G-Dragon, one of the biggest stars of K-pop, could have predicted the departure of his teammate Seungri in a 2017 video.
“Thank you for your support although we are only 4.”
The video, which was shot in 2017, was titled “BIGBANG 2017 Welcome Collection.” In the video, the members of BIGBANG had to write a letter to themselves and their fans, which would be read five years down the line.
In the video, G-Dragon stated that he wrote about Seungri quite a lot, and had mentioned him in his letter.
Seungri, visibly excited, asked G-Dragon:
You mentioned me?
G-Dragon replied to Seungri, stating that he thanked the VIP for their support even though they are only four people in the band. After this, Seungri interrupted G-Dragon before he could complete his sentence, asking him:
Wait, wait. Why only four? Why are we four after five years?
G-Dragon, being the peace-loving hero that he is, stated that he felt Seungri would still be in the Korean Army after five years, hence he said that BIGBANG will have four members in the future.

Seungri left BIGBANG, fulfilling G-Dragon’s prophecy
In 2019, Seungri became a central figure in an investigation. The investigation, carried out against Seoul’s Burning Sun club, is now known as the “Burning Man Scandal.” The singer, who was the owner of the club, was accused of using the club to traffic drugs, pr*stit*te min*rs, police corruption, evade taxes.
Seungri also posted on Instagram regarding the accusations.

This is Seungri.
I think it would be good for me to leave the entertainment industry at this point. I have decided to leave from the entertainment industry because there are too many issues happening right now. Once the investigations is done, I will sincerely address everything again.
In the past one month, I have been criticized and hated by the people and now that I am under investigation, I have once again been put in the spotlight and I wish it could stop.
I am very grateful to all the fans in Korea and abroad for all their love in the last 10 years and I am glad to have received all the love and honour together with Big Bang.
Once again, I’m sorry.
Thank you all for your time.girlstyle.com
