CEO Yang reported the following during his phone interview with a reporter on the 5th, “Keeping the promise that we made about the ‘WIN’ teams and how one of the two team’s victory depends 100% on viewer votes and solely on the viewers’ votes is the most important thing” and that “I announced during the first production press conference and on the first episode of the show that the winning team will debut immediately after the show is over and that the losing team will either disband or spend many more years training, however I (and YGE) think that a definite disbandment for the losing team is the better way to go once the winning team is separated away.”
CEO Yang Hyunsuk continued, “There is no doubt that both teams have gained much popularity, fame, and fans through this program, but because of that first promise we made with the public and people, and to follow the original guidelines and rules set forth on this show, the losing team will officially and immediately disband.”
Reports are stirring on SNS that YG Winner-Team B copied a choreography from I.aM.mE dance crew without asking permission. It started from a fan’s tweet asking the dance crew’s official twitter account if they have any affiliation with YG Entertainment.
Upon retweeting, member Brandon expressed his frustration through his personal twitter account and wrote, “I don’t understand why these Big Asian companies just don’t hire us to choreograph for their artist instead of steal* our stuff all the time!”
Another member Jaja also wrote a Facebook status.
Supporters of YG have argued that they did credit I.aM.mE Crew but the other party debated that they should’ve asked permission first.
What’s your take on this?
Note: I.aM.mE Dance Crew won America’s Best Dance Crew (ABDC) in 2011. Members are Moon, Brandon,Pacman, Chachi, Jaja and Emilio.
