In a surprising revelation, Seungri (승리) has parted ways with his ramen business.
The BIGBANG maknae, who opened his first Aori Ramen restaurant in December 2016 and registered as the head of Aori Ramen in September 2017, officially resigned from his post as executive director earlier this month.
This comes after the 28-year-old South Korean singer stepped down from his executive director position at Burning Sun. The nightclub in Gangnam, Seoul has been under police investigation for claims for sexual assaults and drug usage. The club was also accused of turning a blind eye on sexual crimes against female customers there.
No official statement has been issued by Seungri or his team, but Yang Hyun Suk commented that K-pop star was sorting out his business affairs before going off to fulfil his military enlistment duties soon.
“The reason Seungri resigned from his position as director of the club was in order to comply with the regulations of military enlistment as he was planning to enlist in the military in March or April,” said Yang Hyun Suk.
Seungri is currently busy embarking on his solo tour in Asia.
