Choi Jong-hoon of boy band FT Island was arrested on Thursday on charges of rape.  

The Seoul Central District Court accepted that the singer poses a risk of destroying evidence.

Choi (29) is charged with taking part in a gang rape with three other men in 2016 of a woman who said she was intoxicated after drinking with them.

All four men were members of the same celebrity group chat, where they also allegedly shared hidden-cam photos of women having sex.

The group chat also included Seungri of boy band Big Bang and singer Jung Joon-young.

Asked by reporters if he admits the charges, Choi only said, "I'm sorry". He denies rape.
