On March 13th Make Us Entertainment announced they were terminating their contract with Jung Joon-young. The decision follows revelations that Jung Joon-young was involved with taking clandestine sexual videos at Seungri's club, Burning Sun.

In a statement, Make Us Entertainment urged full cooperation with the investigation. Jung Joon-young has been summoned to the prosecutor's office to give testimony. He is scheduled to appear there on March 14th.
