“A” exposes YG’s alleged ties with police and involvement in B.I’s case

“A” has reported to the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission on suspicions of YG Entertainment’s ties to the police.

On June 12, it was reported that B.I allegedly attempted to purchase illegal drugs from an individual referred to as “A” in 2016. During an initial investigation, “A” testified that they had delivered the LSD to B.I, but when questioned again, “A” changed their testimony to say that while they had discussed the possible purchase of drugs, they did not actually obtain any drugs for B.I.

The report suspected Yang Hyun Suk of having attempted to influence the testimony of “A,” but YG issued a statement saying that they only met with “A” to check their testimony about B.I.

A news article from Newsis on June 13 states that “A” anonymously submitted a document to the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission about YG Entertainment covering up the case using their ties with the police on June 4. The document was submitted through lawyer Bang Jung Hyun, who previously also sent the KakaoTalk conversation data between Jung Joon Young, Seungri, and others to the Commission on behalf of a whistleblower.

The document reportedly contains information about B.I and illegal drugs, YG’s intervention with the police investigation on “A” in 2016, suspicions of ties between the police and YG, and other information on additional situations that have not been revealed yet.

A source familiar with the case stated, “As far as I know, ‘A’ decided to submit the document despite the danger of being punished [for drug use] after seeing that the suspicions of Burning Sun’s ties with the police were not clearly resolved.”

The Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission will reportedly review the report through a task force team, and if they find the data credible, they will transfer the case to the police or prosecution. Traditionally, reporting to the Commission allows the whistleblower to remain anonymous and request protection.

am i the only one feeling weird about the amount of people who signed that petition to keep BI?
do these people even realize who they are supporting? (yg)

nope, it's gross, you're right to feel weird, but these are also the people who call anything against YG and Seungri 'fake news' because he hasn't been to court yet
aures 13th-Jun-2019 10:02 am (UTC)
thanks for saying this, i kept questioning myself like am i really that weird because i feel absolutely grossed out by it?
the boy did something illegal, he deserves punishment - people are supporting them "because it's okay to do drugs and he does not deserve punishment" - no sis, that is not how illegal works, killing someone "because it's okay" also does not make it okay to not receive any punishment

also, YG messing everything up, doing illegal stuff? that company deserves to go down and people who defend YG are blind to the obvious
i mean, i said earlier to someone else, i can understand a thing, or 2 or even 3, i get that people and companies make mistakes, life is not easy and i get that you sometimes do things you shouldnt but it's what you do with that mistake is what's important (like JYP paying for the whole company to get back home safe when they go out drinking in order for them not to drunk drive, that's a really fine example of taking action)
YG is .... it's unforgivable

sorry for the rant

it's just so messed up and i'm pissed that people don't even go to court (yet) when it's SO CLEAR
there is a reason YG is burning evidence in the middle of the night

I agree with everything you said - I recommend you stay away from fandom twitter and places like soompi. r/kpop has quite a good comment section who will validate a lot of what you're feeling because the mods there don't tolerate fandom conspiracy nonsense.

I switch between there and omona because the commenters are sane, but the amount of comments on reddit can be overwhelming so I like this small community when I get swamped
aures 13th-Jun-2019 10:12 am (UTC)
yes, soompi is also no good, i absolutely agree
i'm grossed out that big "news" sites keep retweeting and posting stuff about that petition, it's awful

thanks for saying that, it can be overwhelming indeed... also it angers me lol and that's no good either!

I keep seeing comments of people saying owning drugs is not illegal so if he didn't take it it's not a problem. I'm just sitting here like ??? it very much is illegal? Like what kind of oppa didn't mean it nonsense
sjtaazrz 13th-Jun-2019 07:39 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I saw people on tumblr saying he was being punished for THINKING about doing drugs at a "very difficult time" in his life when he was depressed. People were like 'yg is crazy for getting rid of a talented kid who spend about half his life as a trainee for them."

He wasn't just contemplating it in his room to himself, he was talking to a dealer and was all "ㅋㅋ" about it back and forth with him.

Nah, it’s totally normal since fans have no brains. Just look at the replies everywhere else but here. I have only seen support. It’s only the 1% who thinks this rationally. They all want YG to go down cause of kicking BI so soon or something but they are not willing to boycott YG lol

aures 13th-Jun-2019 11:51 am (UTC)
thanks for saying this!

how can people not see that BI did something illegal? there is no way around it, just because those fans think it's totally fine for their idols to buy drugs using the money they spent on concerts/albums/whatever does not make it legal???? he did wrong, he deserves punishment, it's that clear

sometimes i just want to shake up those people, i get that it's a shock, i absolutely do, i'm a fan of a couple of japanese [idol] groups for almost 11 years, i've been through stuff, i know that when shit goes down it's heartbreaking, but still... wrong is wrong

yg burning stuff in the middle of the night is wrong, [most of] their artists doing drugs illegally is wrong, YG is a bad person, how can people not see this

it blows my mind how far people can go to support someone, it scares me so much (it's almost like "big leader is always right" propaganda)
belintuchiha 13th-Jun-2019 11:58 am (UTC)
I agree. I know it’s “just” weed for people but at the end of the day, the law is the law so we can’t just ignore that lol

And it really is crazy and terrifying just how easily it is for people to ignore facts and go so hard for people who don’t even know they exist. And we are not only talking of teens but adults here. Of all genders and races. It’s the typical “He wouldn’t do that!!”
And now they’re all blaming the dealer as if he was forced to buy the drugs when we all saw the messages lol
aures 13th-Jun-2019 12:08 pm (UTC)
absolutely, it's the korean law, they are korean citizens, so they have to abide to that
people look at it with western eyes, just because where you (the supporters) come from it's "okay", does not mean it's okay in other cultures and other countries, calling a whole country out on it it's just wrong
i mean, i do not agree with the whole corruption in that country, but indeed, at the end of the day, the law is the law
(it's sad that YG has his own law though, i read somewhere that the korean public said that there are 2 laws, one for the rich and one for the poor and it broke my heart because it's /so/ true)

they blame the dealer? wow, what in those messages was not clear? i mean the dealer even warned him to not buy that much because it's bad stuff, WOW, how can they do this????? next thing we know the dealer put it in his mouth by force???

i wonder when we will get a sympathy wheelchair again

Fandoms definitely have cult like mentalities
suggestivepeach 13th-Jun-2019 02:02 pm (UTC)

Nope. I’ve seen nothing but support for him and cries of injustice on twitter, and the few who do speak up about it (not even necessarily against him? I’ve seen ppl simply point out that YG can’t be trusted and we can’t necessarily take these people at their word) and a hoard of people will flood that person’s mentions screaming at them to “focus on your faves.” Shutting down all forms of discussion and criticism just to protect your idols is not productive or helpful at all.

I mean, I think B.I. deserves some compassion here, because this crime isn't on the level of, I don't know, SEUNGRI, but the boy broke the law, and should face consequences. I assume some of the outrage is what is happening to B.I. seems disproportionate to other trash male idols, and I definitely feel some of that sympathy. And it sucks that he works hard, and is (at least temporarily) tossed out. HOWEVER, consequences are consequences, and hopefully this heralds a shift where trash gets punished more often.

The petition people are going to far. Some of the fan stuff makes me less sympathetic to B.I., because no fans, no.
