KBS addresses rumors of being on bad terms with YG Entertainment

There are continuing suspicions that agency YG Entertainment and broadcasting company KBS are not on good terms.

Recently, a rep of YG Entertainment stated to a media outlet, "Big Bang has labored for a long time in order to appear on a KBS music program, but they've yet to receive a response, which is a shame and for which they feel sorry toward fans," raising speculation that a problem lies between YG Entertainment and KBS's entertainment department.  

On top of that, Big Bang's "Fxxk It" was deemed inappropriate by KBS, adding weight to the suspicions.  KBS had claimed the decision was drawn because of the curses, slang, and vulgar expressions used in the song. YG Entertainment had said in response, "We have no plan to modify the problematic portions and submit for another review," so the song won't be able to air on KBS.  

On December 29, a rep of KBS's entertainment department said, "'The higher-ups in KBS would not make a decision, so Big Bang can't appear in KBS's entertainment shows' is not true.  It is true that Big Bang's agency YG Entertainment and the producers who direct our programs have been exchanging words, but it's not like if the directors and managers meet up, then all of the singers appear on the program, right?"

What do you make of all this?

  1. Big Bang
  2. yg entertainment
  3. kbs

Why bother to reconcile? KBS Gayo Daejun is the worst and suck anyway. They won't spend more money on it so leave it. LOL

I admit that this year MAMA was totally fucked up but KBS is suck. They didnt realise how big is the impact Bigbang made for their shows. Lets say Happy Together and YHY sketchbook before.

LOL!! Besides the bad relationship between KBS and YG Ent. that has been explained here... are these guys serious? You want BB to modify their lyrics? Sure, ha!

I'm honestly blown away by how many people don't know the history between these two. It started out with a KBS music show treating BB crappily and then YG overreacted and then KBS overreacted and it just got worse and worse until it hit a peak during Daesung's motorcycle accident. KBS then reported incorrect information about the case and called Daesung a murderer on national television. They were reported to the National Review Committee within hours of that broadcast by multiple entities (including YG, MBC, and SBS). KBS is the one that started it and they're the ones who took it too far but YG didn't budge either. I think that report was when KBS realized they needed to tone it down and YG and KBS have been trying to repair relations for the past couple years (like BB going on Happy Together) but it hasn't been without its trials

What do you expect from a tv station that banned jessica song until she to redo her lyrics when the song only mention a car brand name in just one line during a rap part...

KBS is a Korea national tv station and aired in more than 80 countries. All the while they had been portraying Korean as well mannered society. . So I bet the reason for not allowing Big Bang's "f*** it" is in line with the station's policy. The same had happened to other singer to. KHJ's song Please was banned simply because there were scene of him drinking WINE in the mv. Unbelievable?  Believe it.

Pfft this is why i refuse to watch kbs program anymore.. The only kbs festival video i watched last year was bts got7 and vixx collab which is the best  imo.. Theres so many other way to promote yg artist

The higher ups are acting petty. They're bringing their fued into business which is unprofessional and really high school  like. BB doesn't ever perform on Music Bank they haven't for a while. When they do... like the comments have said below it's usually crappy angles and lighting and a lot of manupilation when it comes to the final countdown. I have seen BB on other KBS shows tho. They've been on Happy Together from time to time and GD was seen on TRoS and same with Sean. So in a way they're not really banned from going onto shows. That would just be really stupid. And the reason about the new song being deemed inappropriate and vulgar is definitely just an excuse. They've performed the same song on other music programs and gets played on variety shows as background music and yet there has never been a complain about it before until now. It's unfair that BB themselves are being put in a position where they are being looked down on because of a fued between executives of both sides. They should really put their fued aside and be professional about their work. It's becoming personal and in the end artists or actors are the ones that gets troubled. They're unable to do a job that they've been doing for a while only because a couple of people are acting like.little teenagers who don't wanna apologize to one another.

KBS used to have super high ratings whenever Big Bang came on, it didn't even matter if it was a joint stage. The relationship went bad after one of the producers and higher ups who apparently disliked them decided to treat them badly. It was said they would sing 2-3 songs but then Music Bank said one last minute and wanted BB to Lypsinc which YGE refused. The charts are constantly manipulated when BB comes out. Its bad an all but the worst thing KBS did was to mess up Big Bangs performance. The lighting was either off the entire time or was on the wrong person, they filmed random angles and switched cameras when they would catch the correct person. WORST CAMERA AND LIGHTING EVER. By comparison SBS and every other network are a work of art at their worst. Even blackpinks disaster of award shows was beautiful compared to the shit KBS pulled on Big Bang. #NEVERFORGET

and people still wonder why YG let their artist on two music shows only!

renn1sm judyi Wednesday, January 4, 2017

I think the most unforgivable thing is when KBS report false information about Daesung's case & called Daesung 'A MURDERER' on national TV!!
