Tiger JK reveals a shocking "sajaegi" tactic while sharing his experience with "sajaegi" offer

AKP STAFF

Tiger JK talked about his personal experience with "sajaegi" offers on January 4th episode of SBS' 'Unanswered Questions'. "Sajaegi" or chart manipulation became a huge topic in late 2019. 

In the interview, he expressed, "I believe there is a "sajaegi". The idea itself wasn't too shocking because we have been hearing about this for a while. But the offer we received was very shocking. They said they could make us #1 for about 100 million KRW (about USD $85,767). What really had me was one of the tactics called "pushing", which is literally pushing your rival's rankings down on the charts. For instance, let's say your rival is Yoon Mi Rae. They will 'push' three other songs that are similar genres to her new release to drop her song's rankings on the charts."

He continued, "They approached us saying me and Yoon Mi Rae have only topped charts for people in their 30s. They said people in their 30s are worthless in terms of spending power, so we would have to boost our presence among teenagers and people in their 20s to do better." 

What do you think?

Typical backwards Korean ideology. They think 30 and up is old now they're worthless in spending power! Where TF do they think teens and most 20 something's are getting the money from! Unless all those under 30 are from wealthy families or college graduates with a big paying job all the money comes from parents or people in the work force with disposable income.

it good that Tiger JK who is a well respected senior artiste, cum CEO now, to come forward to speak about it. as his words will carry more weight than someone whom the public have heard little about.

Because most Agency CEO are afraid to go on TV about it even if they dont do it, because ppl might suspect him or doing it if his artistes song come to #1.

Another CEO whom i know dont condone such practise and has spoken in public about it is JYP himself.

he has encountered times when his own song dont do well, he could have the ability to pay to get others to push it to #1, but he didn't.
