Ever since, fans were left disappointed and some even reject his involvement with BIGBANG.
However yesterday, the hashtag #ApologizeToSeungri suddenly flooded people’s Twitter and even climbed up in the top trending in several countries.

The truth was that Seungri is allegedly not guilty for the issue, instead becoming a victim of the situation. Further strengthen the speculation was there was no proof of Seungri getting involved in the situation as he did not give any response to the group chat.
Seungri volunteered to be investigated, left his group to protect them and exercise his right to defend himself. He is strong but remember this specific picture? He was clutching his suit, a gesture of fear & exhaustion, a distress tic. I will never forget. #ApologizeToSeungri pic.twitter.com/ruvCJfivYP

With that, the hashtag #ApologizeToSeungri became trending as petition for Korean medias to apologize of the false accusation towards the K-pop idol and the immoral act of spreading hoax news.
What the Korean medias had did was brutal; manipulating the truth which led to an innocent to be kept in captive by the police.
