1. [+3,321, -40] You mean you were kicked out ㅋ

2. [+3,177, -57] "In a situation where society is branding me a rebel" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ you make it sound like we're cornering you with nothing but rumors

3. [+2,991, -50] Well duh you should retire;;; just make sure you finish investigations, don't think you can weasel yourself out of this

4. [+254, -3] Do you really think this is the time for you to be writing out some post about retiring? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ The public is branding you? You've still sold any shame you have, haven't you.

5. [+231, -7] What retirement? You're being kicked out.

1. [+2,545, -32] Why are police investigating this case???????? Shouldn't special investigations be on it at this point????? It's quite obvious that there are a lot of higher-ups involved ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+2,203, -13] Ban him from enlisting too

3. [+1,826, -12] It's over now, he should work on being a human being

4. [+88, -1] There are obviously a lot of children of higher officials involved in this and I think Seungri is being used as the sacrifice to cut the scandal at its tail

5. [+84, -2] Airport bans are decided by the Minister of Justice.... which means that there's just a lot of evidence against Seungri right now ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

1. [+430, -8] Don't think the whole scandal ends with Seungri~ investigate this thoroughly until punishment reaches everyone at the top

2. [+358, -10] When I saw D Nation post Park Bom and Sandara Park's new song as soon as Seungri's retirement was announced, I realized what a scary place the entertainment industry is..

3. [+291, -9] Don't get ready to run away, get ready to go to jail!!

4. [+39, -2] Yang CEO: Yah! Take care of this on your end! They keep trying to investigate me too!

5. [+26, -2] So where's YG's statement on them accusing the Katalks of being fake? Yang CEO basically fanned the fire on this one. If he's going to retire, he might as well expose something big on Yang CEO and go out with a bang. Imagine how much fishy stuff is going on with him.

1. [+9,371, -84] This article is wording it funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ "Seungri has taken out his retirement card" what is this, Yu Gi Oh?

2. [+7,910, -108] There are a lot of errors in his statement. Lee Seung Hyun-ssi seems to be calling this a retirement but this is basically an exile from the industry. He claims he's being unfairly branded by society like he's being wrongfully accused of something he didn't do. And to claim his retirement is to protect YG and Big Bang's honor? Who exactly is doing this for who? Did he not think that we know that he's just the tail to this scandal? We're in this until we see not only Big Bang and YG but Lee Seung Hyun and everyone involved with Burning Sun pay the price of their crimes. He seems to want to be remembered as someone responsible, as someone loyal to YG, and I can already sense his rage and regret at being caught right through his post ㅋㅋ how shameless.

3. [+4,905, -66] Journalist Kang Kyung Yoon and the victim Kim Sang Kyo claim they still have more to expose you with so just wait. This isn't going to end just because you retire.

4. [+4,515, -78] "Branded as a rebel by the nation" ㅋㅋ a rebel? Do you really think you're that special? Just call it criminal treatment and leave it at that ㅋㅋ

5. [+3,772, -73] This isn't a retirement, this is permanent exile for you, you ba$tard

1. [+7,244, -81] It might not only be the end for your career but your life too ㅋㅋ There are already articles saying you're banned from leaving the country, which is decided by the Minister of Justice... there's just that much evidence against you ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+4,507, -51] Not like you can ever come back again, what does retiring matter at this point

3. [+3,344, -52] Seungri: I'm not a celebrity anymore so leave me alone

4. [+1,806, -59] Nah, you're a criminal

5. [+928, -6] Investigate Yang Hyun Suk too, we can't allow them to end this with Seungri

1. [+5,390, -82] You're being kicked out, what retirement? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+3,442, -35] He's treating this like he's leaving some group chat..

3. [+2,796, -44] His statement basically reads like, "I did nothing wrong but now that you're all investigating all the other celebrities in the Katalk room, I can't stand it. I've already made enough, I can live well off of the money I've already made so bye."

4. [+2,252, -56] He made no apology to his victims, just talked blah about the honor of 10 years of Big Bang and his fans or whatever. How shameless until the end.

5. [+447, -13] What honor is left to YG and Big Bang at this point? ㅋㅋㅋ Hilarious


Article: 'Rebuke' 'Hatred' 'Branded as a rebel'... what makes Seungri's retirement announcement uncomfortable

Source: Sports World via Nate

1. [+151, -3] I read his post and he's a psychopath. He wrote it without consideration for the emotions of anyone else but himself. Branded as the rebel? You crazy ba$tard, that word is there for you to use like this. He's a monster who utterly disgusts me but going into his Instagram and seeing how there are so many brainless foreign b*tches... If you still like him no matter what he does, you crazy South East Asian b*tches can go work right alongside him at his liquor and drug store, tsk tsk tsk.

2. [+124, -2] The fact that he wrote "branded as a rebel" made me realize he still doesn't get it. He still thinks he's being unfairly accused right now.

3. [+117, -3] Playing dirty until the end. He's treating the public like we're being unfair to him.

4. [+12, -0] Total psycho who still doesn't know what he did wrong... He made a lot of money for someone with no talent and acted out of line... Jail him immediately.

5. [+9, -0] Can't fix that character of his, just send him to jail
