Amid Allegations Of Sexual Favors By YG Entertainment head Yang Hyun-Suk, a YG Music Boycott Is Taking Place.
There will be no YG artists' songs in the community.
Mnet Gallery on 'DC Inside,' one of South Korea's biggest online communities has announced that they will not curate songs from YG Entertainment. They wrote on the 27th, "We now declare that we are boycotting all songs from YG Entertainment."
They continued, "So many incidents have occurred in the entertainment industry since the Burning Sun scandal occurred in January, and the side has always been followed by YG Entertainment's name. We can't help but think that being involved in such inappropriate activities is the root of losing credibility among fans at entertainment agencies, which should place importance on social value realization and moral integrity."

In the official announcement, they wrote, "We have determined that we will not accept or consume all the music produced by YG Entertainment from now on as we have determined that it has not been well equipped to lead the global K-pop culture."
