The CEO Lee Moon Ho of 'Burning Sun' spoke up in Seungri's defense.
In an interview with Kyunghyang News, he said, "Seungri is my friend. I built the plan for 'Burning Sun', and suggested he work on it together with me. I have 10% of the 'Burning Sun' shares, and Seungri has 20%." He then added, "If his KakaoTalk messages from 3 years ago are illegal, then aren't all Korean men criminals? It's not even that prostitution actually happened, but that they joked about it. I don't know what happened in 2015. I'm not even part of the group chat that's being talked about right now."
Lee Moon Ho is currently also being investigated by the police on various charges such as collaborating with the police and distributing drugs.
