More students boycott YG artists at their campus festivals due to the Burning Sun scandal


YG Entertainment artists are being boycotted due to the Burning Sun scandal.

FollowingMyongji University that opposed iKON's appearance at their campus festival, more institutes are joining the boycott. 

On May 20, Hanyang University students encouraged their student government to cancel WINNER's attendance to their upcoming campus festival, stating, "YG is the company Seungri was under... We oppose our tuition being used for YG, the hotbed of crime."

Hanyang University has not yet responded to the opposition. Meanwhile, the Myongji University student government officially apologized for lacking caution and emphasized they did not intend to support the controversial agency. iKON ultimately performed as scheduled on May 15.

I’m partial. On one hand, I know the boys worked hard and have nothing to do with another artist’s scandal just because they were under the same label, hence shouldn’t face the backlash. However, on the other hand, I don’t want to keep supporting YG. As long as his business thrives and he can command the level of power and influence as he does now, all these crimes and injustice will continue. Can no longer turn a blind eye to this.

Say NO:---> Winner got 0 relations to SB scandal but suffer from boycott simply due to association.

Say YES:---> YG earns almost 45% of the profits from these events and hence boycott sounds acceptable.

It is not fully correct to choose one and but people shouldn't turn a blind eye on these factors too.
