In this way, the FBI has granted conclusive evidence, which is shown in a document of more than 500 pages, where Yang Hyun Suk and Seungri are observed going to a Las Vegas casino to gamble, illegally, a large amount of money in various games of chance in that place.

One of the representatives of said Las Vegas casino has confirmed the participation of the FBI in said case after being requested by the South-Korean police, mentioning that "Due to the request of the Korean police, the FBI has started to get involved in the matter of Yang Hyun Suk's entrance to the casino."

According to reports from the casino, Hyun Suk and Seungri came to the venue several times to place bets of large amounts of money. In this way, the illegal bets of both characters, in total, would amount to more than 2 million dollars, being something penalized by the South-Korean justice and that could bring many legal problems, to both celebrities, in that country.

Previously, Seungri had been involved in a case of prostitution and sexual abuse of women, after seeing the participation of one of his private clubs, located in South Korea, in such acts. In addition, a group of the singer's workers would be involved in said event, which implied the singer's passive participation in this type of business.
