Black Pink to stick to exclusive 'Inkigayo' promos


Article: [Exclusive] Why Black Pink only performs on SBS 'Inkigayo'

Source: Segye Ilbo via Nate

Article talks about how it's Yang Hyun Suk's decision and how no on even in YG knows why Yang Hyun Suk made the decision to only put Black Pink exclusively on 'Inkigayo'. The decision will remain for the foreseeable future.

1. [+624, -77] Because they have a deal with 'Inkigayo'

2. [+574, -84] To manipulate the trophy~

3. [+532, -83] They're not even that good, I don't know why they're being promoted so hard

4. [+49, -8] This is why I hate YG... This is what you call a "tryhard" attitude. A rookie should act like a rookie and promote their song as much as they can but Yang Hyun Suk thinks he's too good for them, too higher class. That only ruins relations with other broadcast channels too.

5. [+38, -6] Because they can't win on any other show other than 'Inkigayo'

6. [+38, -4] As if this is any "tactic" ㅋㅋㅋㅋ If YG had any clue what a promo tactic was, they wouldn't have promised fans that they'd release albums and then screw their fans over for over a year now.

7. [+37, -4] Does YG not have a good relationship with KBS and MBC...?

8. [+36, -5] The cockiness is through the roof... ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+32, -1] Not like it's Black Pink to blame when it's a decision made by Yang Hyun Suk... even their fans want to see them on TV more. What is YG doing;;

10. [+22, -4] So Black Pink is #1 on Melon but why are their text votes only 2% on 'M! Countdown'?!!!!!!!?? Where'd all the Black Pink fans go??????? Do you only listen to their music and not bother voting for them??? Are all you fans ajusshies in your fifties???

11. [+14, -2] Isn't it embarrassing to be known as the singer who can only win on one music show?

12. [+14, -2] I'm pretty sure everyone knows the actual reason why

Oh My Girl's JinE revealed to be suffering from anorexia, to halt promos for treatment


Article: Oh My Girl reps, "JinE to halt promos due to signs of anorexia... we will support her treatment"

Source: OSEN via Nate

1. [+563, -15] Please stop starving girl groups. They look better when they're appropriately thin with proper management of their diets and a healthy strength to them.

2. [+465, -23] With how saturated the idol market is, I can't imagine the amount of pressure agencies must put on these idols. It's pathetic to see how far some of them will go with exposing skin and dressing minors in revealing outfits while starving them.

3. [+444, -14] Just how severely did they force her to diet that it's reached this point tsk tsk tsk

4. [+67. -0] Don't blame the agency for starving her, blame the public. People will make a huge fuss over the slightest weight gain, it's funny how the best replies blame it on the agencies ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+34, -0] Did anyone see the food diary of member Seunghee who's also in this group? I was horrified to read that she only licked the outside of a popsicle

6. [+26, -0] ㅋㅋ Don't act all worried when you guys are the ones who yell at idols for getting fat

7. [+16, -0] Agencies have to manage their diets as strictly as possible considering these idols are their financial investments that need to satisfy the public's expectations. Just look at past comments... people will call anyone over 40 kg a pig and idols who look a bit swollen in pictures will immediately have journalists jump to conclusions like 'is something wrong with her?' in the article titles.

8. [+14, -2] Of course agencies are starving these kids when they force them into fitting lolita style outfits that are too small for them.

9. [+12, -2] People will say stop starving idols but they're also the ones calling them fat when they gain a bit of weight in their thighs and yell at them for not managing themselves

10. [+9, -1] I feel so bad for her... her agency's at fault too but imagine how much stress she herself was under that it's reached the point of anorexia ㅠㅠ

1. [+9,369, -204] I don't think it's the agency to blame but society since her job is an idol

2. [+5,171, -275] Don't force diets on idols

3. [+4,321, -94] I remember 'Vitamin' said Binnie was in poor health too. It's good that Oh My Girl is promoting a lot but please take a hiatus for the sake of your health ㅠㅠ

4. [+4,585, -628] Just how much pressure did her agency put her under to diet that she's anorexic now

5. [+2,782, -87] JinE, get better soon ㅠㅠㅠ

6. [+650, -17] Ah... anorexia... I feel so bad... but is this the reality of our idols... what's so wrong with being a little chubby

7. [+545, -13] Reminds me of that video of Seolhyun getting yelled at for weighing over 50 kg ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ so hard being a female star

8. [+574, -37] Why do you think her agency is so hard on her for dieting ㅋㅋ because of all you stupid fans who latch onto idols like piranhas whenever they gain a bit of weight

9. [+432, -12] I knew something was wrong when their agency had them put out 3 albums in the span of 4 months. Obviously they don't know how to manage their idols other than overworking them like this... really disappointed in WM!

Hyunseung confesses to his fears since leaving B2ST



Article: 'Hit the Stage' Jang Hyunseung, "I'm scared now that I've left B2ST" confession

Source: Mydaily via Naver

1. [+1,599, -67] You're only scared now?

2. [+1,336, -74] He'd be no where without B2ST..

3. [+1,150, -54] What's up with his hair

4. [+935, -45] Should've been good while you were in the group

5. [+686, -47] That hair, it looks like he escaped the jungle

6. [+222, -13] The remaining members were probably more scared than you because they had more to lose. But they haven't mentioned you once and have promoted their album and completed their concert without any media play so you need to stop mentioning the team too and go down your own path.

7. [+226, -20] Your typical comment to get sympathy on TV

8. [+210, -18] He honestly has no potential on his own without his team...

9. [+188, -17] You brought this upon yourself, what're you scared of...?

10. [+188, -17] Bad visuals, average skills... no chance as a solo

Article: Jang Hyunseung, "I'm honestly scared of how much hate I'll get if I do poorly"

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+337, -6] Didn't he get hate before this too? He talks as if he's never gotten hate before. If he's so cared of getting hate, he should've fixed his attitude in the first place.

2. [+253, -7] As passionate as he is, he half a$$ed everything in B2ST while working so hard on Troublemaker and his solo ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ at least he left the group cleanly and fairly and is sticking to dancing

3. [+222, -13] For someone who's so scared of hate, why would he act the way he did then?

4. [+30, -1] Don't cosplay as the victim here ㅋㅋ you're not getting hate for no reason ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+20, -2] He still doesn't seem to have a clue as to why he's getting hate

6. [+14, -0] Look at his hair ㅋㅋㅋ looks like he tried to copy those Acne models but it doesn't match him at all. Go get a new look.

7. [+14, -1] Does he not realize how much harm he brought to the group? He's getting hate because he deserves it.

8. [+13, -2] I know that commenting this will be considered hate and that I should restrict myself... but his face is so unlikable. It's hard to like him based off of his actions alone but the way he looks is so...... I always thought he looked weird since B2ST's debut but now he looks like some has-been Japanese idol from the 90s and it's so weird how he's still so confident looking like that ㅜㅜ

Ex-Moogadang rapper Prhyme talks about his negative experience under YG


Article: 'Moogadang' rapper Prhyme "YG had an adverse effect on my promos ever since my contract with them ended"

Source: Sports Today via Nate

He initially commented on Yoo Byung Jae's post, "I'd be where you are by now if I had served Hyun Suk hyung drinks every single night. But I was sick of that dark place and finally ran out after 6 years."

He then deleted the comment and wrote a separate post on his Facebook explaining, "I didn't delete the comment because I was scared of hate or because it wasn't true. The fact that I had to serve drinks for years on end can be testified by all of the people who worked at the club. I knew at the start of Moogadang that Moogadang was just a group for YG to kill time before Big Bang's debut and to form a foundation for Eunjoo's solo as well as Baekkyung's production work but I was grateful for anything that I was given. But after signing the contract (for Moogadang), it wasn't schedules that I had to attend to but nights out serving drinks. It got to the point where it affected my health. Ever since my contract with YG ended, it adversely affected my promotions. I eventually gave up any hope I had of a TV career and started over from the bottom of the pit, sweating on the field and promising anyone who would listen to me that I would work hard."

1. [+465, -26] Yang Hyun Suk... he has more of a darker side than you'd think...

2. [+425, -15] Oh, this is quite a dangerous statement from him ㅋㅋㅋ but I can imagine how frustrated it must've been for him, having to waste away years just serving drinks without earning anything for your career... I wouldn't even be able to sleep if I suffered that.

3. [+376, -19] We all know that the industry is quite the dirty place

4. [+95, -1] I remember when I was 20 years old, I went to the NB nightclub for the first time and saw Prhyme and he turned me away with a glass of water saying I should focus on my studies now and that I'd have tons of time later to come to clubs like this. He left such a positive impression on me but even then I knew that he was going through hard times ㅜㅜ I personally liked Moogadang songs

5. [+66, -1] The singers in the company who make money probably got respect just sitting there while singers like him had to waste years being invited to serve drinks at company parties and forced to rile up the atmosphere for everyone. What a waste of time for him.

6. [+63, -3] Seeing the way YG is now, I can tell what they're like on the inside. Even now, they throw out groups that don't make them any money anymore.

7. [+52, -2] I have a hyung who was an accountant for a big entertainment agency (not YG) and he said agencies do indeed have separate singers that they keep around just to serve drinks to higher officials. This agency in particular even had their girl groups who debuted a while ago serve drinks. That's probably what this guy was relegated to in his role at the company.

8. [+41, -2] I went to one of Prhyme's events a week ago and he seemed like a good person. He worked super hard, greeted everyone and told them good job at the end... he really does live life working hard ㅜ

9. [+24, -25] It's hard to just believe him though... I'd believe it if a majority of the singers under that company had something negative to say but Big Bang, Se7en, Wheesung have never said anything bad about Yang Hyun Suk. I just think he had no talent or popularity to sustain himself after leaving YG.
- Well Big Bang is currently under the company, Se7en has committed a crime so he's in no position to be talking crap about anything, Wheesung is under M-Boat, a subsidiary of YG, and I don't think he's suffered any injustice from YG anyway ㅋㅋㅋ I think you should put yourself in this guy's shoes and think about wasting years being called to company events every night to serve drinks only to come out of it with nothing but a failed contract ㅋㅋㅋ Let's see how you feel then

10. [+21, -4] This is why I have such a hard time liking YG. It's always YG's artists who are always getting into scandals involved with drinking and nightclubs...
