Mainly in relation to YG and YGE. So I remember a little bit about Lee Soo Man’s scandals over the years but I can’t recall it all, I’m hoping some people on here will know. I remember years and years ago there being corruption charges against him and he was wanted by Interpol for some time. He came back and was found guilty but was later pardoned. In just a quick google search I’ve seen other accusations of fraud, embezzlement and tax evasion. Also I think there was a lot of anger over SM ‘slave contracts’. Everyone knows the situation at YGE right now. The recent scandals have affected not just the business and those directly involved but all other artists at YGE. Who knows how long this will last. Some have been very quick to say this is the end of YGE altogether. So my questions are: Were any of LSM’s scandals as widely publicised and talked about as YG ones? Did LSM scandals strike a blow to SME like YG scandals have crushed YGE? Were SM artists affected by the image of their company? SM seem to be doing alright now (correct me if I’m wrong), do you think in 5-10 years YG will have recovered and this will all be a barely remembered nightmare? Bonus question (and almost totally unrelated apart from in my sleep deprived mind): Is JYP actually in a cult?!
