BIGBANG G-Dragon: Last Minute Decision on Company Change Despite All Set to Renew Contract with YG
Legendary Kpop icon G-Dragon of BIGBANG recently signed with a new company, Galaxy Corporation. This decision reportedly occurred at the last minute after the rapper abruptly changed his mind. Before he decided to sign with the new Korean company, G-Dragon was reportedly all set to renew his contract with YG Entertainment. And according to Korean media, he decided to change course before everything settled.
Sports Seoul reported a few days ago that BIGBANG G-Dragon was supposed to renew his contract with YG Entertainment. Everything was ready and set in place, with the Korean music industry waiting for the official news from G-Dragon and YG. He was supposed to sign an exclusive contract with YG for all his new and upcoming album releases.
That is until the alleged drug suspicion occurred. Various reports poured in against G-Dragon and the suspicion of him abusing drugs. That was when everything changed.
What Happened to G-Dragon and YG: Lack of Support and Disappointment in the Korean Company
According to multiple reports, once the drug allegation occurred, YG Entertainment did not provide enough support. Instead of defending G-Dragon’s innocence, the Korean entertainment company repeatedly refused to comment on the situation.
Worse, even after GD was ready to renew their contract, YG denied their involvement. Instead, the Korean company claimed they had nothing to do with BIGBANG G-Dragon.
“We can’t give an official response since he’s currently not an artist with our company.”YG Entertainment on GD’s drug allegation.
In like manner, industry insiders predicted that YG had no other choice but to deliver such responses. That is because their CEO, Yang Hyun Suk, was also under investigation. That is why they weren’t able to provide enough defense for GD.
“Supporting G-Dragon might have been tough for YG, especially with CEO Yang Hyun Suk facing an investigation by the prosecution.”industry insider.
Galaxy Corporation Saved the Day – YG was Furious!
On the contrary, the new Korean company Galaxy Corporation entered the scene and saved the day. During such challenging situations, Galaxy Corporation was the one who stepped forward. In a situation where BIGBANG G-Dragon couldn’t make official responses himself, the new Korean company stepped in with endless advice.
According to Korean media, the CEO of Galaxy Corporation, Choi Yong Ki maintained his close relationship with GD. The CEO actively protected him and assisted him with various legal advice during the drug case issues.
Due to this close relationship, the media began releasing reports about GD’s possibility of signing with Galaxy Corporation. Apparently, these reports then angered YG’s CEO, Yang Hyun Suk. He then demanded G-Dragon to sever ties with the new Korean company and immediately sign his new contract with YG.
“Clean up your relationship with Galaxy, and let’s just sign a new contract with YG.”Yang Hyun Suk.
However, instead of fulfilling Yang Hyun Suk’s wishes, G-Dragon signed with Galaxy Corporation instead. This decision—according to Korean media—was due to GD’s disappointment in YG.
BIGBANG G-Dragon is Paving a New Path in the Korean Music Industry
With this bold move, BIGBANG G-Dragon is paving a new path in the Korean music industry. After signing with the new company, G-Dragon announced various significant decisions. These decisions include establishing a foundation for drug rehabilitation and a new album comeback.
Regarding his new path, YG Entertainment eventually wished G-Dragon a bright future.
“We wholeheartedly hope for a wonderful new beginning and kindly request our fans’ support and encouragement.”YG Entertainment.
Korean media reported that this statement was a result of a joint discussion between G-Dragon and YG Entertainment.
Finally, G-Dragon’s decision to part ways with YG Entertainment marks a significant turning point in his illustrious career.
The saga that unfolded around the drug allegations and the lack of support from YG paints a picture of an industry in flux, where loyalty and reputation are constantly tested. G-Dragon’s choice to align with Galaxy Corporation speaks volumes about his priorities and vision for the future.
