Former BIGBANG Seungri’s sister asking for messages on her Instagram
As the post was written in English, Korean netizens pointed out that the post was deliberately directed towards Seungri’s international fans. Others stated that this is because Seungri’s sister is aware of how the former BIGBANG member has little to no fans left in South Korea following his involvement in the highly controversial “Burning Sun” scandal.
In addition, as the post garnered attention and spread to other social media platforms and online community sites, numerous netizens on The Qoo criticized Seungri’s sister and called her “shameless” for asking fans to continue supporting her brother despite his scandal.
Some comments from netizens read:
“She is so shameless.”
“He doesn’t deserve to miss his fans. This is insane.”
“Isn’t Seungri in prison?”
“She is so shameless. She knows that he doesn’t have fans in Korea anymore so she is directing the message to the international fans.”
“After all of the crimes that he committed, he should stay in prison longer.”
“Aren’t they both ashamed?”
Meanwhile, Seungri withdrew from BIGBANG back in March 2019 amid his “Burning Sun” scandal, and subsequently retired from the entertainment industry.

This includes violation of food sanitation laws, embezzlement, illegal foreign monetary transfer, habitual illegal gambling, illegal camera filming, sexual assault, assault, and solicitation of prostitution.
During his prosecution, Seungri also enlisted for his mandatory military service in March 2020, which transferred his case to the military court.
