this could be really fun (esp. as a mockumentary like op mentioned!), but i kinda have a feeling like it won't be. idk why.

So it's like The Office or Parks and Rec, but YG? I'm in.

It has Man Who Actually Does Stuff In Life, aka Seungri, so firstly I kinda, but still shyly, believe it will actually happen.
On the other side I hate all three main YGE's sympathy gaining tactics: whole "YHS let his idols make fun of him, so he's not that awful at all" thing, their idols going on shows and tellling how crazily strict it is in YG so people will go "awww" and that "we're exclusive, really exclusive brand". It all will prob used "ironically" here, but I'm not here for "humanazing" this crazy ass company Imao

Art imitating life imitating art imitating life...

I'm HFT as I am for most Big Bang related things (which reminds me, I need to finally cancel that subscription to Youtube Red).

This is going to be amazing. I know a lot of people don't like Seungri and he is questionable but out of all the Big Bang members he has the most hustle for work. I hope he gets more gigs till he enlists.
