      Police on Thursday questioned Seung-ri of boy band Big Bang on fresh charges of embezzling W200 million from his swanky Gangnam club Burning Sun (US$1=W1,165).

      The Seoul Metropolitan Agency discovered financial records showing the club's money being used to pay for the brand of Monkey Museum, another posh Gangnam club Seung-ri founded with his shady business associate Yu In-suk, who is married to actress Park Han-byul.

      Seung-ri and Yu set up a holding company called Yuri Holdings that invested in both Monkey Museum and Burning Sun and apparently diverted money from one to the other whenever they saw fit.

      The pair are also accused of pimping, turning blind eye to drug peddling and sex abuse at their club, and bribing police.
