Seventeen's fans demand 'Getting Closer' MV teaser to be taken down from Pledis Entertainment's YouTube channel

It seems that fans of Seventeen are demanding their latest MV teaser to be taken down from its current channel.

On December 15th, K-netizens from a community forum discussed the issues of Seventeen's MVs being uploaded on Pledis Entertainment's YouTube channel due to a low subscriber count. 

Previously, all of Seventeen's teasers and MVs had been shared on Seventeen's own channel, which has garnered over 3,240,000 subscribers since debut. Apparently, the company has recently made the decision to merge all MVs of their artists to a single channel, "to strengthen the body of the company" (as defined by the fans).

When Seventeen's MV for "Don't Wanna Cry" hit 100 million views, the first time any MV of Seventeen has reached the milestone, the CEO of Pledis Entertainment had shared an Instagram post with the words: "We will build a bigger fence". Fans have reacted negatively to this decision, since it "seems to benefit the interests of the company rather than individual artists."

Since many have already subscribed to Seventeen's YouTube channel, fans are now worried that this change may significantly affect the rise of the view counts during the transition. In addition to online forums, the Comments section under the teaser also reflects their demands to re-upload the teaser back on their original channel.

Currently, Pledis Entertainment's YouTube channel has about 594,000 subscribers.

What do you think of this situation?

I subscribe to every possible channel I can find. The account shouldn't matter too much if you are really following YouTube activity. However I do understand it's annoying.

I mean i guess subscribers who care about seventeen enough to subscribe to their channel , will still watch their mv regardless of the channel so personally i think it's not a big deal and it won't really affect the number of views

Sooo??? Just subscribe to both channels and that's all. If you are a fan you can find the MV no matter where it is. I'm actually subscribed to over 200 channels of K-Pop artists.

That's f*cking stupid, Pledis created them, end of the day idol's and their groups are similar a product to make money for their said companies. Whether you love them or not they were created to make money primarily, it's a shit world.


It's like saying a Big mac burger shouldn't be advertised on a McDonalds website

The general worried response from Carats appears to be pretty justified it seems - judging by the massive difference in subscriber count between Pledis Entertainment's channel and Seventeen's channel - the group might miss out on immediate views of their MV's. They seem to be bringing good attention to it though, so if every Carat gets the memo and hops onto the Pledis channel Seventeen won't miss out. It is quite unfortunate that they decided to make that decision though, I hope they reconsider and simply post the content on both channels.

People also need to move on from thinking views on youtube are the main competition or are supporting them so much. BUY THE ACTUAL products instead of downloading them is actually supporting.

for me it's not a big deal, if you're their fans, you will search and streaming the MV wherever the MV is. It's on Pledis channel or on SVT channel, it will still give benefits for SVT, if you streaming the MV. it makes no difference. the important thing is SVT channel still exists, and they will still enter a lot of things about SVT on SVT channel.
