On June 7, Maggie uploaded the photo to Weibo and wrote, “Men can leave but friends are always by your side. I’ve learned gratitude and what is precious. Thank you to all the good friends around me.”
The photo and caption drew the anger of fans all across Asia and they left negative comments on her social media account.
In October, Maggie and Seungri were photographed together in Taiwan, spurring rumors that the two were dating. She has since explained that her close relationship with celebrities is due to her work as a translator and that the scandal was unfounded.
Seungri took to his own Weibo to repost the picture that Maggie uploaded. “Maggie is really my friend,” he wrote. “Please stop attacking her. Thank you.”
Meanwhile, BIGBANG is set to release their first project film “BIGBANG MADE” in honor of their 10th anniversary.
