Seungri of boy band Big Bang has applied for his looming enlistment to be postponed while he is subject to a criminal investigation for pimping and other charges.

He filed the application with the Military Manpower Administration on Monday afternoon, according to his lawyer.

He was to start his Army boot camp on March 25, but the escalating scandal has thrown a spanner in the works.

Earlier, police also asked the MMA for help so Seungri can cooperate in the investigation.   

The star has tearfully pledged to retire from showbusiness amid charges that he procured prostitutes for potential investors in his swish Gangnam nightclub, Burning Sun, which was allegedly a hotbed of drug peddling and sex abuse.

He has also been sucked into a scandal surrounding fellow K-pop star Jung Joon-young, who is accused of habitually sharing clandestinely filmed sex tapes of himself with his celebrity friends in an online group chat that Seungri was also a member of.

Seungri was grilled at the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency for about 16 hours last week.
