Burning Sun Scandal

This was a massive criminal case that involved collusion among the police, drugs, sexual crimes, tax evasion, and illegal fillming and sharing. It started with an assault case at "Burning Sun," a nightclub located at Le Merdian Hotel, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea on 24 Nov 2018. The case grew bigger with the suspicion that the owner and a member of K-pop group Big Bang, Seungri (who is now out of the group), had collusive links with the police.
