YG receives backlash for Supearls contract terminations


Article: [Exclusive] YG Yang Hyun Suk "There is no more Supearls" Contract termination confirmed

Source: OSEN via Nate

1. [+558, -111] SM was criticized for not taking in any trainee in season one but now I see that it was the better choice. Out of all the agencies in Korea, these three are the most overflowing with trainees and the market is already oversaturated with new rookie debuts. The real criticism should've been directed at the companies that did take in trainees when they really didn't need to.
At least when the show was over, the contestants that weren't chosen got to join another agency while the spotlight was still on them. How unfair is it that YG took Supearls when they were the most popular with the public, hid them away, and then canceled their contracts now? What do they expect them to do?
If K-Pop Star expects longevity, the three companies need to give freedom to the contestants to choose as they please. These auditions only look for pearls or the cream of the crop when they should be looking for those talents in their individual company auditions, NOT on an audition show. Their greed is what has led to this situation


2. [+662, -221] How irresponsible and selfish of them, shouldn't have even contracted the girls in the first place

3. [+618, -207] Looks like now that Lee Hi is doing well, he doesn't give a crap about the others and is just cutting them off

4. [+149, -23] DIdn't we all expect this? Lee Hi succeeded as a solo, Park Ji Min's with JYP, and Lee Michelle already has rumors of discord. What can the two do? No choice but to disband.

5. [+138, -21] From now on, YG better not dare to call themselves a family. People are always saying SM's the best, or how JYP only considers himself the best, but there has not been one person in SM that they threw away themselves other than the kids that walked out with their own two feet. They always made sure to release an album for Trax no matter how poorly they did. YG should've been like K-Pop Star and chose no one if they weren't confident enough to do their best for them. Or at least be like JYP and put out an album no matter whether the album fails or succeeds. Do they think this is some kind of joke that they can play with the future of children? They are basically throwing away a piece of gum that they chewed up.

1. [+347, -48] He shouldn't have taken them in the first place if this is what he was going to do. He should've let them go as soon as possible the longer he delayed their debut. I hope another company picks them up fast.

2. [+382, -93] Contract termination? More like kicking them to the curb. He acts as if he's doing them such a big favor by letting them go without any clauses, but does he think we're idiots???

3. [+296, -91] Better than keeping them under a slave contract without any hope, I suppose

4. [+68, -18] Terminating their contracts isn't the issue here. Shouldn't YG be compensating the girls for tying them down and not debuting them? Had it not been for YG, they could've already debuted with another company now. Season one of the show is already long over and the public is about to forget them so what does he expect them to do by just throwing them out like this? So unbelievably irresponsible

Copy paste from my orginal comment:

"Not only so, but YG Entertainment is currently busy with their upcoming girl group..."

The girl group that the company brags about being so naturally pretty? Ah, once again K pop chooses looks over talent. And people kept saying shit like "Oh noez, looks don't matter in YG. All they care about is talent blah blah blah..." I've been calling bullshit for years. Looks matter in all the companies, including YG. Why else would CL and Minji wear pounds of make up or Bom get such extensive surgery?

bob_dabuilda 18th-Feb-2013 10:26 pm (UTC)
Another thing, this shit happens in companies all the time. SM and JYP have pulled some shit like this before, but didn't attract attention since nobody knew who the trainees were.
nightfrost75 18th-Feb-2013 10:22 pm (UTC)
Plot twist: JYPE Signs them and reunites Supearls.

I wish.

OT but I'm ready for Park Shi Hoo's post and the netizens comments (HUH...........), that I def won't publish on Omona, bye.

so fucking disappointed I was rooting for you idiot, disgusting etc.
missnothings 18th-Feb-2013 10:26 pm (UTC)
omg i just read that and I don't know what to think. at all. I don't want to victim blame like all the netizens are (SMFH), but then I love him, and I don't want to believe it. D:

Perhaps OP should link to the previous Supearls Article since I was confused when I couldn't find any information in the post?

Anyways, that's a damn shame, I wonder if maybe the girls themselves wanted out
asnindie 18th-Feb-2013 10:44 pm (UTC)
The worst part is how easy it's for Yg to terminate the contract yet the idol could never get out of the contract. But then protecting the worker would mean the end of the World apparently.
ashiva 18th-Feb-2013 10:49 pm (UTC)
They had a trainee contract, I suspect that those are probably relatively easy for both parties to end (At least you can always stop coming into training sessions and that way get company to end your contract).
bunica1990 18th-Feb-2013 10:46 pm (UTC)
Idk why he even signed the girls if he doesn't have time to manage them. They could have debuted in another company by now and he probably messed up their chances.

They might have some natural talent but that doesn't make you a star. Lee hi is a prime example of why they still need training. I'm not sure if I buy yg's excuses though. They shouldn't sign so many when they can't even handle their current roster.
45s 19th-Feb-2013 12:16 am (UTC)
Lbr, he can't handle anyone other than big bang. I legit think psy and his personal crew handled his promotion abroad bc it was organized and smooth as hell.
chanqsun 18th-Feb-2013 11:02 pm (UTC)
man..im not even shocked. i knew it sounded to good to be true to have a young half black girl debut in korea...
and 15& just were not successful...
and well lee hi...that name speaks for itself.
aaalove 18th-Feb-2013 11:02 pm (UTC)
Wait so the girl that was in GD's song without you was from Su Pearls no? Damn I liked her voice.
bunica1990 18th-Feb-2013 11:04 pm (UTC)
I think she was from the SNSD-esque group YG is preparing for debut.
ashiva 18th-Feb-2013 11:10 pm (UTC)
I really hope YG doesn't participate into next year's kpop star as they have already too many artists and trainees for them to handle. Also if they sign someone up from this year's kpop star they better be ready to really debut that person(s) (in my opinion only one they should sign up as a trainee is that little dancer girl who didn't make it into top10 'cause there is no hurry for her debut).
warriorholmes 18th-Feb-2013 11:29 pm (UTC)
noooo. :c i was extremely excited for michelle.
flumes 18th-Feb-2013 11:29 pm (UTC)
good for them tbh cos he's terrible and they should be happy elsewhere
illustratedd 18th-Feb-2013 11:31 pm (UTC)
YG, you stupid idiot
karmin90 18th-Feb-2013 11:38 pm (UTC)
I guess it's safe to say that Lee Seunghoon isn't with YG any more either, huh? SIGH

Shouldn't YG be compensating the girls for tying them down and not debuting them? Had it not been for YG, they could've already debuted with another company now.

lmao no? trainees get shafted and kicked out of companies all the damn time its nothing new.

honestly this is good for the girls bc they probably would've never made it with the way YG Ent run their things and i don't think they would've been a hit, nothing like 2NE1 or BB at least. Even if YG hadn't signed them no one knows for sure that all 4 would've gotten offers from other companies and even if they had would they ever really make it if it wasnt one of the big 3?

i dont blame YG for taking them in, bc he thought they were talented and wanted to do something with them but plans changed and maybe he realized he took on more than he could handle or there were disagreements, i doubt he only signed with plans to do nothing since they did waste money on them. i dont think its a big deal bc it happens everywhere and i think its for the better for their sake and the company's too.
tempestdance 19th-Feb-2013 12:34 am (UTC)
see, you know that YG is shit with management because he's wasted two months of 2013 so far with no new acts. and now he supposedly has Lee Hi, GD, and Taeyang all in the same month?

GD has a tour at the end of March and there's not even a sign that there's a new album to be released - nor will he have any time to promote it. Ugh. I'm actually afraid that YG is gonna pull 2NE1 with GD and send him off on a tour with no new album, and GD will sell well because it's GD, and YG is gonna rake in the cash thinking he's a great producer. What a douche.
onlylexy 19th-Feb-2013 12:56 am (UTC)
I Don't see how Lee Hi is so popular...she's not interesting at all -not even vocally.

YG is dropping ppl like flies.
umbrella_smile 19th-Feb-2013 01:25 am (UTC)
To me it seems like he used all of this to hype up Lee Hi, not caring about what would happen to the other girls.

Also gonna copy paste my tweet

""Conflicts between Lee Michelle & YG Entertainment?" YG was probably being his asshole self and she bit back and he couldn't take it"
deeinanutshell 19th-Feb-2013 02:04 am (UTC)
Hmm. Spring cleaning at YG ent?
Anyway not surprised. There has been rumours of dis-accord with the new girl group (whether it's with themselves or YG or both, idk). I was just hoping it wasn't true. On the other hand, this kind of thing happens all the time with project groups and trainees. So yeah.
