Instagram has some strict rules and it looks like they’re not here to play. Jung Joon Young and former F.T. Island member Choi Jong Hoon know it all too well as they experienced it firsthand.
Former Roo’ra member Go Young Wook recently made headlines for making social media accounts after his prison release. However, not shortly after, he made headlines again when it was revealed that all his social media accounts were removed due to his sex offender conviction. Well, that list is growing as there are two former idols that are joining him, Jung Joon Young and Choi Jong Hoon.
When you search for Jung Joon Young or Choi Jong Hoon’s Instagram pages, viewers will get the “Page not found. Sorry, this page is not available.” While it may seem surprising to some, this should not come as a shock as Instagram has some strict rules stating that convicted sex offenders cannot use their platform. Due to this rule, Jung Joon Young and Choi Jong Hoon’s accounts have been taken down in compliance with these regulations.
Back in 2016, Jung Joon Young and Choi Jong Hoon were accused and found guilty of sexually assaulting intoxicated women. It was also revealed that both former idol members were a part of a group chatroom that shared explicit videos that were filmed illegally without the women’s consent. In a shocking whirlwind of news and charges, they were both tried and sentenced to prison for their crimes.
