Yang Hyun Suk laughs about the stigma towards YG not caring about character


Article: Yang Hyun Suk "I get a lot of hate asking if we have a lot of scandals because we don't care about character"

"YG never used to care about looks before, so with 'Mix 9', I hope to pick people who are handsome and pretty." When asked if he's going to judge character, "It's something that's hard to judge in a short amount of time. I know JYP considers it the most important factor but YG gets a lot of hate because it's not something we prioritize first. People ask if that's the reason why YG singers have so many problems (laughter)."

1. [+316, -16] You think that's something to laugh about?????????????

2. [+295, -19] He's really trying to laugh that off

3. [+288, -18] This isn't something you can laugh off, you really should consider setting up character education for your artists. Why do you think your company's nickname is Pharmacy (YG = yak-guk = pharmacy)?

4. [+27, -8] But JYP's singers have definitely shown that they have great character. I remember Park Jin Young used to tell his trainees 'become a person who doesn't have to worry about being careful to not cause problems'

5. [+18, -0] Crazy... he really thinks it's something to laugh about

6. [+16, -1] With 2NE1 disbanded over their drug scandal, I really do wonder how Big Bang is still surviving tsk tsk

7. [+16, -0] As the leader, you do realize that you're mostly responsible for that image? Please educate your artists...

8. [+11, -1] I still don't get why investigations haven't been launched into YG yet.. I bet you they're hiding a ton of stuff

9. [+9, -0] For Yang Hyun Suk to mention it, then it must mean that Park Jin Young really does prioritize character above everything else. Of course compared to talent, talent is more important, but if you want a long lasting career, character is more important.

10. [+8, -0] YG has all the scandals that other companies only have to deal with once in a lifetime..;;; They're like a collection of scandals

Yoo Byung Jae offers an alternative to sexual harassment prevention education


Article: Yoo Byung Jae suggests a different type of education to prevent sexual harassment

Source: Asia Econ via Nate

"Businesses are required to provide education on preventing sexual harassment, it's a law. But the type of education is basic stuff like thinking about how the other person would feel five seconds before you say something, expressing discomfort the minute you feel it, and not ignoring what the other person says or wants.

There's nothing groundbreaking about that. We all know that. No one goes about their day and thinks, 'Oh, I should've respected what that person wanted, I totally didn't know that.' No one goes about their day with the intention to commit sexual harassment like, 'I had noodles for lunch so I should commit a sexual harassment at around 2 pm' or 'I should go pick up some things at Daiso after work and then leave sexual harassment comments online at around 8 pm.'

So what I thought of is that we should instead play hour long videos of interviews of people who got caught committing sexual assaults. Footage of them saying stuff like, 'Ah f*ck, why did I have to commit a sexual harassment and ruin my life! I got fired from work, aigoo, I'm so f*cked! All of you, please don't commit sexual harassment!' Because if you think about it, fear can sometimes be the best type of education."

1. [+380, -22] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Yoo Byung Jae's a genius, he's so funny

2. [+302, -23] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ So funny

3. [+286, -14] I think this could have some good effects. I remember seeing a video on Facebook of an American show where they take iljin students and have them experience what jail life is like. They have real gangsters get all up in their faces and you could see the fear on the kid's face. Totally effective.

4. [+26, -1] This is pointless because some people don't realize that what they did was sexual assault. Doesn't matter if they think about it for 5 seconds or 5 minutes.

5. [+23, -8] Well maybe YG will wake up if we play them interviews of people who got caught doing drugs for an hour

6. [+13, -0] Try implementing that for GD's drug scandal

7. [+12, -5] He will never mention YG's marijuana scandals ㅋㅋ

8. [+10, -3] You could use this education for people who leave hate and false comments too

9. [+10, -2] Can you teach us how to prevent drug abuse too!

10. [+10, -3] He'll never talk about drug abuse prevention because of YG ㅋ

11. [+9, -0] The losers who commit sexual assaults never realize that what they're doing is a crime. They place the blame on you if you point out that you're not comfortable like, "You're no fun", "Why are you such a prude", etc

12. [+6, -1] Americans do this type of education. They'll have people who ruined their lives over drunk driving or drugs and have them give guest talks at elementary, middle, and high schools like, "Don't do what I did." Korea needs to implement this too.

Black Pink's 'Whistle' gets played on American drama 'The Bold Type'


Article: Black Pink's 'Whistle' played on American drama. 'The Bold Type'.. hot popularity that won't stop

Source: SBS via Nate

1. [+527, -96] Whenever I read news like this, I think, 'Oh I see... a Korean song was played in a foreign drama...' and then start to feel embarrassed about it. I don't even think this is that important to be news worthy.

2. [+427, -80] YG is still media playing over stuff like this

3. [+368, -69] The same exact media play YG used with 2NE1... these YG ba$tards never change tsk tsk

4. [+37, -8] So sad that a song being played on some nugu Americna drama on an American cable channel is main page news in Korea ㅜㅜ

5. [+32, -5] What is so amazing about this that it warrants its own media play?

6. [+29, -2] This is why image is so important ㅋㅋ the news itself is great but because they're under YG, people view it negatively ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+26, -5] Well Korean dramas play a lot of foreign songs too... do you see them writing home about it?

8. [+18, -4] It's basically like a foreign song playing in a cafe scene during a Korean drama... basically nothing, not a big deal...

9. [+15, -1] This is such a toadyist article. Oh, so because the American-nims listened to our Korean song, it makes it that much more amazing?

10. [+14, -0] And what has CL been doing

11. [+12, -0] Ugh... it's so embarrassing for me whenever we make media headlines about stuff like this;;; I remember when Jack Black mentioned 'Infinity Challenge' on some talk show, Koreans were headlining it all day ㅋㅋㅋㅋ the toadyism is real

12. [+9, -0] YG really needs to update their marketing team, this type of media play is so old

13. [+8, -0] I don't think anyone's going to care about the music because it's played in a scene where the female lead is changing her panties... ㅋㅋ
