Bolbbalgan4, Kikwang, GWSN, ALi, & more strongly deny chart manipulation accusations

AKP STAFF

On April 8, during a national parliament elections press conference, one representative of the People's Party of Korea accused one market agency of manipulating music chart rankings through illegal means. 

During this accusation, the People's Party rep claimed that artists such as Go Seung Hyung, GWSN, BADKIZ, Bolbbalgan4, Song Haye, Young Tak, Yoyomi, Sohyang, ALi, and Highlight's Kikwang were involved in music chart manipulations, stating, "While looking into the matter of unfair music chart manipulations currently causing controversy online, we learned that an 'under-marketing' agency named 'Creativer' used illegal means to hack into other peoples' accounts, manipulating chart rankings." 

Shortly after the accusations made headlines, representatives of artists including Bolbbalgan4, Highlight's Kikwang, Yoyomi, GWSN, Song Ha Ye, Young Tak, and more strongly denied the claims as false. A representative from Bolbbalgan4's label commented, "We have never manipulated chart rankings whatsoever. We have never heard of a company called 'Creativer'. We will be taking legal action against false rumors and defamation of character which go out of hand."

Seriously? Has this man not walked past any store in Korea in the past five years? Bol4 has been playing from loudspeakers constantly since they debuted. Coffeeshops, make up stores, fast food restaurants, phone shops...literally everywhere you will hear them. You don't get to that level of saturation on chart manipulation. And why would KiKwang need to manipulate? He's a popular idol from a very popular band with enough fans to sell out stadiums...I don't know much about the others, to be fair, but really...Bol4?

this is totally discrediting legitimate chart manipulation claims. It's like he's trying to misdirect attention. And so close to the election, whoever this person is is trying to pander to voters
