Netizens are asking Seungri to take responsibility for the 'Burning Sun' allegations.
According to a report published by Sports Kyunghyang, many think its highly likely that Seungri can't escape legal responsibility for the ongoing scandal. With both sides arguments in conflict, the public needs clarification as to what's going on. 'Burning Sun' officials and Kim Mo as well as the police have made their statements but Seungri has yet to release an official statement so far.
The controversy is reaching a fever pitch especially with reports coming out that Seungri was supposedly at the club on the same day the assault happened as evident by Girl's Generation's Hyo-yeon's post with Seungri on Instagram on November 24th.
Netizens are demanding clarification from Seungri on his whereabouts on that date pointing out that he has a moral and legal responsibility as an employer in this situation.
Yoo Seung-woo, a lawyer said, "If employees commit an assault while at work and act in accordance with the regulations and guidelines of the business, then the business owner could be criminally responsible as an aide or teacher." Even if this is not proven, there is a civil liability for this illegal act."
With regard to this situation YG Entertainment has said "We will not be issuing an official statement."
Many netizens are planning on boycotting all Seungri-related activities until these allegations are thoroughly investigated.
