Fans are definitely displeased about a special, odd event planned for Sechskies's upcoming reunion concert, '2016 Sechskies Concert - Yellow Note'. 


On August 9, YG Entertainment announced that several fans will have a chance to perform on stage with Sechskies by joining the choir. Fans can tryout by recording themselves singing the group's hit song "Couple", then submitting a recording via SNS. The selected singers will not only perform with Sechskies, but will also receive free concert tickets, goods, and a chance to take pictures with the stars.

Sechskies fans aren't taking too well to the announcement. Many are against the idea of having only several fans on stage, reasoning that the concert needs to be enjoyed equally by all, without special privileges. Some also worry that non-fans such as trainees may try out for the choir, simply for a chance to show off their skills for YG Entertainment. 


Fans, pointing fingers at YG Entertainment for "ruining" the true meaning of Sechskies's long-awaited reunion, have been demanding online that the event be canceled, but despite ongoing demands, YG has yet to speak up on the issue. 


What are your thoughts on the special event?

    Like the whole allkp new page recently: fans demand____, netizens demand _____, lol wtf wrong with people these days, it's like they expect the whole world to revolve around them just because they are in front of a keyboard. =.=

    They shouldn't have done a video submission. They should've made it a candid event, where each member just picks out one willing fan in the crowd, more fun that way~

    Think they should cancel just that special event thing. Part of what I like about Kpop and what amazes me is the unity, like fan-chants or when an entire audience sings along... why can't YG just do that? or is this really just another audition opportunity to them...?

    why can't YG just do what they are doing? I mean, they know what they are doing and they appreciate Sechskies so much (like every fan), I believe that this is a special thing and Sechskies probably accepted this.

    Doesn't the article explain it? It's against the basis of Kpop itself, cuts out the fans, and Sechskies probably had limited say in it, I mean Sechskies is YG's, with these things, normally when the company says jump, your only comment can be how high?

    That's probably the case in other companies, but YG usually value their artists opinions more than this.

    I understand the fans and agree with their concerns. However, I don't think cancellation's the solution.

    well they hava a good point, there's always people that aren't even fans and take advantage of this kind of event, some people don't even know the songs and win while the real fans lose their opportunity, it sucks.

    I was low-key thinking it was a plot to recruit trainees.

    I can see the reasoning about potential trainees, but the rest sounds like it's just coming from jealous fans that know they can't sing and don't want other fans to get "closer" to their idols...I mean seriously, get over it. These singers have been around for years and they're a lot closer to a ton of people than some of their fans, that's just the way it is. Don't let jealousy ruin a cool reunion for you.
