Article talks about how Big Hit has hired over 100 IT professionals in the past year, including several senior and veteran names. Their aim is to create an online performance platform and create more IT-based content.

1. [+243, -3] Since BTS is hitting a wall with the army enlistments coming up, it seems like their management is going to expand into the gaming and IT industry

2. [+188, -9] Well, there's no guarantee that Big Hit will still be this big in 10 years, but I think this is a better business plan than what Yang Hyun Suk did with YG with all his gambling and drugs. Big Hit will be up there in no time once they get listed.

3. [+194, -41] This is something that YG could've never thought of. Big Hit is putting their Seoul University network to good use.

- YG had a merger with Kangwon Land

- I think it just shows that Big Hit doesn't have the confidence to train and debut an entire new group, while the big 3 can

- That's true, how can you possibly create another BTS?

4. [+92, -35] It's not like Big Hit has any other successful group besides BTS. The rest are utter flops... I guess Big Hit will become a gaming company once BTS goes to the army?

5. [+30, -11] Sounds like they're trying to make a game... with the BTS characters and all. Who would play that other than their fans? I wouldn't, and it'd be embarrassing to be caught playing it.

6. [+11, -0] These employees will quit and sell all their stocks once they get listed ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+10, -0] I think the media is blowing this up to be bigger than it is ㅋ Big Hit is obviously seeing limitations in the entertainment industry so they're trying to warm up to the IT industry but it's not like they have as much merit as Kakao. There's too many risks involved. 

8. [+9, -0] I think it's a smart way to expand the company. YG is too focused with opening clubs, bars, and restaurants.

9. [+10, -2] I just hope Big Hit isn't being too greedy

10. [+5, -2] I have a bad feeling about this

11. [+4, -1] Are they feeling the heat with Naver investing in SM and working together? Just because they hired some IT talents doesn't make them an IT company ㅋㅋㅋ

12. [+2, -0] Big Hit will be going up against Naver~ I remember Naver used to ignore all articles about BTS and only put out articles about SM..
