Sechskies Kang Sung Hoon's personal label runs into issues with YG Entertainment + fans ask what happened to taxi ad funds

It seems the controversies won't stop for Sechskies member Kang Sung Hoon

Following controversies related to Kang Sung Hoon's classist comments and his alleged embezzlement of fan club funds, it's being reported Kang Sung Hoon's personal label Hoony World (Forever2228) attempted to address his recently canceled Taiwan fan meeting under YG Entertainment's name. The YG Entertainment legal team has stated they're currently looking into the matter. 

The organizer of the Taiwan fan meeting is currently seeking to sue after Kang Sung Hoon allegedly one-sidedly canceled the event. He's stated it couldn't be avoided due to visa issues, but reportedly, the legal responsibility has unexpectedly fell onto YG Entertainment. The label stated, "YG was unaware of these issues, and we're attempting to confirm the situation. The fan meeting was Kang Sung Hoon's independent promotion."

In the midst of these issues, Kang Sung Hoon's fan club is wondering what happened to taxi advertisement funds for his solo concert 'The Gentle' held this past June 5. According to his fans, they donated 23,967,901 Won ($21,308 USD) to support his solo promotions, and 20,000,250 Won ($17,781.42 USD) was to be used for taxi advertisements. However some fans are stating, "We didn't see even one taxi advertising Kang Sung Hoon in Seoul."

Taxi company G has come forward to state they never received 20,000,250 Won, and they were not requested to serve taxi customers with Kang Sung Hoon's banners on their vehicles. Rather, they were told to park 10 taxis around Kang Sung Hoon's concert with his banners on them. 

What are your thoughts on the ongoing controversy?
