The user of the ID had sent Gary such malicious comments as, ′Why is LeeSsang Company hosting Super 7? Are you trying to pay back the debt for your building with that money? I′ll understand if you donate the profits. All the profits....′ and ′Why is LeeSsang Company hosting [a concert] meant for the fans who waited [for Infinity Challenge] during the strike? It only makes Gil look like a guy who′s crazy for money.′
