The second season of 'Highschool Rapper' has had some pretty talented individuals appearing on the show.

Among them, Bang JaeMin, was one rapper who caught the attention of South Korea with not just his rapping skills but also his attractive appearance as well.

The 18 Year Old South Korean Rapper Who Turned Down SM and YG

Twitter

The South Korean rapper revealed during an interview with news agency Insight, that he was offered a contract by YG Entertainment before he appeared on Highschool Rapper. And after appearing on the show, SM Entertainment's casting agent approached the young rapper as well with a contract as well.

While most young boys and girls who dream of becoming a K-Pop idol would flip over in excitement in the scenario, Bang JaeMin turned down both offers. When asked why he did what he did, he replied saying 'I want to be an artist, not an idol, and make the music I want to make."

Now, of course, this is where the word 'artist' is somewhat difficult to define in today's music industry but the young rapper clearly has his own vision. While he was unable to emerge as victorious during the first season of Highschool Rapper, he just might end up with a different outcome for season two if he maintains focus and has a little bit of luck on his side as well.

I would have done the same thing he had done because not everyone wants the same or has the same thing in mind and who knows, he might most likely make it and form it the way he wants to form it. Hopefully nothing bad go's towards his head like how Bruno Mars turned out, first he started with nice music now it's just about sex and drugs, that's all bad. Not saying Bruno Mars is is bad but it's just the way he turned out to be, anyway it's good that he chose this path because he will get… Read more »

I hope he knows he could've still made his own music in those companies especially YG. Unless he wants his own company.

True, he could have but if he joined YG he would be trapped in the dungeon so it's good he denied them~

I have no problem with him going his own way and doing his music but i do stand by what i said about it being pretentious to tar Idols as not being artistes...writing your own music and doing your own thing ISN'T the definition of an artiste
"a professional entertainer, especially a singer or dancer." thats the definition and if someone is using it in any other it IS pretentious

Truth of the matter is they arent, some idols that are actually talented have to fight for that title, Fact is they dont get to choose the music they want and he made his choice based on that.
