Yoo Byung Jae, an active entertainer signed under YG Entertainment, has been well-known in the past for his open and witty ways of satirizing society's 'problematic issues', including those of his own label. In the past, he has gone so far as to even make remarks about YG Entertainment being a "pharmacy", at his very own stand-up comedy show back in April of last year.
Because he had spoken up about such issues in the past, netizens have begun to wonder why the entertainer has suddenly stepped away from his social position as a commentator against YG. Some have left comments on his Instagram, with accusations that he may be purposefully remaining silent.
"Excuse me, Mr. Byung Jae..all those satirical remarks and gag..you used to do them so well..about 'Burning Sun'..is there a reason why you are keeping your mouth shut? Also, it was real hell on earth these days because of the fine dust environmental issue...and even about this you haven't even made a single comment on it, let alone a satire..do you always keep things to yourself when you feel like those people are on the same side as you?"
"Hyung, why aren't you satirizing these YG hot topics these days?"
"A professional satirist who is only silent when things are disadvantageous LOL"
However, some are also defending Yoo Byung Jae, commenting that this may cause secondary offense from accusations without grounds.
