    I actually see alot of fans get angry when someone calls Hyukoh YG artists since they are from a sub-label
    Zion t is from the black label but he is still consider a YG artist and his stuff gets posted on yg ent page

    Btw Hyukoh performed in Mcountdown and MAMA 2017 eventhough Yg has beef with mnet and yg artists don't go to mnet's stuff

    idk.But if they are then yg truely has best music in big3.Black skirts have so many masterpieces

    I still think they're YG artists
    found this on Wiki
    "HIGHGRND (read as "high ground") is an independent sub-label headed by Epik High's Tablo.[68] Announced in March 2015, the label was set up by Yang Hyun-suk under the YG Entertainment umbrella as part of a long-term goal to reach out to the Korean indie and alternative scene. On June 21, 2015, Tablo introduced the band Hyukoh via Instagram as the label's first official artist"

    so basically, their boss's boss is YG. so hyukoh still under YG

    I do think they are YG artists. They just aren’t in the same type of public eye that those signed directly under YG where a-z needs to be run by YG before anything can happen.

    They're affiliated to YG so I consider them YG artists.

    I never thought of them as YG artists because they are High Grnd artists but I know people that do...

    Shrugs I guess they are if it fits a narrative and they aren’t if it doesn’t.

    Im like you, i dont considered them yg artist either just as highgrnd, i mean their are alot of labels that have sub labels, minzy is under music works but its a sub label under cje&m music but promotes under music works, thats how i see highgrnd artist, highgrd is a sublabel under yg but promote under highgrnd.

    It's their own label just for them and no other group. Label SJ. Because they had a lot of members I guess this was to manage them easier.

    Yes. In 2015, they get their own label under SM called Label SJ. It gives them a lot more freedom on the creative side and control on their own activities. For the last album, they basically do everything themselves.
