G.O confirmed that sajaegi (chart manipulation) does exist in the K-Pop industry. 


During a recent live stream on Afreeca TV, G.O revealed that MBLAQ received a sajaegi offer in the past. 


G.O first explained that sajaegi rumors came to the surface around 2010. During this period when sajaegi was becoming a hot issue, MBLAQ's agency was approached by a sajaegi company. 


G.O states that he did not directly witness it personally but the agency's employees told him that 2-3 men came to them, and claimed they can make MBLAQ take #1 on music charts for a month for the price of 400 million KRW (375,325 USD). MBLAQ's agency rejected the sajaegi offer

It turns out that MBLAQ's agency wasn't the only one approached by the sajaegi company. One time, MBLAQ used the same waiting room as 2PM. One of the 2PM members told G.O, "Hey, guess what? Some guys came to our company and said they can manipulate charts. They said they can have us on top of the charts for a month for 700-800 million KRW (650,000 - 750,000 USD)." At that point, artists were sure that the sajaegi rumors were all true.
