승리입니다 제가 이시점에서 연예계를 은퇴를하는것이 좋을거같습니다. 사회적 물의를 일으킨 사안이 너무나 커 연예계 은퇴를 결심했습니다 수사중인 사안에 있어서는 성실하게 조사를 받아 쌓인 모든 의혹을 밝히도록 하겠습니다. 지난 한달반동안 국민들로부터 질타받고 미움받고 지금 국내 모든 수사기관들이 저를 조사하고 있는 상황에서 국민역적 으로까지 몰리는 상황인데 저 하나 살자고 주변 모두에게 피해주는일은 도저히 제스스로가 용납이 안됩니다 지난 10여 년간 많은 사랑을 베풀어준 국내외 많은 팬분들께 모든 진심을 다해 감사드리며 와이지와 빅뱅 명예를 위해서라도 저는 여기까지인거같습니다 다시한번 죄송하고 또 죄송합니다 그동안 모든분들께 감사했습니다

In the post, he writes that for the betterment of his company and group he will retire from the entertainment industry due to the social contraversy that has been surrouning him for the past few months. 
"For the past month and a half, I've been criticized and hated by the public, and I've been going through all the investigative agencies in the country, and I've been driven to the role of the people, and I can't allow myself to hurt everyone around me." Seungri writes. He apologizes for his actions and states he is thankful for his fans. 
The social contravery in question is an ongoing police investigation into messages from 2015 between Seungri, CEO Yoo of Yuri Holdings, and an employee that implied the men were hiring prostitutes at Club Arena for foreign buisness investors. YG and Yuri Holdings deined the claims, Seungri has since agreed to comply with the investigations. The investigation is still ongoing. Read more about it here.

Seungri isn't completely innocent in all of this but it's still sad how he's being the fall guy in everything. There's something larger at play here. There are more powerful people behind this scandal and Seungri is just the scapegoat.
