Big Bang's Seungri Angers Netizens Over His Instagram Post

Big Bang's Seungri can't stop getting into the news over photos these days. Before he was in the spotlight for photos surfacing of him on a private vacation with a Filipino super model and now he has angered netizens over his recent Instagram post.

On August 15th, which is Korea's National Liberation Day, Seungri uploaded a photo to his Instagram of him at a concert in Malaysia. However, the problem which angered fans was a camera man's sticker with the 'Rising Sun' flag image on the front, which was visible in Seungri's photo down below.

While fans argued it was a symbol for the broadcasting station in Malaysia, others argued and compared it to the previous scandal involving Girls' Generation's Tiffany last summer. 

Angry fans had left the following comments on his photo saying, "Can he not tell that that's the rising sun flag? That's sickening", "He's now at the point where he's just being ignorant to his fans and Koreans". He has since deleted the photo in response. 

What do you think of the photo? Are fans over reacting or was it truly disrespectful?
