YG Entertainment Completes Construction Of New Headquarter after 8 years

The agency shared, “The new headquarters that we’ve worked on for eight years has finally been completely constructed, so we began moving some of the employees and equipment on September 16.”

YG Entertainment’s new headquarters is located in the neighborhood of Hapjeong in the Mapo District of Seoul. It is situated immediately next to the previous headquarters on 3,145 square meters of land and is a nine-story building with five additional floors underground. The building’s total floor area is 19,835 square meters.

YG Entertainment had been purchasing land nearby for four years since 2012 in order to build their new headquarters. The construction began in 2016, and the building has now been completed after four years.

The new headquarters’ facilities include a two-story tall auditorium, seven large dance practice rooms, seven large recording studios, and 30 personal studios for the company’s songwriters and artists. The entire second floor was designed to be a modern food court, and the basement floors include large-scale fitness and recreational facilities for the company’s employees and artists. A bridge will be built between YG’s previous headquarters and the new one.

The reporting period for this year is 23 March 2019 to 14 March 2020, so I find it odd why MOTS:7 wasn't nominated for an album award when it was released in 21 February 2020.

Some fans are already shouting for a boycott while others are trying to appease the situation by saying that this is only about additional content. What do you think? Will this be a mess or not a big deal?

Edit: Added new SM notice that there will be no fan voting for the teams anymore, thanks carmine_pink
