Big Bang's Seungri apologizes to Yang Hyun Suk and YGE head responds

Seungri apologized to Yang Hyun Suk, and the YG Entertainment head responded to claims he deleted complaints from the Big Bang member. 

Yang Hyun Suk posted the below text message exchange between himself and Seungri on January 17, and Seungri's message reads, "I'll put an end to the controversy. I'm sorry for everything. I wanted to be funny, and I think I went a bit overboard." The YGE head also posted a news article about how fans demanded he treat Seungri right as it was reported he was deleting comments about the lack of attention to Seungri's recent Hong Kong concert left on his Instagram. 

The YGE head also wrote, "YG, Seungri, VIP," along with heart emojis in between, adding, "I've never deleted comments in my entire life. I wish everyone a happy new year." Seungri commented on the post, "YG Seungri VIP. Sir, I'll go to the 7th floor anytime. I love you. Forever," referring to Yang Hyun Suk's office location.

Fans of Seungri previously alleged Yang Hyun Suk hadn't given Seungri enough support in terms of backup dancers and a band at this 'The Great Seungri Tour 2019 Live' in Hong Kong.

Still doesn't change the fact that the publicity for Seungri's Manila concert was shit and VIPs had to promote him themselves with their own money. YG has to respond to this.

I think it is pretty evident that YG prefers GD, TOP and Taeyang over Daesung and Seungri.

But from the get go, YG didn't want Seungri in Big Bang. He lost the competition. But Seungri came back and begged for a spot. Good on him for the persistence and he made it. But if it originally went YG's way it would have just been 4 people. And they probably still would have made it big. Maybe there is something to that and YG still has favorites.

Seungri apologizing does make sense to me though. If you got a grievance with the company you take it to the company not the public. Yes he made a joke about it and it was the fans who ran with it but that is partly on him.

Especially in Korean society this Seungri should have thought it out a bit better.

Hope this is all put to bed soon though and the BB boys can release something if they all get out of the Army before Seungri enlists

Also it is not just about Seungri. YG is literally treating all of his group very poorly except for BlackPink and Jennie. Literally now everything he does is for Jennie, and he is forgetting that it was Big Bang and 2NE1 that made YG the big hit company today.

Lets not forget bout how he threw Ikon to Japan for the whole year in 2017 and didnt give a single shit bout them. He just started to acknowledge them like "Oh, so Ikon's in my company" after Love Scenario hit the jackpot and filled the blank spot as the YG's most money maker when BB was in hiatus. Same goes with Winner. I just feel bad for these boys. If only YG paid attention to them earlier, they would have been settled sooner.

Istg as a VIP from all the way back to 2007 I understand and I'm pissed off too but can y'all stop dragging Jennie in the middle of this? It's literally not her fault YG is and Yang Hyundai Suck are assholes, the poor girl gets enough hate alone from her own 'blinks' and you guys are throwing it too? Grow up, I thought us VIPS were better than this since we have been in this messed up rodeo for so many years, it's nothing new for YHS to have people on the spotlight, but as soon as they aren't as fresh as before he discards them and finds someone new. So yeah, leave Jennie Kim alone 2019, because she is not at fault.

In other news: I can't wait for BB to make their own label and destroy YG 🥂👑

Your entire words are just a joke right? YG treated TOP, GD, Taeyang like shit! He always publicly blaimed GD on delaying BB comeback while making BB do 4-5 long tours per till the point GD just want to take a break and breath! He ignored Taeyang last comeback and did NO promoting for his tour!!! He literally didn't defend or stand by TOP in his scandal or at least to protect him from media! TOP mother had to step IN by herself crying in front of reporters to let them be!!!!! You call that "his favorites" fcking where???? YG wanted to end BIGBANG in 2011 because of their scandals, he give up on them, but the 5 men and vips fought together! He never protected them. The fact is YG have only 1 favorite, and that's himself, all he dream of is becoming young again so he will be idol again... BIGBANG for him are just bank account.

Perhaps I view business situations and life in general too simply. Because I see it this way, if you can no longer or no longer desire to support your talent, release them from their contracts with a severance package. All the nastiness and negative publicity is so unnecessary and only harms everyone except the media outlets reporting it.

Such an attention whore. Posting screenshot of a seemingly private conversation between 2 persons? How low can this retard get? And not even addressing why the lack of dancers, band? Little wonder why bumped off from the so called big 3. Management sucks. If you can't do it properly, let others do it. Stay the hell behind scenes instead of wanting to be the forefront of everything.

we have to accept that YG has his favorites and its pretty obvious. Seungri was never the favorite, when he promotes of course GD and Taeyang more. i love Big Bang but i could see that. just like how he use to favor CL over the other members, but now he's just being mean. Jennie is also a favorite. lets be honest. i'm waiting for the other BlackPink members solos to come out. hopefully i'm wrong but lets see if its as extravagant as Jennie's solo.

In GD & Taeyang last comebacks please show me how he favored them? And how he treated them? Because if you followed them you'll now he give literally 0 promotion for GD who released an album (with 2 posters only) and the day later he started his tour that YG didn't reported at all despite it broke many records and was huge! And Taeyang literally the same!!

i know that YG wasn't impressive in promoting them but at least GD and Taeyang got a solo world tour. i was pretty sad about the little promotion yes from Taeyang, because that album was amazing. but i'm just comparing to how even less he cared for Seungri's comeback. i didnt mean to offend anyone i was just stating how i feel YG promotes his artists. he just really suck at it

Treat them differently? You mean how YG deleted TOP photos in the last year from BIGBANG posters and photos? Or how he blamed GD to lack of BB releases or 0 promotion for his album/tour? Or how he ignored Taeyang last comeback and also didn't promo him and his tour at all? Or how he wanted to kick out Daesung and NEVER released his Korean album when Dea said many times he wanted to? Such a great treatment!

I don't feel good bout this. Everyone might saying Seungri has a cheap mouth but the truth is bcs he didnt lie. Imo, YG shouldn't have posted bout this either bcs it might cause a stir. He could stay silent and just let it slide tho. YG just wanted to make a point here that he didnt do anything wrong about this matter. The company can just make a statement they make a mistake and will try their best to accomodate Seungri better in the future and assure the angry VIPs to not be worried bout it but WHY YG? WHY? Man this is so upsetting for me.

Without the other BB members in action, he only has Seungri to continue the name until the other members come out of enlistment. YG gotta be fake for the sake of BB fans to continue to support the company and buy things. If you think about it.. VIPs are hella dedicated fans (imo) to BB and will wait for them for however long (Like how 'Fantastic Baby' was sung since idk 2017.)

BIG BANG and BLACKPINK are his two priority when it comes with money and we all know that. That's the only thing Korean Entertainment cares about is their best group that brings the most money to them. They'll milk them out till they don't have anymore will. *coughs Miss A*

I'm a big supporter of Big Bang, but in reality there is nothing any of us can do. It's YG's company and they have to listen to how he wants to manage his artist. We can complain all we want and it won't do a thing. Only way is to boycott sales so the company's profit takes a hit, but that will also hurt the artist too. In the end it's up to the artist to either put up with the mistreatment or do something about it by moving to another company. If seungri really can't take it I believe he will do the right thing, but maybe this is being blown out of proportion.

I 100% agree with you. Fans use and abuse their power in so many other frivolous ways, why not use it take a stance on what is right? If enough fans mobilize and call out these CEOs for mistreatment instead of concentrating on things that don't effect them (ex. dating) we might see some positive results.

If this was G-Dragon or Taeyang, I'll understand why people would get mad if YHS treats them bad. They are the more well known members of BigBang. But the thing I have always had with Seungri is he's a bit cocky and self centered. He's like Yesung from Super Junior. Seungri thinks he's as big as GD or Taeyang when really he's not. When I think BigBang, he comes last on the members that insta jumps in my head. Okay. So, your hyungs are away at the military. Is that somehow suppose to mean that all the efforts should be focused on you now? Are you the special one now? In hindsight, no. As a group, BP is hot right now. Why? Because they are great as a team and the members all have prominent and successful solo careers - in short, they can stand on their own whether they promote solo or together. But, for me, Seungri becomes background to me when the entire BigBang group is on stage. I didn't even know that Seungri has been touring or anything is going on with him until I saw him whining and complaining. Now, he's gonna retract his scathing comments because he fears for his career? This should teach him to be humble, to take what is given to him, and to never bite that hand that feeds you. Honestly, Seungri's solo career effort is basically subpar. Why would I listen to his solo promotions when there's better solo promotions going on right now from other better, more well known artists?

Get over yourself dude. You're just an opportunistic wanna be famous solo artists now that your hyungs are in the military. Once they are back, no one is going to pay attention to you because they missed your more famous members and you're being shipped off to military after their return. You should have enlisted with them so you all can come back at the same time.

Not a Seungri fan but you don't see the whole picture. Seungri got frustrated with his boss for "stealing" his back-up dancers and sending them to his hoobaes' concert at LAST MINUTE NOTICE. At an artist's standpoint, that is a really shitty thing to do. It doesn't matter if he's the least popular BIGBANG member in your opinion, his fans paid big bucks to watch his concert and buy his merch WHICH WILL BRING YGE $$$$$. He shouldn't have been apologizing, Yang Hyun Suk is an ass. Seungri and his fans have all the right to complain.

Do you understand that your talking crap about someone the rest of bigbang love? You think that GD would thank you for talking about his friend? Please rethink. I'm not trying to be mean. I love all of Bigbang. I will defend them till death. Thank you for listening to my TED talk.
