Eric Nam posted and then quickly deleted the complaining tweets about his label, CJ E&M / B2M Entertainment

On February 16, Eric Nam boldly expressed his opinions on social media, writing, "My company don't respect me." Several minutes later, he once again tweeted,  "Naw this ain't hacking. This is just the truth."

Both tweets were then quickly deleted from his account. What do you think is going on here?

ummm suspicious since I'm pretty sure eric nam knows proper grammar...

yungtaro DbSj_15 Friday, February 17, 2017

he does know proper grammar but he also speaks like this often. not on broadcasts and stuff but you can find little videos of him and his friends and he does speak like this.

Naryu yungtaro Friday, February 17, 2017

I think what the commenter meant is the "dont" part. It should be doesn't. Not the "naw" part...? Note the "I think" cause I'm not sure if the commenter really meant that. But with as far as I can see, that's the only grammatical error I can find and it is not related to the way he speaks.

DbSj_15 Naryu Friday, February 17, 2017

yeah haha sorry I wasn't clear; I mean't the don't part. I've watched moderate amount of Eric Nam stuff (cause amber, and he's also so damn cute), but idk those two tweets just didn't sound like the way he would speak to me

But, he's been doing very well for himself lately? He's become very popular since the company pulled him from ASC and got him on various other shows. That might not automatically translate to album sales, but his label/s have been pretty good to him lately.

Yeah CJEM is quite good on promoting his artist but sometimes they can't do what they want, too much of schedule and so on.. maybe some of people can't accept that..

monsterlulu Thursday, February 16, 2017

Bruh don't get caught

melenay Thursday, February 16, 2017

wasn't he in JYP???

thefabcat92 melenay Thursday, February 16, 2017

how did you even get that thought???

HogooKang melenay Thursday, February 16, 2017

Lol no, he's in CJ entertainment and he was previously in B2M entertainment

triniblossom HogooKang Thursday, February 16, 2017

He left B2M? o_o I didn't know that.

Calamity10 HogooKang Friday, February 17, 2017

I thought he was from SM Entertainment LOL

melenay thefabcat92 Friday, February 17, 2017

I don't know... I always thought he was in JYP XD.

nafiqah Thursday, February 16, 2017

Well it could happen because before,  Jung joon young also in CJEM and then he leave after his contract ended because he can't made a music that he want to do.. CJEM just fill his schedule with many variety appearances and there are sometimes he doesn't feel to appear to that programs but he have to .. he also had complained that his company planned his schedule too messy until sometimes he doesn't have time to eat.. so after he leave CJEM, I heard that his new company allow him to make a decision on his own schedule..

thefabcat92 nafiqah Thursday, February 16, 2017

so far, my opinion on CJ E&M has been downgraded so fast.

homrackssr nafiqah Thursday, February 16, 2017

Not to mention, SPICA asked for contract termination before this happened. CJ.........😒

lolhaha Thursday, February 16, 2017

My heart aches...The South Korean government has been in political turmoil for a while...It's almost as if seeing the Guilded Age of America again. While it seems fine on the outside, there's a lot of political corruption within the system. The economy is totally dominated by monopolies and the spoils system is used left and right...There's hardly any workers rights, and when there is, the law isn't executed properly. It's difficult to maintain a stable country when you're still recovering from (and technically still in) war. I can talk from my family's personal experience of a war-ravaged country. It's really saddening to see the lack of human and workers rights despite having such an industrially advanced society. Allkpop is a site that only covers Korea's pop culture, but even then, we see that celebrities are constantly treated horribly with unfair pay and health conditions. It really makes you think that if this is even how idolized celebrities are treated, there are far more average people in Korea without workers rights who might be suffering just as badly, but don't even have the public's eye to help or hear them.

As a history buff, it feels really nice to see a comment that references the Guilded Age.

It must be hard for American-Korean artists like him to live in Korea. Americans are known to express their feelings/inner thoughts while Koreans tend to suppress their feelings/inner thoughts. When they deal with issues they probably talk to the walls in their houses a lot to get out all that pend up frustration of not being able to express their thoughts more often (without being judged, misunderstood or offending anyone).

ed_levy BigBangVIP_NYC Thursday, February 16, 2017

what kind of horse nonsense is this? do you even KNOW any Koreans? they talk shiat all day. a middle aged Korean woman is like talking to the angriest black lady. think Michelle Obama on kimchee. the LAST people on Earth to "suppress their feelings" are Koreans. quit posting racial generalizations when you literally have never been to Korea and know 2 koreans total. the difference is that gyopos have not been socialized so they don't know how to express their grievances and always resort to "out of ideas" gems like ranting on twitter. what any Korean will do in a work setting is organize factions and constituencies so that even if their supervisor doesn't "respect them" they can go over their head or otherwise get what they need. Korean Americans are tone deaf on the social interactions. this isn't just KA, it's Americans in general with a very low social IQ. in fact during the Modernization of PRC, Chinese managers in China SPECIFICALLY prioritized Singapore/HK, Taiwan then finally ABCs in that order. even if American Chinese had all the language and work skills, they lacked the EQ and sensitivity to the NUANCES of management, making them horrible managers and motivators for Chinese who are plugged in.

He should do an association with Henry at this point. That might also be why most American-Korean artists knows each other a little more as they can support and share their feelings. (Is there a name for those? Like Amber-line ? xD)

ed_levy Kyzara Thursday, February 16, 2017

Why so they can debut as a double no-charisma team and then with no one left to blame, finally turn on each other on SNS? Henry has been EXTRAORDINARILY supported by SM. not only in Korea but as much as SM could in China as well. he is NOT POPULAR ANYWHERE. that is not anyone else's fault. Henry's only charm is playing the greasy Chinese foreigner, and even though that's got him far in Korea it doesn't play in China or elsewhere. think what Jackson was able to do done starting with his very limited exposure in Chinese TV and what he made that into. some people just don't have it. Eric is a great host but average voice and not much charisma or stage presence

Kyzara ed_levy Thursday, February 16, 2017

Why are you so defensive lol? We've never said anything like that! You just use our comments to point the things you don't like.

BigBangVIP_NYC Kyzara Thursday, February 16, 2017

I know, right? Hahaha. This person seems to be carrying a lot of baggage. I couldn't read past the first sentence of the above post!

BigBangVIP_NYC Kyzara Thursday, February 16, 2017

True they need a support group. One where they can be theirselves and not pretentious. curse if they want to curse, scream ignore they want to scream etc...without worry about the SK "public" opinions.

jinssam ed_levy Thursday, February 16, 2017

Lol You literally put so many words into BigBagVIP_NYC's mouth (i.e. knowing "2 Koreans," never been to Korea) that I wasn't too sure if you were actually responding to him/her and, btw, you criticized him/her for the exact things that you're doing (generalizing that all Korean-Americans "have not been socialized" (we're humans, not dogs, but thanks for that), "tone deaf on social interactions," "Americans in general with a very low social IQ," generalizing that "a middle aged Korean woman is like talking to the angriest black lady" (double generalization in one phrase! *golf clap*), etc.). So let me actually respond to your comment. It's not that Korean-Americans (or for that matter, foreign-born celebrities) in South Korea are "tone deaf on social interactions," but more that language barriers often happen since most are not native speakers of Korean, especially when it comes to technically things, like contract provisions. It can be quite frustrating, especially since contracts between parties are frustrating even when you're speaking the same language. Koreans might "talk shiat all day," but there certainly is an expectation that you don't simply walk up to your boss and start yelling at them about the inefficiencies of the company, unless you want to be fired or face some disciplinary action. That's probably not the norm anywhere... And if you can't differentiate between a Korean middle aged woman speaking in a social setting compared to a professional speaking in a business setting, may the lord help you. Your point about Koreans organizing factions and constituencies to go over their supervisors' heads is literally the definition of suppressing your thoughts and beating around the bush to get to your goal, but sure. The lower half of your argument becomes less and less logical, so I don't think it's quite worth responding to "horse nonsense." Oh, and I know a lot of Koreans and Korean Americans and have lived/been to Korea multiple times, since that apparently seems to be very very critical in your logic to understanding the situation.
