1. "Flash didn't know what he was doing, he was the victim"
Let's blast this lie out first. Flash was involved as a financial advisor to a coin trading company called FoblGate, so it's really naive to assume that he didn't know that his actions would directly harm his viewers. After being thrown under the bus, even Suit (the crypto maker) himself asks why the progamers would sign the contract if they didn't think they'd get anything out of it.
2. Flash doesn't regret a goddamn thing
There was a recorded conversation between the ex-pros and Suit caught up in this mess. Flash talks about how he and others can recuperate their image to get back to broadcasting. Does this sound like someone who regrets putting their loyal fans' wallets at risk?
3. Hell yes they were paid to advertise the cryptocurrency
People seem to be in denial about this, but Suit and the people involved signed a contract that guaranteed some return to the progamers even if the cryptocurrency zeroed out. It's insanity to think Suit would guarantee returns without something in return, the most obvious answer being advertisement. Now why would broadcasters be guaranteed pay and asked to bring up the cryptocurrency on the streams? Why would Flash 'apologize' about the impact his actions would have on the viewers after the truth was found out? I'm legitimately curious what other than a pump and dump scam do some of you think this was.
4. Flash sold out his own mother...
Not that this is illegal, but this is really damns Flash's image for me personally. On June 23rd, Flash claimed that his mother put in 200 million Won (~$175,000) after talking with Suit, which is ridiculous for a 28 year old man who makes more in half a year than a common salarymen does in a decade. Of course it's ridiculous, as his future postings (like the one on June 30th in the same link) mysteriously never mention his mother again when the truth about his involvement came out.
5. Flash was the broker beyond the shadow of a doubt
Brittney confessed that Flash was the one who did this to start. Remember, Brittney is practically blacklisted due to his previous scandal, and incriminating Flash doesn't make him any less innocent anyhow. Not to mention, Flash's explanation of what happened makes no logical sense. His stance is that he invited popular streamers for drinks, and Suit just happened to call at the right time and joined in, and after some coddling got them on board. First time is maybe a coincidence, but this happened twice when Flash invited other streamers over for drinks. It doesn't take much imagination to see those meetings as being planned well in advance.
TL;DR: They knew exactly what they were doing, and are feigning victimhood to be able to broadcast again.
KCM put it best when he said that these four rose to stardom due to their fans and decided to return the favour with a knife in the back. As a fan of Bisu, I feel a little bad him as he invested a day before the news broke out. That doesn't change the fact that he was smiling at the thought of making millions of Wons off his fans' misery though.
I can't deny that I want to see Bisu and Flash play again, but I hope the fans never forget about this incident.
