    The drug usage of YG should not be a scandal people in music and movies industries take drugs..nothing new there...the actual scandalous part is the prostitution usage for business deals...now, that’s a crime

    To be honest? what they say about S.K having a bad image internationally is actually true but it's because of the people itself not just YG.. how koreans treat YG artist is unfair. They shouldn't boycott those innocent artist but rather support them

  • Please say opinions with evidence

    Honestly, if innocent artist get bashed over the other artists wrong doing that just some bs.

    참 이런 영상 보면 왜 아시안보스가 한국에서 욕 먹는지 알 수 있는. YG 스캔들이 꼭 마약 문제뿐인걸로 얘기하고 편집하고 있어.
    애초에 승리 버닝썬부터 시작한 권력형 비리라는거 뻔히 다들 아는데 뭔... 거기에 마약 사건까지 줄줄이 딸려 나오고, 성매매 혐의까지 나왔다는거 다들 아는데...
    양현석이 소속가수들 마약 때문에 검찰 포토라인에 섰음? 지금 사람들이 YG 마약 문제 때문에 분노 하는거임?
    버닝썬 게이트 때문에 경찰 유착, 마약, 성범죄, 불법 동영상 촬영, 성접대 등등 모든 혐의가 같이 터져나온건데 뭔 영상을 이따구로 만들었는지?

    "I have foreign friends" , proceeds to say "Why no song Korean?", hmm...that is not how you say it and his "friends" didn't help him out, highly suspicious

    From the interview it shows Koreans are not that smart.
    None of them questions about the accuracy of the news or stay neutral before the judgement.
    Let these fools blindly walk on the media leash and proud of its high moral standard society.
    YG should leave Korea and set up in other countries like Japan or US.

    Am I the only one who got shook at the Jenny AND Yang Hyun Suk comment??? I'm remembering the Idol who committed suicide & left a list of the people her company forced her on.
    I don't care about the drugs (◔_◔) but the prostitute thing?
    Are Companys Pimps now?
    The thing I hate most about this industry is that you never know whats going on exactly; they present themselves oneway but covertly do things that will blow your mind (or not) in another.

  • Kpop Taeyeon

    YG Ent.promotes a very different music and so even the artists like 2ne1,Big Bang and the likes of Blackpink portrays a more to heavy rock metal image.From a certain point it's more on the badass skinheads,rap and swaggering feel which captivates a large number of young korean audience.From the visual and songs this is highly depicted.Look at it from the image point,it's got everything from a well blended west meets k-pop cultural trait.Having said this,nothing is out of the abnormal.

  • No Body

    Bila isu drugs di kaitkan rasa nya semua entertainment akan melindungi artis2 mereka, yg semua tahu melalui zaman training dan menunggu masa untuk debut akan bagi depression yg sangat tggi. Bagi aku, yg ent jadi mangsa bagi pihak yg ingin menjatuhkan compeny yg besar ini.. Kalau dlu cuma ada 3 nama besar dlm industry korea skrg ada 4... Persoalan nya sepatut nya begini. Siapa yg ingin jatuhkan YG dan kenapa. Isu dadah mula di kaitkan dgn artis yg dari zaman bigbang dan 2ne1.. Masalah nya, kenapa mereka menyerang hanya YG ent??

    This affect not only K-pop music image, but Korea image to the rest of the world. I mean every country had it's own problems, but Korea seems to feel like growing opportunity of busines.

    I still love all YG artist. Nothing has changed. of course, they have to be held responsible for what they did but that does not mean we can't listen to their music. I am not going to stop listening to Winner, or GD. I do hope that they change the way they manage their company. There must be a reason why these artist are trying to use drugs or have used. As for Seungri, I always believed that there was something fishy about him. That is why he was always my least favorite. I don't know, there was always a weird vibe about him since the beginning.

    After these scandals, how about the actual smuggling of CJ Group heir Lee Sun ho? Since CJ Group is a big company (which holds a lot of sectors), I wonder how Koreans are viewing this. I'm just putting it here in case you can do an interview or maybe not.

  • Wonderful World

    I think all started suddenly this year to blame at once on many issues on YG to bring him down because they are somebody that’s associated with the ‘Big People’ who are involved in some illegal acts. They just wanna cover it up by blaming many faults of YG who knows ‘what happened and who was involved. ‘
    Lot’s of people are not stupid to see the overall scenarios here. We are smart enough to see the picture here.
    YG has been in the entertainment business since 1990 ( 20 years ago).
    Why this year suddenly after that Seungri scandals started ( which is closer to exposing the ‘big people’ involved in illegal acts such higher ranks local enforcements and some big shots people ) , then all of the sudden, all these targets has been suddenly finding faults on YG. it’s a part of a diversion towards the bigger culprit up above who are powerfull in SK. Somebody wants to put him down coz he knows too much. Use your logical sense of thinking, it’s soo obvious that people can think and see that.

    I've seen this coming for years. As a YG stan it's hard to watch. But YG's bad management practices are well known.
    But even I didn't expect YG to go this low. But then again we are talking about the same CEO here. Who basically ruined his wife's debut.
    Just so he could marry her, scumbag lol. Now with the latest developments adding money laundering to the growing list of troubles.
    I'm beginning to wonder if YG will recover from this. I just hope Lee Hi & CL can finally escape this nightmare.
    The way both of them have been treated lately constitutes abuse as far as I'm concerned. But what happens to YG now is anyone's guess. :/

    All I can say is....only the artist of YGE are being attacked since the first day of this year.

    Jennie dating issue ( it's not a scandal for me)
    Yunhyeong dating issue
    GD issue in military
    B.I attempt to use "marijuana" not drugs on 2016
    Yang Hyun Suk's scandal

    About the burning sun scandal, I can't trust Seungri rn but I can't trust the media too.

    It's obvious that there's something wrong happening yet people use this as an opportunity to bring down yge and yg artist.

    "People all over the world know about YG entertainment, it's been a company that has promoted Korea to other countries."
    And, it's just so easy for her to say she wanted the company to dissapear.

    They change the CEO but the system is still the same. They don't appreciate and respect their artists. They don't give justice to anyone. They don't treat them well.

    Lol so much hypocrisy tbh. Like they criticise the use of drugs but drink till they pass out in the streets. Or the actual prostitute service going on in the country.
    Honestly the biggest problem in Korea is the fact that they try to paint everything on pink when the reality is so different.
    Ps: Foreigners dont really give a fudge about this kind of scandals.

    LEXUS 3 months ago

    Lol if that new CEO lady have a brain should take that cursed YG name off before she takes over, that name will bring her down and whomever takes over after that. It’s got a black mark now, that name is beyond repair. I hope this doesn’t link to JYP in anyway since they’re best friends.

    • BlazinNSoul

      Nothing is beyond repair if reforms start talking pla YG's problems are grounded with Yang Hyun-Suk. A fossel who's time is finally up & change can still happen let's hope. :/

    Yang Hyun-suk was part of Seo Taiji and Boys. He is the exact opposite of Seo Taiji, who stayed true to the music. Hyun-suk sold out and cashed in, creating a system in which a revolutionary band like Seo Taiji and Boys has no chance.

      I get your point, but did you read the title?😂 I like your idea though, it would be nice if they could somehow make a thorough investigation on every agency and shed some light on the dark side of the industry for us.👍🏼Lately a lot has been going on with YG Ent.( which is probably why it got a report on it in this video) but other agencies are at fault as well and they also need to mentioned in the near future. I know this sound similar to my previous point, but I know you get the idea😁

    I want to know what they mean by yg covered up the past scandal? cause I remember TOP did went in front of the judge and got prosecuted. BOM scandal wasn't big of deal. GD minimal weed isn't going to make go in front of the judge. So what covered up they talking about?
