Former Aori franchise owners looking to sue Seungri for major business losses following Burning Sun scandal


Former owners of Aori Ramen franchises are looking to sue parent company, Aori FNB, and are preparing a lawsuit against former Big Bang member, Seungri, for losses due to his involvement in the Burning Sun scandal. 

Two former franchisees have filed claims of 1,694,200 KRW (~145,000 USD) in damages against Aori FNB on June 12th at the Seoul District Court.

Although Aori Ramen has tried their best to distance themselves from Seungri, they experienced a huge drop in business due to the fact that the chain had used Seungri's name and likeness to promote their business in the past. Due to the Burning Sun scandal, 15 of the 44 total franchises had to close down. 

It seems like more franchise owners are joining in on the lawsuit, and are preparing to file a lawsuit against Seungri as well. The results of the lawsuit will definitely depend on the civil lawsuit against Seungri for his participation in the Burning Sun scandal.

Seriously though, you get the perks of doing business with a celebrity but you also get the risks. They should have managed this disaster better f.ex. removing themselves in a louder way or showing that they care about women rights in a major way. They did neither. Of course customers will disappear.
