Although it’s nice to ask people to send in their messages and best wishes for someone, sometimes you need to be reminded of who that person is and how people would perceive this situation.
Former member of K-pop boy group BIGBANG, Seungri (승리) is currently in jail for the “Burning Sun” scandal. His sister Hanna thought it would be a good idea to ask fans to leave messages for her brother but things didn’t turn out as she would have hoped for.
Seungri’s sister Lee Hanna, who is an active DJ, posted on her Insta Story yesterday (Tuesday, 19th April) asking fans of the former BIGBANG member to send in their messages so she can pass them to him. In her Instastory she said, “He misses you guys. If you guys have something to tell him, please contact me. I’ll pass it on to him instead.” The message was written in English, possibly directed to his overseas fans.
Korean netizens suspected that she wrote the message in English for international fans due to the fact that her brother had lost all his Korean fans after the “Burning Sun” scandal. Many netizens are saying that both Seungri and his sister are shameless for asking for continuous support for the convicted former idol.
Seungri’s sister’s Instastory was posted on The Qoo where many netizens expressed their dissatisfaction in the comments section. Here’s what some of them had to say about the post:
“I have something to tell him, please get out of my life and never appear again”
“She knows he doesn’t have fans in Korea anymore so she’s directing the message to the overseas fans”
“After all the crimes he committed, he should stay in jail longer.”
On the flip side, there were also many who voiced their support for the disgraced K-pop star on socials. Seungri (real name Lee Seung-hyun (이승현)) was arrested for being involved in the “Burning Sun” scandal back in 2019. The scandal involved several celebrities, including idols of popular K-pop groups, and police officials. It was the largest scandal to hit the K-pop industry.
The former member of BIGBANG is currently serving one year and six months for 9 criminal charges, including embezzlement, violation of food sanitation laws, sexual assault, illegal camera filming, solicitation of prostitution, habitual illegal gambling, illegal foreign monetary transfer, assault, and more.
