An on-loan Norwich City football star is at the centre of a sex scandal amid claims he secretly filmed women and shared the footage. 

Hwang Ui-Jo is being investigated by police in his home country of South Korea.

The Nottingham Forest striker, who signed on loan for the Canaries just two months ago from the Premier League club, was questioned by cybercrime officers in Seoul at the weekend.

Hwang, 31, denies all charges and has brought a counter-claim for defamation and blackmail against his accuser.

He claims the footage was taken with the woman's consent and that he later lost the phone, while playing in Greece for Olympiacos.

The woman, who claims to be a former partner of Hwang's, made allegations against him on social media in June.

Hwang is currently in the Far East where he has been representing his country.

He scored against Singapore at the weekend and came on in the 72nd minute of a 3-0 World Cup qualifying win in China today.

The Korean Football Association confirmed it was aware of the allegations.

A spokesman said: "We are paying attention to the matter, and we plan on responding to it after carefully looking over the results of the police investigation."

A Norwich City spokesman confirmed that Hwang would continue to play with the team while he is on loan from Nottingham Forest and the club are aware of the ongoing investigation.

Hwang's legal representative told South Korean publication Koreaboo: "What we are sure of is that the videos were agreed on by his ex-girlfriend at that time, and Hwang Ui-Jo does not have the videos currently. He did not leak them either.

"The videos were absolutely kept private by him in his personal handphone, which was lost in Greece, in November 2022. We suspect theft of the phone.

"Not only were the videos used to threaten him, but also his private conversations with his acquaintances."

On Saturday Hwang was summoned by Seoul Metropolitan Police for questioning but was released the same day. 

The following day he flew to China to compete in the Asian qualifier Group C match for the 2026 World Cup. 

Hwang has scored once for City in a 3-1 defeat last month at Sunderland.
