Actress Go Joon Hee tearfully pleaded her innocence regarding the Burning Sun Gate scandal and explained her side of the situation years later!

Recently, the actress guest appeared on a YouTube show and talked about what she’s been up to and addressed the Burning Sun scandal and how she was falsely implicated in it.

Host Jang Sung-kyu brought up the topic, saying, “There was a rumor, which you had no connection to, but your name became a related search term recently when the BBC covered Burning Sun.”

In response, Go Joon Hee angrily said, “That Bast*rd.” She continued, “Honestly, I don’t understand why my name is associated with Burning Sun. I don’t even know where Burning Sun is, and I’ve never been there. I’ve been saying for years that it wasn’t true, but no one listened, and only parts of my explanations were edited and broadcasted.”

Go Joon Hee had been suspected of being connected to the Burning Sun Gate scandal due to her association with Seungri, a former member of BIGBANG. During the 2019 Burning Sun scandal, an online messenger conversation involving Seungri was revealed, mentioning that a certain actress could not be invited to an investor meeting because she was in New York. This led to speculation that the actress was Go Joon Hee, who was older and in the same agency as Seungri at the time.

Go Joon Hee mentioned that a single photo taken with Seungri was the catalyst for the rumors. She explained, “I went to a breast cancer campaign event with that guy (Seungri). He was in the same agency as me and asked for a selfie, so I took one picture with him.” She added, “I didn’t know he posted that photo because we didn’t follow each other on Instagram.”

After the Burning Sun incident, Go Joon Hee found out about her involvement in the rumors through friends. She expressed her disappointment with her former agency, YG Entertainment, saying, “I thought it would be resolved if the company clarified it wasn’t true, but they neglected it. An actor’s image is everything, and they couldn’t even release one article to clear my name. So I left the company and hired a lawyer on my own.”

She also shared that missing the timing to clarify the Burning Sun rumors led her to step down from scheduled projects. Go Joon Hee tearfully revealed, “My mom developed vertigo. I was okay, but people kept asking her, ‘Are you okay?’ She heard it so much that she developed vertigo and kept it hidden from me.”

Go Joon Hee had filed a complaint against those who spread the malicious rumors related to Burning Sun, accusing them of defamation under the Information and Communications Network Act.

At the time, her legal representative stated, “The rumors about her being the actress involved in the Burning Sun scandal are completely false and were maliciously fabricated by toxic YouTubers and netizens.”
