It is a sad day for VIP. Amid all of the allegations against him, Seungri has made the decision to leave the entertainment industry. You can read more here His message:
“This is Seungri.
At this moment, it seems like it would be good for me to retire from the entertainment industry. I've decided to retire from the entertainment industry because of the huge social controversy that has arisen. I am under investigation, and I will receive investigation with sincerity so that the building suspicions can be revealed.
During the past month and a half, I have received criticism and hate from the public and been in a situation where every investigative agency in this country is investigating me. I just cannot accept causing pain to those around me just for my sake.
I would like to sincerely thank all of the fans both in and out of Korea who have shown me love for the past ten years. For the sake and honor of Big Bang and YG, [my career is] ending here.
I would like to apologize one more time.
Thank you for everything throughout the years” This news has absolutely broken my heart. Big Bang brought me into Kpop and have always been my favorite group. Please, no negative comments or fighting - this day is hard enough for VIP. ***Update*** YG released a statement regarding Seungri's retirement: "We have belatedly confirmed that Seungri has released a message to the public about retirement. It was something that he uploaded himself without consulting YG Entertainment first," they commented. "Currently, we have no additional comment we want to add in regards to this. It has still yet to be decided whether or not his contract will be terminated. We will let you know once the situation is figured out."
