The boycott is about three things:
- Pledis not effectively dealing with sasaengs (there was an incident that blew up one or two weeks ago) and not giving adequate feedback on how they will deal with this issue in the future (seventeen has been having trouble with rule-breaking fansites and sasaengs and Pledis usually only gives lipservice when fans ask about it)
- Staff leaking out info about the boys whereabouts on social media, which gets used by sasaengs
- Pledis suddenly deciding to upload Seventeen MVs on the Pledis YT channel that has a significantly smaller subscriber number (600K i think) compared to the 3 mio SVT has. (I'm not sure if they plan to completely merge the channels).

Somehow the whole thing got twisted in the english-speaking kpop circles that it is only about the Youtube channel, when that was the last (admittedly big) drop in the bucket.
