YG Treasure Box Facebook

On November 16th, YG's new survival program "YG Treasure Box" was aired on V-Live and fans could also watch the episode on YouTube too.

Through its first episode, viewers were able to see how the trainees practice day to day and also get to learn more about how the casting system works.

Another moment which caused many to be alarmed is definitely the part when the casting staff revealed how much it costs for YG to invest in one trainee in a year.

It turns out that it costs at least 100 million won for one trainee in a year!

The amount includes the basic meals, transportation, English and Japanese lessons, acting classes, discussion classes and also health training.

With that being said, the longer one trainee trains, the more it costs YG to invest in them.

This is why they aren't allowed to have a life, untill the label gets their investment back. This is why they can slave them out...if I could not reach fame in the entertainment industry on my own without all of this, then I'd just spend 300k on a college education, be a doctor, lawyer or something that earns me a top salary...and call it a day.

Technically if they don’t debut and the contract expires, they will have to pay the company back.
