BIGBANG‘s Seungri had recently been caught up in charges of soliciting prostitution, embezzlement, being a part of Jung Joon Young’s sexcam chatroom, and more. But fans began trending “#ApologizeToSeungri” on Twitter after KBS released all of Jung Joon Young’s illegal sex cam messages to his friends and various chatrooms.
Among the list, Seungri was listed once when Jung Joon Young shared illegally taken graphics into a chatroom where Seungri, his business partners, and he were included.

KBS managed to obtained 67-page #JungJoonYoung's sentence ruling document from the Court, contains details of his chats which were indicted (there are 12 of them)

Fans also pointed out how Seungri responded with rage when an illegal sex cam was uploaded into the chatroom.
Seungri: “XX What idiot f*cking uploaded a video taken at a room salon XX This XX”
C: “We all don’t upload it because we know we shouldn’t…”
Other fans referred to an article released back in March of this year where SBS funE admitted to editing Yong Junhyung (former member of HIGHLIGHT) into a group chat when Jung Joon Young had actually sent him an illegal sexcam through a 1:1 chat.
They claim the media probably also lied about Seungri’s involvement.
I had doubts about Seungri when this was initially coming out. Was he really like that? Was the Ri I knew fake?
SBS ADMITTED TO FALSIFYING a chat.
They DELIBERATELY LIED.

Seungri’s fans rose up enmasse as they demanded that reporters and the media all apologize to Seungri. They claim he is innocent and was framed.
Seungri was wrongly accused of many things he had never done. His name was all over the news. He was the face of the scandal. What did he do to be the face of Korea’s biggest scandal? Ruined his 13 year career! I will never forgive and I will never forget!#apologizetoseungri pic.twitter.com/o54yiOIgpA

Up until now, he's only asked us the one thing:
"I ask you to wait for the results of the investigation. I will cooperate sincerely with the investigation so that the truth can be disclosed as soon as possible”

from the start we told you seungri wasn’t involved in this case and that HE IS INNOCENT . The only group chat he was in was a business group chat and he responded to the video like this IF EVERYONE DOESNT APLOGISE TO SEUNGRI 😤pic.twitter.com/baly4UexWJ #ApologizeToSeungri

On the other hand, other netizens are claiming he still committed crimes and that just because he wasn’t in the chatroom doesn’t mean he is innocent of everything else.
seungri may not have officially been apart of the group chat, but he still received at least one video and he did not say one fucking thing. his silence helped enable the atrocities and abuse women were being forced to succumb to. FUCK HIM ALWAYS. no apologies.

they’re just recycling and rehashing the same facts and trying to twist them to frame seungri as innocent. sighs

tw // seungri
why should i apologize to a person who stood & watched awful things unfold. someone who thinks rape is okay & that women should be taken advantage off. he may not have “partaken” but he’s an accessory to such awful crimes, so please tell me, why should i apologize

Neither the police nor Seungri have spoken up about the recent claims made by the fans. Jung Joon Young, Choi Jonghoon, and more involved in the sexcam chatrooms have been found guilty and sentenced to multiple years in prison. Seungri has most recently been investigated by the police for gambling accusations, but he was sent home without further actions as of now.
