Police in South Korea have confirmed they have more questions for Norwich City loan striker Hwang Ui-Jo.

Reports in the player's homeland also suggest the investigation may be expanded further due to his legal team releasing a victim's personal information. 

Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency told Korea JoongAng Daily - an English-language media outlet associated with The New York Times - that it would be "examining them from several angles" to find out whether Hwang or his lawyers could be charged for disclosing the information. 

The news comes amid a sex tape scandal for the Nottingham Forest striker which has seen the 31-year-old accused of illegally filming and distributing videos of partners without their knowledge or permission.

Hwang, who has 62 caps for his country, has denied all allegations and has claimed his phone was stolen while playing in Greece for Olympiacos. He also launched a countersuit for defamation.

Seoul Met said: "If Hwang or his legal team are responsible for causing secondary damage, the police will investigate the point extensively."

It is reported that Hwang's legal team inadvertently revealed identifying clues about the partner during proceedings on November 22.

Seoul Police added that they had obtained "solid proof" regarding the leakage of the footage, according to JoongAng Daily - though they refused to release further details.

A spokesman said: “We need to question Hwang more. He will be called into the precinct once the schedule is arranged.”

Since the allegations surfaced, the Korea Football Association (KFA) has said the forward will not play for the national team again until the inquiry is over - after he scored in a 5-0 win over Singapore in World Cup qualifying last month.

The former Bordeaux striker joined Norwich from Forest on a season-long loan and has made 14 appearances for the Canaries.

However, he injured his hamstring when scoring his third goal for the club during a 3-2 Championship loss at Watford last week which is set to keep him out for much of this month.
