Pledis Entertainment announces Seventeen will upload contents on their separate channel once again

Pledis Entertainment has decided to separate the Seventeen YouTube channel once again.

After Pledis Entertainment had decided to start uploading Seventeen content onto the Pledis Entertainment channel, many Seventeen fans had protested the merging of the two channels. However, it seems that Pledis Entertainment has decided to reseparate the channels.

The label said, "Hello, this is Pledis Entertainment. First of all, we would like to thank all the fans who show unchanging love and interest to Seventeen. For the past three weeks, all the employees in Pledis Entertainment under CEO Han Sung Soo talked about running and managing the Seventeen YouTube channel, which has been the interest of many fans. We have decided that all of the YouTube contents related to Seventeen will be uploaded on their own channel. This has started already with the 'You Made My Dawn' album trailer that was released at midnight on the 7th. YouTube management, as well as other management policies, is determined by the label. However, we believe that those policies are part of the process of Seventeen seeing their results after their efforts, and the fans becoming happier. From now on, we will continue to do our best to understand the fans and the artist, and bring a better result. We thank Seventeen and the fans, and ask you to show big support for Seventeen. Thank you."

Are you happy with how the situation turned out?

FYI this is just my opinion, I didn’t think merging to one channel was a bad thing. As LOVE and a Carat I thought the merge would be a good move because 1. They are all in fact artists from Pledis 2. It makes finding other artists easier (I could be searching up a song Nu’est and then see a Seventesn MV and click on it) 3. Other big companies do the same thing (example being: SMtown and Starshiptv). No one said anything or protested when Nu’est W MV was uploaded to Pledis Channel, we watched the MV as if it was from Nu’ests Channel. It was only the Carats who flipped out and acted like Pledis only cared about themselves and not Seventeen (which is not true, they do care about thier artists) and protested by boycotting and flagging the Seventeen MV. Which by the way, was still accesable through Seventeen’s channel page, so It wasn’t like you couldn’t see it when you search Seventeen. Pledis does care about thier artists, they frequently listen to what fans want, thier artists are genuinely happy and the Pledis family as a whole are very close to one another. Pledis not very good at managing thier artists which has always been thier downfall but they have gotten better (still a work I progress). They made the move to merge channels in an attempt to help ALL thier artists not to hurt Seventeen. But apparently some Carats didn’t see it that way. Whelp Guess that’s down the drain. Congrats Carats, you won :)

Agree, I also thought it was a good move to merge all their channels and I finally thought Pledis was putting the pieces in place to set themselves up to be a bigger player in the music market, it just made sense, but it seems some carats couldn't see past their own selfish desires that what's good for Pledis is also good for Seventeen because it's a symbiotic relationship, grow Pledis and then Pledis can invest more into Seventeen spreading the word helping to grow Seventeen which then again helps Pledis, basic business 101.


The one point I disagree with is that Pledis is not very good at managing their artists, unfortunately it has become a meme and thus set in everyone's minds and repeated to new kpop followers who in turn spread it further, at this point there's nothing Pledis can do good that won't be criticised with this label.

For me I think Pledis is actually good at managing it's artists and the reason I say this by using context and that is for it's "size" Pledis has managed to stay in the ring with much larger companies since it's founding and if you compare it to companies of the same size or a little bigger you'll find it performs very well.

Is it perfect? no, has it made mistakes? sure it has, but nothing malicious and in the last couple of years Pledis has almost doubled it's workforce establishing a more professional social media presence and opened outlets in Japan under Pledis Japan and XCSS in China to fully take charge of it's promotions in those respective countries.

Pledis is getting better at promoting and is still inproving which is a good thing in my mind.

Congrats Carats. Pledis listened to your boycott mess. Because of this mess the other artists under Pledis Entertainment and their fans have to suffer. Thank you for all the dislikes you left on AS/OC's MVs, NU'EST W's Help Me mv, Han Dongeun's MVs and Pristin's MVs. Dont let me start on boycott comments you left on other artists mvs.


Now, Pledis re-uploaded NU'EST W's MV on their channel. All thanks to carats /s.


When will you do your job properly? Where is Pristin? Where is your best selling digital group After School and Han Dong Geun? When will you stop ruining NU'EST? Me asking these questions to braindead company everyday.


Afterschool sweetie why did you put Pledis Entertainment on the map? AS members why didn't you audition in other companies?

"From now on, we will continue to do our best to understand the fans and the artist, and bring a better result" Yes. Now please understand the fans and the artist by giving us a PRISTIN comeback with or without Kyla.
