These include violation of the Foreign Exchange Transactions Act, gambling, embezzlement, violation of the Act on Special Cases Concerning the Punishment of Sexual Crimes, mediating prostitution services, and violation of the Food Sanitation Act.
  • Due to a lack of consensus between X1‘s members’ agencies, the group will disband.
