. However, lawyers claimed that he was well aware of the illegal activity.
Daesung is expected to be discharged from the military in November.
