Joon-young of Drug Restaurant has since admitted to filming women without their consent and posting the videos to the chat, and was arrested on suspicion of filming and sharing illicit hidden camera videos.
Seungri has been charged with providing prostitution services, which is illegal in South Korea, and he could face up to three years in jail.
South Korean police also said they planned to request an arrest warrant soon for Seungri on charges of distributing illicit footage, tax evasion, and embezzlement.
