Netizens are furious to see that former Big Bang member Seungri is continuing to enjoy the perks of being an idol, even performing at a private party in Malaysia.

His appearance happens to coincide with a documentary released by BBC on May 19 that details how two female Korean journalists exposed sex scandals involving prominent K-pop stars back in 2019.

The documentary Burning Sun: Exposing The Secret K-Pop Chat Groups has new footage around the nightclub scandal where Seungri is believed to have acted violently towards women.

He’s also accused of being the mastermind behind all immoral activities.

However, presently, the disgraced K-pop star is seen enjoying himself entertaining the audience in Malaysia in a viral video.

In that video, Seungri was captured performing at the birthday celebration of an entrepreneur.

The one-minute video shows Seungri singing the song Bang Bang Bang, which was popularised by his former group.

Wearing a grey suit, he was seen being very friendly with the guests at the event.

In the comments section, many Malaysian netizens expressed their anger and asked the public to boycott the singer due to his previous cruel actions towards women.

“Worried he’ll start a Burning Sun business here, afraid he’ll become a pimp for rich people in Malaysia too,” said one netizen.

“He has businesses in Malaysia, worried he’ll use them to cover his evil intentions,” added another.

“We don’t need him here, please send him back to his country,” a third chimed in.

For the record, Seungri served an 18-month prison sentence and was released in February 2023.

He was convicted on nine charges including arranging sex trafficking for foreign investors in 2015 and misappropriating funds from Burning Sun, a nightclub in Gangnam to which he was affiliated.

The court also found him guilty of eight accounts of illicit gambling.

Two other entertainers were convicted in the Burning Sun scandal.

Choi Jong-hoon of K-pop band FT Island was released in 2021, after two years and six months in prison. Singer Jung Joon-young's prison term ends in October 2025.
