Big Bang fans are suspicious of Japanese tabloid magazine Friday‘s reports about Seungri being involved in a sex scandal.
On September 13th, Friday reported an article about Seungri having sexual relations with a female, and published a few photos of a male they claim to be Seungri, lying in bed.The article also included a testimony from the woman allegedly involved, but YG has yet to release an official statement on the scandal, causing fans to step forward in an attempt to find out the truth.
Immediately, a group of fans released ‘proof’ that the photos were manipulated. They argued that there were a few areas that looked unnatural when it came to photos of his face and back, and that the published photos were photoshopped with a photo of a man who looked very similar to Seungri.
The fans continued to argue that the angles of his face and neck look unnatural, while the skin color of his face and body look different as well. Some netizens responded to the ‘proof’, saying, “That’s what I thought“, “Of course they are photoshopped“, and more.
But a few number of netizens believe that the man in the photos really is Seungri, especially after YG has failed to step up and deny the reports. “It maybe a tabloid magazine, but they’re not a media outlet that would manipulate photos“, they said, in addition to “The proof isn’t enough to say that it was photoshopped,” and more.
