An insider says Seungri does not actually own the 'Burning Sun' club

SEUNGRI

Big Bang's Seungri is not the official owner of the 'Burning Sun' club, according to an insider. 

On January 30, an affiliate of 'Burning Sun' spoke with Sports Kyunghyang and revealed, "It's true Seungri operated 'Burning Sun' but he's not actually the owner."


The insider explained another figure is actually the owner and said, "While working on the interior for the club, the owner overheard that Seungri is looking for a location to run a club so offered to work together to Seungri."


The insider continued, "People think Seungri is the CEO," however, "It's true he predominantly operated the club but he's not the official owner."

Prior to this, KBS reported Seungri resigned from his position as director at 'Burning Sun' last week. 

Meanwhile, netizens are demanding Seungri take responsibility for the assault controversy surrounding 'Burning Sun.' Comments stated, 


"Didn't he say it's his club and it's opening soon when he appeared on 'I Live Alone'?" "He stated many times that it's his own club. Why is he changing his position now?" 


"Trying to dump the responsibility on someone else. Watch him make his military enlistment soon now." 


"Operated the club but doesn't own it... That's bullsh*t. He invested so much money in it and the insider even said he predominantly operated it. He might not be the 'official' owner but he basically is."

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED: The club threw Kim out of BS because he harassed women in the club. This exact man had already two precedents of sexual misconduct! And what did Kim do after that? He said he protected a woman of drugs & rape with the 'proof' being a video of a drunk woman, from a different day, that HIT staff inebriated & was dragged out.


RECEIPTS to prove Seungri is innocent:


The TRUTH about the CCTV footage (translation of a Letter From The Security):

"The woman provoked and attacked other guests, and broke the laptop when we were trying to stop her. When she was brought out, before the police came, I was beside her. She hit me and another staff by the face with her fist, we didn’t do anything. She was rude to the police as well. She was brought to the police station due to vandalism, violence and interference of public duties. The next day, she paid compensations and wrote a letter and bought a new computer."


Was Seungri there? NO HE WASN'T. Burning Sun has already clarified that he was not there and was not involved in any of the incidents. Seungri went to Hyoyeon's show, which was on the 23rd of November not the 24th


Is Seungri the CEO? NO! According to an ex-BS official, Seungri was NEVER the CEO! He is an INVESTOR and only a publicity representative of the club, so he has no says in how the club is managed. The most recent update of the company analysis report is from 2018/05 and proves there were at the time only two CEOs, the current ones: Lee Moonho and Lee Seonghyun (not Lee Seunghyun, which is Seungri's real name. There is a difference!!)


Are the incidents RELATED? NO! According to the security, Kim was hit on 24/11 and the women was dragged out of the club on 1/12!

What's sad is people won't believe Seungri no matter what is said.


They'll believe he knew of the incident, that he paid off the police, that he's doing everything he can to frame the victims, that he's trying to shift the blame to someone else, etc. Seungri was never the most popular member of Big Bang and he's had some scandals of his own in the past.


I'm not saying that it's impossible for a human being to do those things, but I believe that some of these people who are after Seungri made up their mind before any of the facts came out.

The problem is he didn’t say anything. He should say it himself that he’s not involved. Not some random insiders. I really do want to believe him, but he needs to speak first

You guys are trash. Seungri is struggling to juggle his world tour without any support from YG and its clear he's not the owner of the Burning Sun and he wasn't even present or aware of the misconduct but you people really out here attacking him for something he had no control over! He left the business in what he thought were safe hands, and he was wrong okay but he's human and humans make mistakes. You guys are despicable for relentlessly attacking Seungri over something he had no control over and not taking into consideration his situation. I bet my man is probably stressing to death over this whole scandal when he should be taking his cute lil pre concert instagram photos and trying his hardest on a tour that his own damn agency is too lazy to help out with. Stop attacking Seungri and face the facts. Yes this is a horrible scandal but there's no need to bash Seungri for it all. No this is not pushing the blame onto someone else because from the very beginning someone else was to blame. Not Seungri, but other parties. Stop. #SeungriDeservesBetter

Why can't they understand that the club was only using Seungri's celebrity to attract a particular type of patron?

To be fair Seungri did go on Korea's current #1 variety show and say he owned a club. Somehow viewers have to know that he is just bluffing and that it's for marketing purposes only? If Seungri wasn't a celebrity and didn't ride the coattails of Big Bang's talent I don't think he would be that likable. He just seems insincere and insecure and when you come off like that it's difficult for people to believe what you have to say. Seungri is in a lose-lose situation because if he comes out and says he is not/was not an owner it will reinforce the fact that he just a bluffer and liar. He's choosing to be silent hoping it will pass/work itself out without having to take responsibility or admitting that he intentionally painted a false picture of himself to the public.

To be a thinker


When you have an investment stake and are a profit sharer, then you have ownership. So what he said wasn't a lie.


However, apparently, he sold that stake. This club is one he no longer wanted to be associated with because instead of being profitable, it was becoming detrimental.


Again, THE ONLY REASON Burning Sun is in headlines is because of Seungri's past involvement. And since you're trying to evoke a sense of fairness, Seungri's already taken a hit for how it's perceived the club was being run due to a falsely reported event.



[smh] You folks are selective in regards to how you digest the lies you're told. You want to believe an idol is exclusively your lover and petition to have him fired from his group and label after he professes he has an actual girlfriend.


Répète: People are stupid.

You have to be retarded to think that celebrities don't lie on tv, especially variety shows. Most of their stories are lies, that's how they make them entertaining.


If they only told the truth, it would just be them calling a chick and then banging them. Inappropriate for tv, and not all that interesting without all the juicy details.

So lame. Why should he take responsibility? Another witch hunt cus he is a celeb and he is associate with the club? I dont care if he owns it or not, the problem is the folks involved in this. This is nothing new in Korea. There are drunkards and women harassment all the time at club after drinking and partying. Why is this even news anymore.

First of all, I like all members of Bigbang separatelty. But i wanted to stay objectively.

The club burning sun, showed video where we can see a girl hitting a guy. But if there was a camera standing at that angle. Why don’t they show the part where “the bodyguard and the girl” actually get out of the club together. No one wonders this? Are they trying to mislead the media? By showing footage of girl hitting a male together with an apology letter. I cant really see the correlation.

Seungri has a younger sister who likes DJ-ing so he is the first who wants a safe environment for girls/women in club, why on Earth he would close his eyes of any kind of abuse if he knew about it? But as I said none of rational arguments count because they need "blood" to fed their malignity. They want to put Seungri down as they almost publicly lynched T.O.P. as if he was the worst criminal at that time, it's in their culture, their mentality didn't evolve since Joseon era. The children who became celebrities must take responsibility for their parents/family doings, pay their debts and so on if they want to continue their careers. Seungri became too successful in many areas at his young age to not disturb anybody and step over someone's interests so to manipulate media and mindless nameless netizens is the easiest way to damage him because he has so much to lose.

WOW. I cannot believe how many korean fans have turned against Seungri. We don't even know what truly happened yet but there they are demanding their money back for tickets to his concern and even petitioning to end the tour. WTF!


Why are you all so judgmental? You aren't perfect but demand others to be. His is co-owner of the club yes but remember he has been traveling all over the place and doing concerts etc. How is he the one responsible when he is busy with everything else?


You all very disloyal and quick to react; defaming Seungri before we know all the facts. Chill out! It's not like he is the one who committed the criminal acts. He just part of the ownership of the club. Seungri is just an easy target for everyone.

Pleaseeeeeeeee just use your common sense before you make yourselves look a fool, Now that being said, we still don't know the level of credibility this 'insider' has. This is not over and it seems there are further investigations to be carried out so just wait till EVERYTHING comes out.
