Fans of 2NE1 ‘s Park Bom and Big Bang ‘s Seungri expressed alarm when YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun Suk unfollowed both idols on Instagram.
Last year saw a car accident scandal involving Seungri and drug scandal involving Park Bom , so fans had feared that the Yang Hyun Suk’s actions reflected a souring relationship between him and the two idols.
But he reassured fans with a detailed explanation of his actions.
He said that he “does not have a problem” with Bom and Seungri, and that unfollowing both idols was only because they were not really that active on Instagram.
“To be honest, I’m from the analogue era, so I may only use an SNS like Instagram once or twice a year.
Recently, I went on to make a post to congratulate Jinusean on their long-awaited comeback, and I took measures to follow the people who are using SNS a lot lately,” Yang Hyun Suk reportedly said, according to a translation from Allkpop .
“The people I originally followed on Instagram were Big Bang’s G-Dragon,Taeyang, Seungri, and 2NE1’s CL, Park Bom, and Dara.
Just 6 people, who I followed when I first started Instagram.
In Park Bom’s case, she doesn’t really use Instagram these days, so I stopped following her.
G-Dragon as well as Taeyang use it often so I left their accounts.” “Big Bang’s new song will be out soon, so why would I unfollow Seungri for any particular reason? I have no problem with either Seungri or Park Bom.
I didn’t know that who I follow on Instagram would be such a big deal,” he ended.
