On February 26, SBS FunE reported the 'Burning Sun' club was involved in prostitution and revealed messages involving Seungri, singer 'C', and Mr. Yu from Yuri Holdings as evidence.
In response, both YG Entertainment and Yuri Holdings denied all accusations and claimed the messages are fabricated.
The reporter who broke the news is saying the messages are not fabricated. The reporter told Ten Asia, "There is no reason why I would edit or fabricate the messages. There was absolutely no fabrication or editing, except for the extremely inappropriate expressions that I've purified," and added, "I will actively participate in the investigation if required to do so in the future."
