At least one member of Inner Circle has had enough of YG Entertainment's alleged antics and is suggesting a boycott of the upcoming release of WINNER's DVD, demanding WINNER's comeback.

A post titled '(YG closing their ears, angered Inner Circle) WINNER's fandom is saying that they are going to boycott' appeared in the top posts on Nate Pann, drawing attention of other fandoms.

SEE ALSO: WINNER announce their comeback date with 2nd full album!

The post consisted of a boycott poster created by a member of Inner Circle stating, "YG closing their ears, angered Inner Circle," and "We are not an ATM, WWIC DVD Boycott!"

The poster continues,

Due to YG's unilateral decision of delaying WINNER's comeback, WINNER's official fandom, Inner Circle is declaring the boycotting of 2015 WWIC in Seoul DVD.
YG's actions against WINNER & Inner Circle since WINNER's debut (August 17, 2014):

1. After announcing that they would be 'immediately debuting' on October 25, 2013, the debut date was unilaterally delayed for 10 months. Since their debut on August 17, 2014, their comeback has been delayed almost one year (a total of 22 months of hiatus).
2. Holding more than 10 Japan tour for two years without any new releases (group activities in Korea nonexistent)
3. Only one album release since debut
4. A total of 5 DVDs released since October 25, 2013 with only one album release. In addition to announcement of them releasing two additional DVDs: 2015 WWIC in Seoul Fan Meeting DVD and Season Greeting DVD
5. Behind-the-scenes footage and dance practice videos that other groups upload with no conditions, WINNER is selling it as a part of Seasons Greeting DVD
6. Though there has been teaser SNS posts, hyping up the anticipation of the fandom, there has yet to be an update
7. News reported the title of WINNER's title track, stating their November comeback
8. But YG unilaterally delays comeback plans

The original creator of the boycott poster ended the statement saying that Inner Circle plans on boycotting the DVD until WINNER make their comeback and will no longer tolerate YG Entertainment treating the fans like ATM machines.

What are your thoughts on this issue?

What kind of fans is that...hahaha.. I'm wondering what will you achieve from that boycott things.. I love Winner as much as you do but I'll just wait patiently for their comeback because I can't stop imagine how Winner's members felt sorry towards YG and iKon on behalf of some of ICs. Lol. #justsaying

WinMin Monday, November 2, 2015

LOL why would they feel sorry towards iKon though?! ummm I'm sure this boycott is against only YG and it won't affect ikon in any way -__- and also why would they feel sorry towards YG too when he's treating their fans like shit and keeps delaying their comeback? I'm sure even Winner want to promote more and comeback at least once in a year for their fans. We actually may achieve many things because of this but it's look like you know nothing how really YG treat Winner or their fans, are you sure you love them as much as we do? maybe you do like them but I don't think as much as we do, because we're doing this for them and also for us, it's not just about the comeback we want the bts and practice videos for free like how all other YG fandoms got it for free, we want Winner to be promoted more sorry we won't stay quiet about YG shitty management, we all know he suck it that if you don't want to do anything about it then we will, the long hiatus only harming Winner more, they're not young, they only have like 4 years to promote before Jinwoo enlistment, they're losing fans and some people already forgot about them, know what's really happening before talking darling.

lolol looks like you dont understand. Why should Winner be sorry when its that retard YG keeping them from making a comeback?? Why is iKON even on this?? Boycotting will let YG give more attention to Winner and then give the comeback. 1 year with absolutely no activities (dont even say about the japan tours because Winner is not a Jpop group). We waited almost a year for them to debut then another year for them to comeback?? Ridiculous. #justshutup and wait patiently like you said.

cree minoxme Tuesday, January 10, 2017

but don't forget, that they are not a machines and quality is more important. Comeback every year? are you kidding, you nee more shitty songs or less but good quality. If they will have good quality, they will have big international and various age auditory. Look at X Japan, even when they back after 15 years hiatus, they had full Tokyo Dome, because they was high quality band. I don't say that YG is perfect, they need to kick their ass sometimes, but if they will go the right way, they will be successful for a long time and wont be super popular just in their twenties. I don't look at them as idols i look at them as perspective group

The only fandom who thinks that this action is immature and all is Ikonics while the other older fandom like VIP and Blackjack show their support...Hmmm..interesting

ourcheers2u Sunday, November 1, 2015

I'm a VIP and I think this is a bit much. But I can understand the whole 'buying dance practices' thing which I think is absolutely absurd. In all, this has a pretty good shot at success...and a pretty good shot at resulting in a very bad thing for Winner's career.

Im blackjack and im fine with it. 7 dvds for 1 album is too much

winnerisbae Saturday, October 31, 2015

YG needs to get his shit together seriously someone give this man a calendar. ;and if dares to try and squeeze in Winner's comeback in between iKON's promotions inner circle will never forgive him. he delayed it so long that at this point I'd rather wait till iKON and BB's promotions are over so Winner can get the full spotlight when they comeback ;

parastoof Saturday, October 31, 2015

you are not a fan...haters are better than you..they just hate without reason but you make your group members sad just bcz a comeback delay????we are sad too..but its not a way to reach our wants...i wanna ask u what the real meaning of being a fan?isnt it mean to love them and support them and love someone they love????if it isnt keep your fu*king thes works...but i assure you winner will be really sad just bcz of you and they wont forgive us...

WinMin Monday, November 2, 2015

Ha? We're doing this because we love them, delaying their comebacks and long hiatus actually harms them a lot and I'm sure they're sad about that more. Why would they get sad when they know we're doing this because we do care about them? And eventually we'll buy the DVDs after their comeback so they won't really lose anything and this boycott it's not for the comeback, did you even read the article we pay to see their bts and practice videos while other yg fandoms got it for free and that one of the biggest reasons why we're doing this.

parastoof Monday, November 2, 2015

@WinMin i know we suffered a lot..but their comeback is not ready what???i mean we all know yg doesnt care about somethings like it just hurts winner...i am vip too we wait 3years and we got this bomb comeback..i know waiting is hard but you should know their comeback will have value of our long just keep calm down

WinMin Monday, November 2, 2015

@parastoof I know their comeback with be worth waiting but the time can't wait for their them forever, actually their comeback is ready, you really don't know that? Even non incles know they have many songs completed, they even finished filming two MVs and will film another 2 MVs to songs that are ready to be released, they're just waiting for a comeback date like all of us from YG to release it. We're not asking too much one single is fine for now, I'm a VIP too and I waited those 3 years but it was much easier as a VIP than an Incle, I don't know why you guys keeps comparing BigBang to Winner, Winner is a rookie group people will forget about them if they go to long hiatus, BigBang was already an established group when they went on that long hiatus and even though they did they had MANY solo activities, Winner aren't young they don't have a lot of years as a whole group like BB had or ikon, AkMu. Jinwoo will enlist after 4 years, going on long hiatus will harm them more and more. And if you guys choose to wait and not say anything then that's your own choice but we're not gonna stay quiet and we clearly know what's the best for Winner more than you so stop forcing your opinion on us.

WinMin Monday, November 2, 2015

@WinMin *will

minoxme Monday, November 2, 2015

@parastoof Um excuse me VIPs situation is VERY different from the ICs. At least BB had solo activities, variety show appearances, and even many songs to listen to right?? But Winner is a ROOKIE group. All they have is 10 songs from the album predebut songs. Not to mention YG being a bitch and keeps throwing DVDs for us to buy, but we buy it anyway because we just want to see them. All they did for the whole year was japan tours (lol they're not even a jpop group)

yoonbread Friday, November 6, 2015

@parastoof another supposed VIP that is telling Incles to come down. I've been a VIP for 8 years now. No... It is not the same thing. Time is not the issue.. It's the treatment. So stop it. You don't know what you are talking about. I can name you all the songs BB came out with in their first two years and it's a lengthy list... Including featurings and side projects.

lizvip Monday, November 9, 2015

@parastoof 'm a VIP, but I agree with inenr circle. We VIPs waited for Bigbang wiith a lot of solo projects, they did not disappered from korea, like winner, they are not having 3 weeks of promotions, and they are not promoting only 1 song of their album, as well we VIP recive all the shows performances on their channels, including awards shows, and some BTS, not like Innercircle tha thad to buy all of it, they dotn get uploaded their stuff, is sad if youa ask me that innercircle are not being treated like other YG fandoms, YG really is doing bad to them.

Greenikkie3 Saturday, October 31, 2015

DON'T EVEN SAY YOU ARE YG SYAN if you don't even know YG had BB make 5 come backs with 3 singles, 1 full album and 1 mini for the 1st 12 months after their debut Average term between comebacks was-2.5 months (3-5 months is now the average in-between term for the current newbies comebacks like Got7, Red Velvet).

;2ne1 was not that different (3 comebacks, 2 digital singles, 1 solo) ;

Ikon is scheduled to make 4 comeback for 4 straight months with 6 MVs free live concert airing, behind scenes of fan meetings in each venue, real-time varieties (VApp) etc. ;

THEN WINNER? FOR THE FIRST 15 MONTHS , 1FL album, ;3mvs for 2 month activity term WITH NO FREE DANCE PRACTICE, NO MAKiNGS, NO behind scenes, Nada, which all later were sold in DVDs. ;

And now Winner is ready with at least 4 songs with mv but their comeback has again been postponed without any fixed dates while ;YG is promiting Winner's 7th DVDs th the fans!! NO GROUP IN THE WORLD, even Sm does not sell 7 dvds to the fans for a newbie group without making their comeback for 15 months. NONE. Ever. THIS IS A SHAME. ;

Come on YG you have 9 artist/groups now!!!...If one YG artist/group will promote for 4 months straight ;then winner will have a comeback after three years lol..I am not hating on Ikon i love them but when YGdecided that Ikon will ;promote for 4 months, of course there are people will hate on Ikon, they just rookies they may have alot of fans but maybe if he gave them ;just 2 months of promotion it will be enough and for bigbang of course its understandable they can have as many they want because they are bigbang haha.... Anyway just wana say that YG artists are really popular and talented so YG should fixed their artists schedule before the year starts.

proud_VIP_incles Friday, October 30, 2015

Wish our boys in the list .. T-T
