I Want To Know That’s Converage On The Burning Sun

This is the summary of today’s episode.

Recap of the main points of today's 'I Want to Know That' episode on the Burning Sun gate

Club Burning Sun’s ex-employee: That person’s scale is tremendously big. The triad (T/N: organized crime syndicate from China – they do drug traffic, counterfeit, etc.). They even brought the big boss.

1.Madame Lin and the triad

  • They are related. When Lin came to the Burning Sun to visit, the triad gangsters came along, there is also a picture with Lin’s manager together with the group.
  • Seeing how one of the visitors said that if they did drug in China, it’s death penalty and that the Burning Sun is a place where drugs are distributed, it can be alluded that Chinese visitors come to Korea for drugs purposes.
  • Lin is a big investor to of the Burning Sun. The triad’s illegal money was laundered into ‘clean money’ through the Burning Sun (T/N: money laundering is the process of making illegal money appear as ‘legal’). An analysis of the money that Lee Moonho (Burning Sun’s CEO) received already revealed that significant money made from tax evasion flowed into his pockets.

2.Seungri and Yuri Holdings

  • A company worth 50,000 won in capital was able to attract an astronomical amount of foreign investors
  • Seungri used his ‘Bigbang’ tag to gather thousands and millions of won from investors
  • He sold women to wealthy foreign investors to earn their favor
  • In the end, by investing almost nothing, he ended up with 20% of the Burning Sun’s shares (through Yuri Holdings).
  • Even though Yuri Holdings is doing a lot of business in the restauration world, the accounting analyst judged that it is difficult for the company to be making so much money from franchises. Hence, the analyst concluded that it was highly possible that Yuri Holdings’ profit was partly from the Burning Sun. Ultimately, Yuri Holdings is an investor of the Burning Sun Club.

3.The police

  • They cleared the charges of closing down the Burning Sun’s business even though minors were admitted to the club.
  • A witness of the victim who got raped in the VIP room after taking the date-rape-drug called the 112 (Korean emergency number), but the police never showed up. When the police was inquired about this incident, they said that there was no issue. But after confirming with the victim’s phone log, she did call the 112. The police lied. (T/N: this part is a bit unclear)
  • Mr. Kang, a former police officer who got arrested received around 2-5 million won per month (collusion) from the Burning Sun/Seungri.
  • Club Arena’s tax evasion was reported by a prosecutor but the case was later transferred to the Gangnam Police. The amount of tax evaded was estimated to be 28 billion won. However, the case was moved to be handled by only one policeman. It is weird how the Gangnam Police was unable to handle a case of such scale.
  • The ‘I Want to Know That’ crew received an official document from the police asking them not to “defame the police’s character”. Kim Sang Jeung (I Want to Know That’s MC) said that the police has never contacted him that many times ever since he started doing the show.
