Fans are also upset that WINNER has replaced the header on their official Facebook page. However, instead of using a new photo with the four members, YG Entertainment used the group's debut photos with Nam Tae Hyun merely edited out, upsetting fans. 




What do you think of all this?

    Stop shitting on YG and YGE for this, is pathetic and not worth it. I understand a lot of fans are upset and grieving (Taehyun was my bias, and Winner was my third favourite group after Infinite and IKon), but he edited out Taehyun due to legal reasons. Legally, since Taehyun is no longer under YGE and had his contract terminated, they are not allowed to use his photos for any advertising unless they pay him royalties for it. Also photoshoots are extremely expensive and timely to do, so it's completely unrealistic to "just take new photos". So many Inner Circles have been waiting (and whining) about the lack of completion of the EXIT album series, well wake-up call, it's because YG felt that Taehyun was not mentally ready/able to undergo that type of stress, so he pushed it back for HIS SAKE. He has has Taehyun's well-being in mind this entire time, even though it doesn't seem like it. YG said that Taehyun's mental unwellness has had an impact on Winner as a whole, and was the reason that nothing was being released. So to all the fans that have been constantly asking "Where's EXIT:X?!" but are now bitching at YGE and YG for terminating Taehyun's contract, just remember that YG did this so that you, the fans, Inner Circles, could have your album sooner and not have to put it off any longer. It's very unfortunate and sad, but this is just the truth. Lets support Taehyun, Winner and other YGE groups and show we can overcome this.

    Also it's not like they could just poof, take a new photo. They would need to rent out a studio and hire photographers, and this typically takes at least a few weeks' advanced notice to do. It's extremely unrealistic.

    You know, you could've just put a picture of the 4 of them instead of cropping out Taehyunnie... it just doesn't feel right.

    It's extremely timely and expensive to take a new photo. For the standard that YGE has, they would've need to have made a reservation for a studio and the photographers many weeks in advance and also its extremely, extremely expensive. It's not an easy stand-them-in-front-of-the-camera-and-snap-a-picture type situation.

    I guess YG needs to leave YGE too. He needs to recover from his current mental health issue.
