& # 39; I apologize for leaving a permanent scar on the victim's heart & # 39 ;, Kim said in a statement.

The phenomenon & # 39; molka & # 39 ;, the use of secret cameras & # 39; s to take explicit photos & # 39; s of women, has shocked the entertainment industry in South Korea.
In March of this year, K-pop star Jung Joon-young was arrested on charges of filming and distributing illegal sex videos without the consent of his female partners.

Jung admitted to filming women and sharing online, and announced that he would immediately stop showbiz.
Fellow K-pop singer Seungri was also a member of the chat room, it was claimed, and quit the business in the same way.
Seungri is also linked to a police investigation into Burning Sun, a nightclub where he was a public relations director.
The staff there allegedly filmed with hidden cameras & women and used alcohol and drugs to sexually abuse them.
The scandal was a blow to the K-pop industry marketed by the South Korean government as an important cultural export.
