Drinking Party Ji Sang Ryeol is a brand new YouTube channel hosted by Ji Sang Ryeol, an actor, comic, and host. With their first video being uploaded solely a month in the past, the idea of the present is much like Lee Youngji‘s My Alcohol Diary in that the host and guest drink alcohol together while discussing various topics.

One of the guests to appear on Drinking Party Ji Sang Ryeol was rapper Swings. On the show, the co-host Yang Ki Woong asked Swings if he could try on his Rolex watch, and the two exchanged watches. While exchanging watches, Swings accidentally dropped Yang Ki Woong’s Casio watch and apologized.

However, Ji Sang Ryeol out of the blue chimed in, saying, “You need to drop it if you’re hip hop,” and requested Swings if he can break his Rolex watch. The host then proceeded to dunk the Rolex into Swings’ glass of alcohol, saying that it was waterproof—he did this with out getting consent from Swings.

As quickly as Ji Sang Ryeol dunked the watch into alcohol, the manufacturing workforce was heard saying “Ah…” and groaning and sighing in shock. This response didn’t sit properly with Ji Sang Ryeol as a result of he requested, “Did I do something that wrong?” He even requested the manufacturing workforce why they have been worrying a few watch greater than him.

The environment might have been awkward however Swings went together with it, saying that he must dunk the Rolex into Ji Sang Ryeol’s glass of alcohol too—and he did so. After getting drunk, Ji Sang Ryeol ultimately went house first, and Swings expressed his frustration on display, saying that Ji Sang Ryeol was annoying.

When this episode was uploaded on May 23, the video’s caption mentioned damaging issues about Swings and even dissed him for getting rejected by his ex-girlfriend, actress Lim Bo Ra.

I assumed he was hip hop, however he was only a motherfu… It’s no surprise he was rejected by L.B.R~ Swag

If you don’t like me this a lot, don’t invite me. Why did you invite me after which reveal your true emotions after the video was uploaded? I don’t just like the manufacturing workforce. Say it to my face. You instructed me I did nice then you definitely do that? I used to be nothing however good to you.

— Swings

This occasion grew to become extra controversial, understanding how a lot Swings adored his Rolex watch. In truth, a YouTube channel named PPKKa defined this entire controversy and revealed a video of Swings saying his Rolex is one in every of his most prized possessions—he mentioned liked it a lot that he wouldn’t even give it to his future child. His Rolex is estimated to be round ₩65.0 million KRW (about $48,900 USD).

Netizens have been livid on the means Swings was handled on the present and impressed on the means Swings dealt with the state of affairs.

  • “What’s up with making it private? If you have dignity, make it public and if you messed up, apologize. Making it private means that you know you did something wrong but you’re hiding it to avoid controversy. Ji Sang Ryeol, I’m so disappointed in you.”
  • “As a fan who loved Swings for the past ten years, this video made me uncomfortable. I’m confident that there is not one person in the production team who works hard, accomplishes things, isn’t afraid of a challenge, and has an influence on many people like Swing does—in other words, there is no one here better than Swings.”
  • “Swings is so kind and the way he handled it was so cool”
  • “A round of applause to the production team who showed us this level of disgrace”
  • “Ji Sang Ryeol, take responsibility and resign”
  • “It’s no wonder Ji Sang Ryeol is in the same place throughout the years…”
  • “Swings has earned a public sentiment that is worth more than donating 65 million won. He went on a show he didn’t necessarily have to appear on with a pure heart and got stabbed in the back—I hope he doesn’t get too hurt from this”
  • “Even if it’s a variety show, dunking someone’s prized watch in beer crosses the line. Seriously, Swings is amazing for tolerating that.”
  • “Swings was just whatever to me, but now I’m a fan. You’re so cool and I respect you. Hwaiting, Swings!!”
  • “I’m not a fan of Swings but this really crosses the line… I was shocked to see this on the news and came to watch the video. I can’t believe a channel like this exists… it only hurts Ji Sang Ryeol’s image…”
  • “Swings is a nice guy; we need to help him out”
