With Suzy as JYP's sole breadwinner, is JYP at risk of losing their 'Big 3' title? - Basically a Suz

This article is an editorial talking about how Suzy is basically putting food on the table for JYP Entertainment with her popularity lately. The writer mentions that Park Jin Young's movie didn't do so well and 2PM is still recovering from their scandal with Nichkhun on top of miss A not living up to expectations with their recent comeback. 

Meanwhile, Suzy is still highly popular and much loved by the public, making headlines everywhere she goes and everything she does, etc, basically making her the sole breadwinner for the entire company.

1. [+434, -66] Well, let's start with the beginning of the year where those JJ Project guys completely screwed up their drama as well as their album, and then Jang Wooyoung, who also failed with his solo album, and then Park Jin Young, who also failed with his movie, and then miss A, who is also failing to garner any type of response with their comeback. It's looking dark for JYP this year. 

2. [+408, -40] Hul... broadcast halls really said that all they want from JYP is Suzy... How did JYP drop this low...

3. [+406, -51] Park Jin Young needs to focus more these days... All of the songs he's been making for JYP are really weird... They're not even fun or have any type of feel...

4. [+88, -14] If JYP didn't send the Wonder Girls to America and didn't kick Jay Park out of 2PM, then JYP would be at the head of everything right now...

5. [+77, -17] 2PM became nobodies the minute they became 6PM and 2AM has no future left to their career even if they're not a part of JYP anymore. miss A hit it too big right from the start that they're not able to live up to that anymore.. and the Wonder Girls have been pushed back by a lot of the other girl groups. Compared to SM and YG, JYP hasn't been advancing, but rather declining... So they are no longer a part of the 'Big 3'.

Lee Seung-gi and Suzy(?) cast in fantasy sageuk

Well you know I’m a happy camper if puppy’s back in dramaland. Lee Seung-gi (The King 2 Hearts) and Suzy (Big) have been cast in a new drama, a fantasy sageuk called Gu Family Book. That’s a rough estimate on the title, since we have no hanja to go on yet, but the Gu refers to gumiho, a mythical nine-tailed fox, almost always in mythology a woman. But this time, Seung-gi will be playing a half-gumiho / half-human. Seung-gi, isn’t going from gumiho’s boyfriend to gumiho-boy kinda retreading old ground?

It’s at least a sageuk, which means it’ll be completely different from the modern rom-comMy Girlfriend Is a Gumiho. I’ll just think of him as Miho and Dae-woong’s baby. The drama will be helmed by PD Shin Woo-chul, of Secret Garden, A Gentleman’s Dignity and writer Kang Eun-kyung of Baker King, Man of Honor, Dalja’s Spring.

Suzy is still “considering the role favorably.” There’s not much information on her character yet, just that she’s up for the heroine. Seung-gi has reportedly been attached to the project from the start, and has confirmed the lead role. All we know is that he’ll be playing a half-man-half-beast, in his first historical drama to date. I… cannot picture him with a mane of glory. Does not compute. In danger of fire hazard. You know I love the boy, but sometimes hair is his enemy. Can he be a half-gumiho who hides his true identity while living as a nobleman? ‘Cause pretty topknot with hat and hanbok sounds right up his alley.

I think it’s an adorable pairing, and while Suzy does leave some emoting to be desired, she’s better with every role, and I honestly just like her in everything. I dunno… she’s just plain likable. It probably helps that she’s played some funny characters, because comedy is her stronger suit. I hope there’s some funny to be had in this new show, because that’s my favorite mode for both these actors.

The series is aiming for an early 2013 broadcast, and is currently in talks with MBC for a time slot.

Hopefully I got it right this time. 4th time's the charm? I don't feel confident though.
If not I'm giving up.
Suzy and Kim Soo Hyun don't have a tag?

WG still do great on charts, I'm sure 2PM will do well too (tho I find them boring). But their new debuts have been lack luster, and Miss A comeback just didn't work out well for JYP, let's not forget with Suzy in the group.

But doesn't JYP make serious bank from all the Khun and Taec endorsements? I said it before and will say it again, JYP give us a Khun and Suzy unit like Troublemaker. It'll blow up the charts.

I thought Wooyoung's album did pretty well? Or was it not good enough compared to 2PM's sales?

In any case I wouldn't mind if the big 3 got dethroned to make way for smaller companies with better groups.
asnindie 29th-Oct-2012 04:57 am (UTC)
The physical did decently, but the single flopped on digital, where JYP is usually the strongest.
chomper_go_rawr 29th-Oct-2012 05:02 am (UTC)
If Miss A got a variety show that would be nice... maybe it would help build more hype for their singles...
lysblack 29th-Oct-2012 02:46 pm (UTC)
srsly idk why jype/aqe didn't get them one yet!
rainbwoo 29th-Oct-2012 05:02 am (UTC)
i personally love miss A's comeback but it seems like the general public doesn't like it as much? 2PM needs to come back soon, they will help a lot hopefully.

goddess Suzy in a new drama ;A; wish her all the best. i actually like her acting in Dream High and Architecture 101 (haven't watched Big, and doesn't plan too). but i hope she will do well in the new drama!

photoshoot with kim soohyun is so qt ;___; ♥

Personally not fond of JYP as a producer, though I like some of his groups.

OP your videos are messed up :(
erbalurbal 29th-Oct-2012 05:10 am (UTC)
I'm pretty sure 2pm bring in more money than suzy unless they get absolutely nothing from cf deals, touring, and sales in Japan.
lysblack 29th-Oct-2012 02:46 pm (UTC)
it depends really. as a group they are, but as individuals i believe that not anymore, taec and pre-scandal khun did earn more than her in the beginning opf teh year, but now i'm not so sure, she scored, i believe, 12 solo cfs, all that plus teh drama and movie money and variety appearances.

the only female idol who is making more money than suzy in korea right now is yoona.
21banged 29th-Oct-2012 05:11 am (UTC)
lol there are a few random vids in there OP.

It's sad that things aren't going so well for JYP. I didn't really like 15&'s (is that their name?) debut song, but I was loving JJ Project's mini - it was something I oculd jam to.

tbh, I do think JYP shipping the WG off to America fucked their careers over, but they still chart well so it's not that big an issue. However, with the way things are looking, I think Cube might end up dethroning JYP as one of the Big Three, because they are just getting bigger and bigger successes with each new release.

But that's just my take on things.
pikapika217 29th-Oct-2012 05:12 am (UTC)
Miss A's mini is FLAWLESS except for the lead track

I do wish, however, that he'd kep WG in S. Korea a little longer to build their brand up more. Both of their recent releases were really nice!
jongiu 29th-Oct-2012 05:26 am (UTC)
i never knew JYP was even in a movie, no wonder it flopped.
I actually love Miss A's comeback, I thought it was pretty good tbh.

its been very obvious that suzy would become the sole breadwinner, with all the shit that has been happening.

epona 29th-Oct-2012 05:40 am (UTC)
I think Cube should take their place in the Big 3. 4minute isn't huge, but Hyuna is, and Beast are more popular than 2PM rn. Not to mention G.Na and A Pink is still on the rise with Eunji everywhere.
soramai 29th-Oct-2012 10:14 am (UTC)
I thought Apink were not under Cube.
odd_fish_stick 29th-Oct-2012 06:11 am (UTC)
lol suzy is not their sole breadwinner. jyp is not going bankrupt. WG is bringing in money from their current tour, comeback and multiple festival appearances. Sohee alone made 600k this year, not counting her new CF deal with reebok, which yeah isn't a lot compared to other visuals but it's a far cry from a destitute picture. JJ and 15& may bring some losses but I still don't see it as a mistake, they are just rookies. JYP himself had his comeback too which did very well, not to mention he's the #1 songwriter this year when it comes to earned royalties. JYPs movie was not financed by JYPE so again, no losses. Is anyone really doubting 2pm will come back? they are not finished in any way lol. Their Japan single is already being hyped and khun's return has been planned.

I love my JYP family, but the fact that my losing interest on kpop starting this year is reflected on their huge absence in kpop relevancy.. I need my 2PM back, jeez.
shocko_o 29th-Oct-2012 06:30 am (UTC)
lol those netizen comments- some true, mostly opinions
i didn't think suzy would make it so big. she's bright and quirky, but in the beginning not as comfortable as others onscreen, and I thought she was more reserved on Invincible Youth at first. those first pics of her are adorable!

on the other hand, I'd love to see more of 2am, whether they are huge successes or not.
raviolikenshin 29th-Oct-2012 06:32 am (UTC)
15&: not even relevant enough to make the article talking about jyp failures.

it's such a shame dream high 2 sucked. i loved dream high, so so so so much. glad to see ksh and suzy reunited in those pics.

i would have been into miss a's comeback if it wasn't so...cutesy. i hated how they said shincha? and chonmal? all cutesy in between their declarations of independence while bouncing around. like please...just be badass. i only want you to be badass.
chibi_rei 29th-Oct-2012 07:28 am (UTC)
Love 15&, but without a physical release I don't think they're relevant enough. Not that physical sales amount to a lot these days, but still.
cagallisakura 29th-Oct-2012 06:43 am (UTC)

all i care about is more of these moments
sadistic_dance 29th-Oct-2012 06:08 pm (UTC)
The guy following the ball so accurately in the second gif is killing me.
iftheshoefits88 29th-Oct-2012 07:01 am (UTC)
at least she fell properly like the taught them in iy2 and didnt bang her head. hahaha
b1gay4 29th-Oct-2012 07:29 am (UTC)
suzy is making alot of money for JYP right now who i think is wasting alot of it on debuting artists randomly and imo has always tried to make his place among YG and SM, only 1 tier above cube
cottonowl 29th-Oct-2012 07:37 am (UTC)
... what Nichkhun scandal? Did I miss something?
askbask 29th-Oct-2012 08:02 am (UTC)
The k-pop star girls are doing well, tho.
ginevragirl 29th-Oct-2012 04:14 pm (UTC)
Yes. I think they will do very well for JYPE in the future, they just need a little more time to be known. :)
windygables 29th-Oct-2012 08:05 am (UTC)
Excuse U Netizen. 2AM may not be as in the spotlight as when Jo Kwon was everywhere but they haven't disappeared.
deerlike 29th-Oct-2012 10:37 am (UTC)
mte :( 2AM always do well in terms of sales and whatnot whenever they promote a song. tbh, as a ballad group, they probably have the more longevity than other jyp groups.
anconeous 29th-Oct-2012 08:40 am (UTC)
I hope Suzy's not paired up with Lee Seunggi in that sageuk. If ever Suzy's cast, I hope she's the second lead girl at least.

2PM and 2AM do well, actually. It's just that neither have promoted for a while.
ginevragirl 29th-Oct-2012 04:15 pm (UTC)
From what I've heard, she's the lead of the drama. Lol.
d_e_l_u_g_e 29th-Oct-2012 08:52 am (UTC)
Videos down :(
uniqlos 29th-Oct-2012 10:05 am (UTC)
suzy is in demand right now because miss a just had a comeback. when 2pm come back they'll be in variety shows too. don't forget their group endorsements (after all, CFs are a big indicator of relevance in korea, a fact that people either don't know or wilfully ignore when they preach their 2pm IS DOOMED agenda) they have big ones with lotte, korea tourism and coke and smaller ones with coway and mr. pizza) idk about khun's solo cfs but in the group ones the companies just edit him out. if it was really dire, they'd drop the group like t-ara. they're also doing better than expected in japan. 2pm didn't fall apart in 2010 like everyone hoped and they won't fall apart now so you might as well stop hoping.

i reallly like netizenbuzz but honestly i could do with the ifan comments. idiot koreaboos who think if they agree with evety piece of netizen bs then netizens will accept them as one of their own.
soramai 29th-Oct-2012 10:19 am (UTC)
ia with the comments section from netizenbuzz.
tryxkittie 29th-Oct-2012 12:56 pm (UTC)
idgi...why do ppl love Suzy? Cuz of Dream High?

Also what happened to the Wonder Girls?
gathyou 29th-Oct-2012 01:33 pm (UTC)
I think the article is refering to : Sunmi leaving, Wonder Girs disappearing in the States and losing popularity in Korea. But I don't fully agree ; maybe they've lost some popularity, but they still have a strong base. And it took them a lot of time to be noticed in the States as well, but they're starting to have some projects going on. It's like they're going slowly to build something.
gathyou 29th-Oct-2012 01:25 pm (UTC)
I do agree that it hasn't been a good year for JYP, but nothing terrible here. I'm sure everyone forgot about Nickhun and 2PM comeback will be huge, especially after so many time. And 2AM will have one other beautiful ballad that Korea is gonna love, lol. They have potential to still be huge.
Wonder Girls might have lost popularity, but they still have a strong base. They won't grow any more, but I think they'll stay popular enough if they keep with quality released. And Sohee's still bringing money to JYP.

Did anyone listened to Suzy's videos ? Her voice isn't strong enough to cover Adele, but it was still lovely to hear, and she reached her notes pretty well.
lysblack 29th-Oct-2012 02:32 pm (UTC)
but suzy actually did right with her song, a cover, she sang the song on her tone and vocie capacities and limitations, instead of trying to sing like adele like many people try to do.
