  5. Despite the unfair profit distribution, there are hundreds of trainees that audition for this company every year.The proportion of income distribution between artists and their agency is always a hot topic on the social forums. The list below indicates the profit allocation ratio of 5 big Kpop entertainment companies in the present. You will immediately realize which company is accused of misappropriation and blood-sucking its artists.YG (BigBang, Winner, Black Pink, iKon,…)Contract years: 7 yearsPhysical sales: Agency(50%), Artist (50%)Physical sales renewed: : Agency(30%), Artist (70%)Events: Agency(40%), Artist (60%)Overseas promotions: Agency(50%), Artist (50%)* Dividing income even in circumstance of not reaching the break-over point.YG entertainment is considered the most gracious agency of Kpop. Besides the continuously delayed comeback, YG always gives the best working condition for their artists, which is evident as profit almost distributes in the proportion 50:50. Artists get the higher percentage than their agency in the revenue from event activities and physical sales. Moreover, YG artists have an enjoyable and high individual freedom lifeBig Hit (BTS)Contract years: 7 yearsPhysical sales: Agency(50%), Artist (50%)Physical sales renewed: : Agency(30%), Artist (70%)Events: Agency(50%), Artist (50%)Overseas promotions: Agency(30%), Artist (70%)* Dividing income even in circumstance of not reaching the break-over point.Apart from YG, Big Hit can also be considered as an impartial company referring to the money issue. The enormous revenue Big Hit earns from BTS is obviously demonstrated by the boy group. All of the members receive the equivalent income to their effort. BTS have a lot of overseas promotional activities; therefore, the proportion 30:70 is certainly profitable for each member.JYP (Got7, TWICE, Suzy,…)Contract years: 7 yearsPhysical sales: Agency(50%), Artist (50%)Physical sales renewed: Agency(30%), Artist (70%)Events: Agency(60%), Artist (40%)Overseas promotions: Agency(50%), Artist (50%)* Dividing income even in circumstance of not reaching the break-over point.Though not being a major player compared to SM or YG, JYP always distributes their income equally. JYP artists receive a half of total profit for almost every activity.FNC (CNBlue, AOA, FT Island,…)Contract years: 7 yearsPhysical sales: Agency(60%), Artist (40%)Physical sales renewed: : Agency(60%), Artist (50%)Events: Agency(60%), Artist (40%)Overseas promotions: Agency(50%), Artist (50%)* No income division in circumstance of not reaching the break-over point.Apart from overseas promotions, almost other activities of FNC are divided in the proportion 60:40. Nevertheless, if artists do not reach the break-over point, income will not divide as agreement. This is one of the contract terms that makes FNC artists distressed. AOA confessed that they hadn’t been receiving any settlement for 3 years after their debut as their income didn’t reach the FNC’s break-over point.SM (EXO, Red Velvet, SNSD, Super Junior, SHINee, NCT,….)Contract years: 7 yearsPhysical sales: Agency(95%), Artist (5%)Physical sales renewed: Agency(90%), Artist (10%)Events: Agency(60%), Artist (40%)Overseas promotions: Agency(30%), Artist (70%)* Dividing income even in circumstance of not reaching the break-over point.Presently, SM still remains in their position as the most unfair profit allocation in the entertainment industry, while physical sales are divided in the proportion 95:5. Other activities are also distributed in the ratio 70:30. It is clear that their idols don’t receive their deserving salary to their labor effort. As the evidence, in the history of SM, many idols stood up for their justice such as DBSK, Kris, Luhan, and Tao.Despite being the biggest entertainment company in the Kpop industry, SM entertainment company is always condemned for their rigid profit distribution that has made their idols decide to file a lawsuit against their own agency. However, nobody can deny the fact that SM idols are nearly always famous. This is the reason why this company has hundreds of trainee participate auditions, regardless of its notoriety.

[+17, -6] Even now, he's only making money thanks to Big Bang ㅋㅋ YG's successor???? Can't even manage himself. All he did on variety shows was show off his home and his Japanese ramen restaurant while cosplaying as a CEO... who would let you be a successor just for that? ㅠㅠ10.

You have to admit JYP's image as an idol agency has gone down a lot.7. [+26, -33] Twice had a lot to do with it ㅋㅋㅋand YG's dropping now that Big Bang's gone8.

  9. (pic not included)1. SMIf the company was a bank, the singers would be the bank cards and the fans would be the ATMs. They are a company that's crazy for money. They don't do their work but sell their expensive goods like crazy.They are also the worst company when it comes to discriminating between male and female idols.If you combine their female idols' choreography videos, they don't even add up to 5.F(x)'s last comeback was Twice's debut date2. YGA bug who doesn't think about money but resultsThey are results-oriented and keep their artists in a jewelry boxThis time, YG was touched from Black Pink's good results so he was 2x more active on his InstagramFans have severe trust issues about whether or not their bias will be able to come back within the yearLee Hi's last comeback was 2 years agoThe CEO now wants to break into the Japanese market and is making his artists promote consistently there3. CUBETheir nickname is fail-CubeThey are not a company who's known for doing comebacks, instead they just accumulate more and more artists.They also want to raise the fans' independent mind so in order to find fangirl material, they need to look for it themselvesThey laid off the security guards who had a good relationship with the fansThey were short on the choreographers so kept using standing mics insteadBUT nowadays, they are hard at work and take care of the comebacks well.4.

This time, with the plagiarism company, their feedback was also meh.Instead, their singers receive all the hateThe top 6 is ambiguous so here's a bonus6. YMC/SwingNo matter how much I think about it, I won't understand why they are prohibiting fancamsThey are the 2nd company after SM who's crazy about moneyI don't know if they think that they are popular overseas, but they sent their singers on a tour overseas after not even 1 year and their tour ended up with lots of empty seats.

  14. YG Entertainment‘s Yang Hyun Suk uploaded a screenshot of an article that covered Sechs Kies‘ Eun Ji Won being nice to BLACKPINK‘s Jisoo on a recent episode of Unexpected Q, but his post ended up gaining attention for an entirely different reason, thanks to CL. The article reads, “Unexpected Q’s Eun Ji won is a ‘tsundere’ oppa – lets BLACKPINK’s Jisoo have the answers.” Yang Hyun Suk wrote, “This is how Eun Ji Won usually is. I like people who are the same people inside as they are on the outside.” He concludes the post with the notion, “We should get to recording soon…” The posting blew up when former 2NE1‘s CL dropped by the comments section and left “Papa YG” a comment. “What about me, boss? #Please_Return_My_Texts” — CL Fans are convinced Yang Hyun Suk isn’t doing his best to support CL, so have proceeded to request some reaction to what CL said. The hashtag #weneedCL is dominating the comments section of Yang Hyun Suk’s latest posting. “Yg entertainment is nothing without 2NE1. Please give CL the support that she deserves. Don’t forget 2NE1 and CL brought YG Entertainment to become famous until now.” “I wish them to stay YG forever but If YG continue to take them for granted… then I really understand and respect whatever decision they make… My love and support for them will never changed. I really cry when I watched CL in a variety show saying that she felt responsible for what happened to 2ne1… that words makes me feel hurt even more” “There’s no YG family no more and Yang Hyun Suk is not CL’s or any artist’s father so stop with this bullsh*t. YG is a success stan, he doesn’t care about his artists, only about money. So don’t make comparisons about real life father and children situations. It’s a company and YG’s a CEO. ITS ALL ABOUT MONEY like Seunghyun said, no family but business.” “CL has been loyal since day one. She didn’t sacrifice her youth just to be detained in YGE DUNGEON. If you won’t release her album, then you better let her go. SHE IS A TALENTED MUSICIAN. SHE DESERVES BETTER. She’s working harder and smarter than most idols out there!!!” The outrage has now spread among other fandoms whose artists are also “detained in YG Entertainment’s dungeon.” “Papa YG, I want to remind you, please pay attention to other YG artists like Lee Hi, CL, Dara, One, and others to release albums. Papa YG, please do not waste their talents. Especially ONE – he has never had a debut stage. Please do not ignore artists. Do not ignore them because you’re too focused on iKON, WINNER, and BLACKPINK.” “Please promote your groups better. If you want your groups to be more well known then you should do something about it. iKON have barely gone on any shows since JANUARY. Just because YG is an elite company doesnt mean they are a good company. Please do something about your poor management, promotion and stylists team.” “Results are what matters to him after all. Look at his latest posts. Full of his bragging posts for BLACKPINK. He can see MONEY on them. He even abandons CL, DARA, ONE, LEE HI & SUHYUN. He completely threw 2NE1 away because he had a better replacement.” There also is a large consensus asking CL to leave YG Entertainment, as she is assumed to have hinted the desire already. “Just leave! we fans will support you forever!” “It’s time to leave YG, my heart aches for you, my queen.” “CL, just leave YG. They don’t deserve your talent.” “Please leave YG! You deserved better. 2NE1 deserved better. YOU ARE A QUEEN! YOU DON’T NEED YG!!! We are always with you.” “What’s the point of being in an established company when they’re just gonna ignore you for decades or centuries? And their excuse they give might be to make “better quality music” or focusing on their groups? YG bye.” Regardless, the fans’ love for CL remains strong. Fans from all over the world are promising to stick by her side no matter if she decides to give YG Entertainment another chance or if she finally flies solo. “Follow your heart that your GZB’s will follow you. We love you.” “If you need to leave YG to be happy and do what you love, Blackjack, and YG stan and your real fans will always be by your side, I will always support you, I want you to be happy my queen!” “Wherever you are I’ll support you because I am your fan so do what’s best for you and whatever makes you happy.”

  16. YG Entertainment has released statements responding to the report that BIGBANG’s G-Dragon was recently discharged from the military hospital. On June 30, it was reported by Osen that G-Dragon was discharged from Yangju Armed Forces Hospital on June 29 and was moved to the Cheorwon army division, where he was positioned after completing his basic training. When asked for confirmation, the military hospital requested that all questions be directed to the Ministry of National Defense. YG Entertainment was also contacted and they initially released a statement that read, “We are currently contacting G-Dragon’s family to confirm the validity of the reports regarding him being discharged from the hospital. As G-Dragon is currently a soldier in the army, we as his agency are unable to know the specific details of his status.” The agency released a follow-up statement after speaking with G-Dragon’s family and said, “We have heard from his family that G-Dragon has indeed been discharged and moved to the Cheorwon army division.” In May, it was confirmed that G-Dragon had received surgery for his ankle. On June 25, Dispatch released a report claiming that he had received preferential treatment at the military hospital while being treated for his ankle. The reports were denied by YG Entertainment, with the Ministry of National Defense also releasing a statement on the issue.

  20. Woo Jinyoung's company is sueing YG

    Hello. This is Happy Face Entertainment. We plan on delivering our official statement regarding news of the lawsuit we filed against YG Entertainment. First, Happy Face Entertainment officially filed asking for compensation of damages back on June 18 against YG Entertainment. The amount we asked for as compensation of damages was 10,000,000 KRW (~ $9,000), and rather than filing the lawsuit solely in order to receive our compensation, we notify that we asked for such an amount in the hopes that the popular culture of South Korea, the birthplace of Hallyu, will be able to break free from large companies' 'Gapjil' (In English: unjustifiable actions of the privileged class against the lower class); and prosper in a healthy environment. As many of you know, Happy Face Entertainment trainee Woo Jin Young appeared on JTBC's 'MIXNINE' and was fortunate enough to receive so much love from the judges and the fans that he was able to remain #1 until the end. According to such results, we as well as 'MIXNINE' viewers and Woo Jin Young fans expected the winning top 9 to debut soon and promote for a duration of 4 months. However, YG Entertainment never mentioned any details regarding plans for the top 9 to make their debut, even back in March which was approximately 2 months after the end of 'MIXNINE'. Despite knowing full well the contestants' desperation toward debut, YGE continued to neglect the group. YG Entertainment failed to contact the labels of the top 9 winners until fans and media outlets began to reproach YGE for neglecting the 'MIXNINE' team. And even then, rather than discussing debut plans as written in the original contract, YG suggested changes to the contract's terms without any consultation from the other labels. This change asked for YGE's control over 'MIXNINE's winning team from the original contract period of 4 months to an extended 3 years. Due to this type of one-sided communication, the other labels began to have differing opinions, and in the end YGE used the explanation that the other labels refused to accept YG's new terms as the reason for the 'MIXNINE' team's debut cancellation. Despite the fact that YG still held a responsibility to carry out the actions written in the former contract in the case that the other labels disagreed with the changed terms, the entire ordeal all the way up to the team's debut cancellation was a result of YGE's continued selfish behavior. As reported, YG Entertainment coined the reason for the debut team's cancellation as, 'It is an impossible thing to fulfill new song preparations, MV filming, choreography practice, solo concerts, and more within a period of 4 months'; however, the preparation period mentioned above remained separate from the winning team's main promoting period in the original contract. In other words, to violate the original contract and to determine conceited contract change suggestions is a clear act of 'Gapjil' (In English: unjustifiable actions of the privileged class against the lower class). They attempted to simplify the debut cancellation as simply a matter of the contestants' labels not coming to agreements; but ultimately, the fault lies within YGE for failure to communicate with the winners' labels and declaring changes to the original contract without any prior consultation. Thus, Happy Face Entertainment believes this lawsuit speaks up on behalf of not only all the contestants from 'MIXNINE' who worked hard with debut in mind, but also to protect the contestant's desperate dreams being crushed, and even to speak up for those who paid to submit votes for the show. From the beginning stages of 'MIXNINE' up until the debuting team's cancellation, YGE subjected various companies to 'Gapjil' by misusing its power in the industry. Then, by cancelling the debut of the winning team, the label went on to betray the viewers who cherished the survival program with its continuous, irresponsible attitude. Happy Face Entertainment direly hopes that no more individuals will be hurt in the music industry due to such 'Gapjil'. Happy Face Entertainment and all of its employees will continue to put in efforts so that we can create a healthy, prosperous, competitive, and caring entertainment culture. Thank you."

  21. YG Entertainment has announced it will be counter-suing Happy Face Entertainment following the cancellation of 'MIXNINE's winning group debut. On June 25, Happy Face Entertainment announced its intention to take legal action against YGE, and it looks like YGE has now decided to do the same. On June 26, YG Entertainment said in an official statement, "This is our official stance on the recent lawsuit brought forth by one agency that participated in 'MIXNINE'." The statement continued, "A few months earlier, the agency heads got together on 6 different occasions to come to a conclusion, and we thought it was over after we announced it to media. However, we did not foresee that one of those labels would attempt to sue us for 10,000,000 KRW (~$9,000)." YGE concluded, "As they've filed an official lawsuit, we've also discussed our side with a lawyer and plan to counter-sue. We'll try to minimize any more understanding through the trial's final judgment. Thank you." https://www.allkpop.com/article/2018/06/yg-entertainment-to-counter-sue-happy-face-entertainment-after-mixnine-debut-cancellation
  22. Article: [Exclusive] Army and YG's statement on G-Dragon's special treatment controversy Source: E-Daily via Naver 1. [+4,850, -955] The fact that he has a private room is special treatment!! What soldier gets his own room?? ㅋㅋㅋ Has any soldier here had his own private room in the army hospital? ㅋㅋ 2. [+2,266, -284] "He was placed in his own room due to a request for privacy and security concerns" so if a normal soldier makes the same request, will he be given his own room too?? And did they really say that soldiers with severe snoring problems are given their own rooms??? My friend had snoring problems and they never gave him his own room??? Please stop with these excuses.. 3. [+1,705, -168] Why does everyone wait until the army to get themselves treated ㅋㅋㅋ Too busy making money outside so they decide the army's the time to rest and go get surgery? ㅋㅋㅋ All on our tax money? ㅋㅋㅋ 4. [+774, -234] His room still has an air conditioner 5. [+332, -47] Obviously they're denying it because people would flip the army upside down if it was confirmed true 6. [+264, -42] Any soldier who has received this type of treatment needs to speak up ㅋㅋㅋ because this is special treatment... I don't care what fans do but the fact that they're trying to defend this does bother me... 7. [+167, -28] Honestly, what hospital room doesn't have an air conditioner nowadays? 8. [+175, -45] Dispatch seems to have a lot pent up against GD because he never confirms their dating rumors - Article: YG "G-Dragon's special treatment hospitalization? NO... he gave up his break for treatment, one soldier per room" Source: MBN TV via Nate 1. [+267, -24] Anyone ever see a normal soldier get his own room? ㅋㅋ If there's any one person who's seen it, come and speak up 2. [+208, -20] So bizarre... how people who had no problem singing and dancing get so sick in the army... Since when did the army become a place of rehab? It's like how all the corrupt CEOs suddenly get sick and need wheelchairs when it's time for police investigations... coincidence or not? 3. [+199, -24] I bet you they'll give him that room until his discharge ㅋㅋㅋ 4. [+23, -6] What has he done so far to even deserve a break that he can "give up" for treatment? 5. [+23, -4] He's going to be spending his entire service getting this treatment 6. [+16, -32] You have to admit it's kind of funny to put GD in a room with 6 other soldiers though... it'll probably be more stressful for the other soldiers. Especially since they'll all have visitors too. 7. [+15, -7] Giving a soldier his own room itself is already special treatment.. 8. [+14, -5] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Do they not think any of us have served? ㅋㅋㅋ Please stop lying - Source: Nate 1. [+1,027, -46] What "privacy" does a soldier need while serving? 2. [+250, -7] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ "severe snoring" can get you your own room? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 3. [+214, -5] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ There are hundreds of thousands of soldiers who are reading this, how many do they think they can fool? 4. [+67, -1] What soldier is special enough to get his own room? 5. [+63, -0] You idiots, the fact that he got his own room is special treatment already. Ugh, I can't believe the army's still like this 6 years after I've finished my service. 6. [+39, -0] "Complying with a request to protect his privacy" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ they're giving him the royalty treatment 7. [+33, -0] I'm an officer... I have never ever heard of a soldier getting his own room in all my service. 8. [+30, -0] Fool... if you're going to serve at all, why not just do your job? Why turn it into this mess? 9. [+30, -2] "ankle instability"? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Thanks to Yoo Ah In, Seo In Guk, and GD, I am learning about all sorts of ailments in the world ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 10. [+28, -0] I'd barely believe you if you told me a high level executive got his own room and yet a normal soldier did?! Don't you need to be in a serious state to even get that? Netizen Buzz
