yg’s misogyny and bullshit

I wanted to make this post a long time ago and I guess now is a good time to post it. 

  • Yg has been talking about a debuting new girl group since 2011 and since then two boy groups have debuted, and some trainees thought to debut in the girl group have left 
  • Gummy, a former female soloist in yg, left the company because none of her music was being released and her albums kept being pushed back 
  • Big Bang and ikon got like 5 consecutive comebacks last year and there was pretty much no activity from female artists
  •  2ne1 and lee hi have not/ did not release anything for two years
  • Yg telling lee hi she “needs to improve” even though she is already super talented. This led to her working with tablo bc yg didnt do shit to help her
  •  Yg constantly saying bom needs to reflect, and never defending her while she’s dealing with depression, all while when other artists get involved in scandals they are able to release music to heal and show they are a better person (big bang) 
  • Literally postponing 2ne1s comeback and putting immense pressure on cl to do well in the US.  “As of now, we are focusing on CL’s American debut. After she does well [in America], we will think of [plans for] 2NE1,” and added, “2NE1 is contracted until next year.”
  • Lee chanhyuk asked yg to give his sister a solo while in the military so she isn’t dumped to the side in the yg building 
  •  Yg purposely ignoring his former girl group swi.t because he had a crush on his now wife “They would’ve done really well if I had invested more into that group,” he said. “But I was afraid that she would catch on, and so I purposely paid less attention to that group,” Yang Hyun Suk added, admitting he had a secret crush on her for 3 years.
  • Girl group “SuPearls” consisting of lee hi and other kpop star contestants disbands before they even debut, ultimately wasting the time of all the girls
  •  And now, Minzy leaving 2ne1 because of lack of activity and yg doing nothing to help her 

Thank you for all the years you have spent with 2NE1. Thank you for loving your members and your fans. Thank you for waiting for 2NE1 Thank you for all that you have done.
I am sorry that you had to drop out of school to focus on a band that was constantly pushed aside in favour of others. I am sorry that you had to work under a man who was constantly critical and demeaning. I am sorry that your potential was not shared with the world. I am sorry that you had to leave the place you grew up in.
You will have my, and hopefully a lot of other blackjacks full support in all your solo activities. Please take care of yourself and be happy. I love you.

This week on Tumblr...

Kpop blogs I follow: SM comfirmed Kaistal! YG comfirmed that Minzy left 2NE1! Block B album where you at? Got7 winning the fucking Grammys next time… Crush.T breakup! DeanxCrush vs Zion.T? Eric NamxWGM vs Monsun? Seventeen album (call me) soon! BTS where you aaaaat? Winner’s (too) long haitus issue! HOW BIG IS BAMBAM?!!! Jay Park vs Zino vs Stephanie! Will Wonho ever get ramen?

That one nonkpop blog I follow: Doris Day looks good af for a 92-year-old what is her secret? 

During the 2NE1 drought, wasn’t Minzy trying to make her own music and posting it on social media? The girl wanted to make music. The girl wanted to work. How do you as a company see someone’s drive and be like ‘nah, sit down’. Lee Hi couldn’t take it anymore either and went to Tablo! It’s sad Minzy turned down the contract renewal but you can’t blame her. It would honestly be signing up to continue to do nothing.
