Korean boy band Big Bang has addressed Seungri's scandals, saying that members had scolded him over these.
They added that Seungri is self-reflecting on what happened in the past weeks.
G-Dragon along with Taeyang and Daesung held the "GD Friends Live" session on the Korean portal Naver where they answered questions from fans.
“Seungri is doing well. Right now, he is filming in Japan,” G-Dragon said, according to Soompi.com.
In a matter of one week, Seungri was caught in two scandals in Japan and Hong Kong.
The first controversy erupted when Japanese magazine FRIDAY published what appeared to be photos of Seungri and a story by a woman in Japan who claimed that she had sex with the Big Bang member.
The woman alleged that Seungri was fond of choking his sexual partner and added lurid details of what happened between them. YG Entertainment did not address the issue.
In the second controversy, Hong Kong newspaper Apple Daily published photos and video of supposed intimate moments between Seungri and Japanese model and actress Anna Kubo in Hong Kong.
The video showed Kubo pulling Seungri by the hand and hugging him. She then kissed him on the cheek. Apple Daily described them as acting like lovers.
Seungri was in Hong Kong to film the Japanese drama "Kindaichi, Boy Detective: Hong Kong Murder Case".
YG Entertainment released a statement denying that it was a scandal.
During the Naver talk session, Taeyang said they scolded Seungri and the latter is thinking deeply about the incidents.
“I am going to speak frankly. Seungri got scolded a lot by us. He is self-reflecting. That makes sense, does it not? This is the kind of mistake a person can make, and actually, being like brothers, we can forgive or understand such a mistake. We also think this is the kind problem we can carry together. We scolded Seungri and we will try not to have such a thing happen in the future,” he said.
He added, “Actually, right now, I cannot say the words I love you. He still needs to time to reflect.”
G-Dragon, who himself was involved in a marijuana use scandal last year, promised to fans to have a better image next time.
“Even though it’s not really anyone’s place to scold, even as we act like this, we will make more effort to show our fans a better appearance. In the future, I think it is my part to think about how I can do better,” he said.
Big Bang is currently holding their Big Bang Alive Galaxy Tour 2012. They will hold the concert in Singapore from Sept. 28 to 29.
