    i remember correctly bigbang was not a mysterious group
    they did a lot of variety shows
    they didn't care about their image and did that cringy but somewhat awesome lollipop song
    heck even daesung was a fixed member as dumb and dumber sibling with yoo jae suk in family outing (equals running man in that time) and brought his members along in some episodes

    so why do you think YG change his company image now and keeping their groups mysterious by not sending them to a lot of shows?

    YG is probably going to be kicked out of the Big 3 by the end of this year. BigHit is already topping all of the companies, and YG (out of the current Top 3) has the lowest income. Because of him not promoting, he's going to make his company fail. His golden era was a while ago

    Big hit needs more than BTS to become part of the big 3. The big 3 has MULTIPLE successful groups

    I agree, however, sales-wise YG is really lacking compared to the other companies

    facts

    locking your groups up has momentary success (people rush buying a groups’ releases bc it’s the last thing they’re going to get for a year) but eventually people get tired of waiting games and move on to groups that do more than post on instagram during their hiatus. this gap between album releases wouldn’t be so bad if they were filled with variety shows and stuff but they’re not so YG is sabotaging themselves atm. sucks bc they have talent that is being wasted. anyone that signs with YG is out of their mind

    Superiority complex :

    "The superiority complex is one of the ways that a person with an inferiority complex may use as a method of escape from his difficulties. He assumes that he is superior when he is not, and this false success compensates him for the state of inferiority which he cannot bear. The normal person does not have a superiority complex, he does not even have a sense of superiority. He has the striving to be superior in the sense that we all have ambition to be successful; but so long as this striving is expressed in work it does not lead to false valuations, which are at the root of mental disease."[

    As much as I think YG deserves to drop out of the Big 3 because the management is so terrible, you can't deny that Korea eats up everything they put out, especially this year:
    Seungri's 1,2,3!
    Black Pink's DDDD
    Winner's Everyday
    Big Bang's Flower Road which wasn't even promoted
    iKON's Love Scenario

    If these songs didn't do so well, you'd have a point. But literally, everything they came out with has become a hit in Korea and internationally.

    Oops. Too late. But actually, album sales raise popularity, and gain money for the company. I'm aware SM didn't do as well as YG last year, but we know SM isn't going down any times soon, due to the money from previous years and 2018

    Yeah, they're songs are all popular. They have every right to be. However, his groups will lose popularity if he continues with this "dungeon", and over time will be taking over.

    do you even know the amount of backlash and controversy his senior artists brought to the company? daraxgd stans, the daesung car crash, bom's mental health/drug history, bom's excessive plastic surgery, gdragon's mariujana scandal, gdragon's heartbreaker plagarism, cl's weight, top's overdose, top's trainee scandal etc etc etc. these are just the ones off the top of my head but there are so many more. the gd x dara x cl shipping thing was/still is a major issue that fans go to extreme lengths to prove that gd has dated one of them.

    to avoid all of this happening YG ent/management team had to change the rules for their newer artists. opposite sex groups are not allowed to interact openly (e.g. ikon with blackpink or winner with blackpink) to avoid the gd/cl/dara mess. they are also unable to get a driving license to avoid a repeated occurrence of the daesung tragedy. and the less shows their artists attend, the less likely a controversy will emerge from something they have said. unfortunately, YG has become more restricted like the other entertainment groups. and as a consequence of that, the unique "yg vibe/freedom" factor has been ruined for all their artists to come.

    YG have a lot more than just singers under them. They had actors, models, and other subsidiaries, etc. It really takes a lot more to topped the Big3. Their overall income is lower, because of their various investments (one of it is that one big fucken giant radio building or something). I don't like their mismanagement, but it really takes a lot more to overcome them.

    how is it fair to compare a company that has the most irregular comebacks with companies that are giving their artists a comeback every 3 months... their legacy still stands whether you like it or not. a group/company can have strong sales but make no lasting impact on the industry
