YG Entertainment terminates contracts with Seungri

YG Entertainment and Seungri have parted ways.

On March 13, the agency released the following statement:

Hello, this is YG Entertainment.

Starting with the assault case at the club that Seungri participated in, various suspicions and controversies have continuously arisen. We bow our heads and express deep apologies for causing trouble to many people including fans.

On March 12, following the announcement of Seungri’s retirement, YG agreed to Seungri’s request and decided to terminate his exclusive contract.

YG acknowledges that as a management company, we were not able to manage thoroughly, and we are deeply reflecting.

Lastly, YG realizes the need for extensive reform and promises to put in our full effort into achieving this together with all of our staff.

Lots of people have been speculating about whether the other bb 4 knew or had inklings bc of Seungri, but I haven't seen much about whether they did bc of their connection to YG.
Considering YG & Seungri are linked for the clubs and the tax evasion, I expect YG's hands are super dirty too.

And that those idols and producers under him who are close to him (GD, Teddy, Taeyang) must have had ideas of what was happening.

Whether people grown in a system and passively aware are as culpable... 🤷. There are gradients, but it seems those senior idols must have known about the sex trade at least.

And someone like Teddy didn't grow up in YG, so I may hold him to a higher standard.

GD and TOP are both misogynists too so while I don’t see them partipating in exactly what Seungri was up to, I don’t see them being some innocent naive band members either.

They knew or had an inkling and no one did anything. So many men knew and did nothing. In my opinion that is indictment enough.

Lmao.
Y’all actually used the Burning Sons tag. Love it!


That said, until they get rid of YHS too, YGE ain’t shit.

Deeply reflecting.

Great. Sure. That's exactly what everyone wants YG to do. Reflect.

Ofc people are trying to drag the rest of bb into this shit. The speculation is disgusting. Seungri is guilty as hell but that doesnt make his group mates guilty by association when there is no evidence against them.

You really think they didn't know? Big bang seems pretty close and misogynistic, why would seungri keep this from them.

it took yg this long to terminate his contract... ffs, this company is hopeless.

Well DAYMN, they aren't even denying the charges or pulling the infamous kpop ambiguous statements.

lizanka23 13th-Mar-2019 07:20 am (UTC)
ok extensive reform...what are the steps?? what are the concrete actions you're going to take? it's not enough to just reflect. i'll believe it when i see a written plan with bullet points

someone save blackpink and winner, and just burn YG down
nana_the_dwarf 13th-Mar-2019 10:22 am (UTC)
Sis, get Lee Hi and AKMU outta there too.
lydzi 13th-Mar-2019 08:37 am (UTC)
The only reform you need is YG stepping out of YG tbh
lilmissniza 13th-Mar-2019 08:50 am (UTC)
Unless reformation means an entirely new management without lizard hat and his brother, then no. Somebody save the female artistes and Winner and Akmu. Like, if I'm any of them I'd bail and find an escape from this sinking ship ASAP.
pseudo_shigure 13th-Mar-2019 09:13 am (UTC)
they only terminate his contract after he quits. rme.

everyone want yg to crash and burn, but i hope y'all meant YG as in YHS, bc the other artists in the company don't deserve that (only if they're not involve ofc)
