Yang Hyun Suk Shares Apology Message From BIGBANG’s Seungri + Responds To Claims
The YG Entertainment founder posted a screenshot on Instagram of a text message conversation with Seungri. Seungri’s message begins with two characters that are used to symbolize tears. Seungri wrote, “I will put an end to the controversy. I’m sorry for everything. I wanted to be funny while talking and I think I went a bit overboard.”
Yang Hyun Suk also shared a screenshot of a news article that reports that fans had begun a project on Twitter and Instagram to trend the phrase “YG Treat Seungri Right.” It reported that fans had stated that Yang Hyun Suk was deleting comments of complaint on his Instagram about a lack of support for Seungri at his recent Hong Kong concert, and quoted fans as saying they would continue the hashtag project until YG’s treatment of Seungri changed.
Yang Hyun Suk responded in the caption to his Instagram post. He first wrote the words “YG,” “Seungri,” and “VIP” with hearts in between, and went on to say, “I have never deleted comments in my life time. I wish everyone a happy new year.”
Seungri replied to his post with the same phrase of “YG Seungri VIP” with hearts, and said, “Sir, I’ll go to the seventh floor any time. I love you. Forever.” The seventh floor of YG Entertainment is where Yang Hyun Suk’s office is located.
At his recent solo concert in Hong Kong, Seungri reportedly stated that Yang Hyun Suk had belatedly found out that he was holding the concert and said that he had thought Seungri didn’t need backup dancers. According to fans, Seungri performed at the show with two backup dancers and no band. In response to this situation, fans began a protest on social media.
Seungri will be continuing his “The Great Seungri Tour 2019 Live” concert tour, including shows in Seoul on February 16 and 17.
