– “BTS and EXO performances are truly different. Their situation is now an example of how you must have a solid backing to survive. EXO is a real success, but 2018 is BTS years no matter what anyone says, and must recognize all three BTS stages are even better!”.

– “From all sides, BTS is at the top of the last year but EXO is the last one! People don’t even know EXO last year to issue anything.How many people are there now? This is a testimony to abuse of company power. The audience is looking out”.

Last year they couldn’t do anything, all 3 stations are basically trying to create a SM party and invite talented artists from other medium-sized companies to come and have fun!”

– “Speaking objectively, both BTS and EXO are no longer in the same class to make comparisons. If BTS is Kim Yuna then EXO is Sotnikova. It’s like giving a gold medal to Sotnikova instead of Kim Yuna , EXO is not worthy of the end of the year after all of BTS’s achievements over the past year. The audience has the right to be angry and this is only worse if it continues. “

This information led many netizens criticize that SM exploits their idols, makes up 95% of the sales from the album. Stars of SM has been famous for selling disks, always leading in the list of entire Kpop disks sales. The company takes almost the full amount, which is not fair, causing damage to the effort of the idol. This is also the reason why many EXO, DBSK sued the company, claiming left the group.

However, there are also many fans against that the stars of SM make money primarily thanks to the international tours, where they receive up to 70% of the revenue, the highest in the companies. International concert performances always attract a larger number of fan, the ticket price is more expensive, more locations in South Korea. In fact, stars of SM though not floating as before still earn money thanks to going international tour.

The level of profits of JYP also received many compliments about the fairness. The way to devide is 50:50. Although JYP has no profits as high as 2 other companies that are SM and YG, but fans always believe that the artists aren’t exploited and receive remuneration right to all their hard work.

The stars in the FNC have difficulties at first because they need to earn enough money for company training break-even shall be divided into income. AOA, Juniel thus whined because no money was divided at the time they begin to debut.

The Rules Of YG With Black Pink And iKON

Has always been known as one of the leading entertainment companies in Korea, however YG entertainment has some rules with their “chickens house” made fans angry.


Kpop has always been seen by spectators as beautiful dressed bands and shine on stage. However, behind them are the strict regulations required artists to adhere and follow them, so as to limit the unnecessary scandal.

Black Pink With “7 No” Regulation

Black Pink is a girl music band which has subverted Korean music scene since their debut. On June 29, YG entertainment announced the official lineup of Black Pink. With the rigorous training process and the remarkable achievements since appeared, the girl band was expected to usurp the rank of the “National Music Band” of SNSD.

In the Party People program, Black Pink has revealed 7 bans were considered quite harsh: no dating, no drinking, no smoking, no surgery, not go clubbing, no tattoos and no driving.

These prohibitions are considered to be not difficult to understand for an idol music band to ensure the most beautiful image in the public eye of the band. Though the company has strict regulations, but YG president can also change one of the provisions when the group be more successful in their career.

iKON With The Rule… “Forbidden” To Meet Junior Black Pink

In addition, on February 2nd, Bobby of iKON band also shared about the prohibition of dating to the music band’s members. No matter where they are, they are required to inform the company beforehand.

What is more surprising is iKON shared that they will be reprimanded if meeting the girl music band in the same company is Black Pink. That means that until now, iKON might still has not seen this girl band in the same company with them. Many people believe that the company YG is a very nice, fun and freedom. However, we have to accept that this company still has a lot of strict rules required their artist to follow and observe seriously.

How Many Years After Working Kpop Idols Will Be Allowed To Comfortable Dating By The Company Management?

Each management company will have different ways to manage love story of idol, but the simplest measure is still prohibited dating in a specified period.

The dating for the idol is one thing extremely risky and dangerous. If dating, they will lose a sizable fan base, even be in danger of affecting the industry as the case of Hyuna and E’Dawn recently. Soon clearly know this, many management companies have formed the rules prohibits idol dating for several years after their debut, so they don’t neglect their career.

JYP – 3 years

To let their artists focus on career, JYP would ban dating within the first 3 years. For example, as the early dating story of Suzy and Lee Min Ho, not only not be denied but also on the contrary the couple were supported by JYP very much. However, there were a few cases not as expected as the story of Mina (Twice) and Bam Bam (GOT7), when both were involved in a suspicious of dating before the time runs out “banning” But in general is the idol of the JYP love very quietly and rarely meet the scandal about dating.

YG – 5 years

YG gave the order to ban for loving in the first 5 years with their idols. The male and female idols were arranged different lunch time to avoid meeting. Changhyuk (AKMU) shared that: “Yang Hyunsuk CEO just allowed me to date, because it helps me write the lyrics. However, the chairman did not allow Suhyun to do it, because she’s too young “.

As for BLACKPINK, father Yang also especially instructed the girls should stay away from men to focus for the industry. BLACKPINK also says: “Nothing is changed in the prohibition of dating of the company’s contracts. We sing “As if it’s Your Last” and think about our fans – those we love most”.

Pledis Entertainment – Over 3 years

The artists of Pledis are no exception, the girls in the Pristin band tell that they are banned for dating from 3 years minimum. For some profit-making music bands, this time will extend to about 4-5 years. That’s the reason why Pledis Entertainment’s artists almost never involved in any scandal of dating.

SM – Not prohibited

Although SM very harshes in training and management issues but quite easily in the dating of their “chickens”. Most of the idols could date if they want to. SM also encouraged house’s chicken dating to the same people in the company. In part by meeting easily, difficult to detect, in part to easily handle every scandal breaking out. However, though dating outside or within the company with the tight schedule even not enough time to sleep, then will the idols of SM are healthy enough and time to date?

Big Hit – Not prohibited

PD Bang Si Hyuk is different, the CEO of Big Hit allows BTS to date and does not prohibit the love stories of BTS’s members from the original. “Kingpin” of the Big Hit is extremely confident to BTS, the evidence is that without any rules or bans, the members still manage themselves so well to fulfill their dreams. Despite being debut almost 5 years but look, their boys still have a pleasing with fan and don’t set a date with anyone.

Compared with the old days, the “Mr. Big” now has more comfortable in managing the personal lives of the idols. Even dating, just need the idols of them don’t affect the schedule and work. Hope in the future, our idols will receive more sympathy from fans to ease the pressure between private life and work.
