Amidst the sex, drug, and corruption scandal SEUNGRI is going through, the legendary BIGBANG member has decided to leave his company and retire from the K-Pop industry. YG has released a statement stating that they did not know about SEUNGRI’ decision to retire, and they found out through SEUNGRI’s statement on social media. YG is still in talks with SEUNGRI’s contract, and they have not yet terminated his contract.
This is Seungri.
At this point, I think it would be for the best if I retire from the entertainment industry. I decided on retiring from the entertainment industry due to the issues that I caused. The disturbance and issues in society are too big. Regarding the issues that are being investigated, I will accept all investigations and reveal all the suspicions.
While getting criticism and hate from the public for the past month and a half, and with all the agencies in the country currently investigating me, I am even being considered a traitor of Korea. Personally, I can’t tolerate harming everyone around me to ave myself.
I would like to sincerely thank all the fans in Korea and around the world who have given me lots of love for the past 10 years. I think this is where my end [as a celebrity] will be, even if it’s [to protect] the honor of YG Entertainment and BIGBANG.
Again, I am sorry and would like to apologize once again.
I am so thankful to everyone up until now
The bombshells continue as it was revealed that SEUNGRI was not the only celebrity to be involved in the infamous group chat.
