Hwang Ui-jo, a striker for Norwich City, has been suspended by South Korea while a police investigation is underway into allegations that he secretly recorded an ex-partner.

The 31-year-old forward is accused of filming a sexual encounter with his former girlfriend on his phone and sharing it on social media.

Hwang, who scored a goal in Norwich’s 3-2 loss to Watford on Tuesday, refutes the accusation.

According to the BBC, the Championship club is aware of the accusations.

The Canaries will keep an eye on any updates.

Hwang is currently on a season-long loan from Premier League team Nottingham Forest to Carrow Road.

He scored a penalty against Singapore while playing for South Korea in two World Cup qualifiers this month, and it was anticipated that he would be included in the squad for the Asia Cup in January.

However, he was suspended on Tuesday by the Korea Football Association’s (KFA) ethics committee while police investigations were ongoing.

“We have decided not to select Hwang Ui-jo for the national team until a clear conclusion is reached on the facts,” the committee said in a statement afterwards.

He spent the previous season on loan at FC Seoul and the Greek team Olympiakos. Since joining Norwich on loan in the summer, he has made 14 appearances and scored three goals.

On January 12, the Asian Cup begins in Qatar. Three days later, South Korea will play their first match against Bahrain.
