Netizens are asking Seungri to take responsibility for 'Burning Sun' scandal + boycotting Seungri-related activities


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. 

Stay tuned for more details.

Still with the 'Seungri was there on the night' thing Allkpop? Seungri went to Hyoyeon's show which was on the 23rd of November not the 24th. This is all very easily confirmable if you were capable of doing your job properly. It's all over twitter. There's also new CCTV footage showing Mr K clearly attacking a police officer. Do your job properly and stop spreading stupid and false rumours.

My post has been edited without my permission. There was a twitter post confirming the date of Hyoyeon's gig and a correction about the author of the article. Not my fault if Allkpop decides to get bitchy.

you know what happened is horrifying, and if what has been reported really did happen and the poor woman was assaulted, i hope justice wins and the evil people pay, ( and that includes seungri if he had anything to do with any of it) but like i cant be the only one thinking the timing of all this is just to perfect... like seungri was calling out yg for mistreatment and fans were behind him and putting the heat on yg... but then this news just comes out ... and now fans have done a 180turn and are now boycotting seungri .....a coincidence...idk......

After all these years, gods know how many troubles the company has fixed or covered up for him, considering his personality. They probably hold him by his balls, so if they wanted him out of the picture they surely didn't need to scheme a makjang drama with an uncertain finale.

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! He is an INVESTOR and so he has no says in how the club is managed


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!

I understand what happen was terrible but cant people wait for the explanation? A night club has issues every single day, it is a place where people go crazy, so there is a chance that seungri didnt know about the issue. A manager might have solved the issue by kicking her out and decided not to bother the boss which must happen all the time.

I am not excusing the issue i think whoever handled the situation should be charged with assault and the boss (seungri) should fired the employees that did this ,but attacking seungri like this without much insight to what happen seems a bit unfair. there many things in bussiness that get out of hand that doesnt mean it is the boss's fault, only it means is that the boss needs to fix the situation.

People need to wait to have more facts until there is certainty that seungri knew about the whole thing.

Seungri is a celebrity so he is the easiest target of being tarnished by media and netizens since his name is associated with the club. Who cares that he was there on November 23 and the incident was on 24, they will believe whatever they want and what rumors are spreading firstly in media such is that he was there. They are interested in put him down social if legal aren't reasons. It's not about being legally innocent but causing social controversies and for that as a celebrity he must bow and apologize endlessly. They want Seungri to assume all the responsibility and kiss the dust, the truth doesn't matter once the machinery of destroying lives, image and careers is on. SK is under netizens' dictatorship, all those nameless can't wait to "kill" someone renowned's reputation.

What the hell is with YG and not issuing statements when his artists have scandals, yet when one artist makes a public complaint, YG forces said artist to apologise and then makes a small statement himself to make himself look better? The man is a fucking coward.

WHY DAFUQ WOULD U GO AGAINST SEUNGRI U IDIOTS!!!! IF SEUNGRI WAS RESPONSIBLE HE WOULD TAKE CARE OF THIS. IT SNOT HIS FAULT THE CORRUPT POICE AND THE BAD APPLES AND THE "VICTIM" TWISTED THE FACTS.

SEUNGRI EVEN HAD A V SUCCESSFUL DANCE ACAEMY AND AS SOON AS HE FOUND OUT TEACHERS AND STUDENTS WERE GETTING INVOLVED TOGETHER. TRUUUUUST ME IF SEUNGRI WAS A TEENY BIT RESPONSIBLE, HE WOULD FIX THIS BUT THIS IS NOT HIS FAULT.

Um, why? Did he assault anyone? Was he a witness and did nothing? Did he stand by and actively encourage the assault?

The police should investigate the incident, and that's it.

As a business owner, he still should take responsibility regardless wether he have direct/indirect involvement in it or not.

Just saying. I think it's time for seungri to go to the military and avoid these bad press. Be with his big bang brothers and away from public eye for now.

It's not Seungri's problem though? As director he should fire them, but the directors and CEO's aren't the same. That's the least he could do, tell a manager or whatnot to fire them. But in reality he knows nothing about what goes on, directors would only know bits and pieces if they are physically there. Plus we don't know if it was really the same night. Hyo cannot be DJing and taking selcas at the same time. Most people would upload a photo a day after or two days after. He really can't do much, people really should think before speaking or taking action. Blaming him and boycotting is just so stupid.

As an employer he will probably have to pay a fine or pay the victim BUT trying to place the blame on him for something his staff did is wrong. Boycotting his events isnt the answer to helping the victim. Grow up and realize people aren't responsible for the actions of others.

for ppl who r saying "can't these ppl wait for an explanation or statement from him", they r boycotting because he is not giving any explanation, and since yg said they wont be giving an official statement also..

jst,, what is there to think about? I don't know why is he taking so long to give a statement simply, just say the truth that's what ppl wants, is he thinking of lying or come up with excuses...?

Coming up with an official statement is not as easy as you think. They need to craft the statement properly & clearly as to avoid further misinformations & misunderstandings even if what he said is indeed the truth. You know how media can twist some words easily.

I don't know if anyone else thought the same thing I am, but I find it suspicious that these news are coming out right now, when Yang Hyun Suk is under fire for not supporting Seungri. Maybe I sound a bit like a conspiracy theorist but maybe YHS made this go away, for a while until he could use it to his advantage. So, now when fans are demanding a better treatment from YG, YHS took advantage of this knowledge to drag Seungri into the dirt, so now nobody will be mad at him for not backing him up. I've been a YG stan since I started listening to k-pop, but YHS has been very disappointing as a CEO of an entertainment company. All I know is I feel bad for Seungri, and hope he really didn't know what was going on, and if in fact he did know, well there is no way I could support him as a fan any longer.

If they were giving the police large amounts of hush money, then he prob has some idea of what’s going on

I still find it doubtful that the police were payed off with a large sum of money, which was highly likely out of the club's earnings, and Seungri DIDN'T know about it. If he's not aware of how the club's earnings are being handled, then he's a terrible club owner.
