YG Entertainment addressed issues on a YG staff impersonator and rumors on YG trainees.
On June 11, YG Entertainment posted a warning on their official Weibo account. The notice stated, "Recently, there were scams involving an impersonator who pretended to be a YG staff. There were also rumors about YG trainees appearing on an audition show. The director of YG auditions always confirm their identity and clarify the communication method. Please do not believe the groundless rumors."
Prior to this, Chinese media outlet Sina reported that according to a YG staff member, a Chinese model has started training under YG China and two Chinese YG Entertainment trainees will be going on 'Idol Producer 2'.
The report proved to be false after all.
