Why K-Netizens Are Criticizing ‘YG Treasure Box’
After the kicking off of the first episode of ‘YG Treasure Box’ on November 16th, K-netizens have once again shaking their heads at YG Entertainment.
While we’d like to say that they should at least give him credit for trying, there are a few points that K-netizens have brought up to criticize Yang HyunSuk, the entertainment agency’s CEO.
Below are the reasons.
YG Doesn’t Even Seem To Understand How They Got Their Nickname ‘Treasure Box’
The reason why YG Entertainment was nicknamed as a treasure box as netizens put it, is because the agency has so many artists and idol groups who have so much potential and promising futures. And netizens labeled the agency as a treasure box for this very reason since YG usually seems to be keeping them under their wings but not release any music for them, hence the label ‘treasure box’. As the nickname was based off of this idea, YG Entertainment has only shown trainees whom the public has never even heard of. Netizens criticized and laughed over the show by stating
“We said treasure box because of all the talented idols and artists you have in your agency. Not because you have a bunch of trainees whom the public have never even heard of. Who asked for another survival program with trainees of all the idols in your agency? You guys are really lost on the understanding of why you guys are called treasure box.”
Yang HyunSuk Keeps Saying He Will Be Taking Visuals In To Criteria. Does That Mean..He Didn’t Before?
Many netizens and fans have spoken about this particular point very loudly recently. They take it as a diss to the idols who have debuted under YG in the past as it implies that none of them are worth looking at for how they look. People seem to be aggravated every time they see Yang HyunSuk on TV talking about visuals and how he will start taking them into account when selecting debuting members.
Do you agree with K-netizens?
