Is Jennie trying to expose YG bullshit?

For the past few days (weeks? years?) Blinks have been requesting news about Black Pink. In true YG fashion, these requests were met by cricket song (stream Moon Hyuna on itune/youtube/...). Thus they started a petition and a black out (#BLINKSBLACKOUT). The petition Treat BLACKPINK better, was signed by 33 312 fans and counting.
Now, day two of the petition, Jennie posted the following image on her insta story
#coincidence? Or #Perfecttiming?

What do you think?

if it was any of the other members maybe I'd buy it as shade but the one member who actually has gotten schedules and releases this year?? idk if anything YGE better jump to the next girls solo and quick or it'll be rly obvious that this "solos project" was only a vehicle to push jennie front and center.

coming back to say wtf YGE's gonna launch a gg next year too???

benihime99 13th-Dec-2018 02:58 pm (UTC)
yup, I made a post about it too
way to annoy blinks even more
vintage_boom 13th-Dec-2018 03:08 pm (UTC)
given this context and it being treasure box...maybe jennie is shading them. oof

Why.... is he feeling so productive all of a sudden? Is this in response to SM and JYP gearing up to debut their next ggs?

nekobot 13th-Dec-2018 05:08 pm (UTC)
Probably his response to the girls he's already got turning 21 this year. He needs to find some fresh blood, we can't expect him to keep investing in old hags!

It’s sad how accurate this is
lizanka23 13th-Dec-2018 07:29 pm (UTC)
what happened though? he used to have artists like gummy and lexy. it seems like he wasn't always preoccupied with very young female artists

It's not surprising for creepy men to just get creepier as they get older, I'm more shocked that he doesn't see how stupid acting like this is from a business point of view by now

That was back in the "YG Family" days. Most of the artists early on were people he was close to or had worked with for a long time (and there are still people like Teddy, Kush, and Jinusean that are still one YGE payroll these days).

After Big Bang and 2NE1, his attention shifted. Acts like Big Mama, Lexy, and Gummy were gone and the only new female acts were idols-to-be or Lee Hi and Suhyun who were both teenagers when they signed. There isn't an active female artist signed to YGE over the age of 23 (except Dara and CL, and it's not like they're actively promoted or releasing new music).

agreed, Dara is active though, but to me it looks like she makes her schedule herself lmao, she's always so good at promoting herself and she's so loyal to her fans! she probably has like a few good people on her side within YG to help her out and let her do her stuff in the Philippines and stuff because dear lord YG himself has forgotten all about them
after BB and 2NE1, agreed, his attention shifted for the worse, Gummy was so good though, what the hell is he doing even
sjtaazrz 14th-Dec-2018 12:43 pm (UTC)
Yeah, she seems to have a really solid relationship with her fans from even before 2ne1. She seems like a hard worker.
aures 14th-Dec-2018 12:57 pm (UTC)
i'm from europe, but i love dara too! she always seems so sweet, humble and hard working - she also seems like the type to get close with fans, like she actually wants to get to know in stead the 'we' vs 'them' mentality some idols have these days (though i don't consider dara an idol anymore, more like a celebrity)

Probably just a response to JYP.

I remember when they were talking on Mixnine and they were listing their acts like accomplishments to rub in the other's face. It was something like

JYP: Rain and Se7en came out around the same time
YG: Ah, yes. You won that one. But then it was Big Bang and 2PM...
JYP: True, and the Miss A and 2NE1.
YG: Then Winner and Got7...

and I think the convo ended with YG conceding that Twice was the biggest girl group these days or smtn. I wouldn't be surprised if this was some kind of response to JYPE about to debut the group Ryujin is a part of. Particularly because he joked about wanting to take her from JYPE to his company, then basically did that with Somi and the Black Label.

YG is such a messy stunt queen.
Stay doing tricks & shows.

These poor girls...
aures 14th-Dec-2018 11:39 am (UTC)
what a disaster, they can not even manage BP
YGE is such a mess
ohbubbajoan 13th-Dec-2018 03:27 pm (UTC)
well taking in context the yg treasure box with a new gg... sounds like something
maybe she and cl can team up now
lizanka23 13th-Dec-2018 04:17 pm (UTC)
I hope this petition works because its about time someone calls out yg on their bullshit. Although i wish the petition were about female artists in general at yg. Maybe even a boycott would help since blackpink keeps topping the charts and selling but if it affects yg’s cash flow then he might reconsider

female artists and everyone who isn't Bobby, BI, Mino, or a member of Big Bang
lizanka23 13th-Dec-2018 07:24 pm (UTC)
female artists are more of a priority to me ever since yg has consistently called 2ne1 ugly to their faces. it seems like he mainly focuses on female artists looks rather than developing them as artists
mikachi613 13th-Dec-2018 08:10 pm (UTC)
fair assessment, I just want justice for AKMU
lydzi 13th-Dec-2018 08:27 pm (UTC)
I can't believe people still stan YG after the way he treated 2ne1
dior_chic 13th-Dec-2018 08:58 pm (UTC)
That’s a huge reason why I’m not into BP. History will repeat itself, why get attached
lydzi 13th-Dec-2018 08:26 pm (UTC)
Save those talented girls, 2019! Do it!
scionofawhisper 13th-Dec-2018 09:05 pm (UTC)
What they did to 2ne1 exposed YG for what it is, but people keep expecting something different... lolz.
jaelissi 13th-Dec-2018 09:18 pm (UTC)
Who annoys me more than anyone is fans of any YG group. There's no end to the complaining, but each and every cb, they keep scrambling to line his coffers.
sciencebottle 13th-Dec-2018 10:14 pm (UTC)
I wish that the petition would gain momentum. But fans can boycott sales all they want, its not YG who suffers at the end of the day. Fans stop buying bp's stuff, he'll just trade them in for another group. He's made it abundantly clear that his female artists are disposable and I wish it wasn't that way.
