On today’s broadcast of KBS Entertainment Relay, Big Bang’s comeback and the controversies from last year were brought up again, but it was exaggerated to a major extent. KBS stated that when they called YGE for an interview regarding this situation recently, they refused to answer the calls because they had information “to hide”. They have been making excuses that YGE, G-Dragon, and Daesung have been telling lies throughout this whole controversy. They are saying that Big Bang’s comeback is still too early and have also taken a poll without anyone’s acknowledgement.
Here is an official article released on Nate just a few minutes ago. I would suggest reading the whole thing before you go on to read my other explanations.
On KBS “Entertainment Relay”, the controversies of Big Bang’s sudden comeback and incidents from last year were brought up along with very suitable statements.
With the recent news of Big Bang’s new comeback, a lot of heated reviews have been made. Especially with the public appearance both Daesung and G-Dragon made asking for the public’s forgiveness.
The first major issue that was covered on this day’s episode was of the time Daesung (appeared on Healing Camp and) showed his gratefulness and sorriness, “At the funeral, the family of the deceased got very angry with me. However, the aunt and older brother of the victim came to me personally after some time had passed. They told me, ‘We cannot changed what has already happened and we do not want you leaving what you have behind. We want to see you working harder and smiling on television more often.’”
But regarding this situation, Entertainment Relay’s staff was able to personally meet the mother of the deceased and asked about it. The mother responded, “He (Daesung) never even came near here (the house). Even at the funeral, we couldn’t even see his face,” and that Daesung had shown up for one of the funeral days, but never even met up with the victim’s parents.
Accordingly, many viewers of tonight’s episode have been commenting, “So what if he didn’t see them? It wasn’t his fault and he didn’t want to purposely kill the man.” And in regards to the settlement money, the parents stated, “We have not gotten any.” With the parents living through hardship in a poor environment, it saddened the viewers as they were watching them throughout this interview.
On one hand, Daesung was acquitted for the accident and had released announcements of a new drama production only after four months. G-Dragon had also continued to film television advertisements even after his marijuana controversy.
Some arguments are being made that they are taking advantage of the suspension of indictment and acquittance that were given upon them.
Currently, 63.6% of South Korea has taken a poll that Big Bang’s comeback is still too early.
KBS has always been on bitter terms with YG Entertainment and this is not the first time they are trying to start fire with them. Although it may seem like the whole country is against Big Bang because of all this, many people are still trying to keep their faith in Big Bang after they have made appearances on Healing Camp. We also have to keep in mind that KBS did not ask SBS for permission to use the clips from Healing Camp included in tonight’s episode of Entertainment Relay. Just shows how irresponsible KBS is. Also, KBS works with DISPATCH, a news agency that has also been on bitter terms with YG Entertainment.
Here are a few of the netizens comments being made regarding this whole situation:
- I felt I was chewing and stepping on shit the entire time I was watching tonight’s episode. Tonight’s broadcast was so obviously made just to talk shit on Big Bang and Block B. Watching this today just makes you realize how low of a broadcast agency they are. With this broadcast, I hope we get to hear an official announcement from YG Entertainment. I also felt bad for the victim’s mother. Did they really have to go to her and make her go through the pain again? Entertainment Relay is just so disagreeable.
- FALSE BROADCAST. From the very beginning, YGE and Daesung have paid for the funeral costs and compensation. They have already paid for everything. And it’s a lie that YGE didn’t answer their calls. The reporter who released this article had tweeted earlier that CEO Yang Hyun Suk personally visited the Entertainment Relay office to discuss matters, but as this episode was being broadcasted, the tweet was immediately deleted. That is proof that they were able to get into contact with each other. This reporter has always been known to have a strong disliking for YG Entertainment. Tweets are always directly made to diss them. Being a reporter and having no objectivity is just wrong. Today’s broadcast of Entertainment Relay was an episode of lies and false statements. At the end when the MCs said that they are a program that only conveys the truth, they snickered and smirked.
- I watched today’s episode, but I ended up changing the channel. Yes, it’s true that Big Bang’s comeback is still too early, but the episode today was just a flat-out way of talking shit on Big Bang. I honestly do feel horrible for the victim’s family, but where in the world did Daesung hear those words of consolation if he didn’t hear it from the aunt or older brother..?
- KBS, DISPATCH, Kim Yong Ho (the reporter known for having bitter opinions of YGE and all idol groups).. today’s episode was all created by them. Makes sense. It was just an episode made to bring Big Bang and YG Entertainment down. It’s obviously that they’re mad because YGE artists didn’t attend a concert that was hosted by KBS this year. I understand that they could feel upset and everything, but this is no way to behave just to take revenge on them. It just isn’t right.
Also, Daesung has stated that the aunt and older brother of the victim were the only members of the victim’s family that actually went out of their way to meet him. They were also the two people who gave all interview answers during last year when the controversy broke out and the two were also the ones who stated that the victim’s parents were unaware of the entire accident at the time. There is a very high possibility that the settlement costs, compensation, and apologies were mainly made to the aunt and older brother, not the victim’s parents. Which all describes how they did not meet or see Daesung after the very first time at the funeral.
KBS is trying really to get their ratings up and to get their “revenge” on YG Entertainment. Not only did they dig up all this shit to get back on Big Bang, but they even dragged in other celebrity controversies along with Block B’s recent incident. What does this tell you about KBS? With Reporter/Journalist Kim Yong Ho, who is infamous for his shit tweets about all idols, you can’t get anything good out of this.
