    YG holds a crucial aspect of their career.

    [​IMG]

    Stock market analysts are busy predicting the potential of entertainment agencies in 2020, and YG Entertainment‘s predicted value weighs extremely high on whether the BIGBANG members will renew their contracts.

    If BIGBANG promotes, BIGBANG’s profits are predicted to be 30 billion won (~$25 million USD). If not, they will likely reach 10 billion won (~$8 million USD).

    — Yuanta Securities Korea Co. Ltd

    [YG Entertainment] received lower targets in light of uncertainties regarding BIGBANG’s contract renewals.

    — Hanhwa Investments & Securities Ltd

    Whether or not BIGBANG resigns with [YG] is the biggest variable for our estimate.

    — Mirae Asset Daewoo


    Market analysts predict G-Dragon and Taeyang will most likely renew their contract with YG because of the trademarks on their stage names.

    [​IMG]


    YG Entertainment currently holds the Korean copyrights to “G-DRAGON” in both Korean and English. They had filed for the copyrights back in 2003, years before BIGBANG’s debut in 2006.

    In 2015, YG filed for the copyrights of “TAEYANG” and “GD X TAEYANG”. They were unable to obtain the copyrights for “Taeyang” in Korean because it is a proper noun meaning the sun.

    If G-Dragon and Taeyang decide to leave YG Entertainment, they will not be able to promote with their stage name without the consent and permission from YG Entertainment. G-Dragon will most likely be unable to use even “GD” as it is affiliated with “G-DRAGON” as copyright.


    Analysts believe their stage names are a crucial part of their careers as both artists have promoted solely as G-Dragon and Taeyang since their debut. Their birth names are have rarely been utilized in the past 13 years.

    Reports also pointed out precedents of previous groups that had also faced similar difficulties. H.O.T, a group that disbanded back in 2001, still face difficulties promoting by their name even today as SM Entertainment holds the rights to their group name. When the members of BEAST left Cube Entertainment, they had to change their group name entirely to HIGHLIGHT after losing their lawsuit.


    Analysts believe G-Dragon and Taeyang will most likely renew with YG Entertainment since the company holds the upper hand with their copyrights.

    If there is zero chance of all of BIGBANG moving to another agency, G-Dragon and Taeyang will most likely promote as soloists if they don’t renew their contracts.

    As such, YG Entertainment has the advantage of getting them to renew since they hold the copyrights.

    G-Dragon and Taeyang will lose rights to their names if they don't renew with YG

    Article: Fate determined by the contract renewal... G-Dragon and Taeyang will not be able to use their names if they do not renew with YG

    Source: Herald Pop via Nate

    1. [+1,313, -28] They can just promote under the names Kwon Jiyong and Dong Youngbae~

    2. [+1,280, -57] Thug move by YG ㅋㅋㅋㅋ SM also had it so that Shinhwa couldn't use their name once they left so Shinhwa still has to pay them even to sing their own songs (that they themselves composed) ㅋㅋㅋ all big agencies are thugs

    3. [+1,062, -45] I don't know about G-Dragon but I'm sure Taeyang can leave YG and promote as Dong Youngbae and still maintain the same level of popularity. Let's get out of there, Youngbae-ya~ It seems like all of the talented artists without scandal are leaving YG these days!

    4. [+65, -0] It'd be nice if they could use their stage names but aren't they at the point now where they can just switch back to their real names and still be recognized ㅋㅋㅋ

    5. [+53, -1] Kwon Jiyong's real name is just as famous so

    6. [+43, -4] He can just use 'GD' then

    7. [+40, -1] These guys are idols where their names don't matter ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ who wouldn't know their real names by now? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

    8. [+35, -1] I can see people not knowing that Taeyang's real name is Youngbae but most people know that GD is Kwon Jiyong ㅋㅋㅋㅋ even TV shows sometimes just call him Jiyong

    9. [+31, -2] That's fine, they don't need those names. Everyone knows his name is Kwon Jiyong ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

    10. [+22, -0] I'm sure this article was released at all because there are signs that the two are planning to leave

    11. [+22, -1] Taeyang-ah, just leave by yourself, it's over for them

    12. [+19, -0] They're both at the level where anyone would know who they are if they just used their real names ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

    What kind of analyst is that if they think stage name alone is gonna keep top artists in a company
    The names G-DRAGON and TAEYANG do not worth a cent if they're not carried by the artists. It sucks but it's not gonna stop anyone who is determined to leave. They can name themselves P-DRAGON and DAEYANG and still be as popular.

    More likely reasons for them to resign with company are:
    • They want to keep the group even with one member left
    • YG has something in their hands (all agency do have some dirt on their artists)
    • They still have faith in the company

    You don't know much about YG, do you?
    On the other hand...The Big Bang members are men and YGE would have been nothing without them so who knows...

    Topic: I want them to leave this rotten company.
    Let YGE lose their status as a Big 3 company and then let them crumble more and more.
    Companies that treat their female idols and fans like this should disappear forever.

    YGE is a sh*tty company, but not to that level were they would block their Artist from promoting with their known stage name or promote at all.
    YG is not SM. They never did that to any Artist, they didn't do that to Gummy and they didn't do that with Se7en and now recently with CL either.

    If GD and Taeyang leave they can take their names with them, if it ain't that easy, they got a lot money to buy the copyrights, lol GD holds stocks in YG.

    These people don't sound that professional tho, a stage name never kept people from not leaving the company lol.

    YG needs BB more than BB needs YG, they have the advantage. Maybe they will make a label under YG?

    Tbh. Everyone who left YG has been perfectly fine so far.

    Leaving a big 3 company isn’t the end all be all it used to be

    Park bom promoted under her real name, I don't think they could do anything about it even if the wanted to.

    I think it’s her own decision tho..
    I doubt YG had to do anything with it.

    What I'm saying is that since promoted under her real name since her debut under YG, even if YG wanted too, they cant legally have copyrights to it since it's her legal name. The most the could do is stop her from stylizing (if she did) the unique way she had when she was still in YG. A good example of this is Hyuna, when she left CUBE, she didnt have to change her stage name because it's her legal name yet Edawn and to change his stage name to Dawn and Beast had to change theirs to Highlight

    Why is this "analyst" talking like any of the BB members are dependent on YG? Lmao. It's the other way around...

    like several people have pointed out that YGE holds copyrights to several former artists stage names as well - they all left amicably and still use those stage names without any problems. YGE has never been a company that blacklists (or causes problems to) artists for leaving when they want. This reason (trademark) is not a predictor of anything.

    What I mean is..
    It looks like YG doesn’t copyright his ex artists.. look at all his ex artists retaining their stage names.

    It’s Bom’s decision to use her birth name not because YG is trying to copyright it.

    If YG wanted to copyright Bom's name, they cant because they legally cant do that. That's she'll never have this problem. Just because YG hasnt stopped previous artists from using their stage names doesnt mean they can't do it. If YG decided that CL, Se7en, Gummy and Minzy couldnt use their stages names anymore, they can call in that copyright since it's within their legal right since they own the names. However that cant do this to Bom because her stage name is her legal name.
