His agency, YG Entertainment, said on Monday that it was aware the 28-year-old singer had been charged, but it did not have any new comment.

"As this social scandal is too big, I decided on my retirement".

The 29-year-old singer and businessman was officially booked over the weekend on suspicions that he procured sex services for potential investors.

The pop star, whose real name is Lee Seung-hyun, also announced his plans to "immediately retire from show biz" in order to protect BIGBANG's reputation, as well the group's talent agency YG Entertainment.

The rep added, "He was in a deeper pain because it all happened right before his military enlistment", and said, "To be honest, nothing has been clearly revealed regarding Seungri throughout the month and a half long police investigation." .

The five-member group, which has won a huge global following since it was formed in 2006, is taking a break after abruptly cancelling concerts scheduled for later this month.

The rep continued, "Seungri has been having a hard time at how he has been causing harm to the people around him". Seungri thanks his fans for their support as he quits the music industry.

Seungri was due to enrol on 25 March but could ask for a deferment while he addresses the allegations.
