YG denies reports of WINNER’s Lee Seung Hoon’s involvement in 2016 incident + clarifies nickname

YG Entertainment has released an official statement denying WINNER’s Lee Seung Hoon’s involvement in the 2016 case involving “A (Han Seo Hee),” as well as clarifying his Deputy Director Lee nickname.

On June 15, YG Entertainment released a statement that read as follows:

Hello, this is YG Entertainment.

The report that Lee Seung Soon is a deputy director of YG is not true, it is a simple misunderstanding.

“Deputy director” is a nickname Lee Seung Hoon has earned because he has suggested many ideas at the agency. The business cards in question were also one-time props that were used to create video content.

Also, it is not true that Lee Seung Hoon intervened in the controversy involving “A,” and we believe the police investigation will reveal this too. We sincerely ask that outlets refrain from speculative reports on this matter.


On June 14, Dispatch reported that Han Seo Hee had allegedly been contacted by WINNER’s Lee Seung Hoon before she was questioned by the police, where she mentioned B.I’s name in relation to drugs. Earlier, it was reported that Han Seo Hee was “A,” who allegedly spoke with B.I in messages about purchasing drugs in 2016.

I feel the irony with that 'misunderstanding' -__-

I've seen people on Tumblr painting BI's Ikon like a martyr that's been crucified. I don't think the guy is evil at all (the corp he works for is) but stupidity ain't innocence.
This all thing is a trip. The worst part is the bribing and corruption. So many lives shredded. Police is not to be trusted anywhere, that's the moral of it all >>

Yg using him as a scapegoat for distraction

his text msgs with "A" were leaked, he got himself involved in this mess, and now he's paying the price.

YG doesn't need scapegoats. All these people benefitted from his criminal acts.

Yeah, your credibility is zero though
evilcoc0nut 15th-Jun-2019 03:17 pm (UTC)
I mean they've lied about literally everything else so why should anyone believe them lol
scionofawhisper 15th-Jun-2019 03:33 pm (UTC)
Just gonna ask them not to instead of threatening to sue?
kimbafierce 15th-Jun-2019 04:08 pm (UTC)
Do they still expect people to believe them over hard evidence..? Is that it?
goldenrosalie 15th-Jun-2019 05:26 pm (UTC)
didn't even han seo hee say that when seunghoon decided to involve himself - he didn't even know whole situation? i find it quite possible and nothing about those messages suggested that he did anything scummy but like... all the more reasons not to involve yourself in someone else's business? his own fault and i don't believe this statement.

aaahhh at first i thought i was reading chats wrong .... i dont think he did drugs or wanted to but still somehow he got stuck with this drugdealer for no reason?

i do hope we get more details or context because those pieces of chats from years ago only make everyone look suspicious ... except , of course, drug dealer herself lmao

as i understand, in this specific case hsh wasn't the drug dealer but the middle person. b.i. asked her to link him to a drug dealer. she was trying to stop him from taking them. she was absolutely still involved, but she's not the main dealer.

If you’re talking about BI, he did do drugs. If you’re talking about Seunghoon then no, he did not do drugs but he was involved in witness tampering.

Han Seo Hee is already on probation. So she has nothing to lose here so your take on this is not accurate.

We may be reading the wrong chats or the translations are all wrong coz where's the lie baby? Where?
baekpedaling 15th-Jun-2019 09:20 pm (UTC)
To me, this sounds like someone higher up asked Seunghoon to get involved and contact Seohee since the whole thing was a set up for her to meet with someone else.
Seunghoon, boy, you gotta learn to say no
