Prosecutors sought an arrest warrant for Shin Jung-hwan, 37, singer-turned-TV personality, for habitual gambling overseas, Thursday.
``The nature of his crime is very bad given his actions in hiding away and gambling away a large amount of money overseas,’’ said a prosecutor.
Shin left for Cebu in September last year and allegedly gambled away more than 200 million won ($180,000) at casinos in the Philippines.
After hiding from the public and the police, he returned in January to face questionings.
