At present, Seungri is facing one of the worst crisis in his career, and that is his involvement to the Burning Sun club in South Korea wherein an alleged Mr. Kim is spreading misinformation of an incident that happened last November 2018 causing the netizens to throw harsh comments and some fans are ‘canceling’ their concert tickets and ‘throwing’ their Bigbang merchandises.
YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun Suk already released a statement about the said issue saying that Seungri was not involved on the circulating issue. Seungri also got himself drug tested to prove his innocence and cleared that his resignation was part of his preparation for his upcoming military service.
The late night of February 1, 2019, Seungri’s younger sister, Lee Hanna (@goodgalhanna) commented a facebook link to her brother’s recent Instagram post and also cleared all of her photos except a link related to her brother was uploaded:
Fans are quick to be updated and now on work to spread the video:
This is the facebook link Hanna shared on @ForvictoRi's recent IG Post: https://t.co/G1zGuHOAh8
Please #LeaveSeungriAlone. The stress he is experiencing right now is the worst. #VIPTrustSeungri, and we will always stand for him because we believe he is innocent on this matter.
