Cube Entertainment is one of the first entertainment agencies to issue an official statement in light of a new law which came into effect on September 28.

The law, given the name 'The Kim Young Ran Law' after the name of its maker, was essentially created to prevent improper solicitation of favors after accepting gifts in forms of money, food, etc. The law seems to apply to anyone, but more strictly toward public workers. Simply put, it aims to prevent parents from offering monetary gifts to teachers to give their children special privileges in schools, to prevent monetary gifts being exchanged between lower-ranked workers and higher-ups in the work force, and to prevent any situations where individuals are subject to discrimination after hidden, monetary exchanges behind the scenes. 


'The Kim Young Ran Law' is very specific when it comes to monetary values allowed as gift offers between public workers. No one is allowed to provide public workers any food gifts amounting to greater than 30,000 KRW (~ 27 USD), any inedible gift items amounting to greater than 50,000 KRW (~ 45 USD), any monetary gifts amounting to greater than 100,000 KRW (~ 90 USD).


Cube Entertainment's statement in regard to updated fan support methods reads as follows: 


Artists schedules in which fan support is permitted: birthdays and special dates, concerts, official fan meetings, fan sign events. 

Artists schedules in which fan support is NOT permitted: music programs, drama sets and variety programs (any broadcasts), musicals, university festivals, regional festivals, non-public schedules, practice rooms. 

We will not accept any forms of support during any broadcast schedules (meals, snacks, gifts, etc).

We will only accept fan support negotiated with a valid person in charge prior to delivery. 

Negotiations must be made at least 3 days prior to the date of the event, but no support will be permitted on the weekends. 

The above guidelines will be in effect beginning October 1.


Similar procedures will most likely affect all entertainment agencies from now on, as a result of 'The Kim Young Ran Law'.

    I don't understand the logic of the entertainment: The official law is limiting the amount of money/ the value of goods that one is allowed to send as gift -> why does that lead the entertainment to limit the number of events where one is allowed to support their idols????One law does limit the price of individual gifts whereas the entertainment limits supporting schedule..

    I have a problem with the food part. Fans shouldn't be prohibited from providing snacks and meals. Although some agencies have become better about making sure their employees (idols and trainees) eat properly there are still many agencies that don't. There are also agencies that believe that meat and nicer meals are only for those who have worked the hardest and everyone else gets treated to the bare minimum. The snacks and meals provided by fans are sometimes the only treats that idols get. I don't have a problem with the law prohibiting expensive gifts since the idols often can't use everything and if they get caught giving away something it becomes a scandal. For those things fans can donate to their idol's favorite charities or contribute to special events done in honor of their idols.
