Boy band JYJ's Park Yu-chun was caught by maritime police operating his yacht without getting the vessel checked for safety. The Korea Coast Guard is investigating Park on charges of violating the Ship Safety Act, a spokesman said Thursday.
According to the Coast Guard, Park steered the 11-ton Prestige without a safety license in waters off Haeundae, Busan about a dozen times between late July until early October last year. The 13.5 m-long yacht has double-decker cabins and reportedly cost about W1 billion (US$1=W1,122).
