Two members of the Korean idol group Supernova have been arrested by the police on charges of gambling in the Philippines.
According to the police on the 15th, the Incheon Metropolitan Police Agency’s metropolitan investigation team arrested and investigated the idol group supernova members A and B on charges of gambling and others.
They are accused of gambling baccarat once or twice at a local casino in the Philippines from 2016 to 2018 with a stake of 7 to 50 million won. The police estimate that they spent 50 million won in gambling.
They are known to have admitted most of the charges in police investigations. However, he said, “I didn’t go to the Philippines to gambling,” he said, and “I accidentally gambled there.”
In addition, the police are investigating and detecting the situation in which gang members are involved in this case, and are checking whether other celebrities other than two supernova members who have already been registered have also been involved in overseas gambling. However, it was found that there are no supernova members other than two people, including A, who are investigated by the police.
The police plan to investigate the exact details of the case by securing recruits such as gambling house operators sooner or later.
Supernova, who debuted in 2007 and originally called ‘Chosinsung’, made their name public with songs such as ‘Hit’ and ‘Nostalgic Day’, and was especially loved for his collaborative song ‘TTL’ with T-ara. Since 2018, the group has changed its name to ‘Supernova’ and has been active in Asia.
On the other hand, member Yoon Hak attracted attention after returning from Japan on March 24th, receiving a confirmed Covid-19 confirmation. He was cured and recovered after a month and a half.
