YG Entertainment is being criticized for inconsiderate business conduct.

Originally, Nine Muses A had their press conference scheduled for 2PM on the 4th. However, YG Entertainment scheduled their press conference for Big Bang's 10th anniversary on the same day at the same time, forcing Nine Muses A to move their press conference up to 11AM instead. Similarly, Jun.K had his solo album showcase at 4:30 PM on the 8th, but YG Entertainment scheduled Black Pink's press conference at 3PM, which might overlap with Jun.K's.

This is very different from usual label behavior. In February, ASTRO's debut showcase was scheduled at the same time as Taemin's solo album showcase. In response, SM Entertainment pulled Taemin's showcase up by an hour, and Fantagio Entertainment pushed ASTRO's showcase back an hour to prevent overlap. Similarly in January, Ryeowook's solo showcase and G-Friend's showcase overlapped, and both labels adjusted for an hour each. Usually, labels try to avoid overlapping, and even in the cases of overlap, many labels confer with each other and adjust their schedules.

Both Star Empire and JYP Entertainment revealed that YG Entertainment had not contacted them about the overlapping schedules, even though YG Entertainment was the one who scheduled their press conferences after theirs. As such, YG Entertainment's inconsiderate conduct is being criticized.

The thing is i would like to read the statements given by SE an JYP that they weren't contacted, not just AKP saying it. And after 10 years, is this the first time that Bigbang "forces" other group to reschedule their press conference? And for hundred of groups that debuts all year, is it really just Bigbang that has done it? And other known label compromises but not YG?

while reading all these articles about blackpink's debut, bigbang's 10th anniversary projects, IKON's concerts, still waiting for WINNER's Comeback. They've been locked in that building for too long.

What do you expect from a company owned by a misogynist, devious, greedy guy like Yang Hyun-suk?

YG keeping it business.  courtesy would have been a nice gesture but business is business.  why they gotta make it personal and get petty.

there's this basic moral value called "courtesy" if you don't already know. businesses only work when two parties have a good connection - which essentially means being cordial and polite, and respecting one another's activities.

This is such petty bulls**t it's not like the entertainment places only has ONE Reporter in the entire Company. They can send multiple people to stalk others than they can send different interviewers to different showcases and locations. The articles will come out eventually and people will only care about the ones they want to hear about anyhow. Besides I'm sorry to the other artists but I've Been WAITING for flippen YEARS that's right...YEARS!!! to hear SOMETHING......ANYTHING from YG artists because they only come out once in a blue moon

Ah, a YG stan. "Don't care about anyone else as long as I get my YG fix." I don't think you understand manpower and wages and the fact that the entertainment section of a news outlet might not have squads of reporters. I don't even do news, but I'd have to say I'd probably take a cameraman or two, and then maybe a reporter. And then someone who's recording everything. And it's not like K-pop events are the only ones out there. You have actors, actresses, sports figures, models, OTHER groups and debuts, news about entertainment companies... The world of entertainment is a lot bigger than I'm guessing you appreciate. And the world of good entertainment journalism is most likely not as big.

YG is a dick. It's as simple as that.

I see both sides to this. From an international perspective, many people would call this a smart and aggressive business move- basically, you worry about your own artists, place confidence in their popularity, and go on the offensive to make certain they get primetime in terms of debut. It seems like a savvy move to make, and also makes the market a little more competitive. But from the K-pop perspective, in their entertainment industry they do try to maintain some sort of civil relations between the companies, and it's not uncommon for adjustments to be made like the few that they've stated in order to allow everyone a chance to see multiple artists. So, from that side of things, I can see how many people might think this was rude or inconsiderate, because it's a different atmosphere over there than say, in the U.S. or Europe. Hopefully things can remain civil and adjustments can be made so all the artists (new and current) can get good exposure for their respective debuts and comebacks.
