Is YG really housing criminals and iljins?
Before anything else, I must say, I am a certified YG stan. So, what I would be saying here would seem biased to some. But nonetheless, I am close to getting pissed with all those negative and close-minded comments about Park Bom, Nam Tae Hyun and even Jennie Kim, add to that PSY and Tablo, so I decided to share my opinion on all these and perhaps show another possible side as to why YG might have brought them in under his care.
As we all know, YGE is currently being labeled in it’s mother country by some as “trash”, “messed-up”, “house of criminals”, etc. All these were based on groundless rumors, incomplete details, and rooted hate for the company by several people.
Automatically, once a rumor starts to spread or an artist’s past starts to get dug up, it will spread like wildfire. And during the process, new unconfirmed information or misheard stories will be added on to the actual story making it a different one, even nastier or more ruthless if it’s a negative one. Come to think of it, no rumor has ever come out as the whole truth-only patched up pieces of truth and lies, and made up stories.
And so, I won’t believe anything I have read or heard nor would I deny their authenticity. I won’t do so until I see genuine proof and admission from the artists’ themselves. Anyways, what matters to me now is the person they are right now, not who they were in the past.
Everyone deserves a second chance.
We are not perfect. We are all created to fall down and pick ourselves up in order to become stronger and wiser.
Who are we to judge another person based on their past?
We should not enclose any person in a box and label them according to their past especially if we have no idea what they went through, why they acted that way. For all we know, YGE might have took them in in order to help them start anew.
Have you ever heard of individuals who lost their way, who have no dreams nor visions in life? To me, if all these rumors were true, I’d rather think positively about YGE.
Why give this kind of people the means to live another kind of life?
Because, most probably, they want to give them the opportunity to dream… to have a vision.
People shine the brightest when they know they only have one chance to prove themselves, to show others that they could change for the better.
Maybe this is the reason why no matter how trashy you say YGE is as a company, their music still remains top calibre.
Creating music is an art form. Art is an expression of one’s ideals, dreams, experiences, and feelings. They were able to create some of the world’s most beautiful music because they express it with their hearts.
Now, would you say YG houses criminals and iljins?
I would rather say, just like the Philosopher’s Stone which was believed to be capable of turning base metals into gold or silver, YG chanced upon these persons and honed them to become who they are now.
They discovered what they’re really capable of, that they are not really worthless, because someone believed in them.
