A South Korean court has sentenced K-pop stars Jung Joon-young and Choi Jong-hoon to six and five years in prison for gang raping drunk unconscious women.

Jung was also charged with filming the assault and distributing the footage.

The men will have to do 80 hours of sexual violence treatment courses and are banned from working with children.

The case is one of several sex and abuse scandals that have rocked the K-pop world in recent years.

Judge Kang Seong-soo said that Jung, 30, had raped women who were “drunk and unable to resist, filmed them nude and having sex, then spread it on a group chat”.

“We can’t imagine the pain the victims might have felt who found out later.”

He also said it seemed Jung viewed the victims just as a tool for pleasure.

In the final testimony, Jung – who rose to fame on a TV talent show – said: “I deeply regret my foolishness and I feel great remorse.”

“From now on, I shall only… live in remorse,” he added.

In March, he quit the music business after admitting that he secretly filmed women and shared the videos.

On Choi – a former member of the band F.T. Island, which had number one albums in South Korea – the court said the 30-year-old “did not feel remorse after mass-raping drunken victims”.
