Netizens sign petition asking to ban activities of YG Entertainment artists

With the recent controversies at YG Entertainment, petitioners have spoken up to request the suspension of the activities of the agency’s artists.

In a government petition that was posted on the Blue House’s petition bulletin board on June 12, the original petitioner wrote, “YG Entertainment celebrities are constantly getting involved in drug and marijuana cases and should stop their activities on all broadcasts.”

They continued, “YG Entertainment houses a large number of idol singers, actors, and entertainers. There have been countless drug scandals recently. To say that these are just suspicions, there are too many drug scandals occurring in one agency, which points to a serious problem inside the company.”

Lastly, they added, “They need to be stopped from their activities on all broadcasting media, and a thorough internal investigation on the agency must be conducted.”

On June 12, Dispatch reported that iKON’s B.I was accused of attempting to purchase drugs. Following the news, B.I departed from the group, and YG Entertainment confirmed his departure from both the group and the agency.

I think all of the companies' business activities should be put on hold until they get properly investigated. But realistically they can't do this, at least with Blackpink since they are also signed to an american record label.
