The caption read, "'AORI Ramen's 19th location in Daegu is officially open for business."  The singer can be seen happily posing in front of his new ramen shop.

However, seeing this, some netizens expressed anger and criticized the star for uploading such a message, with many still in mourning by the late SHINee member Jonghyun's passing.

Some commented, "I know it's not right to force someone to pay respects but honestly as a fellow singer and friend, you could have at least postponed the opening ceremony for a few days.  I must say that I am a bit troubled by all of this," "Hey Seungri, I think it would be best to take down this post.  Not sure if you heard the news already but many are still in deep mourning and grieving at the loss of an idol star. Wouldn't it be better to post a few days after when things settle down? It's not like you weren't acquainted with him at all, and feel such a post would only hurt others during this time so please kindly remove it."

On the other hand, netizens defended the Big Bang member saying, "Don't push it," "If he really wants to pay respects to the deceased, he can do so alone, in private. No one has any right to force someone into doing something."

Community boards also flooded with comments, "These netizens all getting fired up are just overreacting," "People gotta make a living too, you know."
