Concertgoers continue to cancel tickets to Seungri's 'The Great Seungri' concert in Seoul

Concertgoers are cancelling their tickets to Big Bang member Seungri's upcoming '1st Solo Tour - The Great Seungri - Final in Seoul'. 

The finale concert, set to take place over two days from February 16-17 at the SK Olympic Handball Arena in Olympic Park, will mark Seungri's last official activity before his mandatory military enlistment. 

However, the controversy surrounding Seungri's involvement in club 'Burning Sun's management has led many buyers to cancel their ticket purchases. According to various ticketing site on February 7, 394 seats remain open for Seungri's show set for February 16, and 454 seats remain open for the show set for February 17. Furthermore, concertgoers are flooding ticketing community boards with inquiries on how to receive refunds for cancelled tickets. 

Back on February 2, Seungri revealed in regard to the violence, management, and drug distribution controversies surrounding 'Burning Sun', "I was not on site when the violence occurred. I was a director of the club in charge of promotional matters, and did not participate in the operational or management side. As I was a member of the directorial board at the time of the incident, I will take responsibilities where they are due."

If u did your research and didn't blindly take whatever they give you here on this site, netizenbuz and nate you would know that the famous Mr Kim made this whole scandal up, even said himself that he will destroy Seungri's reputation. Yet the fact is being ignored because hatred for Seungri sells. So go, cancel your tickets if you want I believe Seungri wouldn't want you as his audience either.


I'm just waiting for the end of the investigation to be honest so the 'witchhounting Seungri hobby' would cease.

It's sad because even though Mr.Kim is most likely a scumbag, aside from the lies that Mr.Kim told about the club, real concerns about drugs and how they prey on women have come to light through the Kakao messages revealed by Dispatch. It's unfortunate but I don't think you can turn a blind eye to crimes that might be taking place even though it was initially instigated by a false story by Mr,Kim.

Dispatch is acting as if they released something big regrading the BS issue. The truth is that what happend in BS happens in nearly every club, sorry to say but sex and drugs are so common in clubs the reason i don't like visiting them. BS didn't investigated anything spectecular to harm BS, what they found could be found in a club right next to BS as well lol.

It's sad because if you did your research both his mother and Seungri were Directors at that establishment which regularly dealt with drugs and sexual harassment (possibly even rape). Majority of employees treated women in the club as trade goods and totally denied them any human respect and decency. Seungri promoted that place. No, he did not drug or rape the women but he collaborated closely with business rotten to the core. People cancelling their ticket show nothing but support for women who fell victims to this and stand up to treating them as products which should never be taken lightly.

No you're not, but that's AKP . Rumors and scandals are their specialty. And the saddest thing is everyone believes they only write the truth, but a lots of the time they are pretty misleading.

seems youre new here, akp is just like dispatch, a trash site, who only care about money and attention. akps ceo himself once stated, that they only want traffic in the articles here and controversies and fanwars are the best way for that. there are some really disgusting haters here since many years, who are allowed to wish bad things to happen to celebrities on a daily basis and theyre still here, only because they give the articles a lot of clicks and comments with their hate rants and fan fights that they start everywhere...


they even wrote many lies in their articles, to add more fights, they even supported spreading fake nudes of ailee(not too sure if it was her) a few years ago, last year it was seolhyuns and the comments sections were filled with nudes from pathetic piece of shits, who added seolhyuns face on them and not a single one of them ever got banned or even warned...


thats the kind of site youre in here...

just a couple hundreds seat not sold compared to thousands already filled.. it might not be a huge profits event but it will definitely not be a lost. VIPs can easily cover those seats.

The media is making it seem a lot worse than it is. The ticket cancellations aren't THAT much, there were about 20+ cancellations today. Thousands of fans will still be attending.

Um you can search 승리 on Naver, the info that 20 tickets were cancelled in 4 hours is literally on the articles. It's also on Koreaboo. The capacity of the arena is 5,003 so that's 10,006 seats available for 2 days. 848 total seats left is not that bad because thousands will still be attending. Anyway, Seungri already had 2 concerts in Korea last August and this is just an encore.

Well, despite the facts that are already on the public knowledge there are still people defending him so it's not a surprise that there still some attending...

As I said before, knowing that this happened, even when he wasn't on the spot at the moment, and doing nothing about it is as serious as being the offender himself, but I don't think VIPs will ever understand that.

This is a quote of Seungri's statement as it was published in 2 Feb: "What started as an assault incident at Burning Sun has led to the media reporting about drugs also being involved. I have not seen nor heard of any cases about this. I am actively cooperating with the police with their investigations and I hope that the truth will be revealed following a thorough investigation. If there was a crime committed, those who committed the crimes should be punished. If I am to take any responsibility as the in-house executive director, I will accept all of it.”

Now what is quoted in this article sounds different isn't it? This is media manipulation because who can remember exactly his words and the context in which he said so after 5 days of bombardment with all kind of information about the subject? So after sometime every trash journalist can put words in Seungri's mouth even if he didn't say so or in that sense. The success of trash journalism is based on how superficial the readers are being very minded to negativity. I'm not concerned about the open seats of his concerts because the true fans will be there and enjoy his performance. The others which changed their mind based on assumptions are people who cannot enjoy so what's the point to be there anyway?

BIGBANG has existed since 2006, that's 13 years, does anyone here really think us fans who have been with them for so many years are just going to drop them for a scandal? Unless they prove anything and actually convict Seungri for something HE DID, I will be by his side, (their side) because after THIRTEEN years they aren't just a band you like, they are your companions and real VIPS never abandon them, we have been thru so much, so many fake shitty scandals, and real sad scandals, this is the universe's way of cleaning the BB fandom from fake fans, we don't need you, leave, fake love someone else, Bigbang is truly and honestly loved by us so there's no space for people who don't realize how honest, hard working and amazing GD, Daesung, T.O.P, Taeyang, and Seungri really are. ☮️-1 ✌🏼

People cancel tickets all the time before the concert, often because they snatched better seats, it's not a big deal.

He said, according to what this report states: "I was not on site when the violence occurred. I was a director of the club in charge of promotional matters, and did not participate in the operational or management side. As I was a member of the directorial board at the time of the incident, I will take responsibilities where they are due."

Well, not being on site at the moment of the events doesn't means that he doesn't know they were happening, and ignored them is as bad as being part of them. In a criminal trial, that can be considered as an attempt to cover up the matter or as being an accomplish to the crime by not doing anything to prevent it. Simple as that.

Contrarily, he could know nothing about the situation. A business model on the outside might seem fairly straight forward and that everyone is always a part of a transparent team effort with each other, but that ideal situation is never found in reality.


Also, Aiding and Abetting a crime requires more than just knowledge of something happening, because it is extremely difficult to prove if someone did or did not 'know' something. According to laws throughout most of the US (which I realize may be different), he'd have to take an extra step beyond "hearing people talking about it," such as being witness to the crime, or attempting to cover it up (which in and of itself requires various degrees of proof to indict).

Really, the best thing to do is trust in the justice system and that it will find the truth. If he's innocent, he's innocent. If he's guilty, he's guilty. Unnecessary to make assumptions based on what you assume is the truth based on snap-shot claims and evidence.

well i don’t blame them, what self respecting woman want to see a guy who tried to cover up a sexual assault ring in his own club?


oppar apologists needs to have some self respect, honestly. if you don’t stand up for what is right how do you expect men to change and take you seriously? i think vips enjoy being thought of as second class citizens to their idols. f*cking freaky.

ratmonster maybe, but i can tell you, that he already proved countless times, that his other accounts are ryenlux, kpoptrashtalker, holdthisLnoobs, alcohol, fatndumb and unicorncuppycake, and who knows what else...


hes a racist who hates south korea and kpop and that since many years, before he was known with his older accounts like bigblueagain, bangeryun94, wang_sejung and ryen, which he changed now to ryenlux and always hated on every single korean artist, because hes jealous that kpop is getting bigger and bigger. hes even so disgusting to make fun of the ones suffering or the ones who died, just like he did with jonghyun and laughed about his death...thats the kind of trash that he is, and akp still protects him because he still gives them a lot of clicks and comments here, the only thing akp cares about...
