YG receives backlash for Supearls contract terminations


Article: [Exclusive] YG Yang Hyun Suk "There is no more Supearls" Contract termination confirmed

Source: OSEN via Nate

1. [+558, -111] SM was criticized for not taking in any trainee in season one but now I see that it was the better choice. Out of all the agencies in Korea, these three are the most overflowing with trainees and the market is already oversaturated with new rookie debuts. The real criticism should've been directed at the companies that did take in trainees when they really didn't need to.
At least when the show was over, the contestants that weren't chosen got to join another agency while the spotlight was still on them. How unfair is it that YG took Supearls when they were the most popular with the public, hid them away, and then canceled their contracts now? What do they expect them to do?
If K-Pop Star expects longevity, the three companies need to give freedom to the contestants to choose as they please. These auditions only look for pearls or the cream of the crop when they should be looking for those talents in their individual company auditions, NOT on an audition show. Their greed is what has led to this situation

2. [+662, -221] How irresponsible and selfish of them, shouldn't have even contracted the girls in the first place

3. [+618, -207] Looks like now that Lee Hi is doing well, he doesn't give a crap about the others and is just cutting them off

4. [+149, -23] DIdn't we all expect this? Lee Hi succeeded as a solo, Park Ji Min's with JYP, and Lee Michelle already has rumors of discord. What can the two do? No choice but to disband.

5. [+138, -21] From now on, YG better not dare to call themselves a family. People are always saying SM's the best, or how JYP only considers himself the best, but there has not been one person in SM that they threw away themselves other than the kids that walked out with their own two feet. They always made sure to release an album for Trax no matter how poorly they did. YG should've been like K-Pop Star and chose no one if they weren't confident enough to do their best for them. Or at least be like JYP and put out an album no matter whether the album fails or succeeds. Do they think this is some kind of joke that they can play with the future of children? They are basically throwing away a piece of gum that they chewed up.

Article: YG "Aside from Lee Hi, all of Supearls have had their contracts terminated"

Source: Star News via Nate

1. [+347, -48] He shouldn't have taken them in the first place if this is what he was going to do. He should've let them go as soon as possible the longer he delayed their debut. I hope another company picks them up fast.

2. [+382, -93] Contract termination? More like kicking them to the curb. He acts as if he's doing them such a big favor by letting them go without any clauses, but does he think we're idiots???

3. [+296, -91] Better than keeping them under a slave contract without any hope, I suppose

4. [+68, -18] Terminating their contracts isn't the issue here. Shouldn't YG be compensating the girls for tying them down and not debuting them? Had it not been for YG, they could've already debuted with another company now. Season one of the show is already long over and the public is about to forget them so what does he expect them to do by just throwing them out like this? So unbelievably irresponsible

  3. I wonder how the people that bashed SM for only focusing on the looks and not take anyone feel. hahahahaha

  4. JYP probably Asked YG to drop them so he can pick them up and remake the original SuPearls with park ji min. Or not. Lol.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Problem was when he realized that despite them being "inspiration" they were never going to surpass SNSD he had to change tactics. AKA YG snsd.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Because YG sits there talking about himself and his company and how close they are. If any company is fake, it's YG. They milk the family title and video tape to show people like "LoOK HoW CloSe wE aRe!!!" When SM artists are close and so are JYP yet they don't whore it around like YG does. His whole persona is a con, and it's really sad people are buying into it so easily. All of it is an image... At least with SM or JYP they don't pretend to be amazing companies.

    ReplyDelete
  7. The thing is, YG isn't handling PSY success, Scooter Braun is doing EVERYTHING. YG is just collecting the paycheck and instead of using it to give some bomb ass comebacks he's just wasting his time away giving out interviews about how amazing YG is and all the things he does blah blah blah

  8. How can people hate this awesome, unique company?

  11. Annnnd this shows why I never understood "YG FAMILY YG FAMILYY IS THE BEST OMFG!1" All I ever see is them doing collabs with each other on stages. Yeahhh I don't call that a family.

    Oh i see. YG discuss with you about 'copying black peoples' ? huh.

    well.. you're only good at commenting hateful comments against YG. You piece of shit. Yes! I'm very dispointed that YG actually did this crap But this ain't gonna change us. We love YG fam. You better cut it out! commenting about Yg stans and all. You probably haven't loved someone with all your heart.

  14. What are they going to say? Lee Michelle left because we fucking suck? If you really believe everything a company says you should stop being naive. They are not going to openly admit a dispute that ended with one girl leaving.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yeah but YG does it publicly.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Bleh. For idoits like you unique makes copying others.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Meanwhile, SM still lets Trax release albums, Zhang LiYin may be coming back soon, and Ji-Min had an awesome comeback OST last year even though two of those artists dont do that well and Ji-Min had been middling for years.


    Who is the evil company again?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Obviously unique means copying other people to you because everything YG does is a rip off.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh yes! You're an asshole ;)

  20. Park Ji Min shouldn't go to JYP, if she in JYP & be a solo singer...but not succesful as Baek Ayeon or Hayi, i still can accept. But debut as a duo solo as 15& & not succesful..... you should stick as Su-Pearls if you want to be in a group >_<


    i think michelle is a rebel child, even in kpop star the judges keep scolding her for not take care well of her throat. p/s: my rebel is not in bad person meaning...

    Haters ain't got shit on YG.

  27. I think your "year 2006" is wrong because that time Sment was busy planning SNSD debut and maybe even Shinee's debut. Also Sment first official youtube channel was created in 2009 and as far as I know none of the current EXO members were even SMent as trainees in 2006

  28. I'm not the one telling people they are pieces of shit for talking about my favorite company, or talking about their personal life. It's obvious you're too invested and think YG is paying your bills or something.. but You're a big fucking asshole. Just so you know.

  31. I agree, the only two reasons BB had those comebacks is that they have a big fanbase and they have GD producing and moving BB along the way.

  32. i agree. it just sucks that they made the girls wait a year before letting them go. all that time was a waste. at least ji min got to put out a single and cover song project with jyp...that's better than the rest of the supearls got

  38. My favorite thing about articles like this is the YG stans come out talking about how YG is not the perfect company, or how he's a business man and don't take the "family" title so literally when they are always boasting about how great YG is, how much of a family YG is, how YG doesn't care about the money, yet when he fucks up you guys want to amend it. STFU.

  40. "SM members who left because they were treated like shit"
    I once swore I won't believe these words anymore. How many ex-SM left (and complained) and how many are still there satisfied. If they were treated like shit, you won't see the majority staying. Kids still audition in SM! If it is a shitty company they won't, at least their parents won't let them. Both Fly To The Sky & SHINHWA left for their own good, and they never bad-talked SM. They always (specially SHINHWA) say they are grateful to SM.

  78. That doesn't make me a 'YG hater' just that my opinion doesn't match yours, i don't like arrogant and irrational YG stans, not the company itself which i said many times.

    You showed your ignorance a YG stan again, i wasn't the one who tracked that person to this site and insulted him/her yet you are posing to comfort him/her like he is one who didn't started this in the first place.

    You were the one that was using hateful words. Is it natural for YG stans constantly victimize themselves? I swear you guys are rude to other people then say it's that persons fault.

    I'm not being rude at all. Maybe that's the probably with YG stans, they can't tell the difference between criticism and being rude. Being rude is telling someone they are a piece of shit and calling them a jerk and talking about previous relationships you know nothing about because they have an opinion different from yours. Criticizing is pointing out how wrong it is for other YG stans to be dismissing your behavior while attacking the person you attacked. Learn the difference. And please, I don't go calling people pieces of shit or jerks, or ugly because they don't like the same things as me or have a negative opinion about them so don't try to act like its everyday okay behavior. Maybe for a middle schooler. For a fandom that is supposed to not "give a fuck" about what other people say you guys sure get riled up over opinions.

    You're one that proved my point... And my eyes are open, that's why I see all the shit that happens. I was in the YG fandom for a good 2 years. Yours obviously aren't because you are blinded by favoritism. How can you understand the storm when you are in the center of it? You can't. So I don't expect your or any other YG stan to understand. So as you kindly advised your friend not waste her time, I'll advise you to do the same.

    But what you guys did? Replying me back with hateful words and so did i. My hateful words will keep on coming until you guys stop :)

  99. Then I guess you're wayyy to sensitive. "So as you kindly advised your friend not waste her time, I'll advise you to do the same." The reason that I didn't ignore you, was because you dedicated your username to me, but nevermind this will be my last comment to you then. ps: If I'm "blinded by the favoritism" then you're blinded by the hate.

    I'm not being rude with you, I'm being honest. "CRITICIZING" do you know the definition? I did not say you're a piece of shit, I did not call you a jerk, I did not say you were ugly I said you''re rude. Those are not hateful words, what you said is hateful. Learn to accept responsibility for your actions and stop blaming other people.

    Everyone who doesn't think other people calling other people pieces of shit, is sensitive right? Of course. What I said was correct, you don't understand. You will never understand because you are one of them, and you act the way they do and accept it for what it is. If you think me calling out YG stans for their shit is hate, it says a lot about you and well, the fandom because that's not hate. You guys should really learn what hate is, its definitely not criticizing someone or having an opinion.

  108. is anyone even surprised at this!??? sure Michelle is talented but she lacks the appeal for the korean market, while the other two girls had average but decent vocals! it was expected from the moment news came out about Lee Hi's solo debut

    ReplyDelete
  109. TBH Maybe it just didn't work out? I don't think Lee Hi was meant to debut as a solo in the first place. YGE stopped talking about Su:Pearls looong before Lee Hi's debut and there were already tons of rumours flying around that Su:Pearls just wasn't working out. So, I'm really not surprised by this news. People need to stop acting like they know the whole situation LOL.
    YG is VERY unorganized tho. And they shouldn't have taken those trainees in in the first place. After all, they were already training a new girl group. I was hoping they were gonna drop the new girl group and debut Su:Pearls instead but LOL seems like the opposite has happened. But this is not a surprise with YG. Quite a few trainees come and go because debuting under YGE is the longest. I'm surprised they debuted Lee Hi so fast since most trainees train for years before a possibility of debut. This is the big down side of signing under YG. Maybe Su:Pearls wasn't down for that.

    ReplyDelete
  110. the one who do the real training are the company staff not BoA. BoA and the other judges only spend 1-2 days with the trainees. the first day would be at the beginning of the week, while the last would be the day before their performance. this applies to all 3 judges and not just BoA. the judges do pick the songs, the concept, and the choose the choreo (if its a dance song). the real training is done by the vocal coaches, dance trainers, and stylists of each company..

    ReplyDelete
  111. LOL jumping to conclusions. There are a lot of things that could have happened. Essentially, "SNSD by YG" was in the works way before Su:Pearls. YGE probably had a lot more lined up for them and they did train longer. Talent or looks aren't the only thing to consider while making a group.

  112. Sad that TRAX is now on hiatus because of military duties. But when 3(?) years past they will have another album and while Gummy and Seven still wait for YG to remember them.

  114. And the morale is not to tease when you're not ready. Teasing is dangerous, YGE!

    ReplyDelete
  115. Well, that's the way YG likes to present his company. What exactly is wrong with that? It makes the fans get along better and creates a reasonable support system for his new or less popular artists. YG wanted to create a brand with loyal consumers not just an entertainment company. I don't think it's fair to say all of it is an image but he does capitalize on the bonds his artists share.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Knew this was coming from ever since they announced LeeHi's solo and Michelle's rumor.


    Never get your hopes with anything related to YG. I love their groups, but promises are never kept. Why even bother anymore?

    ReplyDelete
  117. I kinda think BoA is trying to make the contestants know what is to come if SM does work with but still give them a genral feel of how a company treats and handles them so that way even if SM doesn't pick anyone again they are already filled with the know how (like how to handle such and such type of style or singing) that any other company can just debut them.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I really think that YG needs to honestly think
    and plan out his artists debuts, comebacks, tours and solos more.
    Why take in girls from K-Pop star, show their
    faces to us for a year and brag about them JUST to terminate their contracts?
    Supearls could have been something YG, those girls were probably pumped seeing
    their names everywhere and having the chance to be what they dreamed to be. You
    had them featured on Scarecrow YG! How can you just dump them now? And that
    cruel thing they are doing to their newest girl group project. Showing everyone
    all the girls but telling people "Oh yeah, one of the girls we are showing you
    is going to not be in the group. We decided against her."
    =__= Still can't beleive YG said Lee Hi was
    going to be a member of Su Pearls then decided to throw away that
    plan.
    In what way is doing that ok? Then there is
    Lee Hi getting her solo album. I am sorry but Bom should get a solo album before
    her. Lee Hi is barely stable and doesn't really put emotion into her singing
    that much imho. Saying that after a debut song and giving her Bom's song that
    was made specfically for Bom that she should get a full album as well is just
    too much.
    2NE1's offical English album was promised eons
    ago and still I hear nothing of it. All that hype they made about working with
    Will.i.am and stuff and still nothing? I swear if SNSD's English album comes out
    before 2NE1's I will have a major bf. Even more so than I had when 2NE1's Korean
    comeback keeps getting pushed back because YG wants to focus on Lee
    Hi.
    YG, please just make a plan. Sit down and
    think before you tell the public things like group debuts, solos and comebacks.
    I don't see how YG stans can defend you so much with all this chaos of
    a schedule you have. Because this what your doing is too much.

    ReplyDelete
  119. It would have been a bit smarter to just never sign them, why tell the public about all your going to do with them and brag about them if your just going to push them off and work with this 'SNSD YG style' project.

    ReplyDelete
  120. TBH it's not that big of a deal. I was anticipating Su:Pearls but if it didn't work out then it didn't work out. We were not even given a reason why so I don't see the need to take olympic leaps at conclusions here. The only real butthurt people are the people who were eager to take a stab at YG in a "SEE??? YG ISN'T so PErFEcT after ALL!!KEKE NOt Real Family!!" way. Well good for you. You win. The prize is wait-for-it... nothing. Because in the end nothing is going to change. Good job.

    What a nice way to brush the big-ol-mess of the JYJ issue under the rug. And with JYP's Jay Park issue... yeah I think we are going to have to hold on that canonization of both SM and JYP.

    ReplyDelete
  124. So much for "Dear Papa YG loves all his YG family members." They aren't even delayed or kept as trainees for future debut, YG scooped them up when they were hot then he decided he doesn't need them anymore. These girls are going to have a hard time finding another agency.

    ReplyDelete
  125. "5. [+138, -21] From now on, YG better not dare to call themselves a family. People are always saying SM's the best, or how JYP only considers himself the best, but there has not been one person in SM that they threw away themselves other than the kids that walked out with their own two feet. They always made sure to release an album for Trax no matter how poorly they did. YG should've been like K-Pop Star and chose no one if they weren't confident enough to do their best for them. Or at least be like JYP and put out an album no matter whether the album fails or succeeds. Do they think this is some kind of joke that they can play with the future of children? They are basically throwing away a piece of gum that they chewed up. "



    YES. And all those YG stans that loves bragging "YG Family Family!!!" "YG Family all the way!" and "This is why I love YG. They're such a family" can go sit down because YG's management is so shitty, they act like a family who haven't bought a calendar in about 5 years.

  130. Or how the CSJH girls all have something going for them even if they're obviously not selling as a group. Lina is in dramas. Sunday in musicals. Dana in musicals and subbing as a DJ for Super Junior's radio shows. Stephanie even debuting solo. Even Isak had her Arirang gig because of SM. When Blackbeat broke up, Sanghoon and Jaewon stayed in SM and became choreographers. Now they're head choreographers and oversee the trainees, as well as having the final say in all the artists' choreographies. SM has done well to provide well for its acts even when it was painfully obvious that their groups weren't doing as well as the others. The only truly fucked over by SM is Zhang Liyin, who has literally done nothing the last few years.

  136. The reason stated 'they decided that they should break up for the benefit of each other' which could mean any sorts of complications, one being in the long run the girls couldn't work together. obviosuly more to it but it seems most people are choosing to over look this to attack YG because they are opportunistic or just very upset.

    ReplyDelete
  137. But the members of Aziatix were mostly born/raised in the states so being signed to an american label is not surprising and Asians in the hip hop scene are slowly getting acknowledged. They are a really good group.
    Considering their sucess and money and connections those two don't have anything to be pressed about.

    ReplyDelete
  138. 1) Shinwha's contract expired and they talked to LSM to let them go AND let them keep their name. They enjoyed their time at SM, heck they joke about all the pranks they did there all the time. So They weren't treated like shit or had problems with SM.

    2) JYJ? Are you a major JYJ fan because I see no reason to bring them up because they are the only past SM artists who even mentions being treated unfairly. But hey I will give you that, ohhh one bad smuge when it comes to treatment of artists when after the breakup SM was never looked at the same again and artists felt the need to stick up for their company.

    3) Fly to the Sky? Their contract expired as well and they chose to leave SM for another company. They had problems AFTER a new company picked them up.

    The fact that YG is under fire is because he bragged about this group, showed them off, told everyone how pumped he was for SuPearls, gave us names and clips of them then does this after annoucing plans for a SNSD YG.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Although debuting under a major company is going to guarantee the public knows about your group, it also means that you won't get as much attention and time put into the production of your group. Just look at what happened to EXO. SM has so many other comebacks to worry about, they had to wait this long before making a comeback album for them. Its better to debut under a smaller company that will put 100% of their efforts into making you successful.

  141. If you follow Zhang Liyin's weibo, you realise that actually she does get work to do. But sometimes the timing just isn't right and albums get passed over. Even then, SM does put her into concerts and everything. Usually if f(x) or SJ is performing anywhere in China, they try and rope her into the same concert. Most recently, she performed at Sichuan TV's 2013 New Year concert in which DBSK and f(x) performed in as well.

    FACEPALM as much as i love her ..Yoona out of all the girls is the only one who can't sing at all ! You would be surprised to see the capacity of Hyo, Soo & Yul because they can sing . They all have pretty decent voices, they can sing good enough for SM to make a Sub unit for those three only ! Like no need for them to have Jess or Sunny to sing most of the song ! Soo voice is just like Sunny's one with the lack of control ...! SO no the girls aren't the best singers in K-pop but they surely can sing and sing well !

  151. They both went in last year (lets just say October even though Jay went in Spring) so they get out late next year to be able to promote as TRAX because I don't think Jay would promote without Jung-mo even if he is released first. and they need time to write and sing and blah so.... 2015 is when we will see them again as TRAX.

    JYJ sued for unfair treatment (not the firsts to do so) and were blacklisted from the entertainment industry. That's still worse than letting trainees go without conditions and without a smear campaign.

  154. In the same interview Hangeng said he was GRATEFUL to SM because without them he wouldn't be where he is. The one's treating Hangeng like shit were racist staff, not the entire company, and he left because he couldn't take it anymore. If it wasn't for those staff members (who I'm pretty sure were fired because SJ definitely doesn't have that manager anymore, especially since he also treated the other members like shit too) then Hangeng probably wouldn't have left.

  156. Exactly what I'm saying. There are many things that could have went wrong. Maybe they didn't get along. Maybe YG felt they were not ready to debut and they didn't want to wait years for a debut. Maybe the group just didn't work together that well. Well, in any case we shouldn't jump to conclusions. And if they did have complications with YG, well isn't it good he is letting them go, then? They are free agents and their names are well-known, they could easily get another company to sign under and probably with even better conditions if the company is smaller than YGE. Yeah, they lost out on a YG debut but it happens. Things don't always work out with project groups and trainees.

  157. What is your proof they were treated unfairly ? My proof is the 60+ artists still under SM satisfied.

  158. As a YG Stan, am pretty pissed with YG as well, it's like giving false hope. But K-Netizens are pretty hypocritical as well in their comments, saying "at least be like JYP and put out an album no matter whether the album fails or succeeds." when they piratically bashed Park Ji Min. But am very very dissapointed in YG this time .Sigh

  159. Why are you so quick to believe that she was in a fight with the company though? People had the same conclusion when Wheesung left YG but in the end it BOTH sides were very clear that what they had was only a difference in their musical taste/priorities and not necessarily a "fight" / "dispute" and YG let him go without any conditions. Wheesung is still very much friends with the YG Family members.

    And no I've been in the KPOP fandom long enough to know what is a straight up BS and what is a rumor that created and believed by lowlifes in the community.

  160. LOL Come on. How long are you going to hold on to that when it's so obvious that they sued for money. Changmin and Yunho had exactly the same contract and same work schedule and I don't see them suing for unfair treatment. Those three obviously sued for money. MONEY! LOL

  161. you may find it melodrama.....every season produces k-pop stars so don't say that they can now find them an agency easily.....now the spotlight has shifted to other present k-pop contestants so it will hard for them....many factors like beauty and other are taken into consideration when an agency takes up these past names aside from talent...hardly they survive.....so just don' say they can a new agency easily....can you gaurantee it becoz you speak too casually......

  164. They can used the names and the fact that they were trained under YG. They can even use this mess as a publicity.It's been done before. If other factors are considered, well those same factors would have been considered had they not signed with YGE in the first place. A lot of trainees and project groups with less of a name and popularity have been let go by YGE and quite a few ended up just fine in great groups even. I will not be surprised if next week we hear someone has been signed somewhere else.

How can people not see how fucked up the situation is, idgi. And if you're going to tell me about how SM made them who they are, well, surprise, they get a lot of $$$ in return, they're a mega corp after all.

    I don't need any proof. Just the fact that JYJ and Hangeng both sued and won both law suits should be enough. Also SM being forced to re-design SM contracts. And even if we look back at Shinhwa's and HOT's issues with SM ent. SM just has a bad track record that speaks for itself. You don't have any proof the 60 artists are satisfied either... just that they are still under SM.

    But ugh I don't want to argue about this. I just wanted to make a point that making SM&JYP seem like they are sooo much better is a joke when they have done way worse.

  176. JYJ did not win. LMAO Can you please come back to reality.

    And why do JYJ stans always bring up Shinhwa and HOT issues when neither sued to leave and Shinhwa specifically stated that THEY WERE GOING TO RE-SIGN WITH SM!!!! They only went to another company bc they wanted to stay as a group since SM only offered solo contracts to 5 of the 6 artists. Shinhwa members themselves said this. Go and watch their WIN WIN interviews. And, they only sued to use their name since being a group was important to them and they wanted to stay Shinhwa.

    So, stop repeating lies spread by stupid haters. HOT said there was a misunderstanding between the members. The 3 left but to this day, none of the 3 HOT members that left ever talked badly about SM or LSM.

    Even when JYJ got their injunction granted, no one else sued with them. That means people were satisfied. All Suju boys re-signed their contracts and I'm pretty sure SNSD will as well.

    You aren't in SM. You don't know anyone who works in SM so just stfu thinking you know all there is to know about SM just by listening to lies being spread. LIES without any proof, I might add.

  182. It's obvious you have no idea what you are talking about. No idol is an employee. They don't get a paycheck every 2 weeks like some salaryman. They don't get to clock out for lunch. They aren't guaranteed a paycheck just bc they worked hard.



    If you are luck enough to be picked, you get polished up and then trained. If you are really lucky, you get fangirls who will actually buy your music. If they buy enough for the company to recoup the cost of the training and your living expenses, then you get to share in the profit.


    All of them knew what they were getting themselves into. For God sake, wasn't Junsu in SM for 100 years before debuting? All 5 were happy to sign on the dotted line with their parent's full consent.



    So, no, you don't get to just break a legal document without consequences just bc you realize you have enough crazy fangirls to support you no matter what you do.
