Burning Sun denies rumors that employees sold marijuana in the past

Burning Sun is speaking out in response to allegations made in a recent news broadcast.

During a February 8 YTN news broadcast, one Soonchunhyang University's Police Administration professors, Oh Yoon Sung, shared that two people were charged after being caught smoking marijuana at the club last year. Currently, one is serving two years in prison with three years probation, and the other is serving one year in prison with two years probation.

The professor then shared that, due to the same incident, a former Burning Sun employee had to pay a 7 million won (approximately $6,250 USD) after being charged with selling marijuana.

On February 10, a representative for Burning Sun opened up about the claims made in the broadcast to news outlet MyDaily, stating that no employee has ever been involved in selling marijuana, nor has anyone involved with the club been charged with selling it in the past.


"Moving forward, please do not associate Burning Sun with the selling of marijuana," they added.

Two years in prison for smoking weed lol. In western club scenes this is not even considered a drug. Korea should rather care about their rapists.

Public records would show the truth. I can't believe someone smoking pot got a year in jail while someone sellong pot only got a $6,000 fine. Kinda bass ackwards.

No one cares if you’re “trolling”..... that’s really rude and insensitive of you. You so often say these kinds of insulting things and say “trolling”..... That incident put TOP in a serious condition and you think you can joke about it?

He was the one who chose to illegally do drugs. No one made him.

I did not do anything to put TOP (BIGBANG) in a "serious condition" as you put it. IF you want to blame someone for 'pushing' TOP into 'serious depression' ; I would choose that 'PERP WALK' situation (S.K New Media present) that the POLICE put TOP through it. When TOP was removed as a CONSCRIPTED POLICE officer. TOP was doing that CONSCRIPTED POLICE activity for his two years S.K MILITARY obligation.

Anyway, I am 'shocked' by this 'BURNING SUN' Club and MARIJUANA revelation. HWAITING for the 'news' that 'BURNING SUN' Club employees actually BREATHE AIR too! ... ;) ... No problem that AKP did this ARTICLE though. AKP is doing their job, in providing an 'overall view' of the nature of the 'BURNING SUN' Club, and activities associated with it ... And I do NOT think that ANYONE in JAPAN cares about any of it. And JAPAN DOME CONCERTS is where BIGBANG Group earns MOST of their MONEY income. And SEUNGRI *personally* has NO NEED to sell MARIJUANA for MONEY income purposes. As to IF that SEUNGRI *might* know that *some* 'BURNING SUN' STAFF member *might* be providing MARIJUANA to 'BURNING SUN' Club patrons ; who knows.
