Did you know that BIGBANG‘s SeungRi originally owns a Japanese ramen store chain in Korea? If you did not know, the shop name is called Aori Ramen.
On Feb. 11, it was reported by several Korean media outlets that SeungRi had apparently stepped down from his ramen shop business in the midst of the “Burning Sun” controversy. It was also reported that SeungRi has plans to enter the military in March or April this year.
With that being said, netizens reacted negatively to SeungRi as it seemed to many that the idol was trying to ‘stay away’ from any possible trouble by ‘escaping’ into the military.
One netizen also pointed out that even if SeungRi stepped down from his position, he would still be able to earn money as he most probably owns the shares of the restaurant.
What do you think of the situation?
