YG Entertainment apologizes to WINNER fans for iKON clip at concert

YG Entertainment has apologized for unintentionally playing a clip of iKON at WINNER's 'Everywhere' tour concert in Kuala Lumpur on October 14.

WINNER fans demanded an apology from the label after a VCR of iKON was played at WINNER's concert in Malaysia and music not related to WINNER was played during the event. YG Entertainment released the following statement:

"We sincerely apologize to the WINNER fans who were hurt due to the unrelated video and music played at the 'WINNER 2018 Everywhere Tour in Kuala Lumpur' this past weekend. We deeply apologize for the inconvenience caused by the programmer's carelessness and incorrect file management. The person in charge took responsibility and left the tour schedule afterwards, and the program was checked multiple times afterwards."

As previously reported, this isn't the first time Inner Circle was put off by YG Entertainment's management of WINNER's events. In the past, an official fan cafe post addressed them as iKONICs, and at a Seoul WINNER fan meet, staff welcomed them to the iKON concert. Yang Hyun Suk has also previously written "iKON's tour" as the hashtag for WINNER's promotion.

What are your thoughts on the concert error?

It's a shame that YG is so unsubtle with showing his preference for certain artists or groups. Team B / iKON had always clearly been his favorite out of the two groups, even back when they were still on the survival show. Making a mistake once by adding the wrong hashtag is one thing but making a mistake multiple times, that's just deliberate.

YG, your bias is showing. Make sure to double and triple check next time so you can promote your artists properly.

He can apologize all he wants, but that will it stop happening? I don't think so.

They're massively underrated by their label and shouldn't be treated like they're only a second priority to iKON. I get that iKON is big or whatever for YG but they're not your only artists

I wanted to say stop dragging Ikon into this problem its not ikon's fault and you're out of line but nope.. Its fact that Ikon is now the biggest money maker in YG so ofc all eyes on them. Deal with it and a little note to yourself, have you ever had this kind of thought when Winner hit the jackpot last year while Ikon was nowhere to be seen? Bet you didnt so just shut up.

That's a very aggressive tone but I understand your point. And you're right, we can't ignore that iKON is part of this, maybe even just a small part, but shouldn't there be a certain degree of respect for any artist? And I would like to express my own opinions, so I'd appreciate it if you at least putting "shut up" in a kinder tone.

seems like lightning doesn't strike twice when it comes to boy groups. After bigbang, yg has been completely ignoring his boygroups. Same thing with JYP, after 2pm Got7 and Stray Kids are being ignored. Hopefully this doesn't happen with bighit and hopefully NCT will continue to grow and dominate in the future. SM seems to be the only business smart entertainment company in korea tbh

So ICs you happy now? YG apologized and the employee responsible was "removed" from the schedule. Or was that too much? or maybe it's not enough? what do IC want to come of this. and if you say for not to happen to begin with well people make mistakes and some dont give af. so all YG can do is remove said person. which he did.
