On January 29, Burning Sun shared an official response to the ongoing controversy via Instagram. The head director Lee Sung Hyun and Lee Mon Ho of Burning Sun apologized on behalf of their employees and announced to properly engage in the police investigation.

During this process, the woman hit the security guard's head. An employee with English skills attempted to explain the situation to the woman, but she reacted with anger and physically assaulted the employees. The police arrived at the scene and she was arrested. The case drew to a close with her paying a fine.

how convenient that they have a ready explanation that throws blame on the victim. Also, how convenient that Seungri just happen to resign just before this whole incident came to light. I'd understand if he had quit months ago. But this literally happened last week. Bull. Shit.

I'm not accusing Seungri of anything, but honestly, this whole ordeal is pretty sketchy and I'm not exactly sure how I feel about it. Usually, if someone is getting kicked out of a bar, a trained staff or security guard is allowed to forcibly remove the person from the premises, especially if that person is becoming too aggressive. However, that person may not use excessive force and to me (based on the original video), it looks like they used an unnecessary amount of force. Also, their apology doesn't explain why they beat up Mr. Kim, who was attacked for trying to help the female. I hope a fair and honest investigation is conducted so that we can find out the truth of this matter.
